Apple Watch Series 9 review: why you should buy it right now


Should you rush out and buy the Apple Watch Series 9? Yes, but also no, depending on what's on your wrist already. Our in-depth review explains everything.

Supreme 24/7 comfort Choice of size, color, and bands Extensive health, fitness, and safety features Fast, smooth, and usable performance Total, easy integration with the iPhone

Less than two days battery life with moderate use Almost no reason to upgrade from previous version

“The Apple Watch Series 9's 24/7 comfort, extensive features, fast performance, and seamless integration with the iPhone make it a must-buy.”

Powerful processor ; Bright display ; Double-tap gesture for hands-free operation ; On-device Siri ; Precision Finding for iPhone 15 family ; Carbon neutral build option

Familiar design

The Apple Watch Series 9 has a faster processor, a brighter display, and a more eco-friendly build than its predecessor, making it the best smartwatch for iPhone owners.

Review: Apple Watch Series 9


Apple's latest wearable has a new chip, new interactions, and some serious OS updates to help you log your mental health.

More efficient processor = better battery life. New pink color! Brighter screen for your lovely custom watch face. Useful haptic features. Finds your iPhone way faster. Daylight tracking is nifty. Double Tap is handy.

Looks mostly the same. Just like the Watch Ultra 2, too much of the experience is dependent on your iPhone. Do you want to log your entire personality on a watch?

Apple Watch Series 9 review: It’s time for a change


It's a great smartwatch, but more of the same

Gorgeous display ; Speedy S9 SiP ; Carbon neutral ; Double-tap gestures are useful ; Brighter display

Design still hasn’t changed ; Minor feature updates ; Battery life still underwhelming

Apple Watch Series 9 is a great smartwatch for all intents and purposes. The S9 SiP provides big speed boosts to Siri commands, and an improved display brightness helps in direct sunlight. But this slow-plodding rate of iterative updates is getting...

Apple Watch Series 9 Review: Minor changes


The Apple Watch Series 9 looks exactly like the previous models, but it has a new Double Tap gesture that is surprisingly useful and plain cool, and the new S9 SiP makes it run a bit faster than before...

Much brighter screen ; Siri responds faster to basic requests ; New Double Tap gesture looks promising ; Most accurate heart rate sensor in the industry

No major changes at all ; Battery life remains just one day ; No round shape option ; Only works with iPhones

Apple Watch Series 9 review: Don't settle for the less expensive models this year. Here's why


After spending two months with the Apple Watch Series 9, my hands-on tests found the world's most popular smartwatch is now more accurate at reading your body's health data.

Health sensors are more accurate and more sensitive ; Screen brightness has doubled for better outside use ; Improved battery life now easily lasts a full day ; Double-tap gesture improves one-handed use

No blood pressure tracking yet ; Valuable HRV data is only used by third party apps ; Sleep tracking is still better with third party apps ; Accuracy of Series 9 tracking calls older models into question

Apple Watch Series 9 long-term review: Persistent iteration


Apple didn't do anything drastically different with the Apple Watch Series 9, but it is still a fabulous choice if you want a premium smartwatch that nails the basics. The new double tap gesture and brighter screen are great, but the Series 9 doesn't...

Apple Watch Series 9 review three months later: Don't buy it for Double Tap


The Apple Watch Series 9 has been available for over three months, now with Double Tap and on-device Siri, but our day-to-day use hasn't changed much since moving from Apple Watch Series 8.
