Should You Consider Purchasing Apple Watch Series 8 In 2024?

Apple likely to launch three Apple Watch 8 series models at the September event

We’ll answer this question in three parts.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is the predecessor to the latest Watch Series 9. However, the only differences between the two models are the one-handed Double Tap gesture, a brighter 2,000 nits display, and HomePod integration, with all these features present on the latest model.

These improvements and a faster S9 chip are the only advantages of getting the Series 9, which currently costs over Rs. 40,000. This creates a rift of nearly Rs. 15,000. Hence, if the exclusive features on the latest version don’t matter to you, Series 8 is for you.

Watch Series 8 Should Get Software Updates Until 2027

Given Apple’s history of consistently releasing software updates for its wearables, longevity isn’t an issue with the Series 8. Given the previous record, there’s a good chance that the discounted model will get another three years of updates. In other words, you should get the latest watchOS versions till 2027.

Last but not least, the Watch Series 8 is among the best smartwatch and fitness trackers for its price. There are other cross-compatible models in the segment, but no other wearable is as optimized to work with an iPhone as the Apple Watch. Users can answer hands-free calls, view notifications, reply to WhatsApp messages, measure critical vitals such as blood oxygen and heart rate levels, and track their overall fitness in one device.
