Someone created a blue Apple Watch Ultra, and it’s … different

Despite the base versions often being considered luxury items for many people, there are others who want their Apple devices to be even more luxurious. There have been plenty of custom luxury iPhones made by various third-party sellers, and now the Apple Watch Ultra is getting another taste of the posh treatment.

Simply put, it looks like … a lot. This latest custom Apple Watch Ultra is seemingly the first of its kind and sports an anodized blue body with a gold-plated band. You can see it for yourself in the video and pictures below.

First EVER Custom Anodized Apple Watch Ultra Gold Digital Crown Ring!

To be clear, this isn’t jeweler De Billas Lux’s first custom Apple Watch Ultra. However, it is the first one that has undergone the anodization process to change the color of the watch’s titanium body. The results are pretty striking, as the blue is a lovely deep color that harks back to the iPhone 12‘s blue color option — the last time that Apple went all in on a dark blue iPhone.

Style preference is, obviously, subjective, but the incredible blue color of the Apple Watch Ultra’s body paired with the in-your-face gold plating of the watch band is a little much for me personally. In a video showing off the watch, it’s mentioned that it’s a custom job for someone who picked out the colors personally, so clearly, it’s someone‘s thing. If it’s also your thing, you can buy the blue-and-gold custom watch if you’re willing to pay a decent chunk of change.

Any time luxury custom devices go on sale, one of the first things that most people wonder about is how much they cost. You can buy the blue-and-gold Apple Watch Ultra directly from De Billas Lux’s website for $1,499. You may need to act fast, however, since it’s currently listed as being on sale — the normal retail price is $2,300.

To be entirely honest, $1,499 for a custom Apple Watch Ultra isn’t terrible when you really think about it. A regular, non-gold plated watch bought directly from Apple will run you roughly $800 brand new. While the custom version is nearly double the price, it’s not out of line with other flagship Apple devices. If you’re going to buy it, though, make sure you can get down with blue and gold, a color combo that might make you look like an undercover member of the X-Men.

The Palette watch face on the Apple Watch Series 9.

Apple's annual developers conference, WWDC 2024, is in the books. This year's edition of WWDC was special, with Apple going all in on Apple Intelligence (its preferred term for its AI offerings). Besides key improvements coming to devices with larger screens, Apple also announced a new version of watchOS with fitness-tracking enhancements, new live widgets, and smarter delivery of health stats through the new Vitals app. If you are curious to try these new features, you need an Apple Watch model compatible with watchOS 11.

This probably leaves you wondering: "Which models of the Apple Watch will get watchOS 11?" While the short answer is the Apple Watch Series 6 and newer models, a more detailed list with all the supported models follows below.

The Vitals app could make the Apple Watch an Oura Ring killer

As a long-term Oura Ring wearer, the feature I’m looking forward to most in Apple’s WatchOS 11 is the new Vitals app.

It may look like just another extension of the Health app and the familiar Rings screen, but if it delivers on its promises of insights into your state of health, it has the potential to become invaluable.
