Bloomberg reporter Mark Garman shared his expectations for the Apple Watch SE (2nd generation) and Apple Watch Series 8 in the newsletter “Power On .”
Equipped with the latest chip S8, but not equipped with a body temperature measurement sensor
German reports that the Apple Watch SE (2nd generation) will have the same system-on-chip (SoC) as the Apple Watch Series 8 S8 . It is rumored that the
S8 has the same internal structure as the S6 installed in the Apple Watch Series 6 and the S7 installed in the Apple Watch Series 7 .
Apple Watch Series 8 will be equipped with a temperature sensor, which is expected to provide the ability to monitor the user’s temperature and notify them when the temperature is higher than normal .
Gherman said this feature will not be available on the Apple Watch SE (2nd generation).
With the release of Apple Watch SE (2nd generation), Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be discontinued.
How much does the Apple Watch Series 8 and SE (2nd generation) cost?
The new Apple Watches to be released this fall are the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE (2nd generation) , with sales prices starting at $ 399 and $ 279, respectively, according to Gurman.
These prices are the same as the selling prices for Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE .
If the reporter’s prediction is correct, the selling price in Japan may start from 58,800 yen including tax for the Apple Watch Series 8 and 40,800 yen including tax for the Apple Watch SE (2nd generation).
The reporter also said that the Apple Watch 8 Pro is expected to be lined up as the top model .
