Apple Watch Ultra 2 was unveiled earlier this month alongside the iPhone 15 series of smartphones. The company’s latest premium smartwatch comes with a few hardware upgrades over last year’s Apple Watch Ultra, which was the first smartwatch from the company with a 49mm display and a titanium body. These include a new processor that is also present on the Apple Watch Series 9 model. Wearers will also be able to control the smartwatch with a double tap gesture, a new feature introduced on this year’s models.

The company’s new Apple Watch Ultra 2 went on sale in global markets and in India on September 22, while the first-generation Apple Watch Ultra is no longer listed on Apple’s website a year after it was launched. Here’s a quick comparison between the Apple Watch Ultra 2 price in India and specifications with the Apple Watch Ultra.
