The Apple Watch Ultra 2: The Next Evolution of Wearable Technology?
Apple's next top-end smartwatch is rumored to be the best of its kind. With rumors of a bigger screen with advanced technology, the Ultra 2 is bound to be a hit. Is this the wearable technology of the future?
What Can We Expect From the Apple Watch Ultra 2?
We've heard rumors that they could offer an even bigger screen than the current. This could be made with advanced technology such as a micro-LED display, which could make the display seem almost painted onto the glass with vibrant colors and excellent viewing angles.
The display size could increase from 1.92 inches to 2.1 inches, making it a truly massive smartwatch. Of course, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, as the current Ultra's display size has been praised for making it easy to interact with and see.
When Will We See This Watch?
The original watch, released in September 2022, led many to speculate that the Ultra 2 would follow the usual Apple Watch trend and come out in September 2023. However, they may not launch until 2024 or 2025, as the Apple Watch SE line isn't yearly, with the Apple Watch SE 2 launching two years after the original.
Additionally, the leaks and rumors that have surfaced so far have only been about a future Apple Watch Ultra without mentioning them specifically. This could mean that Apple is taking its time to develop the Ultra 2 with noteworthy upgrades to justify its existence.
How Much Will They Cost?
At the moment, we don't have any news on the exact price of the Apple Watch Ultra 2. However, the original currently costs $799 / £849 / AU$1,229, so it's likely that the next model will cost at least that much.
If we don't see the Ultra 2 for a few years, then the price could be even higher due to the new display technology. However, with the current model, there's only one configuration, so if that's true of the Apple Watch Ultra 2, too, then you won't have to pay ever higher prices to get more storage or the like.
Will the Apple Watch Ultra 2 Be the Wearable of the Future?
Only time will tell if they will be the wearable of the future. With rumors of a bigger and better display, it's likely to be a hit. We'll wait and see if Apple makes it available in September 2023 or if we'll have to wait until 2024 or 2025 for the Ultra 2 to be released.
