What's new in Apple Watch Series 8?
The latest upgrades in Apple Watch Series 8 offer insightful features that allow women to monitor their health on the go and keep it private.

In addition, with iOS 16 and watchOS 9, Cycle Tracking users can now receive a notification if a logged history shows irregular, infrequent, or prolonged periods. This can be a symptom of underlying health conditions. Apple Watch Series 8 takes the guesswork out of trying to conceive – it uses your temperature readings to give you a retrospective ovulation estimate.
