Apple Watch (Series 8)


The Apple Special Event of September 2022 saw the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 8 (successor to the Series 7), a second generation of the Apple Watch SE and a new Apple Watch Ultra, all of which were available for pre-ordering and shipping that same month. The launch event itself was a pre-recorded and visually stunning presentation with a stellar theme, and was fronted by Tim Cook (Apple’s CEO). The presentation may have been recorded, but Tim Cook was live on stage, and there was a live and enthusiastic audience present – quite a departure from the restrictions of the previous couple of years. As well as the Watches, there was a suite of iPhone 14 variants too, so there was plenty of scope for Apple fans everywhere.

The Apple Watch Series 8 was still available in the same two screen sizes (41 and 45 mm) as the Series 7, but was claimed to be more durable than the older model, being swim-proof and IP6X dust resistant. The new version also had an extended battery life mode, which could be used to stretch out the battery life from 18 to a very creditable 36 hours. The Series 8 was fitted with an innovative temperature sensor that was accurate enough to not only monitor physical health, but also to track ovulation cycles. Other additions included higher precision accelerometers and gyroscopes, which were capable of detecting if the wearer had been involved in a major fall or vehicle collision, and could be set to call emergency services automatically. The Apple Watch Series 8 came in a revised colour range, depending on the case material (aluminium or steel), with the older green, titanium and blue variants being discontinued.

It’s hard to underestimate how convenient it is to wear a smart watch – when you have spent some time with your Apple Watch Series 8, you will probably wonder how you got on without it. As well as telling the time and enabling you to easily handle calls, texts, messages and alerts, it can also be the equivalent of a personal trainer and medic rolled into one. If you play sports and are keen to either get fit or move on to a higher level of fitness, it can advise, encourage and monitor your progress. If you’re less keen on sporting activities, or have health concerns, it can monitor and report on your heart rate, blood oxygen level and many other physical aspects that you need to be aware of day to day. The emergency SOS function may even save your life if you are involved in a major incident. All in all, the Apple Watch Series 8 is the ideal companion for anyone and everyone.

The downside of wearable devices though is that they are prone to damage – the Apple Watch Series 8 is said to be more durable than its predecessors, as well as being swim-proof and dust resistant, but it’s still a complex piece of technology that you wear every day. If something goes wrong with your Apple Watch, it’s no use dropping it in to a local jewellery repair store for help and advice, they may not have the expertise, the tools or the materials to put right any problems you may have encountered. What you need is the capable hands of an iTechnician – someone who understands the tech on your wrist, and is trained and equipped to make the appropriate repairs quickly and affordably. Call out an iTech when your Apple Watch needs a repair or simply some TLC, or call in to your local repair centre – you can find them all across the UK. You are never too far away from an expert Apple Watch technician.
