Apple has introduced the new version of its smartwatch called Apple Watch Series 8. It looks like last year’s Series 7 and has a case with rounded edges.
Also on board is a new temperature sensor that records body temperature.
Temperature sensor for women’s health
According to Apple, the sensor will specialize in women’s health and help them better track their periods. The watch uses an algorithm to determine when a woman has her fertile days.
The sensor is permanently active and measures the temperature every 5 seconds. The deviation should be very small.
Car accident detection
A new feature of the Apple Watch Series 8 is accident detection (“Crash Detection”). WatchOS 9, in combination with the smartwatch’s sensors, is designed to detect whether its wearer has had a car accident. The Series 8 has two new sensors for this: a 3-axis gyroscope and a “High-G-Force” accelerometer. If desired, the watch then makes an emergency call including GPS data and informs the emergency contacts. The whole thing is similar to the fall detection that is already available in previous models.
This message will be updated throughout the evening.
