Apple Watch Series 8: what do we expect from the new generation?

Apple Watch Series 8: ¿qué esperamos de la nueva generación?

The debut of the Apple Watch Series 8 is still months away, which will presumably take place sometime in September or October. However, and as with everything that has to do with Apple, advances and rumors do not know dates. It’s always a good time to try and find out what Cupertino is working on. And although undoubtedly the leading role is usually for the iPhone, the entire Apple catalog has a place when it comes to theorizing.

With respect to the Apple Watch Series 8, some rumors have already been spread, quite interesting indeed, both those related to what to expect from the main model, as well as some versions that could come from your hand. Obviously, before going over these rumours, it’s important to remember that, They are speculations without any official endorsement by the company. And, therefore, you have to take them with due reservations, and don’t be surprised if, as the weeks and months go by, you find totally contradictory theories.

That said, we begin to dissect what we can expect from the Apple Watch Series 8, and how could it be otherwise, the protagonists of most of the rumors so far have been the new sensors that the watch could incorporate, as well as the metrics they would offer. And on this point, the one who affirmed that the great novelty of the Apple smartwatch in this generation would be a thermometer.

However, and according to analyst Mark Gurman, andThis sensor could be delayed a year, being then reserved for the Series 9. This, in the absence of any not too likely surprise, would mean that as in the case of the Series 7, the Apple Watch Series 8 does not include new sensors, and that in this case it is based on improvements in its performance and, of course, in the development of new functions based on the elements that the watch already has since the 6 series, presented in 2020.

Far beyond the Apple Watch Series 8, the 9 and even the 10, they would find other advanced sensors you’ve been talking about for a while, but whose technical complexity, and possibly the high cost of its implementation, will delay its arrival until, at least, the second half of this decade. Personally, although fortunately in my case I don’t need it, I think the most interesting is the one that will be able to measure blood glucose levels. That feature can make a huge difference to many people.

On the other hand, there have also been some rumors that speak of different versions of the Apple Watch Series 8, and most theories point to ab, and that therefore it could compete with other smartwatch models designed specifically for this purpose and that, therefore, offer more security against shocks and conditions, if not extreme, yes of course tougher than those faced by general purpose watches.

The other rumor, also recurrent, is that A new entry-level Apple Watch would also come from the hand of the Apple Watch Series 8. Currently, the role is fulfilled by the Series 3, whose price is 219 euros and we must remember that it is already a little over four years old, since it was presented in September 2017. A new, more up-to-date entry-level model, which has at least some of the sensors and features that have debuted on the platform from 2017 to now.
