The Apple Watch Ultra Depth Tracker Gets Tested In A Dive Chamber

Like many of you tuning into Apple’s Event at Apple Park a few weeks back, we got our first look at the Apple Watch Ultra. It’s the first time the Apple Watch has seen an update in case design and integrates a suite of new features. As a result, the Apple Watch Ultra created some hoopla among those in the watch community, and rightly so. The Apple Watch Ultra is now constructed out of Titanium, sports a larger (and brighter) screen and equipped with an upgraded water resistance rating up to 100 meters. Partnering up with the Oceanic+ app, the Apple Watch Ultra transforms into a dive computer for the recreational diver, incorporating key information for those below the surface such as depth rating, GPS tracking, and a dive log (up to twelve dives). But according to Apple, the depth app will only read up to 40 meters (131 feet) during a dive, despite the watch being rated up to 100 meters. So what happens when the Apple Watch Ultra passes that 40 meter marker? Check out the video above to find out.

In April of 1912, a merchant vessel by the name of the SS Mesaba was crossing the Northern Atlantic, and during her journey, sent a warning message to an ocean-liner making a similar trip, cautioning them of icebergs along the seaway. That ocean-liner was the Titanic. We’re all aware that the Titanic got the message too late and tragically sank to the bottom of the ocean. But whatever happened to the SS Mesaba?

Six years later, the SS Mesaba would also reach their demise. Not by an iceberg, but by a torpedo from a German U-boat while it was making a convoy trip from Liverpool to Philadelphia. Well after a century later, researchers from Bangor University have finally identified the ship’s exact resting place in the middle of the Irish Sea. Using a state-of-the-art multibeam sonar machine, the team was able to confirm that the ship on their radar was in fact the SS Mesaba. For more details about the new discovery as well as how this technology will assist researchers from Bangor University with other potential historical findings, check out the article here.

Henry Catchpole’s Makes His Debut On Hagerty Media With “The Driver’s Seat”

You’ve seen Henry Catchpole’s work on various automotive media outlets such as Evo and Carfection. Reading his articles and watching his video reviews, you can’t help but feel his authentic enthusiasm for anything that has a motor and four wheels. Catchpole can trace his love for cars back to his childhood days when he’d regularly watch Formula One and annually attend Goodwood Festival of Speed. Coming in at top ten at a motoring journalism competition during his adolescent years, it’s no surprise that he’d find his way to the automotive journalism scene and end up being a significant voice in it.

Now Catchpole has taken his talents over to Hagerty Media and makes his debut with his series entitled “The Driver Seat”. In its first installment, Catchpole is seen whipping around in a red MST MK1 on the very roads that Roger Clark and Hannu Mikkola raced on. Watching Catchpole explain every detail while driving the MST MK1 is fun and will make you want to jump into anything that you could put into ‘drive’. The MST MK1 in action is quite the sight. It’s fast, hugs every turn, and is very, very loud. Plug in your headphones, turn the volume up, and enjoy.

DALL-E Generator Opens Up To The Masses

DALL-E was sort of a thing when it first hit the internet. Okay, it was more than a thing. Millions of images were generated strictly through image-word association by artificial intelligence when DALL-E2 was released back in April. We even dedicated an article here on W&W to watch-related AI ‘art’. Well according to an article written by Benj Edwards from Ars Technica, OpenAI has announced that they have removed the waitlist to use the ‘image synthesis’ platform, opening up the image generator service to the public. If you’ve been curious about messing around with the DALL-E generator, but previously didn’t want to shell out some cash for the service, now’s the time to head on over to OpenAI to sign up for an account.
