How to watch Apple’s ‘Spring Forward’ event today, and what to expect

Usually, springing forward isn’t fun at all. You lose an hour of daylight and everybody’s grumpy on Monday, but this year, we have Apple’s Spring Forward event to cheer us all up. Apple is expected to show off its Apple Watch — and who knows what else — at 10 a.m. PST and 1 p.m. EST.

We saw a short glimpse of the Watch back in September, and since then we’ve been treated to Jony Ive waxing poetic about design and that tiny little click watch straps make, as well as Vogue models wearing the Watch with fashionable outfits, but we still don’t know too much about how the Apple Watch will actually work. After today, we hope to know every single minute detail about it. We’ll most certainly hear about all the specs, the apps, the straps, and most importantly, the price and release date.

Although it’s possible that Apple will use this entire event to talk up its first-ever smartwatch, it’s also likely that Apple has something else up its sleeve. It could be the 12-inch Macbook Air we’ve heard so much about, the massive iPad Pro, the new music streaming service, some cool Beats headphones, or even HomeKit. Who knows? But it is standard to hear about “one more thing” at these kinds of events. Also, the Apple Store is shut down while the company adds new products, so we may see something go up for sale or pre-order today.

Now that we’ve got speculation out of the way, here’s how to watch the Apple event online:

  • Starting time: March 9 in San Francisco: 10 a.m. / New York: 1 p.m. / London: 5 p.m. / Berlin: 6 p.m. / Moscow: 8 p.m. March 10 in Beijing: 1 a.m. / Tokyo: 2 a.m. / Sydney: 4 a.m.
  • Stream it live online: You can watch Apple’s live stream on any Apple TV (6.2 or later) via the dedicated event channel, or on the Safari browser on OS X (10.6.8 and up) and iOS devices (iOS 6 and up). It’ll be streaming on the following website:

Apple now has an entirely new category of Apple Watch designed for outdoor adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts: the Apple Watch Ultra. The new wearable is larger, more durable, and more rugged than any model Apple has released in the past. It even comes with some rugged new Apple Watch bands to match the more adventurous design.

However, its 49mm size likely has you asking at least one obvious question: Will my existing Apple Watch bands work with the Apple Watch Ultra?

The rugged Apple Watch Ultra is understandably getting most of the attention as the smartwatch for extreme outdoor adventure enthusiasts. After all, it offers durability and protection against elements never before seen on an Apple Watch.

However, just because the Apple Watch Ultra can handle 40-meter dives and has been certified to military standards for temperature, immersion, shock, and vibration, that doesn’t mean that Apple’s newly released Apple Watch Series 8 isn’t also durable in its own right.
