Apple today, September 7, as expected, officially introduced the next generation of its smart watches – Watch Series 8. And it turned out that the insiders were right again – the manufacturer did not radically change the design of wearable electronics. Instead, Apple engineers made the screen a little larger than the previous generation, but did not change the interface – instead, the display was made brighter to make it easier to get information from it, plus there were new dials. Of the interesting innovations, a new temperature sensor has appeared that will allow you to track women’s health.

Also, the manufacturer of smartwatches has clearly set its sights on improving user safety – now a new generation of smartwatches can recognize car accidents. For this, two motion sensors are used at once – an improved gyroscope and a new accelerometer. The watch can now detect that a person has been involved in a serious car accident and will automatically notify emergency services and/or an emergency contact for communication. And although the company hopes that the feature will never be needed by the user, it sounds like a really new level in human security. True, the percentage of false positives of this function is interesting – they did not say this at the presentation.

Also, the new generation of watches received support for international roaming (in the case of the version with cellular communication), and the rumor that Apple no longer cooperates with Hermes has been denied. and straps, and a new dial.
