Apple Watch Series 8 will get even better with watchOS 10

Apple’s 2022 smartwatch is not much different from the 2021 model. It packs the same SiP, design, and battery life. The addition of a temperature sensor is the only notable upgrade, which can be used for cycle tracking. There’s also car crash detection, powered by new accelerometer and gyroscope sensors.

With the Apple Watch Series 9 rumored not to pack any dramatic external changes, go for the Apple Watch Series 8 and save your money. And once watchOS 10 lands in September, the smartwatch will only get better with the addition of widgets and redesigned system apps. It will also pack an improved Workouts app, Full new watch faces, Smart Stack for widgets and more.

watchOS 10w will dramatically upgrade your Apple Watch experience, regardless of whether it is the latest model.

Save big on the 2022 Apple Watch

With the Apple Watch Series 8 nearing its first anniversary, its price will fall sooner than later. If nothing else, the wearable should be available for new low prices after Apple’s Wonderlust event on September 12. If you can’t wait until then or just want to grab the watch at a good price, Amazon’s current deal is pretty great as well. You can get selected variants of the 41mm GPS-only Apple Watch Series 8 for $309. And if battery life is a priority, spring for the 45mm model. The latter is available for as low as $339.99, but only in the Product RED casing.

With the Apple Watch Series 9 not expected to pag big upgrades, buying the Apple Watch Series 8 at its heavily discounted price makes a lot more sense.
