Always-On Retina display …take it all in
It features a big, bright, Always‑On display. Narrow borders push the screen right to the edge, resulting in an elegant integration with the curvature of the case. It makes detailed watch faces look stunning and easy to read, even when your wrist is down. The larger display makes tapping, typing and swiping a snap.
It has an innovative 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. When combined with your heart rate and logged cycle data, you’ll get a detailed view of your menstrual cycle.
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.
We hope you’ll never need this innovation. 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.*
Apple Watch Series 8's blood oxygen sensor incorporates LEDs and photodiodes in the back crystal. You can easily take readings of your blood oxygen, or let the watch capture background readings, day and night, to provide this key indicator of your overall wellness.
Squat, spin, stride, you name it…Apple Watch has a workout for it in the enhanced Workout app. And with Workout Views, you’ll be able to see more advanced metrics at a glance, like Heart Rate Zones and customised intervals to keep you going strong.
It’s incredibly durable. A thick front crystal, robust geometry, and a flat base make it resistant to cracking, and it’s IP6X dust resistant too.
It’s swimproof with WR50 water resistance, down to a depth of 50 metres.
Tap and pay
Just hold the Watch to the checkout reader to make payments via your credit or debit card. No matter how you use it, Apple Pay keeps your financial information completely private and secure.
The handy, built-in GPS measures your workout accurately, so whether you're going for a swim, run or a ride, you can leave your iPhone at home. Distance, speed and pace are all precisely recorded for you, ready for when you get back home to review your route on your iPhone. Additionally, your Apple Watch Series 8 comes with an always-on barometric altimeter, so your wrist-based coach can continuously track your elevation changes in real time.
