There is now about a week left for the Far Out event, during which Apple will introduce the new iPhone 14 and the smartwatches of the Apple Watch Series 8 family and the latter are at the center of some interesting rumors of the last hour, published on Twitter by the insider ShrimpApplePro.
According to the source, the Apple Watch Series 8 will continue to be available in 41mm and 45mm case sizes, just like the Apple Watch Series 7. Adding to a previous report on color options of the Apple Watch Series 8, the leaker said the device’s (PRODUCT) RED option will be a “new shade of red.”

The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to come in fewer color options compared to the Series 7. It may only come in Midnight, Starlight, PRODUCT (RED), and Silver, losing the Blue and 7-series greens.
The Apple Watch Series 8 box is also said to feature the same design as the Apple Watch Series 7, but with more glue on the pull tabs. This change is intended to leave traces of glue when opening the tabs to more clearly confirm that the box has been opened. The modified packaging is also believed to apply to the iPhone 14 lineup. Sources speaking to ShrimpApplePro said that the contents of the Apple Watch Series 8 box remain largely the same as the Series 7.
Last year, the Apple Watch Series 7 launched nearly a month after it was announced and suffered severe shipping delays. ShrimpApplePro said stock levels of the Apple Watch Series 8 are adequate, leading to speculation of “little to no shipping delay” at launch.
Expected Specs on the Apple Watch Series 8
The famous tech reporter for Bloomberg Mark Gurman has already advanced that this smartwatch will have a screen with almost two inches diagonally, increasing its viewing area by 7%, and a resolution of 502×410 pixels.
We can also expect the new model “family” to arrive equipped with the S8 processor which, unfortunately, will have very similar specs to the previous S7 chip, which means that performance and speed upgrades will be minimal. On the other hand, the new integrated low-power mode will allow the user to use more applications, without draining the battery quickly.
For the rest, several sources say that the Apple Watch Series 8 will have more and better features aimed at health, but that not all of them may be working at 100% at the time of its launch. A good example is the new temperature sensor which, at an early stage, will be aimed at monitoring the woman in her fertile period and, only later, will it be able to provide information on the body temperature of all users.
