(1.) Watch Series 9 is powered by the new S9 chip, which, the company claims, is the ‘most powerful’ Apple Watch till date. The smartwatch's GPU (graphics processing unit) is 30% faster, while battery life remains ‘unchanged.’

(2.) The S9 chip carries as many as 5.6 billion transistors, along with a new four-core neural engine. This, in turn, provides all-day, 18-hour battery life.

(3.) To make responsiveness faster for several tasks, the tech giant has enabled Siri requests for Watch Series 9 on the smartwatch itself. Also, a new feature allows Siri to access health data; this feature will arrive later this year, starting in English and Mandarin.

(4.) The device has a brightness of 2000 nits; for dark environments, this brightness can be reduced to 1 nit.

(5.) With Watch Series 9, the Cupertino, California-based giant is also bringing more integration with the HomePod. This is helpful or devices with things such as play lists.

The ‘double tap’ gesture

By simply tapping their thumb and forefinger together, twice, users will be able to perform functions such as answer calls, end calls, open widgets, and more, without actually touching Watch Series 9.

The feature will be introduced to the smartwatch in October.
