The Apple Watch Series 8 is the 8th generation of smartwatches of the Apple Watch lineup that was announced by Apple on September 7, 2022, succeeding the Apple Watch Series 7. It became available on the following September 16th.[1]

New features[]

The Series 8 includes a dual temperature sensor that can record body temperature every 5 seconds, to detect the effects of alcohol, illness, or ovulation with health data encrypted to protect privacy. One sensor is next to the skin and the other is located behind the display to account for ambient temperature. It also features new motion sensors for Crash Detection of up to 256 Gs. The aluminum cases are available in starlight, midnight, silver, or (PRODUCT)RED while the stainless steel cases are available in gold, graphite, or silver.[2]

Leaked specifications[]

The Series 8 came pre-installed with watchOS 9, which was introduced on June 6 at the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference. Supply chain reports indicated that its exterior design had been updated with flatter surfaces reminiscent of the aesthetic designs of the iPhone 12 and 13 series. However, this turned out not to be the case.[3][4]


Recording of the video announcement of the Apple Watch Series 8 and iPhone 14 series had reportedly begun in August 2022 to be streamed in a special event that is scheduled to be held on September 7.[5][6]
