Apple Watch Series 8 features
In order to determine if you’ve been in a serious vehicle accident, the new Apple WatchSeries 8 also comes with two new motion sensors. The new smartwatch can also monitor temperature fluctuations as small as 0.1 degrees Celsius. By monitoring your body temperature overnight the device can let you get clues into your ovulation cycle, which it can then utilise to improve the cycle tracking functionality of the watch for women during mensuration.
As we mentioned earlier the new Apple watch comes with a crash detection feature that gets activated while you are driving. This helps it preserve the battery. In addition to this, the watch also comes with cellular roaming now.
Low power mode, which Apple is also implementing, increases the battery life of the watch to 36 hours. When the mode is enabled, the auto-workout tracking and always-on display are disabled, but activity monitoring and crash detection are retained.
