Journalists from IT publications published the first reviews of the Apple Watch Ultra
Journalists from IT publications spoke about the advantages and disadvantages of the Apple Watch Ultra. This, in particular, reports The Verge.
Watch reviews appeared simultaneously in several specialized media. So, the authors of The Verge noted the large size of the device, a very bright screen, a convenient customizable button, autonomy. The published review states that the watch is likely to be suitable for users who exercise regularly but are not professional athletes. Among the shortcomings, the authors noticed that the Apple Watch Ultra is very large, and the watch does not support offline maps.
From the first reviews it follows that the watch will be able to work on a single charge for at least two days, while the autonomy of a regular Apple Watch does not exceed one and a half days. At the same time, the new device cannot compete with models from other manufacturers, since its autonomy is not designed for long-term use. The most expensive watch in Apple’s lineup – available for $799 – comes with a cellular module and a Wi-Fi receiver. The authors of CNET noted that the Ultra model is inferior in many respects to competitive sports watches from Garmin or Polar, but the device is definitely easier to use.
A CNBC journalist praised the device for its loud speaker: “I often use the watch to answer phone calls, especially when I’m cooking.” In SOS mode, the wearable gadget emits loud sounds that can be heard in open space at a distance of several hundred meters.
TechRadar’s review notes a physical button that can be set to any quick action. The journalists wished that this option was present in all smart watches on the market.
In mid-September, the authors of IT publications published the first reviews on the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. The journalists noted the great similarity between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13, and also praised the increased performance of the 14 Pro models.
