Here are some of the best features coming to the new apple watch series 8 and as a little heads up the apple watch series 8 actually has the same body style design screen size as the previous generation the apple watch series 7.
Apple reveals Apple Watch Series 8 and its features
As always, we have swim proof, dust proofing and crack resistance. In addition to all of the main sensors like ECG, Sleep tracking. There’s a couple new ones the first one being a temperature sensor mostly for women’s health.
SOS services in Apple Watch Series 8
In addition to fall detection and SOS emergency calling, there’s a new crash detection feature. So if you are someone in a car and crash in a remote area, your apple watch can automatically call SOS services as well as contact your emergency contacts. It enables that through a new accelerometer that can detect up to 256 gs. So maybe useful to some f1 drivers that get into crashes. But really cool to see that being implemented obviously that’s a safety feature. You never want that to happen to you but having that peace of mind that that’s built into your apple watch. I think is one of those key features of safety that make the apple watch so successful.
Low Power Mode in Apple Watch series 8
Even with all these sensors running in the background the apple watch series 8 can still do all day battery life but it also has a new low power mode just like you see on your iPhones. Just to extend that a little bit because if you are on say long haul flights if you forget your charger for the night, you can always toggle that to switch and you can get that extra juice to last you until you can dock your watch again.
International Roaming on Apple Watch series 8
You can now do International roaming on your Apple Watch series 8.
Build Quality And available colors of Apple Watch series 8
It’s available in four colors so the Midnight, Starlight silver, Gold and Product Red. All 100% recycled aluminum stainless steel. You’ve got the three silver graphite and gold and the Nike apple watch edition with some new faces to get updated. Now finally in apple watch OS 9 you can use those sacred Nike watch faces across any of the models. A new Herme’s watch face for all of you fancy people and that is pretty much Apple watch series 8.
Honestly just from initially seeing this it seems like a minor update. You still have the same design same display and a lot of the changes are coming to the new sensor. So if you don’t need things like temperature, if you don’t need crash detection, if you don’t need that low power mode and they do start at 399$ and 499$ for the GPS cellular.
You can order them today and officially available on September 16th.
