The Apple Watch Series 8 is the company’s most recent smartwatch designed to keep you connected, active, and even protected. But should you upgrade to Apple’s newest watch if you presently own a Series 7 or a previous Apple Watch? The price of the Apple Watch Series 8 is $499 for cellular and $399 for Wi-Fi only. Includes three months of Fitness+. For comparison, Series 4 through 7 starts at the same price as the entry-level model.
Is the all Apple Watch 8 designs (Apple Watch 8 ครบทุกแบบ, term in Thai) and features worth it? Let’s take a look at the features of this all-new Apple Watch Series 8.
- Ability to read body temperature – The new wrist temperature feature measures your body temperature over the course of the night. Temperature variations from the average are displayed in the iPhone Health app.
- Cycle tracking – It lets you know if you have irregular or lengthy periods.
- Low power mode – Low Power Mode: Conserve battery life by turning off features like the always-on display and automated workout detection when the battery is low. Low Power Mode, which is compatible with all Apple Watch models running watchOS 9, extends battery life for up to 36 hours.
- Crash detection – A bad fall can already be detected by the Apple Watch’s fall detection feature. The 2022 Apple Watch has an upgrade that will do the same function in the event of auto accidents, as well as notify your emergency contacts and phone emergency services if necessary.
- International roaming – It is available on cellular models.
The Specs and Hardware
The Apple Watch Series 8 maintains the screen sizes of the Series 7, but the other variants from 2022 provide more options. The smaller Apple Watch SE comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes, while the larger Apple Watch Ultra features a 49mm screen. To maximize its casing, the Series 8 sports an edge-to-edge, always-on Retina display, which Apple claims has 20% more screen display than the SE.
New hardware and functionality are also present in Series 8. Using a third-generation sensor that has been updated, it continues to track your heart rate while also providing accurate blood oxygen and ECG readings. The primary health update focuses on temperature monitoring, but it also includes accelerometer functionality like fall and accident detection. You can create waypoints and go back if you get lost using the upgraded Compass app and the GPS.
The 32GB storage space on the Apple Watch Series 8 remains unchanged from the Series 5 model. It also makes use of the Series 4-original W3 wireless chip. Although Apple has upgraded the “system on a chip” it still has the same ultra-wideband U1 chip as the previous several models. If you are fond of the Apple Watch Series, the new series 8 is definitely a must-have. As you can see, it has some of the features that already exist in the previous models, but it also has new features that make it stand out from the previous Apple watch models.
