The Apple Watch Ultra 2 faced a recent ban from sale due to a patent dispute; however, it has now reappeared in the market, pending an appeal by Apple. As it is available for purchase again, Amazon is offering a substantial discount. The current price is $709, including the Olive Alpine Loop strap, instead of the regular $799. This discounted rate is made possible by a $40 coupon and a six percent discount, bringing it close to its all-time low price.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2, introduced in the recent fall, comes equipped with the latest S9 SiP (system in package) chip, introducing convenient gestures like double tapping your thumb and forefinger to perform various activities such as ending calls and playing music. With automatic Night Mode activation, on-device Siri processing, and an always-on display, the Ultra 2 maintains the familiar form factor of the OG Ultra smartwatch while boosting the brightness of the display to an impressive 3,000 nits, up from last year’s 2,000 nits.
Exceptional battery life is a standout feature, offering up to 36 hours per charge, ideal for outdoor adventures. Additionally, a low-power mode extends this duration to an impressive 72 hours. Divers benefit from an improved depth tracker, enabling the saving of past dives and tracking depth history directly from the watch.
The Ultra 2 introduces new widgets, an enhanced compass app, additional workout-tracking features, and more. Apple emphasizes its commitment to environmental sustainability, highlighting that the Ultra 2 is manufactured using 95 percent recycled materials as part of a broader initiative to reduce the environmental impact of its product line. It’s important to note that this particular deal is available only for the Ultra 2 small model, designed for wrists measuring 130mm to 160mm and includes the Olive Alpine Loop.
