Apple Watch 8 — everything we know so far

The Apple Watch 8 is expected to arrive this fall. As we mentioned in our Apple Watch 7 review, while we’re impressed with Apple’s latest smartwatch, some features are still lacking.

Apple has announced a new version of its best smartwatch every year since the original was released. Therefore, the company will likely follow the Apple Watch 7. We haven’t seen any major leaks like the iPhone 14, but rumors that didn’t happen with the latest model might be aimed at Apple. 8. watch.

As far as we know, Apple is still planning the flat-out redesign that many have been waiting for. It could also bring a new health sensor to the Apple Watch 8, since the hardware of the Apple Watch 7 and Apple Watch 6 doesn’t advertise much in terms of health. Meanwhile, watchOS 8 welcomes more exercise types and a Mindfulness app for daily reflection.

If you’re wondering what’s to come, these early Apple Watch 8 rumors (and watchOS 9 rumors) are worth keeping your radar on. Be sure to bookmark this page for the latest updates on the possible Apple Watch 8 price and release date, expected features and more.

Apple Watch 8 latest rumors and news (updated April 21)

  • What will the Apple Watch 8 body temperature sensor do? Here’s what we know.
  • While blood pressure and blood sugar are still a few years away, the Apple Watch 8 could get a skin temperature reader.
  • There were no new Apple Watches at the last Apple event. Here’s everything Apple didn’t reveal.

We don’t yet know a potential release date for the Apple Watch 8. But based on previous Apple Watch launches, we expect to see the next Apple Watch in September 2022.

Likewise, there is currently no information on the price of the Apple Watch 8. But Apple has maintained the same pricing structure for several years now, so we expect next year’s Apple Watch corresponds to the price of the Apple Watch 7. link.

Apple Watch 8 design

The look of the Apple Watch has barely changed since the first model launched in 2016, but the iconic squirrel has been modified with Apple Watch 7 to accommodate larger screens in a curved body than ever before.

Although it is early for Apple Watch 8 rumors, there are some rumors circulating. The latest is an alleged render image of the Apple Watch. We can’t confirm the legitimacy of this image, but if true, the Apple Watch 8 won’t have a major design change from the Apple Watch 7.

But if the Apple Watch 8 gets upgrades that were previously announced for the Series 7, it could follow the design language of the new straight-edge iPhones. earlier this year. Prosser stuck to the schedule for the big design change, saying his sources may pass on information for a different future Apple Watch – not necessarily the Apple Watch 7.

Another set of images released ahead of the Apple Watch 7 announcement revealed plans for a direct redesign. CAD images allegedly leaked and shared by 91Mobiles have a completely flat design, including the screen.

Could Apple go from its most curved Apple Watch to its most pointed?

Supposed features of the Apple Watch 8

The Apple Watch 8 may not offer new health monitoring sensors compared to the Apple Watch 7, according to Mark Gurman in a January episode of Power Up. Gurman followed up on that report in April, saying blood pressure readings are currently planned for Apple Watch 2024, with blood glucose meters even further down Apple’s smartwatch roadmap.

More recently, Gurman said skin temperature readings can indeed happen with the Apple Watch 8, but not in the way we expected. Skin temperature can be used to inform fertility at first. Perhaps later versions will offer traditional wrist temperature readings.

We suspect the 2022 model will see internal improvements as the Apple Watch introduces Priority Design in the fall with larger Apple Watch 7 sizes. Time will tell us.

Apple Watch Rugged, Apple Watch SE 2

It’s possible the Apple Watch 8 will come with a cheaper Apple Watch SE follow-up, which will be two years old by next September. For a comprehensive guide to everything we know about the mid-range watch, check out our Apple Watch SE 2 guide.

Mark Gurman claims the Apple Watch 8 could launch alongside a new Apple Watch SE and a solid Apple Watch with improved activity tracking and new chips. Compared to the best budget Apple Watch available, we can see the Apple Watch SE 2 starting at $279 with updated features.

There’s also talk of a solid Apple Watch designed to better appeal to outdoor sports enthusiasts. Whether this is one of the best sports watches depends heavily on battery life and GPS capabilities. Strong Apple Watch rumors started before the launch of the Apple Watch 7.

Apple Watch 8: what we want to see

Better battery life: Apple Watch battery life has been rated at 18 hours for several years. Even though the company is adding more tax features like always-on display, you still can’t ignore the daily charge. Perhaps with a larger battery capacity and a more efficient processor, the durability of the Apple Watch 8 will increase compared to previous generation models. Yet, we hope so every year. Even the Apple Watch 7 predicted a huge increase in battery life, but that didn’t happen.

Skin temperature reader: According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is working on a skin temperature sensor found in Fitbit Sense. A Wall Street Journal report is targeting 2022 as a possible destination for this capability, which will require new hardware to monitor temperature on the Apple Watch. The watch’s ability to take temperature is likely to be cited as a fertility planning feature. According to Mark Gurman, this remains a possibility.

Blood glucose meter: Blood glucose measurement for the Apple Watch has been rumored for some time. Speaking of skin temperature readings, the Wall Street Journal report also confirms that Apple wants its smartwatch to help detect or track diabetes. There are already third-party apps that work with an invasive pump, but Apple is reportedly working on non-invasive ways to take blood sugar readings. A recent report from DigiTimes also backed this up, saying that Apple has started working with its suppliers to create short-wavelength infrared sensors that can monitor a user’s blood sugar level.

blood pressure monitor: Like blood sugar monitoring, rumors of blood pressure monitoring for the Apple Watch started a while ago. A moment before the launch of the Apple Watch 7, Apple seemed ready to announce the health sensor, but it didn’t happen. As we can see, Samsung is still struggling to get FDA approval for the blood pressure monitor for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. Apple Watch will not receive blood pressure monitoring until it will not have received the certifications required for the American application. .

microLED display: Rumor has it that the Apple Watch could go from an OLED display to a microLED display. It could deliver a thinner, more power-efficient Apple Watch. MicroLED displays offer better brightness and are not affected by the dimming issues of traditional OLED panels. In other words, the use of micro LED display technology can help increase the lifespan of the Apple Watch, which is only 18 hours with the always-on display.

Touch ID: The current Apple Watch biometric system is quite simple. If you use a passcode, you must enter it each time you wear your Apple Watch. Considering the amount of information your smartwatch can contain, we would like more security. Until the Apple Watch gets a native selfie camera for FaceID, TouchID seems to be the way to go. Perhaps a fingerprint reader could be added to the side button or even under the Apple Watch screen.

Even bigger dimensions: While the Apple Watch 7 has gone from 40mm and 44mm to 41mm and 45mm (as confirmed by the Apple Watch bands listed on Apple’s website), we wish the Apple Watch would come in even larger sizes. The available sizes allow for a miniaturized user experience that’s great for code snippets, but impractical for productivity. Adding a few millimeters to the Apple Watch might not seem like a big change, but it could give the company the option to add things like more powerful microphones and speakers or a more powerful processor.
