The Apple Watch 9 keeps track of your health and fitness goals and your schedule, plus it can control your smart home.

Apple Watch 9 is a powerhouse of a smartwatch

The Series 9 is the latest smartwatch from Apple and remains one of the most popular worldwide. With a clean aesthetic, touchscreen, and familiar-looking interface, the Apple Watch is the smartwatch you want if you already own an iPhone.

New to Apple Watch 9 is Double Tap, a gesture that launches apps and notifications by tapping your thumb and forefinger together twice. The Retina display has been bumped up in the Series 9, now showing off up to 2,000 nits vs. the 1,000 nits of earlier models.

The S9 chip and 4-core Neural Engine make the Series 9 twice as fast as the Series 8, and you’ll also get 64GB of space standard, rather than the usual 32GB. That’s more room to download music, podcasts, and store photos.

The Apple Watch doesn’t work with Android, which is really its only downfall. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

If you’re an Apple fan, the new Series 9 smartwatch is a worthy upgrade to older models. It works with Apple HomeKit, iPads, the HomePod and HomePod Mini, and products across the Mac line, integrating seamlessly into your smart home.


  • 2,000 nits
  • New Double Tap gesture
  • Faster than ever
  • 4 color options
  • Integrates with Apple HomeKit


  • Doesn’t work without an iPhone

Should you upgrade to the Apple Watch 9?

The Apple Watch 9 offers a bump in hardware and software for those wearing an older Apple Watch. Things like a brighter display, a new S9 chip that’s noticeably faster, and gestures are worth the asking price for those still getting their money out of older hardware.

And if you’re considering jumping over to your first smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 9 is a good entry point.

If you have the Apple Watch 8, though, you won’t be blown away by this model and can safely wait for the next release, which will hopefully be more than a refresh.
