Deliveries of the Apple Watch Ultra are scheduled to begin on Friday, September 23.
Ahead of the smartwatch launch, the Cupertino-based tech giant unveiled two apps that will be exclusive to the upcoming wearable: Siren and Depth.
Two Apple Watch Ultra Exclusive apps on the App Store
The Cupertino giant has unveiled two new apps that will only be accessible for the upcoming Apple Watch.
According to a recent story from Macrumors, Siren and Depth will be the latest preinstalled apps to house the Apple Watch Ultra model.
The first app, Siren, will be useful for people who get lost on a trip. This emergency software can perform location sharing tasks on your Apple Watch.
It is interesting to note that if you try to long-press the action button on the device, you will hear a beep that immediately notifies you of someone’s whereabouts.
The Siren app creates a sound pattern that can extend up to 600 feet away from the surroundings, thanks to Apple Watch Ultra’s redesigned speakers. This feature can speed up search and rescue operations in urgent situations.
Meanwhile, according to Apple Insider, the Depth app will be the newest companion for divers exploring underwater. This app is perfect for people interested in snorkeling, free diving and other water activities.
This particular app can detect the water depth as well as the temperature. It will also tell you if you’ve already reached the maximum depth underwater, which is 130 feet.
As soon as you step into the water, you can automatically access the app on your Apple Watch Ultra. You still have the option to enable it manually.
It should be noted that these two apps come preinstalled on your wearable. If you eventually delete them but want to reuse them, you can download them again from the App Store.

Is the Apple Watch Ultra worth it?
The upcoming Apple Smartwatch is said to be more durable than its predecessors. The Tech Times previously reported that it would boast aerospace-grade titanium, which makes it more resistant to corrosion.
Besides Siren and Depth, you can also explore other apps on this model including Backtrack, Workouts and Compass Waypoints.
With an expanded set of microphones, you can enjoy high-quality sound during video calls and recordings.
The Apple Watch Ultra is an essential smartwatch for GPS users, accurately showing your distance and other data when traversing routes and roads.
Pre-orders for this product will start on September 23rd. The starting price is $799.
