The Apple Watch has set itself up as a gold standard for wearable tech, and with the announcement of the Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and updated Apple Watch SE, the trend continues. Each new model will support more robust health tracking features for monitoring heart health, body temperature, sleep habits, and cycle tracking. And they’ll also have updated sensors and processors which work with the new fall and crash detection feature, which allows you to contact emergency services if you can’t reach your phone.
The Apple Watch Ultra is the most rugged model yet, designed with extreme outdoor sports in mind. It sports an aerospace-grade titanium case and sapphire crystal face for resisting everything from dust and rain to scratches, drops, and cracks. It’s also MIL-STD-810H certified for water, shock, and temperature resistance, so you can have peace of mind while camping, hiking, or diving.
