Jacob Krol for Sports Illustrated:

The Apple Watch Ultra ($800) is a product built for adventure and aimed at serious athletes. It features more advanced GPS, a larger and sturdier build, longer battery life, an action button, and the latest sensor stack.

But after using it for 25 days, it’s clear that the Apple Watch Ultra isn’t just ready for those epic adventures, it’s great for everyday adventures too…

Five extra millimeters compared to the larger 8 series [display] the size may look small on paper, but it makes a big difference. Especially if you use the compass function while hiking or opt for Maps to navigate through New York. I didn’t even feel the need to pull out my iPhone when I was trying to find the fastest route to catch a train. I could easily look at my wrist to see instructions and feel the haptic vibrations when it was time to turn or when I was approaching an intersection.

I also found myself relying more on the Apple Watch with the larger screen of the Ultra and since all models of this watch have cellular capability, I can feel safer leaving the iPhone completely at the House. I have a device with a screen large enough for important alerts and even to respond with return messages…

For me, the Apple Watch Ultra lets me take it a step further and pair it with a computer on my wrist. It’s an Apple Watch that’s ready for the everyday and the epic far afield, and that’s something to consider. I won’t be going back.

Taken from MacDailyNews: Apple Watch Ultra is truly remarkable. We will never go back to a “normal” Apple Watch either!
