Greetings from Cupertino! I'm writing this from the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, where Apple just wrapped up its annual keynote presentation presenting all of the latest and greatest goodies and gadgets, including the iPhone 14 as well as three – count 'em, three : new types of Apple Watch. It's the largest and most comprehensive update to the top-of-the-line smartwatch yet. Apple company CEO Tim Cook, COO Jeff Williams, and Deidre Caldbeck, director of The apple company Watch product marketing, guided us through everything there is to know about the all-new Apple mackintosh Watch Ultra, Apple View Series 8, and Apple inc Watch SE.
Today's headlining news is the introduction of Apple Enjoy Ultra, a brand-spanking-new platform for Apple company company Watch that ratchets up the smartwatch's already impressive sport and activity tracking capabilities. It includes upgrades such as Iphone Watch's brightest display screen yet for legibility in intense sunlight, water resistance up to 100 meters with extended dive capabilities certified by EN 13319 (the international standard for jump computers), temperature resistance within extreme conditions (between -4° F and also 131° F), and an 86-decibel siren that can be activated and heard up to 600 feet away in emergency situations. Piece of fruit Watch Extremely features a redesigned case profile made of aerospace-grade titanium, as well as a flat sapphire crystal with an extra-large 49mm diameter.
Outside of the size, one of the most significant improvements here is the presence of a three-dimensional flank on the right side of the case which houses a good extra-large "Digital Crown" along with side control button. The new Digital Crown has a larger diameter in addition to deeper grooves than any previous crown, to ensure ease of use when wearing gloves. On the left side of the case, there's a new customizable "Action Button" in high-contrast orange that allows you to enable a more precise starting time for your workout as well as instant transition between different parts of a race or workout.
(In my opinion, the new flank causes Apple Watch Super to bear a slight resemblance towards the case design of the Patek Philippe Nautilus, which thanks to Ben's 2018 interview along with Jony Ive, we know is a favorite associated with Apple's former Chief Design Officer. )
Other updates on Apple company Watch Extra, compared to a standard Apple See, include the addition of a second speaker for increased volume, the biggest battery life yet with regard to Apple Observe with 36 hours regarding running autonomy on a single charge, plus 60 hours involving possible extended battery life utilizing a battery optimization setting that will Apple says it will announce later this fall. Sixty hours, it's worth noting, is enough time to complete an entire long-distance triathlon with GPS tracking turned on. Speaking of, the actual GPS performance has been reworked and updated with a new precision dual-signal link that connects to a combination of L1 plus L5 signals. Apple states it's the most accurate GPS NAVIGATION tracking system in a smartwatch on the market today.
The compass application has been completely upgraded, with the ability to add waypoints that will help you retrace your steps in case you get lost. The actual updated compass application also plays a big role in the release of a brand-new The apple company Watch face called "Wayfinder, " which (in my book) somewhat resembles the particular dial of the Breitling Navitimer and incorporates the compass on the dial of the watch (in inclusion to seven other "complications") and can be customized for whatever mountain, trail, or ocean you find yourself on or inside. There's even a Night Mode that turns the face red for better visibility in the dark.
