Even before the presentation of the Apple Watch Ultra premium smartwatch, the Cupertino-based company introduced the Apple Watch Series 8, saying that it is a modern smartwatch that has become even better.
It’s worth starting with the fact that they don’t differ externally from the Apple Watch Series 7. The watch received a body temperature sensor that can take measurements every 5 seconds and send them to the Health app.
Apple has emphasized that measured body temperature or menstrual cycle data will not be shared with third parties. Apple Watch Series 8 recognizes not only falls, but also car accidents. In this case, the watch can automatically notify the doctor, 911 and saved contacts about the incident. To fix car accidents, Apple has added new sensors to smartwatches.
In addition, it was announced that Apple Watch Series, from Series 4 and later, will support a battery saving mode that will allow you to last longer without recharging.
The main advantage of the Apple Watch Series 8 over the Apple Watch Ultra is the price, which is half as much. The Apple Watch Series 8 is priced starting at $400.
Apple acknowledges a serious problem with the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch Ultra: they turn off the microphone
Apple has acknowledged that some Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra users may experience microphone issues, including when trying to use Siri, making calls, and so on.
Users have reported issues with their Apple Watch microphone becoming unresponsive after a while, causing apps that use the microphone to throw errors and stop working entirely.
In a new memo obtained by MacRumors, Apple says it is aware of a bug affecting users, specifically that customers may experience issues where Siri is unable to hear them, record voice memos, and make phone calls. The message “Measurement Suspended” may also appear in the Noise app.
Apple says that restarting the Apple Watch may temporarily fix the issue and suggests that the issue is not hardware related. Apple also added that customers should stay tuned for watchOS updates, indicating that a fix may be released soon.
Some Apple Watch Ultra owners complain about the “jelly screen” like the iPad mini
Some Apple Watch Ultra owners have begun to complain about the “jelly screen” that other Apple watches don’t have.
At least a few of these users have already been found on the Reddit forums, but it is not yet clear how massive the problem is and whether it exists at all, or whether it only seems to watch owners.
The latest iPad mini has this issue, and Apple acknowledges the fact but denies it’s a problem. The company explains that this is a feature of the LCD screen, which updates line by line. However, the Watch Ultra has an AMOLED screen, and it is still difficult to say what could be the reason for this behavior.
It remains to be seen that there are more watch owners who see the same effect. In this case, perhaps Apple itself will comment on the situation.
No, the Apple Watch Ultra is not a copy of the iPhone 14. The repairability of the watch is not up to par
iFixit specialists dismantled the Apple Watch Ultra smart watch. They did not rate the maintainability, but the review makes it clear that after the iPhone 14, they expected more from the new product.
Despite the presence of screws and the ease of removing the back cover, immediately after that there is the first problem. Apple uses a thin rubber pad to implement increased water resistance, and replacing it will be extremely difficult. But on the other hand, as we have already seen today, the watch is indeed able to withstand immersion to a depth of more than 40 meters.
In addition, it will be very difficult to dismantle the screen without damaging it. Here and persistent glue, and the wrong angle of prying.
And the bottom line is that it is the screen that needs to be dismantled in order to get to the battery. As a result, Watch Ultra disappointed iFixit specialists, but judging by the review, the watch is no worse than previous generations in terms of maintainability.
