At Apple's

new product launch event held at 2:00 on Thursday, September 8, 2022, the `` Apple Watch Ultra '', a model equipped with a highly durable and large display that is compatible with harsh conditions such as mountain climbing and diving, was announced. . At the same time as the event was held, some media had the opportunity to actually touch the Apple Watch Ultra at the Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, USA, and photos and videos were reported on Twitter, so I tried to summarize it. .

Apple Watch Series 8, SE, and Ultra hands-on: triple the fun - The Verge

The state of the experience meeting posted by media moderator EMKWAN is as follows.

You can also see Apple's CEO Tim Cook actually wearing Apple Watch Ultra in the following movie.

While the titanium model of Apple Watch Series 7 (45 mm) weighs 45.1 g, the weight of Apple Watch Ultra is 61.3 g, which is about 1.36 times the weight of the main body. The IT news site The Verge said, ``I felt lighter than I thought because the case was made of titanium.'' He also noted that the screen, which has a brightness of up to 2000 nits, is quite bright.

As shown in the picture below, the crown and side buttons of the Apple Watch Ultra are grouped into large protrusions.

Also, in the following movie published by Mr. EMKWAN, the Apple Watch Series 7 band is attached to the Apple Watch Ultra. If you look closely, it seems that the width of the band's mounting part is slightly insufficient for the width of the Apple Watch Ultra, but EMKWAN reports that ``Apple Watch Series 7 bands can probably be used with Apple Watch Ultra.'' .

Science and technology writer iJustine also publishes a movie where he actually picked up the Apple Watch Ultra.

Input of IT news media evaluates that '(Apple Watch Ultra) is not as big as it looks', 'The large screen is wonderful', and 'The band is also good'. In the movie, you can see where the screen is switched using the action button on the left side, and where the main unit is tilted to turn on the display.

Neil Seibert, an Apple-related analyst, compares the Apple Watch Series 7 (45 mm size) and Apple Watch Ultra at the same time. The Apple Watch Ultra has a flat display, and the crown and buttons are larger so that it is easier to operate even through thick gloves and diver suits, so it has an impression that it is one size larger than the Apple Watch Series 7.

Adrian Weckler, MC of the IT podcast 'Big Tech Show', also compares Apple Watch Series 7 (45 mm size) and Apple Watch Ultra. The body size of Apple Watch Series 7 (45 mm) is 45 mm × 38 mm × 10.7 mm, and the body size of Apple Watch Ultra is 49 mm × 44 mm × 14.4 mm. You can clearly see the difference in thickness.

PC-related news media PCMag commented, 'Apple Watch Ultra looks good.'
