Apple Watch Series 8 and the SE revealed at the apple event
Apple has made many updates to their Apple Watch models, which include new and improved performance, safety features and technology upgrades.
The features in the new Apple Watch series include a large display and an unbreakable crystal.
Apple Watch Series 8 gives you all-day 18 hours of battery life and introduces ECG apps, fall detection, retrospective ovulation estimates, and international roaming while adding temperature sensing capabilities.
The new Apple Watch SE has the core Apple Watch abilities, including a full activity tracker, acceleration notification and emergency message. In addition, it offers a redesigned design at a cheaper price of $249 (US).
Apple Watch now allow for additional facial designs, an enhanced Workout app which includes the first-ever Fib History feature, sleep improvements, medication and dietary management features.
From today, the new Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE are available to order with availability beginning Friday for customers.
“Apple’s motto is ‘think different.’ And the Apple Watch allows its users to be a little bit different,” said Jeff Williams, the chief operating officer of Apple in an interview with Fortune.
“Apple Watch Series 8 reinforces our commitment to new technology, while Apple Watch SE brings advanced features at a new starting price. Powered by watchOS 9, the best smartwatch delivers even more capabilities than before.”
What is Promethean
The menstruating cycle is vital to women and Apple Watch 8 can track this with its new temperature-sensing capabilities designed with the same privacy protections as all other data.
Apple Watch Series 8 takes a different approach to temperature sensing. It utilizes two sensors — one on the back of the watch, closest to the skin and another on the underside, not far from the heart rate sensor.
A wrist sensor on the Apple Watch can offer insight into your sleep health. The sensors sample your wrist temperature every five seconds and measure changes as small as 0.1℃.

All users of Cycle Tracking can now be alerted if their personal cycle history shows a deviation, such as irregular, infrequent, or prolonged periods, and persistent spotting that might point to an underlying issue. iOS 16 and watchOS 9 stress the importance of taking care of oneself.
To detect crashes using the Apple Watch, Apple has developed a smarter and more advanced algorithm, which takes advantage of a new, more powerful gyroscope and accelerometer.
A company conducted two years of research to develop an algorithm that can produce quality content without requiring too many parameters, similar to how human writing.
Using motion data, GPS, and the microphone on iPhone, Crash Detection is able to detect unusual patterns that indicate a severe injury.
The Apple Watch detects a car crash and alerts you with a 10-second countdown. The device will also attempt to contact emergency services if the wearer is unable to respond.
Emergency responders will receive your location, while you and your contact both have the opportunity to help. All this and more is facilitated by Apple Watch’s Crash Detection function.
When a serious car crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on Apple Watch because it is most likely to be closer than your iPhone. The emergency services call interface can be made through your watch if it is within range of the best connection, or else you’ll need to make an emergency call through your phone, which may have some difficulty keeping up.

When the user is lost or exhausted and needs help retracing their steps, Backtrack can detect when they disappear from the normal grid and automatically turn on. It uses GPS data to generate a path showing where the user has been.
Compass Waypoints are quick and convenient for marking a location or point of interest. The Compass Waypoint icon can be tapped to place it and then selecting one then provides its distance from the user.

How Apple Watch can be environmentally friendly
Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE use a minimal impact on the environment, as they have been designed to minimize their environmental impact.
All Apple Watch’s feature 100 percent recycled aluminum, tungsten comes in the Taptic Engine, and all rare earth elements are from recycled materials. Apple has used 100 percent recycled gold in the plating of printed circuit boards on one model on the Apple Watch Series 8 and SE.
Apple has removed all the harmful metals from their commercial products. 94 percent or more of the packaging is not plastic, bringing Apple closer to their goal of removing plastic from their packaging in 2025.
Today, Apple is carbon neutral for corporate operations, and by 2030, plans to be 100 percent carbon neutral across its supply chains and product life cycles.
Apple devices produce zero emissions during their lifecycle, and are the first company to have reached net-zero climate impact across all stages of production.
By using an encrypted system, Apple assures the privacy of sensitive personal information. All that is displayed about a user’s health and fitness data in the Health app when their iPhone is locked using fingerprint recognition, passcode or face-recognition technology is encrypted.
Data backups through iOS and watchOS are encrypted with a key that Apple does not have access to, meaning they cannot read the data on Apple servers.
