Apple Watch Series 8 2022 Release Date, Price, Features, and Review

Apple Watch Series 8 2022 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, with thinner bezels for a larger display, better always-on display performance, dust resistance, and more, but it’s not a complete redesign of the Apple Watch. A lot of speculation arose even before the debut. Apple Watch Series 8 could feature more than we expect.

Here is everything we know about the new Apple Watch 2022.

Apple Watch Series 8 2022 Review

Apple Watch Series 8 is still a few months away, but general speculation about design, specs, features, pricing and release date has begun. Here is everything you need to know about Apple’s next wrist-worn device.


Apple has not made too many changes to the Apple Watch’s core design since its launching. The design has remained visually unchanged, only the iconic squircle has been customized from the last model to sport a larger display on a larger chassis.

However, on the web, one from LeaksApplePro on Twitter, there are rumors that the Apple Watch 8 won’t differ much from the Series 7 in design, and will have little or no difference. The only noticeable change is the set of parallel openings rather than just one.


Renowned display analyst Ross Young suggests that the Apple Watch Series 8 will come in three sizes instead of the regular two. The new third size is the larger one, with 41mm and 45mm size variants.


Apple Watch Series 8 will likely bring performance gains with a faster SoC as there were no changes to its predecessor. It still uses a Retina LTPO OLED with 1000 nits peak brightness and 326 PPI.

Apple Watch Series 8 2022 Features

The next Apple smartwatch is also expected to run on WatchOS 8 or 8.5 if available at launch. According to rumors, Apple is reportedly working on several new health features for its upcoming smartwatch.

These upcoming features include blood pressure monitoring, thermometers for fertility and sleep tracking, sleep apnea detection, and diabetes detection (blood sugar monitoring). However, we don’t know how many of these will be available on the Watch 8.

Apple is also developing car crash detection for the Apple Watch, available this year. It uses sensors such as accelerometers to detect car accidents and then reports them to emergency contacts. It will most likely be on the Apple Watch Series 8.

There are also reports that Apple will add a temperature sensor to the Apple Watch this year, but Bloomberg is stating that the company has now scrapped the plan. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has suggested that the Apple Watch 8 will get a major “activity tracking” update.

Apple has filed patents for several notable technologies that could be used in the Apple Watch Series 8. However, it is unclear whether they will be used in Series 8 or not.

The first is a patent for password-free biometric authentication that identifies the wearer’s skin pattern for identification and unlocks the device.

Another patent is for a self-tightening Apple watch band that can be adjusted according to the situation. When you engage in strenuous activities, such as running or exercising, they are tightened to take accurate heart readings. However, when you relax later, it automatically loosens up.

There is another patent that adds an LED indicator to the Apple Watch band to visualize the progress of an activity or task. The company also holds a patent for a sensor for a watch that can monitor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and has one more patent for an under-display camera for a smartwatch.
