“After a week of testing, I don’t think I’m going to clash with Garmin, Polar or Coros watches for the Ironman, hiking or deep sea diving crowds, at least not yet. But it’s legitimately good for weekend warriors and intermediate athletes.”

Song also said that during the week he tested the Apple Watch Ultra, it “regularly” exceeded the device’s advertised 36 hours of battery life in normal mode:

“Last weekend, I charged the Ultra to 100%. I then walked for two hours and 15 minutes, used compass and GPS extensively, and tracked my sleep that night. I woke up the next morning with 50% battery.”

“Another day, I went for a 30-minute GPS run and did another 20-minute rowing workout. I also took a short call on the watch and ended the day with 84% battery.”

“Nilay, our editor in chief, managed to get 56 hours on a single charge and still had 14% left. He mostly stayed home, so he didn’t use mobile data or GPS. Still, that should give you an idea of ​​what you’d get if you need a few days off or aren’t interested in the Ultra’s fitness features.”

– Nicole Nguyen, of The Wall Street Journal, said that the Apple Watch Ultra is “exciting” but that there is not much comparison with Garmin-brand smartwatches:

“So should I buy an Ultra? It’s an exciting upgrade for current Apple Watch users who need more, especially battery life. But it’s not a Garmin killer.”
