Apple Watch Series 8: what's new?
Before it was unveiled at the Apple Keynote 2022 last September, we put forward a number of hypotheses as to the new features that could have been installed in the devices: 48 MP for the iPhone 14, M2 chip for the iPads, etc.
For the Apple Watch, on the other hand, it was all noise and rumour. But then the reveal was not only one Apple Watch, not just two Apple Watches, but three new Apple Watches: The Apple Watch SE 2, the Apple Watch Series 8, and the Apple Watch Ultra. However, this article is a focus between the Series 7 and Series 8 to see if the 2022 upgrade really is worth the extra investment or not?
Frankly, the Apple Watch Series 8 functions are nothing drastically different from the Apple Watch Series 7:
the same LPTO OLED Retina screen with an Always-On Display of up to 1000 nits, but in a 41 or 45 mm case. Ion-X glass with aluminium cases or crystal sapphire glass with stainless steel cases.
GPS, of course, for your whereabouts and tracking.
A 64-bit dual-core S8 chip.
And the rest is the same.
New features include accident detection, temperature measurement and Bluetooth 5.3.
Car accident detection is added to the fall detection, which is already available on other models.
For women, the temperature sensor can be used to predict the date of ovulation to help monitor your period.
What about the Apple Watch Ultra?
Before we talk about the Apple Watch Series 7, we can't forget to mention the first Apple Watch Ultra. It's THE watch for athletes, with a larger 49mm case, an Action button and straps designed for all types of sport.
