Apple Inc. unveiled a new line of smartwatches that includes a bigger, more rugged model called Ultra, aiming to attract hikers, long-distance runners and other serious athletes. 

The $799 device has a larger screen and a new button that gives users “quick physical control” for a range of functions, the company said Wednesday during a presentation dubbed Far Out, an event that will include iPhone and AirPods announcements. The Ultra also has a bigger battery that can keep it running for up to 60 hours in low-power mode.
