The second-generation Apple Watch Ultra will be available with a black titanium case, according to a previously-accurate leaker known as ShrimpApplePro. The new Ultra will also remain available in its existing "Natural" titanium finish, the leaker said.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman recently said Apple tested a darker titanium finish for the current Ultra, but decided not to release it at the time. He said it was "theoretically" possible the finish could be released for the new model this year. Previously, the high-end Edition model of the Apple Watch Series 7 was available with a Space Black titanium case.

Another new feature expected for the Ultra is a faster S9 chip, which Gurman said is based on the A15 Bionic chip first used in iPhone 13 models.

The second-generation Apple Watch Ultra is expected to be announced in September alongside the Apple Watch Series 9, which is rumored to be available in pink.

Released in September 2022, the Apple Watch Ultra is a larger and more rugged version of the Apple Watch designed for hiking, extreme water sports, diving, and other outdoor activities. It is priced at $799 in the United States.

Yeah, when the Ultra was released last year I was scoffing at the fact that it was not available in a darker finish as an option.

I would probably upgrade just for the darker version but it concerns me that Apple tested it and wasn't happy with the way it looked.

Lovely! Just exactly what I needed. Instant buy!!!

I don't care if I already have Apple Watch Ultra. I'm upgrading to this one!
As you know @TheYayAreaLiving 🎗️ I just got mine this spring, I seldom upgrade AW for couple years and love current color with my third party matching titanium band so I for me this is money to be saved for a couple years til new features like medical things of interest and significant battery life improvement over my current AW Ultra are out. Just cannot justify upgrading so fast.

But each to his/her own path to enjoy life. I spend money along different lines but we both are techies LOL And we can enjoy however we choose to follow the path as Apple Techies @TheYayAreaLiving 🎗️

I have my Stainless Steel band from the Series 0. Would use it on my Ultra but that means I have have to delve into a couple dozen boxes of "stuff". oy. I collect too much stuff!
Actually I have the stainless steel mesh in box my new titanium band came in in the drawer near my macbook so I can go back and it looked ok but loved my new titanium well. It does look good with the Ultra though if you find it.

This will sell huge, if it pans out. An actual smaller process updated watch SOC means it will be upgrade year for me (been grinding my old one for many years) this color pattern would be tempting.
