The new Apple Watch Ultra—a bigger, shinier, and more rugged upgrade to its market-dominating smartwatch line. It’s designed to compete with higher end sports and utility watches from the likes of Garmin, Suunto, Polar, and Coros, and boasts a suite of high-end features and improvements – including a fully fledged dive computer.

MacDailyNews Take: Here’s a bonus video from the fine folks at TechRax who, among other things, take a hammer to Apple Watch Ultra only to see the table upon which it sits fail before Apple’s rugged smartwatch:
Bottom line: Don’t try to repair your Apple Watch (Ultra or otherwise) by yourself and don’t slam it with a hammer and you’ll be fine.
