Apple announced two new watches on Wednesday, including the Apple Watch Ultra. It’s huge. It’s made out of titanium. It costs $799. And it’s built for people who are into extreme sports, like diving and kite surfing, as it’s twice as water resistant as the previous models.

The screen has other cool features. It’s twice as bright as before, so it’s even easier to see outside. And it has a new “Night Mode” watch face that shows a compass and turns the watch red so it’s easier to view in the dark.

There’s a new Action Button. It’s orange, which definitely stands out, but can be customized to launch an app when you tap it. So, you can start a workout, mark a specific waypoint on a hike, launch your music app and more, just by tapping it.

It’s thicker than other Apple Watches, but includes some new functions like a depth gauge for real-time measurements under water. It also has up to 36 hours of battery life in normal use, or up to 60 hours on low-power settings. Apple says the 60-hour option is “coming soon.” That compares to 18 hours for the regular Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch Ultra is available to order now and arrives on Sept. 23.
