I absolutely love the Apple Watch Ultra. It is great and not too big as I was anticipating it to be. One major cool thing I found with the Ultra is the flipped action button. This is how theverge.com describes it; “The Apple Watch action button’s sole purpose is to do your bidding”, and I agree with them. Another interesting quote from theverge.com states: “Other smartwatches let you program hotkeys, but the Action Button on the Apple Watch Ultra can also trigger custom Shortcuts.”
What is Action Button on the Apple Watch Ultra
The Action Button is a programmable physical button that’s exclusive to the Ultra. Unlike the digital crown or side button, it isn’t hard coded to do any one thing. Instead, you can program it to do anything you want.
Apple placed the button on the side of the watch opposite the digital crown, right next to the speaker grille. And it’s designed to be hard to miss: It’s incredibly orange. It’s incredibly orange, an internationally recognized orange, which is used by the aerospace industry to visually distinguish objects from their surroundings. The choice suggests that the button ought to stand out and is meant for adventurous people. If you are an adventurous person like me then, the Ultra is for you.
Who must get the Ultra
Apple Watch Ultra is aimed at athletes, sports enthusiasts, and adventurous guys that need more battery life and more sport-specific performance from their devices. Built for adventure, exploration, and endurance. It is a bit big though, thus, if your hands are as tiny as mine.
The watch is 49mm, which is 4mm larger than the 45mm Apple Watch Series 8 being sold alongside it. It sports three built-in microphones to improve sound quality, and a beamforming algorithm that captures voice while reducing ambient background sounds even when it’s noisy outdoors. The is an 86-decibel siren available for drawing help if needed, with two SOS patterns.
It lasts for up to 36 hours on a single charge, and with a new low-power setting, battery life can last for up to 60 hours for multi-day adventuring. The battery lasts long enough for users to complete a long-course triathlon that includes a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a full 26.2-mile marathon.
The Watch Ultra features dual-frequency GPS, integrating both the L1 and L5 frequencies, plus it has new positioning algorithms. It provides the most accurate GPS of any Apple Watch, which means it also offers precise distance, pace, and route data for training and competing. the Apple Watch Ultra can withstand a wider temperature range
For water sports, the Apple Watch Ultra can hold up to kitesurfing, wakeboarding, and recreational scuba diving, activities not recommended for the standard Apple Watch models.
I promise you, you will love the Apple Watch Ultra.
