Apple Watch Ultra: S8 SiP core with 64-bit dual-core processor; W3 wireless chip 9; U1 chip
Apple Watch Ultra2: S9 SiP chip with 64-bit dual-core processor; W3 wireless chip; Second generation ultra wideband technology chip. With a new chip, the watch can find an iPhone, while the Watch can display song controls when near the HomePod. The processor performance is 30% higher than the previous generation of Apple Watch Ultra, and the user experience is smoother.

This kind of interaction is very practical when hands are occupied, for example, when the sweat of the hand affects the operation during exercise, you can answer the phone directly with gestures; When you can pause while cooking, you don't have to worry about your hands touching the screen. When you are woken up by the alarm clock, you can directly close your eyes and turn off the alarm clock with one hand to continue to enjoy sleep.
The AI algorithm for this function is still relatively powerful, and the data is modeled by detecting tiny movements and blood flow.
