Apple Watch Series 8: Rumours and Expectations

1. Design and Display

Apple is known for its sleek and elegant design, but the company may be shaking things up with its new Apple Watch Series 8. Rumors are swirling that the Series 8 will have a more rugged design, perfect for extreme sports enthusiasts.

One of the most talked-about AW 8 features is the rumored scratch-resistant display. Apple has used sapphire crystal for its Apple Watch displays in the past, but switching to a more durable material would help extend the watch’s life.

Another rumor is that the Apple Watch Series 8 will be available in three different sizes: 38, 42, and 44mm. This would give consumers more choices when it comes to finding a watch that fits their wrist size.

2. Body Temperature

A body temperature monitoring sensor may be included in the Series 8 Apple Watch. It was an expected feature in the Apple Watch Series 7(AW 7), and however, it was not included in that model.

This time, it is said that the sensor will be initially used to measure body temperature changes associated with the menstrual cycle and fertility in women.

However, it may not be fully functional like Fitbit Sense or Whoop 4.0. This means that the Apple Watch Series 8 may not be able to monitor skin temperature all day long.

3. Car Crash Detection

The Series 8 may also feature a car crash detection system. This would be a lifesaving feature, as it would be able to automatically call emergency services if it detects that the user has been in a serious accident.

Like Apple Watch’s fall detection feature, the Car Crash Feature will use the watch’s accelerometer and gyroscope to detect when a user has been in a high-impact collision.

We strongly believe that this feature will be included in the upcoming Apple Watch as Apple gives more priority to its safety features.

4. Blood Sugar Monitoring

There have been rumors that Series 8 will be able to monitor blood sugar levels. It is said that Series 8 will use a non-invasive optical sensor to measure blood sugar levels. This would be a huge blessing for people with diabetes, as it would allow them to monitor their blood sugar levels without having to prick their fingers.

There are already rumors circulating that Taiwan Asia Semiconductor is working on a technology to make this possible. So, we can expect that Series 8 will be able to monitor blood sugar levels.

Further, other reports suggest that Apple has already filed a patent for this feature, which further confirms that it is likely to be included in the upcoming Series 8.

5. Improved Sleep Apnea Detection

According to recent leaks and rumors, Apple is planning to use the existing blood oxygen sensor(SpO2) in the Apple Watch 8 to detect sleep apnea. However, the company is facing battery life issues with the current sensor, limiting its ability to track sleep apnea accurately.

As a result, Apple is reportedly working to fix these issues to improve battery life and accuracy in Apple Watch Series 8. This could be a game-changer for those who suffer from sleep apnea, as it would allow them to track their condition more efficiently and effectively.

6. Improved Atrial Fibrillation Detection

According to Bloomberg, in Apple Watch Series 8, Apple is expanding its atrial fibrillation detection(AFib) capabilities to include the calculation of “burden.”

The burden is a measure of how often a person has atrial fibrillation over a set period of time. Doctors can use this information to assess the severity of a patient’s condition and make treatment decisions.

The expansion of atrial fibrillation detection in AW 8 is just one of the many new features that Apple is bringing to its smartwatch platform. Apple seems to be one step closer to making the Apple Watch 8 a truly indispensable health device with each new release.

7. Improved Battery Life

A most common complaint about the Apple Watch is its short battery life. The Apple Watch Series 7 came with a fast charging feature, but the overall battery life did not improve.

We hope that Apple Watch Series 8 comes with better battery life so that we can use it for more extended periods of time without having to worry about charging it so frequently.

8. A Better/New Processor

The AW7 has a similar processor to that of its predecessor, the Series 6. We expect Apple to upgrade to the fastest processor in Series 8 to make it more powerful and energy-efficient.

This would allow the Apple Watch to run more demanding apps and tasks while maintaining good battery life.

9. Release Date

There is no official word on when the Apple Watch Series 8 will be released. However, Apple products are released in September, so we can expect Series 8 to be launched in September 2022, along with Apple Watch SE2 and iPhone 14.

10. Blood Pressure Monitoring

Blood Pressure Monitoring is another feature we want to see in the Apple Watches. However, according to the rumors, it may not be available on the AW 8.

Apple needs to include blood pressure into the watches as its rival such as Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 3, already has this feature.

Further, the Google-owned Fitbit is at the final stage of implementing this feature in its future smartwatches. So, it is likely that Apple will also include this health monitoring feature in the upcoming Series 9 or 10.


The long-awaited Apple Watch Series 8 is Rumored to bring a host of new features and improvements. These include a blood sugar monitoring sensor, improved sleep apnea detection, better battery life, and a new processor. The release date is still unconfirmed, but we can expect it to launch in September 2022.
