Features of All Our Apple Watches

Man with Apple Watch

As you will see later in this article, Apple Watches come in all shapes and sizes, offering special new features with every generation released.

But if you take a step back, you'll discover that most have underlying characteristics universal to every Apple Watch device, whether it's a refurbished Apple Watch Series 5 or a refurbished Apple Watch Series 8.

Here are some of them below.

The Design

Each watch in our collection comes in a square design with rounded bezels, showcasing a Digital Crown located on the side.

Generally, they come encased in an Aluminium frame, customisable in various colours, whether that be Red, Silver, Starlight, or something else entirely, with a wrist strap to match.

You'll also obtain an Always-On Retina Display, which enables the Apple Watch to dim during downtime to provide all-day battery life while allowing you to view the time and important notifications at a glance.

The Apps on the Apple Watch

Although these vary widely between different models, our refurbished Apple Watches come with a range of unique features as expected of a brand-new watch.

The most notable ones include:

  • Family Setup: Every timepiece in our collection comes with Family Setup, which allows family members to enjoy the features of an Apple Watch without the member possessing an iPhone.

    This feature can be managed to allow your child access to messaging, calls, and more via the double tap gesture without undermining the integrity of their safety - altogether turning it into a great kids' Apple Watch.

  • Fitness and Health App: Most Apple Watches come with various versions of different fitness and health tracking apps that allow you to track your progress throughout the day.

    Take, for example, the ECG app - a feature that allows you to monitor your heartbeat and rhythm using the electrical heart sensor. Find out more here.

  • The Wonderful Siri: An Apple product wouldn't be the same without its little friend, so you shouldn't expect anything less from an Apple Watch.

    That's why all our refurbished timepieces come with support Siri, providing you with answers when on the move.

Plus, you can also obtain these devices with GPS + Cellular connectivity, enabling you to gain an internet connection when away from Wi-Fi.

The Refurbished Apple Watch 8


Moving away from the general aspects of these Apple products, let's delve into the details that make each device unique.

With the Series 8, you get a large number of features found in its successor - the Apple Watch Series 9 - and in previous generations, including the low power mode and always-on Retina display, just to name a few.

Similar to those mentioned above, this device is generally considered mid-range, positioning itself between the price point of an Apple Watch SE and an Apple Watch Ultra of the corresponding generation.

Just here's where things start to get interesting. Unlike past generations, you also obtain these innovative features:

  • A Temperature Sensor: The Series 8 comes with a temperature sensor located on the back and underneath the retina display.

    This feature allows you to track your temperature at night, making it perfect for monitoring female health especially.

  • Improved Sensors: When you purchase this watch, you also obtain two improved gyroscopes, accelerometer and motion sensors, allowing you to record your fitness process more precisely.

  • Crash Detection Feature: This model also comes with a crash detection feature, which will protect you during unfortunate incidents by calling emergency services if a crash is detected.

The Refurbished Apple Watch Series 7


Progressing further down the line leads us to the refurbished Apple Watch Series 7 - a product that took significant improvements from the Series 6 model.

Offering promises of bigger and better, you can expect the following features with this model.

  • Modern Design: A true edge-to-edge display with 40% thinner bezels to provide a more modern, sleek design.

    This is alongside its new sizes - a 41mm and a 45mm display, ever so slightly larger than the Series 6 models.

  • Brighter Interface: Similar to its newer counterpart, the Series 7 also has a 70% brighter Always-On display, ensuring ease of viewing in all lighting conditions. Discover more here.

  • S7 Chip: An evolved chip to provide efficient, smooth performance on the model's new sizes.

While this device isn't as glorious as the Apple Watch Ultra 2, it is more than enough to give you fantastic, relevant features even today.

The Refurbished Apple Watch Series 6


Similar to the Series Watch 7, the refurbished Apple Watch Series 6 strikes a perfect balance, boasting impressive specs at a great price point.

Here's what sets this device apart from the rest:

  • New Sensors: Unlike its predecessor, the Series 6 comes equipped with an Always-On Altimeter and a Blood Oxygen Sensor.

    The former is designed to track your elevation in real-time, while the latter measures the oxygen saturation in your blood.

  • Bright Display: The Series 6 also features a display that's two and a half times brighter than the Series 5 when used outdoors.

  • Faster Processor: Additionally, this device is powered by an S6 chip, a processor that's two and a half times faster than its predecessor.

Refurbished Apple Watch Series 5


Last but not least is the Series 5 Apple Watch - a device that can provide you with more than basic features for your everyday desires.

  • Apple Music: Similar to its more recent iterations, with this device, you also gain access to Apple Music, enabling you to listen to your favourite tunes while away from your phone.

  • International Emergency Calling: The Series 5 is one of the first Apple Watches to feature international emergency calling capabilities, allowing you to connect with local emergency services anywhere in the world.

  • Built-in Compass: It also comes equipped with a built-in compass, making outdoor pursuits a little more enjoyable.

While this device is ideal for those seeking high-quality features at an affordable price, the refurbished Apple Watch Series 5 from UR stands out as an exceptional choice for beginners.

It combines outstanding performance with unrivalled value, offering top-tier specifications at the most competitive price on the market.
