5 Secret Features For Your Apple Watch Series 8

With no cosmetic changes, the Apple Watch Series 8 offers the exact same features and functionality as the previous generation gadget.

The casings still come in the 41mm and 45mm size options and include the same rounded edges, slim display borders, sapphire crystal backing, and haptic Digital Crown.

The Series 8 boasts front glass that won’t break, is dust and water resistant to an IP6X
standard, and is WR50 rated. Additionally, it has an Always-On display that lets users always see their watch face and complications. The improved charging puck allows Apple Pay transactions using credit and debit cards saved in the Wallet app and provides the same faster charging speeds as the Series 7 model.

Despite having an S8 chip inside, it functions very identically to the S6 chip from two years ago and does not provide any performance improvements. Now let’s list out some secret features you probably didn’t know about.
