In WWDC 2021, a lot of announcements were made, with regards to iOS, iPad OS, Mac OS, and Watch OS. In this article let’s discuss the announcements regards to Watch OS 8
We believe a summarised overview of the new Watch OS 8 , is worth giving a read.
Here are the note-worthy changes.
Design Changes in WatchOS 8
Portrait Watch face
Now in WachOS 8, you can add portrait images from your iPhones as your watch face and play around with the time placement to customise your watch face. WatchOS 8 takes the picture and makes a layered watch face to interact with the Apple watch crown.
Redesigned Photos App
WatchOS 8 brings a brand-new Photos App with memory highlights, mosaic distribution of images etc. Furthermore, you can now share pictures through the photos app on the Apple Watch with your friends and family.
Health Changes in WatchOS 8
New Breath App
The new breathe app now has a slower and gentle animation for you to be mindful and breathe better from now on.
New Sleep App
WatchOS 8 now monitors your respiratory behaviours while you are asleep along with your heart rate, blood oxygen and notifies you if it sees a trend in your respiratory changes so that you can act on it as quickly as possible.
It is a positive message accompanied by a pleasing animation to increased positivity and well-being.
Fitness Changes in WatchOS 8
All new workouts
With the latest edition of WatchOS, Apple has now added an all-new Tai Chi workout and a brand-new Pilates exercise to help you improve your training and remain fit.
