Apple Watch series 9 may get new processor chip, better heart rate sensor & more
Apple is set to unveil the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 at their event in September, with exciting features like an upgraded heart rate sensor and new U2 chip. An all black Apple Watch variant is also set to be released at the event.
Apple is gearing up for its highly-anticipated annual event, famously dubbed the Wanderlust event, scheduled for September 12. The iPhone 15 and new Apple Watch models will be shown at this huge event, among other exciting announcements. Despite Apple's customary secrecy over the contents of these impending releases, a new report has provided some insight into what we might possibly anticipate from the Apple Watch Series 9, particularly in terms of its capabilities and sensors.
The Series 9, which comes in the recognisable 41 mm and 45 mm sizes, and the Ultra 2, which keeps its current 49 mm size, are the two new Apple Watch models that the company plans to release this year. While it is anticipated that these next versions will keep the looks of its forerunners, a significant Apple Watch overhaul is apparently planned for 2024.
A standout feature in these upcoming models is the introduction of a new, speedier processor chip. Since the Series 6, Apple has used the same chipset in all of its Apple Watch models. With this improvement, activities are expected to run more smoothly and effectively overall.
The improvements don't stop with the new processor, though. All of the new models may have received internal component and sensor enhancements, according to sources. Notably, an updated heart rate sensor with more precision and accuracy than its predecessor is anticipated. This development may greatly improve the watch's ability to track users' health and fitness levels and provide more accurate data.
The U2 chip, which will be included in both the Series 9 and Ultra 2, is another noteworthy innovation. The "Find My" capability is expected to be improved by this upgraded ultra-wideband chip, perhaps improving position tracking precision. Even the rumoured inclusion of this processor in the iPhone 15 raises the possibility of further technological integration inside the Apple ecosystem.
It's interesting to note that the iPhone 15 Pro is said to have a new titanium frame, which might indicate coordinated colour possibilities for both high-end phones. Series 9 and Ultra 2 are eagerly awaited additions to Apple's wearable family because they promise enhanced performance, better sensors, and more networking choices.
