Apple Watch Series 9 Review

 

The Apple Watch Series 9 is a fantastic smartwatch for iPhone users. It's full of sensors, excellent software and high-end hardware

Certain models made from recycled aluminium ; Faster Siri ; Accurate tracking ; Very bright screen

Design remains the same ; Health data needs to be shown better

The Apple Watch Series 9 is a fantastic smartwatch for iPhone users. It’s full of sensors, excellent software and high-end hardware. A redesign, or a least a freshening up of this near decade-old design wouldn’t go amiss in the future though.

Apple Watch Series 9 review: Under the surface

 

Don't let the look of the Series 9 fool you – it's a big update over the Series 8 and is worth the upgrade

Faster processor ; Brighter screen ; Gesture control ; Carbon Neutral certification (with specific bands)

Battery life hasn't improved

The Apple Watch Series 9 might look the same as the Series 8 or even the Series 7, but it has a brighter display, a faster processor, exclusive features, and a somewhat more sustainable construction – what else can you ask for? It's a superb wearable...

Apple Watch Series 9 review: all in good time

 

Time for a change? Not with this update, which nets you a great device but one with few surprises over the Series 8

Brighter display ; More powerful SiP ; Your bands still fit ; Double-tap should be great…

… But it’s not there at launch ; Battery life no better ; No big reason to upgrade ; Still requires an iPhone

Another year of gentle tick-tock iteration. But for newcomers, the speedier S9 chip will give this watch longevity over the SE, and one-handed double-tap shows promise.

Apple Watch Series 9 review: Upgrade for this key feature (no, it's not Double Tap)

 

The Apple Watch Series 9 has iterative updates, but one key feature might make the upgrade worth it.

New chip is promising ; Double Tap looks fun ; Very bright display ; Carbon neutral

Apple's new Watch Series 9 and its new S9 chip are a foundation for things to come, but new features are few and far between at this point.

Apple Watch Series 9 review: why you should buy it right now

 

Should you rush out and buy the Apple Watch Series 9? Yes, but also no, depending on what's on your wrist already. Our in-depth review explains everything.

Supreme 24/7 comfort Choice of size, color, and bands Extensive health, fitness, and safety features Fast, smooth, and usable performance Total, easy integration with the iPhone

Less than two days battery life with moderate use Almost no reason to upgrade from previous version

“The Apple Watch Series 9's 24/7 comfort, extensive features, fast performance, and seamless integration with the iPhone make it a must-buy.”

Review: Apple Watch Series 9

 

Apple's latest wearable has a new chip, new interactions, and some serious OS updates to help you log your mental health.

More efficient processor = better battery life. New pink color! Brighter screen for your lovely custom watch face. Useful haptic features. Finds your iPhone way faster. Daylight tracking is nifty. Double Tap is handy.

Looks mostly the same. Just like the Watch Ultra 2, too much of the experience is dependent on your iPhone. Do you want to log your entire personality on a watch?
