WHICH APPLE WATCH MODEL IS WORTH BUYING?

APPLE WATCH ULTRA 2 OR APPLE WATCH SERIES 9?

Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Apple Watch Series 9 are now the latest models of Apple watches, which went on sale in September 2023.

Each of them offers a range of amazing features that can be used by both less and more advanced users - after all, not everyone needs a smartwatch that works at altitudes of up to 9,000 meters.

So which model will be the best choice for you - the Apple Watch Ultra 2, or perhaps the Apple Watch Series 9? In the following article we will try to answer this question.

APPLE WATCH ULTRA 2

Lightweight titanium envelope

Apple Watch Ultra is the first smartwatch in Apple's history with a titanium envelope. Unlike the Apple Watch Series 9, which offers a 45mm or 41mm envelope size, the Ultra 2 is only available with a 49mm envelope size. This makes the watch suitable to be worn mainly by men with extended hands.

The design of the watch itself also indicates that the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is aimed more at a male customer base. In addition, the watch is only available in titanium color.

Water resistance up to 100 meters

In addition to its larger size, the watch also offers better options for use in water sports. The water resistance rating of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is 100 meters, where the Apple Watch Series 9 has a water resistance rating of half that, or 50 meters.

Precise GPS

Another advanced feature available on the Ultra 2 is the precision dual-frequency GPS (L1 and L5), which guarantees high precision even in dense cities, as well as a depth gauge and water temperature sensor, which are not found on the Apple Watch Series 9.

APPLE WATCH SERIES 9

Apple Watch Series 9 is by far the most popular Apple Watch model today. While the changes compared to the Apple Watch Series 8 are minor, users of older generations will find a number of new features, such as a new Retina display, sleep phases, fast charging and more.

Aluminum or stainless steel envelope

Aluminum envelopes are available in the following colors: pink, midnight, moonlight, silver, red.

A more expensive option is a stainless steel envelope, which can be purchased in gold, silver, strong graphite.

Each envelope is available in two sizes: 41mm or 45mm.

Health functions and more

Like the Apple Watch Ultra 2, the Apple Watch Series 9 has a number of health sensors (ECG, notifications if heart rate is too high or low, etc.), but at the same time offers half the battery life and a lower class of water resistance.

It also does not have an ultra-accurate GPS and has not been adapted for use in extreme temperatures.

Nevertheless, it is an excellent option for all physically active people, as well as those who care about their health. A choice of different envelope sizes and a significantly lower price, also makes the Apple Watch Series 9 an ideal alternative to the large and much more expensive Apple Watch Ultra 2.

PRICES

  • Apple Watch Series 9 (GPS + Cellular) from £2749
