The Apple Watch is now completely reimagined with extraordinary new capabilities. Each and every aspect has been engineered to create the most rugged and capable Apple Watch ever.

The aerospace-grade titanium case strikes the perfect balance of weight, durability, and corrosion resistance. The titanium case extends up to surround the flat sapphire front crystal, protecting it from edge impact that occurs during extreme activities.

For the first time, there is a 49mm case on the front, which is Apple’s biggest and brightest display making it easier to read on strong sunny days. There is also a new Action button in the high-contrast “international orange” for quick controls for multiple functions.

The Digital Crown on the Apple Watch Ultra has a larger diameter and coarser grooves while the side button provides a typical tactile feel in the overall use case. Apple has also added a second speaker to increase volume to excel the audio system.

All three strategically placed microphones and advanced software improve call quality in windy conditions.

The second exclusive is an Ocean band that is molded in a high-performance elastomer with a tubular geometry, allowing it to perfectly stretch for a comfortable fit even over a wetsuit. The titanium buckle and adjustable loops secure the band during high-speed water sports.

Lastly, the Trail loop is specialized for the Apple Watch Ultra and designed for endurance athletes, the lightweight textile has increased elasticity for a perfect, snug fit. It’s Apple’s thinnest band with a convenient tab for making quick adjustments
