Apple’s big September launch is here! The first product unveiled at the event is the brand new Apple Watch Series 8, which sports a larger screen, a temperature sensor, and even the ability to detect a crash.
Thanks to the bigger display, the Series 8 looks quite a bit more modern than its predecessor. Not only is it larger, it is also brighter now with the addition of new watch faces. Aside from that, the new temperature sensor can also help women track their ovulation cycle; very nice.
Also new to the Series 8 is the ability to detect a car crash, which will only be active when you’re…well, driving. This is done in order to conserve battery life. Speaking of which, the Series 8 offers up to 18 hours of battery life, and it can be further extended to 36 hours in low power mode.
Pricing wise, the Apple Watch Series 8 starts at $399 (about RM1,795) for the GPS only model. The cellular version, on the other hand, goes for $499 (approximately RM2,245). No word yet on the Malaysian pricing of the new smartwatch, though we reckon it will be revealed very soon.
