The Apple Watch Series 8, arrives with a new body temperature sensor. The company, however, highlighted that the focus of the feature will be on helping women identify periods of ovulation.

Another novelty is the Accident Detection. Using the motion data, GPS, barometer and microphones, the smart watch will be able to identify serious collisions. After detecting the accident, the Apple Watch will begin a countdown which, if there is no response, will trigger emergency authorities.
