So when is it going to be released?
Based on Apple’s usual release schedule we think the Apple Watch 8 should be released in September 2022. Things will surely be heating up with Samsung's flagship Galaxy Watch 5 expected to be released at the same time.
Early rumours for Apple Watch 8
While Apple hasn’t announced any official news, these are the rumours of new features we’ve collated so far:
- New body temperatures sensors and improved activity tracking,
- A faster chipset for better performance and battery life
- An additional size to the 41mm and 45mm, flatter edges and smaller bezels.
- The Apple Watch 7 launched some sporty new coloured bands including Nectarine Solo Loop and Lemon Zest Solo Loop so we think the Apple Watch 8 will follow suit.
In saying that, we expect the 41mm and 45mm size options to remain and pair well with our existing straps and adaptors. Check out our favorites Apple Watch 7 Nylon and Silicone straps:
