The newly announced Apple Watch Series 8 is an update with a focus on speed improvements and fitness.

Rumors pointed to a significant Apple Watch redesign for the previous two generations. Instead, for 2022, Apple iterated on the existing design with minor changes that enhanced the overall experience.

The Apple Watch Series 8 could easily be mistaken for the Apple Watch Series 7 that came before it. The curved chassis, Digital Crown, speaker cutouts, and edge-to-edge display are identical.

The external design didn’t need to change to accommodate the new body temperature sensor. It uses the existing sensor’s contact with skin to take periodic measurements to observe temperature trends.

Similar to the other health sensors on Apple Watch, the temperature sensor isn’t meant to replace dedicated medical equipment. Instead, it will alert the user if a trend indicates health issues, such as women’s health.

The device can give an ovulation date estimate to help women get a better understanding of their cycle. Cycle tracking data is encrypted on device and can only be unlocked with a passcode.

A new Low Power Mode can give up to 36 hours of battery life on a single charge. It disables certain features such as the always-on display. It’s available on the Apple Watch Series 4 and later.

Aluminum color options include Midnight, Starlight, Silver, and (PRODUCT)RED. Stainless steel sticks with Silver, Graphite, and Gold. Apple customers can purchase it for $399 for GPS and $499 for the cellular option. A purchase of this model gives customers three months of Fitness+ for free. It will be available starting on September 16 and people can order it today.
