  • Heya 🌈🌈🌈 Y’All……

  • dempoy on September 8, 2022

    Finally an Apple Watch that could last the whole flight from LAX to Japan.

  • pickled grammar on September 8, 2022

    fun fact: current watches cost around $140 to make.

  • dhk19 on September 9, 2022

    just bought the 7 after watching the keynote i do not need the temp sensor everything else is software features that the 7 will have

  • bonvaicu on September 9, 2022

    hopefully orange color becomes available for the ocean band

  • Dennis Berceles on September 9, 2022

    Why Apple or the American technology can't beat the Chinese' HUAWEI or OPPO in terms of longer battery life in a smartwatch?
    If apple can improve the battery of Watch ULTRA, why not do the same to Watch 8 and SE?

  • Stefano Parolin on September 9, 2022

    The clever people should buy AW 8 or AW7…

  • Neil Fowler on September 9, 2022

    I was hoping to swap my Garmin Fenix for an Apple Watch that had the same advantages (e.g. multi GPS, plenty of tri functions) and I could discreetly wear to work. Unfortunately, the Ultra is too clunky for me. In addition, the single colour makes it stand out too much, the cellular connectivity is unnecessary and the UK pricing isn’t competitive enough. I guess I’ll stick with my Garmin for sports and my regular watch for day-to-day, for now at least.

  • Warren Thrush on September 9, 2022

    Great video. A great snapshot of what these new watches can do. By the way, I also agree with how you pronounce "aluminium".

  • Dries Analog on September 9, 2022

    Imo the biggest mistake Apple made here, was not making a round watch.

  • Cathal MC NALLY on September 9, 2022

    Didn’t tell me anything new that I didn’t hear in the event I thought you had a look at the watches

  • Mark Builder on September 9, 2022

    Looking at upgrading my iwatch series 1.Should i go for the series 8 or ultra.Will I notice any difference.

  • LACC on September 9, 2022

    Can you take a call on a Mountain? Most of the time I’ve been on hikes there’s no signal.

  • Abhishek Bhattacharya on September 9, 2022

    I was looking for a apple watch ultra Nike😊

  • Bruno Moreira on September 9, 2022

    Awesome conversion. 799$ = 1009€ 👌

  • Rich on September 9, 2022

    Can the previous bands be used on the Ultra Series 8?

  • tflynn124 on September 9, 2022

    I like the Ultra for the improved battery life, I’ll probably buy one in a few months because I will have to save up for it! Pricey at $1299 Australian

  • shanmac77 on September 9, 2022

    Thanks. I ordered the SE2 LTE version. Price was a no brainer up in Canada. Thought about the Ultra but wanted to order the Airpod Pro 2's as well and couldn't do both.

  • ali naif on September 9, 2022

    Is it me or you look like a time traveler. You look like from 70’s era

  • Bill Gussy on September 9, 2022

    Price matters

  • Hammer Hagelin on September 9, 2022

    Does it play music ? Can you make a phone call with it ? How far from away your phone can you be to do this? How much memory does it have ?

  • Jeradiah Williams on September 9, 2022

    I have the 13 Pro Max and I've been wondering which version of the Apple Watch I should get.
    Whats the difference between them

  • Joel Santander on September 9, 2022

    Thank you for this!!

  • Andy Nicolaou on September 9, 2022

    ive never had an apple watch but ive ordered the series 8

  • TalsVids on September 9, 2022

    Has anyone noticed the black bezel area around the screen on the Ultra looks larger than the smaller bezels of the S8. I would have expected the Ultra to have much smaller bezels due to its flat screen.

  • contact👉 ifixstore01 @ Instagram on September 9, 2022

    👆👆He unlock iwatch

  • Mehdi Rezaeianzadeh on September 9, 2022

    Fitbit Sense 2 vs Apple Watch 8 comparison please, thanks!

  • Krishna Singh on September 9, 2022

    Which one

  • Morgen Holz on September 10, 2022

    The Ultra is even more ugly and clunky than the other versions. The features are good, but in a hideous case.

  • mags mags on September 10, 2022

    I don't scuba dive, climb mountains or do ultra marathons. Still considering the Ultra though… Battery life is much better and I don't want to worry about scratching it, and if you want the watch 8 with cellular the price isn't much different.

  • Thomas Phiri on September 10, 2022

  • Mohammed Al Rawahi on September 10, 2022

    “You don’t have to pay extra” is the wrong wording. The correct one is “you have to pay extra”.

  • Jimmy Brannan on September 10, 2022

    I imagine the new battery saver mode is just going to turn off the screen always on mode to make the power use go back to what it was before.

  • Iggy Cygnus on September 10, 2022

    The Apple Watch Hemes is the most expensive Watch option available from Apple. Not the Apple Watch Ultra.

  • Steven Tang on September 10, 2022

    I wonder why you guys don’t have comparison between Apple Watch and garmin watch, I have instinct solar 2 and it’s battery can last over one month with one charge

  • Jay White on September 10, 2022

    For my birthday 🥳 in January I’m getting the new Apple Watch Ultra ⌚️

  • Jay White on September 10, 2022
