Apple Watch Series 8, Watch SE and Watch Ultra : Apple Event September 2022
On 7th September 2022, we witnessed the Apple event which was focused on Apple Watch, iPhone, and AirPods Pro. There were many rumors about what to be expected from this September Apple event, but it is always exciting to hear from Official Apple guys about their products. So without further delay, let’s get started.
Apple Watch is the most used SmartWatch worldwide. It’s the Number One selling SmartWatch in the world & is holding this title since 2014, till date. Each year Apple Watch sets a new standard for what a SmartWatch should be, and this year is no exception. At the Apple Event in September 2022, Apple released three Smart Watches for the first time,
- Apple Watch Series 8
- Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen
- Apple Watch Ultra
Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen are upgraded versions of their previous generations with new features and enhancements. But the Apple Watch Ultra is one of its kind, taking Smart Watch to the next level. Let’s check it out in more detail.
Apple Watch Series 8
Apple Watch Series 8 features a big, brilliant Always On display. Narrow borders push the screen right to the edge, resulting in an elegant integration with the curvature of the case. It is available in 45 mm or 41 mm case size with an edge-to-edge display offering up to 1000 nits of brightness.
The bright Always On screen makes detailed watch faces look stunning and easy to read, even when your wrist is down. The large display accommodates all your favorite complications and makes tapping, typing, and swiping a snap.
The same innovations used to create the beautiful, edge-to-edge, Always On display also help make it incredibly durable. A thick front crystal, robust geometry, and flat base make it resistant to cracking. It is IP6X certified for dust resistance and Swimproof with WR50 water resistance.
The more informed you are about your health, the more empowered you are to affect it. Advanced health sensors in Apple Watch Series 8 provide insights to help you better understand your health. And now with its all-new temperature sensor, it takes a new leap in monitoring Woman’s health. Apple Watch Series 8 has an innovative new sensor that tracks your temperature while you sleep, so you can see changes over time. Cycle Tracking uses this data to provide a retrospective estimate of when you likely ovulated, which can be helpful for family planning. When combined with your heart rate and logged cycle data, you’ll get a detailed view of your menstrual cycle.
Your Cycle Tracking data stays on your device and is encrypted when your phone is locked with a passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID.
Apart from this, it continues to have all the great features like ECG, Blood Oxygen Level, Sleep Tracking, Heart Rate Monitor, Fall detection, etc. from its previous generation. And now with the Low power mode, you can get up to 36 hours of battery life from your Apple Watch. This low power mode keeps all vital features like fall detection etc. on while limiting some background activities, like always On Display, to give it that extra battery life.
In addition, this year Apple has introduced a great new feature, Crash Detection.
For the first time, Apple Watch Series 8 is able to detect if you’re in a severe car crash. When a crash is detected, Crash Detection can automatically connect you with emergency services and notify your emergency contacts. Crash Detection uses the combined power of an improved 3-axis gyroscope and a new g-force accelerometer that has the highest dynamic range in any smartwatch. It also uses a microphone, barometer, GPS, and an advanced sensor-fusion algorithm trained on over 1 million hours of real-world driving and crash data to detect if you’re in a severe crash. High g-force accelerometer detects up to 256 Gs of impact. As per Apple, this all-new Crash Detection feature is developed from over 1 million hours of real-world crash and driving data.
