Apple Watch Ultra hands-on: Big screen, big battery, big price

The Apple Watch Ultra isn’t like any Apple Watch you’ve seen before. But it is perhaps like some of the best sports watches you might have heard of, with a design and feature collection curated for rugged activities. Think: hiking, trail running, mountain climbing and diving.

As Apple’s largest and longest-lasting smartwatch yet, the $799 (AU$1,299) Apple Watch Ultra promises the ultimate companionship for any kind of adventure. In addition to an especially durable design, the Apple Watch Ultra offers an additional action button, a more substantial digital crown, a safety siren and a special selection of watch bands. Some of the experience is supported by a redesigned compass app, which is also available for Apple Watch 8.
