In a simple loudness test, the siren of an expensive Apple Watch Ultra beats a regular $4 whistle

The Verge decided to test the Apple Watch Ultra smart watch: the device was tested in the forest, in the ocean, at the stadium. A long video has been posted on YouTube (see below), but one of the tests turned out to be especially interesting – this is a test of the siren built into the clock.

As conceived by the creators, a loud siren (86 dB) in the event of an emergency will attract the attention of nearby people. Perhaps for certain situations (such as small enclosed spaces) a siren will really help to draw attention to yourself, but in open spaces it is nowhere near as effective as a regular whistle.

In The Verge test, the girl moved away from the guy until she could no longer hear the sound of the watch. Already after about 200 meters the siren could not be heard. Unlike a whistle: its sound ceased to be distinguishable at twice the distance – 404 m.

In the event of an emergency, it is also important how long you can signal it. In the case of a whistle, this can be done almost endlessly, but the autonomy of the watch, depending on the mode of use, is up to 36 hours.

Apple said that it has managed to attract many new customers to its smartwatches.

Is this the success of the expensive Watch Ultra?  Apple says two-thirds of its watch buyers last quarter were new customers

After publishing its latest quarterly report, the company revealed that in the past quarter, almost two-thirds of Apple Watch customers (nearly 66%) were new customers for this type of device, meaning they had never owned an Apple Watch before.

It is quite possible that this is due to the announcement of the Watch Ultra model, which, in general, is quite different from the usual versions, and is positioned differently.

At the same time, we know from the report that sales of wearable and home electronics in the last quarter at Apple decreased slightly. Unfortunately, Apple does not speak separately about watch sales – it is quite possible that sales have just grown in this segment.

Also recall that last year Apple took 85% of all profits in the smartphone market.
