Made from durable materials, inside and out

This thing is built to be tough. Really tough.

The watch itself is made from grade 4 titanium so it can withstand your toughest adventures. It has also been rigorously tested.

The Galaxy Watch Ultra is dust and water resistant up to 10 atmospheres (10ATM/IP68). But Samsung said that’s not enough, which is why it’s been tested and certified to military-grade ruggedness specifications, known as MIL-STD-810H.

MIL-STD-810H is a set of tests that simulate extreme temperatures, humidity, vibration, shock, and other factors that can affect different equipment. With this standard on the Galaxy Watch Ultra, you’re ready to take on harsh environments like deserts, jungles, salt spray, as well as low-pressure environments down to -500 meters and high-pressure environments up to 9,000 meters. For reference: the summit of Mount Everest is 8,848 meters!

The device itself is large, measuring 49mm between the lugs. This allows you to get all the data you need during your trip at a glance, including where you’ve been, where you’re going, and how your body is doing.

It may be big, but Samsung has worked hard to make sure it fits snugly on your wrist (even if it’s smaller than average). The “cushioned design” means it has a lower vertical profile, so you can use it to track your sleep comfortably, whether in a tent at basecamp or tucked up in your bed at home1More information on this soon.

The Galaxy Watch Ultra’s display is incredibly bright, with up to 3,000 nits of brightness. 3,000 nits is the kind of brightness you’d expect from high-performance TVs and laptops. Basically, that means it’s super easy to see in brightly lit environments, like on a sunny day on a snowy mountaintop. At night, this display won’t blind you either: a “dark mode” that displays your information in an eye-safe orange color automatically activates.

The screen can also withstand the toughest tests. It is protected by a reinforced Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 to withstand the toughest tests.

New tracking technology to help you stay at your best

You won’t be going on extreme adventures every day, but you’ll still need to train for the next one. Samsung has equipped the new Galaxy Watch Ultra with advancements in fitness, sleep, and wellness tracking to help you stay at your best.2.

Galaxy Fitness now features what Samsung calls “Multi-Sport Tile” to let you seamlessly switch between workout modes without having to change your settings in the middle of a triathlon or a hectic gym circuit. Simply press the dedicated action button on the crown of the Galaxy Watch Ultra to switch to the next activity mode.

Rest is the cornerstone of fitness, and Samsung has beefed up its sleep tracking so you know exactly what you’re doing when you fall asleep. The Galaxy Watch Ultra tracks how many breaths you take per hour, how often you move, and your heart rate variability to see how you’re recovering from stress (among other things). You can even see how your skin temperature changes at different times during your sleep so you can monitor your circadian rhythms, cycle tracking, and overall sleep quality.3.

All of these fitness, sleep and wellbeing elements are rolled into one “score” called the Vitality Score throughout the day so you can see your overall health metrics ranked out of a total score of 100. You even get insights into what needs to be improved so you can function at your best.
