Apple Watch Series 9 review

It transforms your hand into a button and Siri is quicker

Apple is releasing new Apple Watch models, called Series 9, on Friday.

The Series 9 comes with a faster chip, the SiP 9, that enables new features, including a major improvement to Siri

The display sizes for this year's model are the same as they were for previous year: 41mm and 45mm.

The watches this year don't have any new sensors, and the style is the same as it has been since 2018.

The speedier chip in Series 9 offers new functions, including a significant Siri improvement.

The biggest new change on the new Apple Watch is a new way to interact with it

A gesture that doesn’t require tapping the screen or pressing a button.

It’s called “double tap,” and it’s simple to use: Raise your arm up, like you’re checking the time, to activate the Apple Watch

This year's watches also include an improved central chip, or System-in-Package, according to Apple.

Most notably, it enables a much faster Siri which doesn’t need to be connected to the internet.

The other big hardware improvement to the Apple Watch Series 9 is a brighter display

The Apple Watch Series 9 costs $429 for the larger screen and $399 for the smaller screen.
