Apple Watch Ultra review: a big, exciting, overwhelming success


The Apple Watch Ultra may look like a niche product at first glance, but it's way more than that and has genuinely wide appeal. We explain why in our review.

Highly durable build Luxury materials Three-day battery life Expertly judged special features Characterful design Does everything the Series 8 does LTE as standard

Twice the price of the Series 8

“The Apple Watch Ultra's expertly made special features give it surprisingly wide appeal, with the long battery life and characterful, luxurious design making it a fantastic choice even for those not planning any daring adventures.”

Apple Watch Ultra review: an aspirational debut


The Apple Watch Ultra is big, a lil' chunky, and goes hard on features that the average Joe won't need in their everyday life. And at $799, it's the most expensive watch in the current Apple Watch lineup (Hermès edition excluded). After a week of...

Comfortable for the size ; Best battery life of any Apple Watch ; Comprehensive safety features ; Action button! ; Big screen is good for readability ; Improved durability ; All models come with cellular

Lacks recovery metrics ; No offline maps or turn-by-turn navigation ; More aspirational than hardcore ; Size may be too big for very petite wrists

Update, December 21, 11:00 AM ET : Updated to include results from further testing and the Ultra review video.

Apple Watch Ultra strap review: choose your fighter


Part of what makes the Apple Watch Ultra feel aspirational is the strap you pick at checkout. It's the smartwatch equivalent of getting sorted into a Hogwarts house — you're supposed to choose the strap based on the type of adventurer you are. Intrepid...

Comfortable and breathable ; Secure and highly adjustable ; The lightest, thinnest strap you can get ; Very secure, thanks to the G-hook ; Comfortable ; Good if you’re hiking in the rain ; The most fashion-forward of the three ; Definitely waterproof

It’s $99! ; So-so color options ; It’s $99!! ; G-hook is hard to take off quickly ; The orange one is ; so ; orange ; Did I mention it’s $99?! ; The removable clasp is finicky ; Not great for small wrists

If it’s simply a matter of aesthetics, I’d rather buy a third-party band. For $99, you could get at least six or seven attractive bands on Amazon, Etsy, and a dozen other places. Truly, there’s no limit to the styles and aesthetics you can find outside...

Apple Watch Ultra Review


Highly rugged and water resistant ; Much better battery life than other Apple watches ; Customizable Action button ; Emergency siren ; Cellular connectivity comes standard ; Louder speaker than Series 8 ; Tactile buttons work with gloved hands ;...

Large ; Expensive ; Digital Crown may irritate skin

Though bulky and expensive, the rugged Apple Watch Ultra is an excellent adventure-focused wearable with features that encourage exploration and keep you safe in the wild.

Apple Watch Ultra review: Does this wearable benefit non-fitness folks, too?


Built for fitness fanatics, but normal people can still get a kick out of it…

Bold, utilitarian design ; Gorgeous display ; Action button unlocks a ton of functionality ; Really strong battery life ; Impressive athlete-tier fitness tracking

Not for small wrists ; Expensive ; You could probably get away with the Series 8

For professional athletes, the Apple Watch Ultra is the most fitting option, but what about regular people like me? It’s still an optimal choice for the average Joe with a big, beautiful display, that customizable action button and a ridiculous battery...

Apple Watch Ultra vs Apple Watch Series 8


The Apple Watch Ultra and Apple Watch Series 8 are more alike than they are different... and at the same time, they aren't! Here's our review.

I put the Apple Watch Ultra through a Tough Mudder: Here's how it held up


Review: Apple says the Watch Ultra is its most rugged and capable smartwatch to date, so I put it through the most ruthless endurance test. 15,000 meters, 10,000 volts, and 30 obstacles later, here's how it's held up.

Large bright 49mm display ; Durably built ; Extra buttons and dual speakers ; Excellent battery life ; Integrated cell service for tracking

Expensive at $799 ; Too large for smaller wrists ; No offline mapping ; Limited metrics for athletes

I was pretty nervous about taking my $800 Apple Watch Ultra out on this grueling Tough Mudder event, given all of the crawling, climbing, and other physical obstacles I had to tackle. To my surprise, it held up really well and I still cannot believe...

Apple Watch Ultra review: Why non-athletes can love it, too


It's hard to ignore all the positives of the Apple Watch Ultra

Gorgeous, bright screen ; Better water-resistance and durability for outdoorsy folk ; The biggest Apple Watch you can buy (so far) ; Incredibly useful workout button

Not enough software uniqueness compared to the Apple Watch 8 ; Might get annoying to sleep in ; Can't opt out of cellular functionality (to save cash) ; No other color configurations (for now)

The Apple Watch Ultra's biggest selling point for average- to semi-athletic Apple fans is that it's got the biggest, brightest screen you'll find on an Apple Watch right now, with all the excellent features of the (half-priced) Apple Watch 8 and a...
