The Apple Watch Series 8 45mm is now available, and it comes with design upgrades, including a larger screen, thinner display bezels, and innovative health and safety features. The device’s skin temperature sensor informs two areas of Apple’s health suite: sleep and cycle tracks. The feature requires at least a month to calibrate. Meanwhile, crash detection is a new addition made possible by upgraded motion sensors in Series 8. The device can detect a crash precisely as it happens and automatically call emergency services and notify emergency contacts. The Apple Watch Series 8 45mm comes in Midnight, Silver, Starlight, and Product Red colors, with Blue and Green watches no longer available.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is nearly comparable to the Apple Watch Series 7 thanks to its svelte, curvier casing and smaller display bezels. To accommodate features like the Always-On Display, new watchOS 9 faces, and a QWERTY keyboard for messaging, the new smartwatch’s screen is 20% bigger than the one on the Apple Watch Series 6. Even though the Apple Watch already has these functions, those upgrading from earlier versions will find the makeover a significant upgrade. By upgrading from an Apple Watch Series 5 or 4, you may prepare for a larger usable screen.
The recognizable side button and digital crown are located on the side of the Apple Watch Series 8 and are used with the touchscreen to navigate the device. The Apple Watch Series 8’s design is still simple, even though an action button on the side, like the Apple Watch Ultra, would be good. The smartwatch is available in the following hues: Midnight, Silver, Starlight, and Product Red. Blue and green watches are no longer offered. But you may customize your Apple Watch by identifying the finest bands for your taste.
Sensor for Skin Temperature
A skin temperature sensor is a new addition to the Apple Watch Series 8 that feeds information into two features of Apple’s health suite: sleep monitoring and cycle tracks. When it comes to sleep, variations from the nighttime temperature baseline help you keep track of the outside influences on your usual sleep. For instance, going somewhere or staying out late. The Apple Watch Series 8 can forecast ovulation windows using wrist temperature and other period monitoring data for women attempting to get pregnant. It has been demonstrated that variations in wrist temperature are reliable predictors of possible ovulation. A sense of validation may come from nightly wrist temperature readings if you have a disease that affects your cycle. But, it takes at least a month to calibrate the function, and privacy is crucial.
End-to-end encryption is used to protect all cycle tracking data, and data may be removed at any moment. You can decide with whom to share your health information, for example, with a doctor helping you with fertility. Apple may utilize skin temperature as one of the measures to assess stress, much like the Fitbit Sense 2. Others have suggested that it may be used for identifying fevers.
Crash detection for the Apple Watch 8
The Apple Watch Series 8 now has a new safety function called crash detection. Although the Apple Watch has always featured fall detection and emergency SOS functions, Series 8’s improved motion sensors have made it feasible for crash detection, a new safety feature. The wristwatch contains an upgraded gyroscope, an accelerometer, and two new motion sensors. The watch can recognize a vehicle collision because these sensors can sample motion four times more quickly. When you may have been in an accident, the watch will then send a message to emergency contacts with your location. If you’re not responding, the function contacts emergency services and gives them your position. In the Emergency SOS settings of the Apple Watch app, the capability can be disabled.
Like the Series 7, the Apple Watch Series 8 has a new, more energy-efficient S7 processor that Apple claims can provide up to 18 hours of battery life. Nevertheless, usage, functionality, and other aspects affect the battery life. The Always-On Retina Display, now tuned to appear brighter outside while preserving battery life indoors, is one of the new features that might influence battery life. Meanwhile, Apple has released a new fast-charging USB-C cable that makes it easier for customers to charge their watch while moving. This cable can charge the Apple Watch Series 8 up to 80% in only 45 minutes.
