Apple Watch Series 8 Highlights
Always-On Retina display.
Take it all in. Get it all done. The bright Always‑On screen makes detailed watch faces look stunning and easy to read, even when your wrist is down. The large display accommodates all your favorite complications and makes tapping, typing, and swiping a snap.
Tougher than ever
The same innovations used to create the beautiful, edge‑to‑edge Always‑On display also help make it incredibly durable. A thick front crystal, robust geometry, and flat base make it resistant to cracking.
- Crack Resistant – Designed to be strong.
- Dust Resistant – IP6X certification
- Water Resistant – Swimproof with WR50 water resistance.
Measure your blood oxygen/Take an ECG at any time.
It’s a breathtaking innovation. The remarkable sensor and app in Apple Watch Series 8 allow you to take on‑demand readings of your blood oxygen as well as background readings, day and night.With the ECG app, Apple Watch Series 8 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single‑lead electrocardiogram.
Introducing temperature sensing.
Understand your cycle like never before. Apple Watch Series 8 has an innovative new sensor that tracks your temperature while you sleep, so you can see changes over time. Cycle Tracking uses this data to provide a retrospective estimate of when you likely ovulated, which can be helpful for family planning. When combined with your heart rate and logged cycle data, you’ll get a detailed view of your menstrual cycle.
Help on automatic. For the first time, Apple Watch Series 8 is able to detect if you’re in a severe car crash. When a crash is detected, Crash Detection can automatically connect you with emergency services, provide dispatchers with your location, and notify your emergency contacts. Crash Detection uses the combined power of an improved 3-axis gyroscope and a new g-force accelerometer that has the highest dynamic range in any smartwatch. It also uses a barometer, GPS, and an advanced sensor-fusion algorithm trained on over 1 million hours of real-world driving and crash data to detect if you’re in a severe crash.
Emergency SOS/Fall Detection.
Press and hold the side button and Apple Watch can call local emergency services to share your location. Apple Watch Series 8 can detect if you’ve taken a hard fall and connect you with emergency services if you’re immobile. And it’s optimized when you are using the Workout app.
