September 2023 saw the introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra 2, just a year after the original Apple Watch Ultra made its debut. That means that if you’re in the market for a high-end smartwatch, you’re faced with a tough choice. And with Black Friday coming on 24 November, you may have to act on that choice sooner rather than later. 

Both of these devices are great for creatives, as they integrate perfectly within the Apple ecosystem, and send you notifications and alerts so you never miss important work emails and messages. They’re also packed with health features and boast extensive battery life, making them perfect for anything outside your creative work. Yet the fact that they’re both so good makes it hard to decide between them.
