Galaxy Watch Ultra: Extreme Temps, 10ATM Pressure, Ocean Swimming

Samsung has unveiled a range of new products at the Galaxy Unpacked event, featuring the sixth generation of Galaxy foldables, the Galaxy Buds 3 series, and the Galaxy Watch 7 series.

The Galaxy Watch 7 series includes two models – the Galaxy Watch 7 and the much-anticipated Galaxy Watch Ultra. This article focuses on the Ultra model, but you can find details about the standard Galaxy Watch 7 here.

Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra’s Distinctive Design

The Galaxy Watch Ultra smartwatch showcases a new design with a titanium body (Titanium Grade 4), capable of withstanding extreme temperatures from -20°C to 55°C and 10ATM water pressure. It meets MIL-STD 810H standards and features an optional water sports strap that easily drains. Additionally, a long press of the shortcut button for 5 seconds activates an 86-decibel siren that can be heard up to 180 meters away.

Specifications and Features

The watch features a 47mm dial and a 1.5-inch (37.3mm) 480×480 Super AMOLED always-on display. It is offered in three colors: titanium rock gray, titanium platinum silver, and titanium porcelain white.

Powered by the same 3nm Exynos W1000 penta-core chipset as the Galaxy Watch 7, Samsung claims this new chipset is far more capable and energy-efficient than the dual-core Exynos W930 chip in the Galaxy Watch 6. This chipset is paired with 2GB of memory and 32GB of storage. The watch is equipped with a 590mAh battery to run the system.

Without power saving mode, the Galaxy Watch Ultra boasts a battery life of up to 80 hours. At night, its display automatically shifts to a gentle night mode.

Similar to the regular Galaxy Watch 7, the Ultra model includes the Samsung BioActive Sensor (Optical Bio-signal sensor, Electrical Heart Signal, Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis), Temperature Sensor, Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, and Light Sensor. These sensors facilitate various health-tracking features. For instance, the new Multi-sports tile allows for tracking multi-course workouts for a triathlon, including swimming, cycling, and running. The new Functional Threshold Power (FTP) for cycling measures maximum cycling power in just four minutes using AI-powered FTP metrics.

Pricing and Availability

The Galaxy Watch Ultra is currently available for pre-order in select regions via the company’s official website. The Ultra model, featuring WiFi + 4G LTE connectivity, is priced at $649 (₹ 59,999). The company indicates that the watch will be widely available for purchase starting from July 25, 2024.
