The Apple Watch Series 9 can track activity, steps, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen (lung function), wrist temperature, sleep and environmental noise levels (to protect your hearing). And it uses algorithms and machine learning — aka, AI — to spot dangerous patterns and alert you to treatment.
The Apple Watch Series 9 has two major upgrades over the previous Series 8 model. The first is a 2000-nit display that offers twice the brightness of last year’s S8 and matches the brightness of last year’s original Apple Watch Ultra.
The second is the new S9 SiP processor, which has a 30% faster GPU and processes machine learning twice as fast. It makes everything faster, makes animations smoother, and enables features like new double-tap gestures and faster and more accurate Siri commands.
If you want the latest health sensors and safety features, great battery life (especially if you want sleep tracking), and don’t need the extreme features of the Ultra 2, you can save a lot of money with the aluminum model of the Apple Watch Series 9. And now is a great time to snag this deal.
