Although you may need to know that it's just a new feature and nothing more. This feature does not provide decompression information, gas analysis, or other scuba-related information.
The feature of this app is that it uses the various sensors in the watch to track your swimming activity and provides you with information about your swimming workout, such as distance, pace, stroke type, etc.
This app is not just for tracking your swimming data but can also be used for other activities like running, walking, and, you know, the rest.
What is the Depth app, and what does it do
Let's dive deep (no pun intended) and learn more about the Depth app. So the Depth app is a new feature on the Apple Watch Ultra that uses the various sensors in the watch to track your underwater activity. The depth sensor can be used with the third party application that functions as dive computers and its complaint with the EN13319, known internationally for dive computers and gauges.
It records your current underwater time, obvious depth and maximum session, and how deep you have been in your last swim.
The sensor can take measurements every 10 seconds and gives you an overview of your swimming data that can be found in the Health app on your iPhone. The app also displays your average pace, distance, and stroke type.
You want to learn that the accuracy is plus or minus one meter.
How to use the Depth app on Apple Watch Ultra in Vancouver
Now that we know what the Depth app is let's understand how you can use it.
If you live in or are visiting Vancouver and want to take advantage of the Depth app, here's what you need to do:
Open your setting menu on your Apple Watch>go to the setting> General and then select auto-launch.
The best part is after enabling it will automatically detect the water and starts recording your swimming workout.
If you want to change the measurement units, you can go to the Depth app>Settings>Units.
You can change the default swim style by going to Settings>Swim Style.
Once you're done with your swimming workout, the app will summarize your data.
Features of the Depth app
Users might want to open their workout records before indulging themselves in any water activity. To do so, go to the Health app>Workouts> tap on the workout you want to open.
The summary will include information such as:
- How long you've been swimming
- The average pace
- The total distance
- How many laps you've swam
And many more.
Once your depth app is functional manually or automatically, the water lock will be activated. It will stay until you end your swimming workout. The water lock prevents the screen from being turned on by mistake when wet.
After ending the session, a quick overview of your swimming workout pops up.
Press and hold it, and then your apple watch will make a sound and flush out all the water from the speaker and the microphone.
