Apple Watch Series 8 with major upgrades
- 19 Jul, 2022
Apple’s next big announcement in the tech world could be its upcoming launch of Apple Watch Series 8. Eager customers will be able to buy the all new Apple Watch in the fall of 2022. The previous Apple Watch series offered quite an upgrade with smaller bezels allowing for a bigger display, improved always-on display performance, dust resistance and more. However, this year's Apple Watch Series 8 is ready to beat all the old upgrades and improvements with amazing price value. An interesting new feature in the watch series is said to be a temperature sensor that can detect body temperature. Putting all the rumours together, we can put on a rough image of what Apple Watch Series 8 would look like.
Launched with a new tough design
Apple has mostly played it safe when it came to the fundamental design of the Apple Watch Series since the beginning. Rumours have noted that the Series 8 would come in different sizes like 41mm, 45mm, and 50mm. However, rumours suggest that Watch Series 8 could see the biggest redesign in the history of Apple watches. Watch Series 8 will have sort of a similar design as the previous models but will feature a flat front glass display. This flat edge display could bring the design closer to that of recent models of iPhone and iPad, as flatter sides generally have a more industrial look.
In order to add more to the looks, Apple is working on an “extreme sports” version of the watch. This tough version will feature a larger screen and a metal casing that's better able to stand up to nature. Apple may use the extra display area to provide more fitness metrics on the Apple Watch face at one time. It will be specifically aimed at athletes, hikers, and others who experience more extreme conditions when wearing their Apple Watches. The tech giant will also include improved impact resistance and protection in the form of a metal material that is stronger than aluminium. This could be Apple’s biggest watch till date with a bounty of features.
Fever Detection - Apple Watch series 8 with temp sensor
As per reports, a body temperature sensor could be added to the Apple Watch Series 2022. This feature would support taking a person’s temperature and help with fever detection. Initially Series 7 was supposed to support this feature but was unable to. Hence, with improved algorithms, the series 8 could include this crucial body temperature monitoring feature. However, adding this feature to a smartwatch is not as easy as it may appear. Skin temperature can vary from core body temperature and hence the readings can be inaccurate. The tech world has its eyes set on Apple Watch Series 8 to break some new tech bounds.
Blood pressure monitoring may be possible with the new apple watch
Apple’s smartwatches are becoming health ambitious day by day. Blood pressure monitoring could be one of the most interesting key features of the Apple Watch Series 8. This feature will show users how their blood pressure is trending, but without providing a baseline measure of systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Such a feature if accurately launched in the Apple smartwatch would make diabetes management much easier as it would no longer require puncturing the skin. The company is working on short wavelength infrared sensors, which could allow the Apple Watch Series 8 to monitor blood glucose by measuring the amount of sugar in the blood. Apple has been working on this feature for a long time now and it could be a major breakthrough in the health and tech industry.
Apple watch series 8 with low power mode
This year’s Apple Watch will offer significant improvements as it is expected to feature an S8 chip with the same specs as its predecessor. Along with the long list of specifications, the Apple Watch 8 will include an exclusive low power mode. This should extend battery life, ensuring longer periods of use of the smartwatch. The feature is important as it would allow more functions to be performed in the watch while you explore.
Apple watch series 8 price in Australia
There is a lot of excitement considering the launch of Apple Watch Series 8 in 2022. The Apple Watch is generally announced and released in September and we are expecting the same this year too. The market has its eyes set on this new upcoming launch by Apple. The price of Apple Watch Series 8 might seem like too much as it is being launched with Apple Watch SE which is a low range smartwatch option. The Apple Watch model costs AU $429 for the 40mm and AU $479 if you prefer a 44mm display. Considering the list of features and specs, the prices might justify themselves.
