Read our Apple Watch Series 8 review and you’ll see why it’s so popular. Apple took everything people loved so much about the previous-generation Series 7 model, and made it better.
People love how well the Apple Watch Series 8 integrates with Apple’s iPhones. From notifications and complications to dedicated watchOS apps, it’s so great to be able to keep your phone in your pocket. Or, you can get a cellular Apple Watch model and you don’t even need to carry your phone with you at all if you don’t want.
In terms of features, Apple Watch Series 8 highlights include a new temperature sensor that enhances sleep monitoring and cycle tracking, plus a blood oxygen sensor. You also get a built-in ECG feature in addition to standard heart rate monitoring.
I’m personally a big fan of the smaller bezels around the display. I also love safety features like Emergency SOS and Fall Detection, as well as the new Backtrack feature in the Apple Watch’s redesigned compass app.
With a starting price of $399, it’s hard to argue that the Apple Watch Series 8 is anything other than a great value. It has completely changed the way I use my iPhone.
If any of our readers needed an extra push, however, the current sale taking place at Best Buy should be just what the doctor ordered.
