In the dynamic realm of technology, 2023 proved to be a year of nuanced changes for the Apple Watch.

 Apple Watch Hardware Updates:

The Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 made their appearances, but they were more about refinement than revolution. While not groundbreaking, the introduction of the new S9 chip brought a 30% speed boost, though its impact in day-to-day use might not be immediately noticeable. The Ultra 2 boasted a dazzling 3,000-nit screen brightness, and both models saw an upgrade in storage to a generous 64GB, catering especially to avid runners.

Notably, the decision to update the Ultra within a year surprised many, especially given the ongoing ban saga in the United States. If you’re considering a purchase, now might be the opportune moment.


Apple Watch Software Revolution:

The real star of the show in 2023 was watchOS 10, marking a significant overhaul of the Apple Watch’s operating system. Although it required users to adjust their muscle memory, the revamped home screen and widget system emerged as a triumph. The Smart Stack, now smarter than ever, seamlessly integrates glances, making it more intuitive and accessible with a quick swipe.

The software updates did not stop there. Siri’s on- device responses, powered by the new S9 chip, enhance the overall stoner experience, especially in situations with poor signal or no phone hard. Siri’s newfound capability to pierce health data is a long- awaited point, making it easier for druggies to recoup and partake their health criteria without navigating through multiple apps.
