New Apple Watch Ultra will be lighter, claims leaker

Apple Watch Ultra

A leaker with a short but good record for information on Apple releases, claims that the expected second generation Apple Watch Ultra will be lighter than the first.

The first-generation Apple Watch Ultra weighs 61.3g (0.14lbs), but the leaker gives no indication of how much lighter the next model is supposed to be. "The new Apple Watch Ultra has reduced weight," is the entirety of the leak in translation from its original posting on Chinese social media site Weibo.

This lack of detail would make the report questionable, but for how it mirrors what the same leaker did in 2022. He or she leaked the release of Apple's yellow iPhone 14 refresh with a similarly minimalist report.

At present, the Apple Watch Ultra is almost twice the weight of the aluminum Apple Watch Series 8. The Series 8 model is 32g (0.07lbs) in aluminum, 42g (0.09lbs) in stainless steel, and 37g (0.08lbs) in titanium.

Previous rumors have claimed that a revised Apple Watch Ultra would be released alongside the expected Apple Watch Series 9 in September. Separately, Apple is said to have been working on an Apple Watch Ultra with a microLED display, but that this has been delayed to 2026.
