If you are concerned about whether or not this upcoming smartwatch from Apple will feature a redesign, we have all the answers lined up for you.
Design – Rumors and News
There are a lot of rumors floating on the internet concerning the design of the upcoming Apple Watch 8. And, surprisingly enough, some of the most potent rumors suggest that the Apple Watch 8 is going to come out with a flat-edged design. However, this rumor is not likely true.
Even with the Pro model, which is expected to come with a more rugged design, rumors suggest that it will come out with more rounded edges.
Also, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg has clarified that the Apple Watch Series 8 won’t have a circular display like the rumors suggest it would.
The reports surrounding the Pro version of the Apple Watch 8 surfaced when Bloomberg reported on it. And, the rumors suggest that the Pro version will be an extra tough and durable option for the standard Apple Watch 8.
Another quite prevalent design news is the possibility of the addition of new colors to the bands and the dial. Some leaks reported that one of the new colors in the line-up could very well be light green.
Features – Rumors and News
Although the current reports suggest that the Apple Watch 8 will most likely not feature a redesign, we can’t rule out the possibility of some outstanding features in the upcoming models.
One of the most unique features that users can expect with the upcoming Apple Watch 8 is the blood sugar sensor. Also, the battery life in this version will experience a boost. Some reports suggest that it might come with a blood pressure monitoring unit too.
Seasoned Apple leaker Ming-Chi Kuo recently reported that the Apple Watch Series 8 will also likely come out with body temperature monitoring, making it the first of its kind.
The same feature was expected to be available in the Apple Watch Series 7 as well but the algorithm restrictions prevented it from having the same.
