Together with the iPhone 15 lineup and the Watch Series 9, the top-of-the-line Apple Watch Ultra 2 has also made its debut with improved performance and features. So, let’s get right into the official specs, features, availability, and official price of the new Apple Watch Ultra 2 in Nepal.
Apple Watch Ultra 2 Overview:
Design and Durability
Apple Watch Ultra 2 is a big smartwatch with a titanium casing that weighs 61.4 grams. Its display is protected by sapphire crystal, while the back is a mixture of sapphire crystal and ceramic material.
On one side, you’ll find a GPS antenna for precise location tracking, dual speakers that enhance call and Siri audio, a siren emitting up to 86dB sound to attract help, and an Action button. This thing lets you customize functions like marking waypoints, starting workouts, and even activating the siren with a press and hold.
On the opposite side, there’s the side button, a depth gauge to measure underwater depth and temperature a three-microphone array to optimize voice clarity, and a digital crown for navigation.
In terms of endurance, the Apple Watch Ultra 2 offers an IP6X dust resistance. Moreover, it excels in water-related environments with 100m water resistance (WR100), and even for diving enthusiasts, it is rated up to 40 meters for swimming and diving according to EN13319 standards.
There are also band choices for the Apple Watch Ultra 2, including the Alpine Loop (available in Blue, Indigo, and Olive), Trail Loop (offered in Orange/Beige, Green/Gray, Blue/Black), and Ocean Band (in Blue and Orange). Supposedly, when paired with a new Trail Loop or Alpine Loop band, the watch becomes carbon neutral.
As for the display, there is a flat 49mm (1.92-inch) always-on Retina OLED screen protected by sapphire crystal, offering ~338 ppi density. Apple has also upgraded to 3,000 nits of peak brightness this time, so I wouldn’t be worried about outdoor visibility at all on the Watch Ultra 2. Except for the brightness, all other display specs are pretty much the same as the first-gen Apple Watch Ultra.

Performance and Memory
Like the Watch Series 9, this guy features an upgraded S9 chip too, whose GPU is 30% faster than the Apple S8. It also has a new four-core neural processing unit (NPU) for on-device Siri data processing, eliminating the need for constant WiFi or cellular network connectivity. Apple also claims the new chip allows for 25% better dictation for Siri than the previous model.
The S9 SiP includes an upgraded second-generation ultra-wideband chip, similar to the U1 chip, enabling precise location detection of nearby devices also equipped with this technology. This new dual-core CPU has 5.6 billion transistors — 60% more than the S8 chip.
Watch Ultra 2 is also one of the first Apple smartwatches to offer 64GB of storage. Likewise, WatchOS 10 is the biggest highlight of this guy. But of course, WatchOS 10 will be available for older Apple smartwatches too, including Watch Series 9 and newer.
With all these changes, if you’re expecting enhanced battery life, you will likely be let down. Apple is still promising the same old 36 hours of endurance under regular usage. However, the “Low Power Mode” sees an increase of 12 hours, going from 60 to 72 hours. It does feature fast charging for the watch, but the complete information about it is yet to be disclosed.
Intuitive Double Tap gesture
With the introduction in Ultra 2 and the simultaneous release in Watch Series 9, there’s a new gesture: the double tap. By simply tapping your thumb and index finger together, you can perform various actions like answering or ending a call, setting a timer, controlling media playback, silencing alarms, and even snapping photos or recording videos.
The gesture relies on data from the gyroscope, accelerometer, and heart rate sensor, all finely tuned by machine learning to prevent accidental activation. It sounds pretty intuitive to me!
Rest of the features
Other than this, the Apple Watch Ultra 2 can track everything from your heart rate, blood oxygen (SpO2), stress, ECG levels, skin temperatures, and more. The updated Workout app on WatchOS 10 lets you train for different kinds of workouts. There’s even a workout feature that can intelligently switch between swimming, biking, and running on its own.
