Apple has released the Watch Series 8 with new features such as temperature detection, ovulation estimates, crash detection and international roaming

Apple has just unveiled the new version of the Apple Watch. The new Apple Watch Series 8 comes with a plethora of new features.

Of all the new cool features of the Watch Series 8, the power-saving mode to double battery life, the skin temperature sensor, and new accelerometers for detecting car accidents are the most talked about.

At first glance, the Apple Watch Series 8 looks almost exactly like the Series 7. It has the same ECG, GPS module, SpO2 sensor, almost borderless always-on AMOLED display, and many of the same fitness features as the Series 7. But there are some interesting new things.

What’s new in Apple Watch Series 8

Temperature Sensor and Retrospective Ovulation Estimates

First of all, the smartwatch has a sensor that measures the temperature of the skin. This sensor can also pick up temperature changes as low as 0.1 degrees Celsius, even while the wearer is sleeping.

This feature is primarily intended to make it easier to track a woman’s cycle. Changes in skin temperature allow the Apple Watch to determine how far along the cycle is. This should make it easier to find the fertile days or ovulation and keep track of any changes.

This information is very useful for people planning a family so that they can find the right time to conceive.

The information that is collected is stored in such a way that only the user can read it.

Car Accident Detection

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States and other countries. During such times, the Apple Watch Series 8 can alert emergency services for immediate assistance thanks to the new Crash Detection feature.

The Apple Watch Series 8 also has a new motion sensor that can measure up to 256G of force. Accidents must be accurately identified so that an emergency call can be made automatically. The new sensors are intended to prevent accidental emergency calls.

Energy-saving mode to double the battery

Battery life usually stays at 18 hours, but the smartwatch now has a power-saving mode that can effectively double the run time to 36 hours without disabling key features like fitness tracking. With watchOS 9, this feature is also available on Series 4 and later models.

International roaming

Series 8 mobile models also support international roaming. So the new generation Apple Watch can stay connected to your cellular network while you travel abroad.

You can easily add your Apple Watch to your iPhone roaming plan at little or no cost. By the end of the year, international roaming will be available from more than 30 carriers worldwide.

It is supported on all mobile models of the Apple Watch from Series 5 and with watchOS 9.

Prices and availability

As an aluminum watch, the Apple Watch Series 8 comes in Midnight, Starlight, Silver and Product(RED).

As a stainless steel watch, it is available in gold, silver and graphite.

There is also the Nike+ version and the pricey Herm├ęs version.

The Apple Watch Series 8 costs $399 (aluminum, GPS) or $499 (aluminum, cellular) in the US.

Users can order the Apple Series 8 starting today and it will be available September 16, 2022.

Sum up

That’s the incredible new Apple Watch Series 8 with temperature sensing, retrospective ovulation estimates, crash detection and international roaming, on top of the best health features like Blood Oxygen, ECG and sleep tracking.
