We're as yet many months away from the send off of the Apple Watch Series 8, yet we're now hearing insights regarding Apple's next-generation wrist-worn gadget.

This guide totals all that we know about the Apple Watch Series 8 up to this point based on rumors. Note that it's still early in the item cycle, so these elements presently can't seem to be confirmed.

Design and Size Options

Little is known about the design of the Apple Watch Series 8 now, however it could look like the Apple Watch Series 7 as Apple just increased the display size with the Series 7 models and Apple typically stays with a display size for a couple of years.
Display analyst Ross Young has suggested the Apple Watch Series 8 could come in three sizes rather than two, with Apple adding a bigger size that would join the 41 and 45mm size choices.

Prior to the release of the ‌Apple Watch Series 7‌, multiple rumors suggested Apple was chipping away at a revived design with flat edges like the flat edges of the iPhone 13 and iPad Pro, but that didn't end up happening

Given the number of rumors that confirmed Apple was planning such a design, it could still be happening, but for the Series 8 rather than the Series 7.

Health Features

To the Wall Street Journal and other sources, Apple is developing several new health features for future Apple Watch models. These include blood-pressure monitoring, a thermometer for fertility and sleep tracking, sleep apnea detection, and diabetes detection. 

Some of these features could be presented in the Apple Watch Series 8, but it isn't clear assuming that these sensors are prepared so Apple could likewise hold the usefulness until a later date.

Temperature Sensor

A body temperature sensor could be added to the Apple Watch when 2022, the temperature sensor would initially be utilized for fruitfulness planning. In future versions of the Apple Watch, it very well may be utilized to determine assuming a client has a higher than ordinary body temperature, but showing an actual measurement is improbable.

Sleep Apnea Detection

Apple is aiming to use the existing blood oxygen sensor to detect sleep apnea, but there are issues with taking frequent readings without significantly impacting battery life.

Apple Watch Features

Blood Glucose Monitoring

Apple is rumored to have a team of biomedical engineers working on a method for non-invasively monitoring blood glucose levels using optical sensors, technology that could potentially make its way into the Apple Watch at some point in the future. Such a feature would make diabetes management much easier because it would not require puncturing the skin.
Blood glucose monitoring has been a component that Apple has been working on for a really long time, in light of rumors, but it is a significant wellbeing highlight that would almost certainly require guideline

DigiTimes claims that Apple is working on short wavelength infrared sensors, which could allow the Apple Watch Series 8 to monitor blood glucose by measuring the amount of sugar in the blood. DigiTimes isn't always the most reliable source, and Bloomberg says that blood glucose monitoring is still many years away.

Blood Pressure Measurements

Blood pressure monitoring technology won't be ready until 2024 at the earliest, and a launch could slip to 2025. Apple is working on an updated sensor and accompanying software that would be able to detect high blood pressure, but in testing, it has not been accurate.

Apple is testing pulse monitoring with representatives. The element won't provide explicit systolic and diastolic readings, but will instead caution Apple watch clients that they might have hypertension that ought to be investigated further.

Satellite Connectivity

In the future, Apple plans to bring satellite availability to the Apple Watch, which will consider crisis texting and SOS reaction features right on the wrist. Satellite availability is coming to the ‌iPhone 14‌, and later, it will expand to the Apple Watch.
