Simply put, we think the Apple Watch 8 is the best smartwatch on the market. With a stylish design, bright display and useful health tracking features, it has pretty much everything you could want out of a smartwatch.
In our Apple Watch 8 review, we were pleased with the suite of upgrades Apple has brought to this generation of the smartwatch. The new skin temperature sensor aids in sleep and health tracking, and the crash detection feature automatically alerts emergency services in the event of a car accident.
The new watchOS 9 update brings a new fitness trakcing update that lets you switch automatically between multisport events, as well as monitoring your heart rate zones throughout a workout. You can now create custom workout types, too.
Best of all, the Apple Watch 8 has improved battery life thanks to low power mode. It lasts around 18 hours on its regular setting, but can extend to up to 36 hours of use with low power mode enabled. Rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 do last longer, but this is still a step in the right direction for the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch 8 is $90 off right now, so make sure to snag this deal before it disappears. For more options, check out our Apple Watch deals coverage.
