The next generation Apple Watch will be announced.

The new Apple Watch Series 9 looks as follows. There doesn't seem to be any new changes to the exterior design.

Featuring the all-new S9 SiP, which significantly improves performance and functionality.

The S9 chip has been redesigned internally.

The S9 CPU has 5.6 billion transistors, which is 60% more than the Series 8.

GPU is 30% faster than Series 8.

Furthermore, it is equipped with a 4-core Neural Engine.

Process machine learning tasks up to 2x faster.

The battery maintains a battery life of 18 hours that can be used all day.

Apple Watch Series 9 adds new features and system-wide improvements.

Siri requests can now be processed on Apple Watch.

This allows you to use Siri functions even when you are offline.

Apple Watch Series 9's voice input is said to be up to 25% more accurate than Series 8.

Additionally, health data can be recorded using just voice.

The ability to manage health data by voice will be available in English and Chinese by the end of 2023.

You will also be able to exchange contact information without contact.

Also, the ability to call the iPhone will be enhanced.

Apple Watch Series 9 will be equipped with a new second-generation Ultra Wideband wireless chip.

As a result, when searching for your iPhone from your Apple Watch, the distance and direction to your iPhone will be displayed.

There's also tactile and audio feedback.

Other media suggestions automatically appear at the top of the Smart Stack, so you can quickly launch playlists and podcasts.

The brightness is up to 2000 nits, twice as bright as the Series 8.

Also, in dark places such as movie theaters and theaters, the brightness will decrease to a minimum of 1 nit.

And the big highlight is ``gesture-based operation.''

If you are wearing an Apple Watch, tap your index finger and thumb twice.

Then you can answer the call without touching the screen.

This double tap controls the main button, so you can also use it to play/pause music or snooze an alarm.

You can also open the smart stack from the watch face.

This gesture recognition function is made possible by detecting small movements and changes in blood flow and analyzing them with Apple Watch Series 9's 4-core Neural Engine.

The Apple Watch case is made from 100% recycled aluminum.

The battery uses 100% recycled cobalt for the first time.

The sports loop has also been redesigned.

Manufactured using 82% recycled fibers.

Stay soft and comfortable.

Reduces carbon footprint by 78%.

This makes Apple Watch Series 9 the first Apple product to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint.

The cosmetic case will have a new logo to mark this.

Furthermore, we have developed a fabric that is beautiful, high quality, and highly durable.

That is fine woven.

This loop has a delicate luster and a suede-like feel.

Introducing four new styles of straps that take advantage of Hermès' long history in fabrics.

The first knit material strap and sporty molded rubber strap.

Additionally, our collaboration with Nike repurposes leftover and discarded materials to reduce the use of unprocessed materials.

The design creates a random pattern and highlights the individuality of each band.

The Nike Sport Loop reuses threads from past seasons.
