Apple Watch Ultra review: Is it a true sports watch?

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Connectthewatts.com: “Apple Watch Ultra review: Is it a true sports watch?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Apple Watch Ultra is one of the most exciting new smart watches to be released this year. While it is an extremely nice smart watch, it still is missing a lot of the utility included in most higher end sports watches.

The new OS9 update added significantly more fitness and sport features: the ability to build your own custom workouts, new metrics like heart rate zones and power output, customizable workout display screens, and of course, the very cool-looking updated compass app for improved navigation.  

On top of all that, the new Apple Watch Ultra is the only device to take all these new fitness features and provide the hardware needed for fitness enthusiasts and athletes to use them.

And while all that is great, and makes it by far my favorite Apple Watch, it is still, at its core, a smart watch. Meaning, it’s not truly designed as a sports watch and is missing many critical components that, even for recreational athletes, make it a far inferior alternative to more dedicated sports GPS watches, like Garmin. 

Honestly, I am a big fan of Apple products. I have an iPhone, do all my work on an iMac, use an iPad, and wear AirPods. I am heavily in their ecosystem. But, I have never been a huge fan of the Apple Watch because it has never been designed well for sports use.
