We’ve spent the last week and a half testing the new Apple Watch Series 8 to determine if it’s worth upgrading. By all accounts, the Series 8 is a pretty small change. There are some notable improvements here, like the addition of a temperature sensor and automobile crash detection by Apple, as well as watchOS 9. But other than that, everyone watching Series 7 will immediately recognize this change.

The $399 price tag, colour selections, and design remain the same. If your Apple Watch is more than three or four years old, you’ll appreciate what the Series 8 has. However, this watch isn’t for everyone.

Review

Although the $399 Apple Watch Series 8 resembles its predecessor perfectly, it delivers some vital health and safety enhancements that were not included in the previous iteration. The most significant improvement is the dual-sensor design’s ability to monitor and track variations in body temperature while you sleep.

Series 8 can calculate the last time you had ovulation if you have a menstrual cycle using data from your body temperature. Additionally, the watch can detect if you’ve been in a car accident and will automatically call for assistance.

With these advancements, the Apple Watch Series 8 is still the best iPhone-compatible smartwatch, plus an already unparalleled user experience and app variety that’s been improved by watchOS 9.

Some people might be disappointed by how identical the Apple Watch Series 8 feels and looks to the Series 7, but Apple has almost wholly nailed its smartwatch formula, so there’s no reason to change what’s working.

All your existing bands will fit the Series 8’s 41mm and 45mm case sizes, regardless of the model they were made for. Even the three colours they ship in, midnight, starlight, and silver, are the same. There are a few stainless steel variants, a large selection of bands, and an upgrade option to a watch with cellular connectivity so you can leave your iPhone at home.

Additionally, all of the Series 8 models’ screens are identical and almost reach their rounded corners. Additionally, you receive the same level of toughness as the Series 7 thanks to a screen resistant to cracks, IP6X dust resistance, and WR50 water resistance (meaning it can survive up to 50 meters underwater). Although it isn’t as robust as the new Apple Watch Ultra, it is still adequate for daily use.
