Review for Apple Watch Series 8

The new Apple Watch Series 8 is officially here and it seems not a lot has changed compared to its predecessor, both internally and externally. However, there are some features to look forward to as you would expect in a new iteration. Keep reading to learn more about these new features including the Apple Watch Series 8 South Africa price.

Two different sizes to choose from as usual

Like every year, users get two different options to choose from: a 41MM version and a 45mm version. The smaller model comes with a 1.69-inch Retina LTPO OLED screen showing 430 x 352 pixels resolution. As for the bigger one comes with a 1.9-inch Retina LTPO OLED screen showing 484 x 396 pixels resolution. Though if you are looking for differences between the new Apple Apple Watch 8 South Africa PriceWatch Series 8 and the old Apple Watch Series 7, there is almost nothing to see design-wise. Users get an IP6X certified 50m water resistance and always-on display. For those of you who would like to get one of these after the Apple Watch Series 8 release date South Africa, these are the colors to look out for: Silver, Graphite, and Gold in the standard steel version, and midnight, silver, and starlight under the aluminum models.

More health focused features

Apple Watches are known for offering some really great health-focused features. With all those existing features, we get some new ones like a temperature sensor. Now, this smartwatch comes with a temperature sensor that can help users keep track of menstrual cycles. To make sure nobody feels unsafe sharing these data, it will stay on your device with encryption when the phone is locked via Face ID, passcode or Touch ID. It will be also helpful to track temperature while sleeping and can give you complete data on your Deep Sleep, REM, and core. Besides these new features, users get the old ECG monitoring, blood oxygen Apple Watch 8 release date South Africameasurement, and always-on altimeter. Another new feature that’s not directly health-related is Crash Detection. In case you are part of a car crash, it can help you get connected with your emergency services automatically. For those of you who are in the market for something a bit more affordable, there is the Apple Watch SE and Fitbit Sense you can check out. These are quite budget friendly compared to the Apple Watch Series 8 South Africa price.

Up to 18 hours of battery life

A lot of us were hoping to see improved battery life in the new Apple Watch Series 8. Unfortunately, Apple decided to stick to the usual battery life that we have seen in the past Apple Watch 7 and Apple Watch 6 (though it didn’t have fast charging). For those of you who are not familiar, this new watch will be offering up to 18 hours of life which can be extended to up to 36 hours using the new Low Power mode. Some of the other noteworthy features are improved sleep monitoring, latest S8 chipset, enhanced Workout app, crack-resistant display, fall detection, heart rate zones, and customized workout and race routes. New customers will get 3 months of Fitness+ subscription.

Apple Watch Series 8 South Africa Price

The Apple Watch Series 8 starting price will be about R 5200 when it’s here. As for the Apple Watch Series 8 release date South Africa, it should be available sometime after September 16, 2022.
