In true Apple style, the company has designed the device's retail packaging in a way that reflects its vision. As shared by 3D artist Ian Zelbo, the box depicts a snowy and sublime mountain vista surrounded by foreboding atmospheric clouds, with the wider landscape overlapping into the inner packaging.

The all-new Apple Watch Ultra is available to pre-order starting now in the U.S., Canada, Australia, France, Germany, India, Japan, the U.K., and more than 40 other countries and regions around the world, with pricing set at $799. Apple Watch Ultra will launch in stores and begin arriving to customers on September 23.

That is really cool. The packaging clearly shows that the watch is for a niche market not us that tend to sit at desks and work lol

Pulled the trigger on the Ultra with black strap. I was looking to replace my Series 5 44mm with a cellular model and this is everything I was hoping for, including a newish design. I tend to keep my watches for 3 years so looking forward to getting the Ultra!
