GPS that’s truly trailblazing.
GPS performance is critical for athletes who want the most precise metrics, whether they’re training in urban streets or out in the wild. Apple watch series 8 Ultra features a new precision dual-frequency GPS system that provides amazing accuracy in the most difficult locations.
The GPS dilemma.
For most people, a traditional GPS solution with just L1 GPS works well most of the time. But it can be tricky when tall buildings, trees, or dense foliage block satellites. The newer L5 GPS enables advanced signal processing, reducing many errors and providing a more consistent signal in environments like dense cities.
Precision dual‑frequency GPS
L1 and L5 GPS for incredible accuracy and precise metrics
Two frequencies. One precise solution.
Apple watch series 8 Ultra integrates both L1 and L5 GPS into a new antenna design for greater range with incredible power efficiency. It combines data from these two frequencies to provide amazingly accurate distance, pace, and route calculations.
The most accurate GPS in dense urban environments.
The dual-frequency system combines with Apple Maps to include road, bike, and trail routes that better identify actual locations. Accuracy is boosted by new satellite and signal models. And a custom, advanced algorithm makes optimal use of available satellite signals.
Trail Loop. Comfort for the long run.
Designed to be light, thin, and flexible. It features a fuss-free loop closure for quick adjustments during workouts. Extra stretch built into the webbing makes it easy to cinch for optimal fit.
And back again.
Designed to take on extreme environments, elevations, and temperatures, Apple watch series 8 Ultra is an essential exploration tool that can take you everywhere. And help get you home.
