Design and durability
Beautiful. And made to stay that way.
Smooth and seamless. The edge of design. 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.
Always-On Retina display.
Take it all in. Get it all done. 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.
Tougher than tough.
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.
- Crack Resistant - Designed to be strong.
- Dust Resistant - IP6X certification
- Water Resistant - Swimproof with WR50 water resistance
Health - Here’s to a healthier you.
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.
Introducing temperature sensing.
Understand your cycle like never before. 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.
An easier way to understand when you likely ovulated.
Period predictions. Less of a question mark.
Get improved period predictions with wrist temperature data. And now you can receive notifications if your logged cycle data shows a possible cycle deviation, like irregular or prolonged periods. You can share your cycle history with your healthcare provider for more informed conversations.
Your Cycle Tracking data stays on your device and is encrypted when your phone is locked with a passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID.
The Sleep app doesn’t just keep track of your time asleep. It shows you how much time you spent in REM, Core, or Deep sleep, as well as when you might have woken up.
Take an ECG at any time.
With the ECG app, Apple Watch Series 8 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single‑lead electrocardiogram.6
Measure your blood oxygen.
It’s a breathtaking innovation. The remarkable sensor and app in Apple Watch Series 8 allow you to take on‑demand readings of your blood oxygen as well as background readings, day and night.
Makes taking your meds and vitamins like clockwork.
The Medications app helps you discreetly and conveniently keep track of your medications, vitamins, and supplements. And lets you easily log them from Apple Watch.
Innovation we hope you’ll never need.
Introducing Crash Detection.
Help on automatic. 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, provide dispatchers with your location, 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.
256 Gs High g-force accelerometer detects up to 256 Gs of impact.
1M Developed from over 1 million hours of real-world driving and crash data.
Apple Watch Series 8 can detect if you’ve taken a hard fall and connect you with emergency services if you’re immobile. And it’s optimized when you are using the Workout app.
Press and hold the side button and Apple Watch can call local emergency services to share your location.
So much to move you.
