What we know and what I expect from the Apple Watch Series 8 (opinion).

For my part you will always see me say wonderful things about the Apple Watch. I find it one of the best devices on the market today. Within its category I don’t think there is one that comes close. Within all Apple devices, I have my serious doubts about whether to give it the first or second position. I doubt with the iMac. But they are so different and focused on such different things that they could share that pole position. The fact is that, before long, we will have Apple Watch Series 8 and this is what we have so far and what I expect from this new model.

Rumors about the Apple Watch Series 8

Although there is still a lot left, for the new Series 8 of the Apple watch to come to the fore, we already have a few rumors on the table, which can give us an idea of ​​what we can see in the new model:

What we know and what I expect from the Apple Watch Series 8 (opinion)
  • More resistant and aimed at athletes who use the watch in which more power is needed. Resistance not only to blows but also to water.
  • New health features. This is one of the reasons why I consider the Apple Watch one of the best devices from Apple. The functions to take care of ourselves and take care of the most precious thing we have, health, is priceless. How many news have we read that the Apple Watch has saved this or this life. Is incredible. Rumor has it that we could see blood pressure measurement, a thermometer for fertility and sleep tracking, sleep apnea screening, and diabetes screening.
  • Activity tracking improvements
  • Being a new model, it will have a faster and newer chip.
  • Now almost the best. Three new models. An Apple Watch Series 8 with all those features. An Apple Watch SE more restrained in features but just as good and a new model for athletes. let Garmin or Polar tremble.

What do I expect from the new Apple Watch in 2022?

All the rumors we just read are very good, but is it what we want? or we would really like to have other features.

Seeing how the Apple Watch Series 7 has developed, it is a watch that I like a lot. It is true that I still have the Series 6, because although the 7 has more screen, it is not something that has attracted me enough to change the model. It must also be recognized that you cannot be changing each model year. By power you can, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

On the other hand, certain functions of those previously rumored, if they would tip the balance so that I change and acquire the Series 8. For example, if it brings us those new functions in Health, with new sensors, of course it is something that I would love to have. That does not have to make the watch bulkier or heavier. Therein lies the grace of the Apple Watch.

One of the functions that I would love to see in this new model is the ability to detect traffic accidents and that it could connect with the emergency services to notify them. In these circumstances, time is short and all precaution is little.

Now, what would really be incredible, which would completely break the market. What would be a purchase stimulus for all doubters, is that the battery lasted at least three days. Why? How are we going to have a serious monitoring of, for example, night rest, if we have it on the charger, even for two hours? If I leave it overnight, it doesn’t reach me at noon… A disaster in this field.

What are the most advanced athletes, coaches and users waiting for in these battles of the Apple Watch?

The watch has the capacity that with so much sensor, it is capable of monitoring different aspects of the sport. However, for moderate users or those who do not want complex metrics, the Apple Watch can do a “fix”. But for those who are athletes and who like to analyze data and consumption, the Apple Watch is an apprentice.

What we know and what I expect from the Apple Watch Series 8 (opinion)

The American company, I doubt that it wants to get into this area. Although rumors indicate that there may be a sports Apple Watch Series 8 and I am not referring to Nike, I doubt that it will be capable of measuring or establishing patterns or training like a Garmin or Polar. But it can break the market, because it is that segment of sports watches, it may be the one that provides the most indicators without being high-end and this, together with the fact that it can also be used at a wedding, for example, gives a lot of play.


I wish the rumors about an Apple Watch Series 8 with all those new features came true. But I settle for a longer lasting battery.

If the fact of having a watch for athletes finally comes true, I prefer that they put all the meat on the grill and not launch a more robust version of only a standard Apple Watch.
