Apple has announced a smartwatch for professional athletes and extreme sports enthusiasts, calling it the Apple Watch Ultra.
The 49mm case of the Apple Watch Ultra is made of titanium, the watch received a flat sapphire crystal and a special frame that protects the screen from damage during impacts.
In addition, the Apple Watch Ultra has an additional programmable button, an additional speaker, and the Digital Crown has been enlarged.
Apple said that in normal mode, the Apple Watch Ultra can last up to 36 hours on a single charge, which is longer than any other watch. But there is also a special mode in which the watch will work up to 60 hours.
Apple Watch Ultra supports improved GPS with more accurate positioning. The new button in the Apple Watch Ultra is called the Action Button, with its help, you can, for example, start a specific workout.
The new speaker, in particular, is used to activate the siren, which can be heard at a distance of up to 190 m.
The price of new items is 800 dollars.
Some Apple Watch Ultra owners complain about the “jelly screen” like the iPad mini
Some Apple Watch Ultra owners have begun to complain about the “jelly screen” that other Apple watches don’t have.
At least a few of these users have already been found on the Reddit forums, but it is not yet clear how massive the problem is and whether it exists at all, or whether it only seems to watch owners.
The latest iPad mini has this issue, and Apple acknowledges the fact but denies it’s a problem. The company explains that this is a feature of the LCD screen, which updates line by line. However, the Watch Ultra has an AMOLED screen, and it is still difficult to say what could be the reason for this behavior.
It remains to be seen that there are more watch owners who see the same effect. In this case, perhaps Apple itself will comment on the situation.
No, the Apple Watch Ultra is not a copy of the iPhone 14. The repairability of the watch is not up to par
iFixit specialists dismantled the Apple Watch Ultra smart watch. They did not rate the maintainability, but the review makes it clear that after the iPhone 14, they expected more from the new product.
Despite the presence of screws and the ease of removing the back cover, immediately after that there is the first problem. Apple uses a thin rubber pad to implement increased water resistance, and replacing it will be extremely difficult. But on the other hand, as we have already seen today, the watch is indeed able to withstand immersion to a depth of more than 40 meters.
In addition, it will be very difficult to dismantle the screen without damaging it. Here and persistent glue, and the wrong angle of prying.
And the bottom line is that it is the screen that needs to be dismantled in order to get to the battery. As a result, Watch Ultra disappointed iFixit specialists, but judging by the review, the watch is no worse than previous generations in terms of maintainability.
Apple Watch Ultra can withstand diving deeper than 40 meters, which Apple says
Yesterday the Apple Watch Ultra was hit with a hammer, today we can see how they tried to drown it.
New Apple, recall, has an increased degree of protection, including from water. The company itself says that the watch can be submerged to a depth of 130 feet or up to 40 meters. As you can see, in the experiment, a pressure was created in a special chamber that is higher than what corresponds to the indicated depth, and the watch survived such an experiment without difficulty. By the way, after exceeding the above depth, the watch signals this and stops showing the exact value, indicating only that the threshold of 130 feet has been exceeded.
Apparently, the author did not create pressure higher than that which is at a depth of 160 feet or almost 50 meters. At the same time, it is worth remembering that, in general, Watch Ultra meets the specifications, which imply the possibility of diving to a depth of up to 100 meters, but so far no one has arranged such a test for the watch.
