The Apple Watch Series 8 is probably one of the best bets in the mid-range category of smartwatches, at present. This supercool device was unveiled at the grand occasion of the Apple Event 2022, back in September, last year. It showed early promise during our first meeting and now it looks to be a major force to reckon with.
For the uninitiated, the competition appears cut-throat in the segment of premium smartwatches out there. But thanks to an array of over-the-top features and stunning design, the Apple Watch Series 8 has managed to win hearts as well as accolades in such a short stint.
Let’s examine the Watch Series 8 from the Cupertino-based tech-giant, under our watchful eyes and unravel all the important aspects around it. Here we go!
Apple Watch Series 8
Apple, which started its fairytale saga in a garage, continues to redefine its class and push its limits. And the Apple Watch Series 8 is no exception. It has gone through a serious upgrade to edge past its able predecessors by more than fine margins. When we have a close look at it we realize that among the popular options in the smartwatch category, only its in-house compatriot the Apple Watch Ultra can surpass it, by quite a distance.
Until a while ago, there wasn’t such euphoria around smartwatches in the world. It all started with fitness bands and then to keep pace with our fast-growing demands, makers started to evolve their gadgets and now Apple shows us that there’s not much left that its top-notch smartwatches can’t do. Moreover, when it comes to style, few can give Apple watches a serious run for money.
We saw the life-saving Emergency SOS via Satellite feature going live on iPhone 14, last year. And now, we can find out some mind-blowing features like, emergency SOS, international emergency calling, fall Detection and crash Detection in the Apple Watch Series 8.
The experience seems smooth and seamless, with an always-on display which is crack resistant and can reflect important insights of your body, all thanks to the advanced health sensors. From tracking your menstrual cycle to analyzing your sleep minutely (showing the duration of core or deep sleep), the Apple Watch Series 8 doesn’t get tired of springing surprises.
You can set medication reminders, see the oxygen level in your blood (something which became all the more important after the pandemic hit us hard), take an ECG or customize your workouts. For, it’s said that prevention is better than cure and the Apple Watch Series 8 leaves no stone unturned to make the most of it.
Now, let’s have a quick look at its major features to have a clear understanding of what it brings to the wrist.
