The new Apple Watch Series 9 & Ultra 2

I nuovi Apple Watch Series 9 & Ultra 2

The brand new Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 have small differences compared to previous generations so they did not have the so-called "Wow" effect that could be expected, we do not want to stay here and list all the features that have already been widely praised by all reviewers around the world but we will limit ourselves to an overview of the main features:

Apple Watch 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 if it is true that there are no new sensors, the S9 chip is however new which according to Apple marks a decisive improvement compared to the previous S6 of 2020, renamed S7 the following year. Made with the same A15 chip technology as the iPhone, it has a dual-core CPU with 5.6 billion transistors, 60% more, and an up to 30% faster GPU for even smoother animations and effects in apps designed for watchOS 10.

What you see immediately is the display: Always-On retina as before, the same size but twice as bright, it reaches 2000 nits, and this means that it can be read better in broad daylight. But it also gets better at night, when brightness drops to as low as 1 nit in Sleep Focus mode.

Apple Watch Ultra 2

Apple Watch Ultra 2, which this year adds a 2 to the name, introduces the same innovations seen on the Series 9, with which it shares the new S9 and U2 chips. Here too the display is brighter - it goes from 2000 to 3000 nits - and the autonomy grows, reaching 72 hours of charge when the device is in energy saving mode. For the rest, no changes, apart from the exclusive Modular Ultra dial, full of information. Available in two shades of titanium, the price starts from 909 euros. So the most important innovations of the models presented last September 12th cannot be touched first-hand: one is the WatchOS 10 operating system, available on all models starting from the Series 4, the other is the certification as "Carbon Neutral" products .
