In addition to the new iPhone 14, Apple has shown three different watches simultaneously for the first time in history. Let’s look at them one by one.

Apple Watch Series 8 with temperature monitoring and auto accident detection

When you sleep, Apple Watch Series 8 is supposed to automatically measure the temperature at five-second intervals. The producer declares that this function will be appreciated primarily by women. The watch’s algorithms are supposed to use the collected data for a more detailed analysis of the menstrual cycle and for estimating the date of the last ovulation. The history of the cycle can be shared with the doctor.

Apple Watch Series 8 was also armed with a more accurate accelerometer and gyroscope. These – in combination with other sensors – are to detect car accidents. When the watch detects a bump, it will automatically dial an emergency number and share the location with selected contacts.
