Apple Watch Series 8 Launches in Nepal: Discover New Features
Apple has introduced its latest wearable, the Apple Watch Series 8, in Nepal. Packed with innovative features and cutting-edge technology, the Series 8 aims to enhance the user experience and provide advanced health monitoring capabilities. One of the standout features of this new smartwatch is its temperature-sensing capabilities, along with crash detection, making it a compelling choice for tech enthusiasts and fitness enthusiasts alike. Let’s delve into the details of the Apple Watch Series 8 and explore its exciting features.
Design and Display
The Apple Watch Series 8 inherits the sleek design and display of its predecessor, the Series 7. Available in two sizes—41mm and 45mm—the watch features a stylish and durable build with WR50 water resistance and IP6X dust resistance. The always-on Retina LTPO OLED display offers impressive visuals and is slightly curved, setting it apart from the Apple Watch Ultra’s flat display.
One of the key highlights of the Apple Watch Series 8 is its temperature-sensing capabilities. Equipped with two sensors, including one on the back of the watch and another under the display, the watch can accurately measure body temperature. This feature allows users to monitor their temperature trends, providing valuable insights into their overall health and well-being. Additionally, the watch can provide retrospective ovulation estimates and period predictions for women who menstruate, aiding in fertility tracking and reproductive health.
Another noteworthy addition to the Apple Watch Series 8 is its crash detection feature. With advanced high-g accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, along with a barometer, microphone, and GPS, the watch can detect severe car crashes. In the event of an accident, the watch can automatically alert emergency contacts with the device’s location if the user remains unresponsive for more than 10 seconds. This feature adds an extra layer of safety and peace of mind for users, especially during outdoor activities or commutes.
Health and fitness tracking
The Apple Watch Series 8 continues to offer comprehensive health and fitness tracking features. It includes heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen level measurement (SpO2), and sleep tracking capabilities. Users can gain insights into their overall health, track their fitness goals, and receive personalized activity recommendations. However, it’s worth noting that the electrocardiogram (ECG) feature remains unavailable in Nepal.
Hardware and software
Under the hood, the Apple Watch Series 8 is powered by the S8 SiP (System in Package). While the CPU performance remains similar to previous models, the watch offers 32GB of internal storage, allowing ample space for apps, music, and data. The watch runs on watchOS 9, which introduces various new features, including a redesigned Compass app, enhanced workout views, and improved sleep tracking.
Connectivity and battery life
The Apple Watch Series 8 features Bluetooth 5.3 and dual-band Wi-Fi 4 support for seamless connectivity. Apple claims that the watch’s battery can last up to 18 hours on a single charge. The watch also offers a Low Power Mode, which extends battery life by temporarily disabling or limiting select sensors and features.
Price and Availability
The Apple Watch Series 8 is available in Nepal with a price tag of Rs. 75,500 for the 41mm GPS variant and Rs. 79,500 for the 45mm GPS variant. Tech enthusiasts can purchase the Apple Watch Series 8 from authorized retailers such as EvoStore and Oliz Store.
With the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8 in Nepal, Apple continues to push the boundaries of wearable technology. The inclusion of temperature sensors and crash detection features further enhances the watch’s capabilities and solidifies its position as a leading smartwatch in the market. Whether you’re tracking your fitness goals or prioritizing your health, the Apple Watch Series 8 offers a range of features to help you stay connected, safe, and informed throughout your daily life.
