Take a look at the forthcoming Apple Watch Series 9
Yesterday, tech giant Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 9, the newest generation of the Apple Watch. The new wearable gear is equipped with an 30% faster S9 chip for quick processing power, an 18-hour battery life, and a U2 ultra wideband chip for precise location accuracy.
One of the most eye-catching features of the new Apple Watch Series 9 that caught everyone’s attention at the Apple Wanderlust showcase was the unique “double tap” gesture feature. Using the wearer’s data points including movement and blood flow, this enables wearers to use snooze alarms, pause timers, play/pause music, and take/end calls with only a tap of their finger and thumb together.
Siri has also received an update as it is now implemented into the Series 9. There’s no longer the need for it to have to ping the cloud. The Health app has also been integrated with Siri.
In order to make the screen look twice as bright as the previous version, Apple also updated the Apple Watch’s interface and added additional nits. Brightness zones have been improved up to 3,000 nits as well as dimming zones for usage in locations such as movie theaters.
A brand new watchface named “Modular Ultra” has been introduced, and is aimed for athletes and other active wearers so that they can customize the sensor array. This would help for those who need to utilize GPS coordinates, water depth, or elevation.
Now available for order, the Apple Watch Series 9 will retail for $399 while its Ultra 2 variant will cost $799. Both launch on September 22.
