Apple Watch Ultra allows divers to take it deep sea.

This past September, Apple launched the Apple Watch Ultra, a waterproof watch built for endurance, exploration, and adventure.

Reaching new depths with the launch of the Oceanic+ app, the watch becomes an easy-to-use dive computer, allowing divers to take their watch deeper than ever before — up to 40 meters, or 130 feet, by using the new depth gauge and water temperature sensors.

Apple partnered with Huish Outdoors on the $10/month Oceanic+ app that features:

  • A main screen showing a diver’s current depth, no-decompression time, water temperature, and more.

  • Graphs showing maximum depth, temperature ascent rate, and no-decompression limit.

  • An action button allowing divers to set a compass heading during a dive.

  • An after-dive review showing data that includes water entry and exit locations.

With Oceanic+ on Apple Watch Ultra, haptic feedback is one of the most intuitive features. The watch taps users on the wrist using a series of vibrations, allowing divers to feel notifications even under 7mm thick wetsuits.

Along with the Ultra and Oceanic+ app, Apple also made an elastomer watch band specifically for water sports called the Ocean Band that is comfortable and secure enough to fit over wetsuits or gloves.
