Apple Watch 8 also comes with a crash detection feature that can detect if you’ve been in a serious car accident, automatically connecting you to emergency services. The Crash Detection feature will share your location and also notify your emergency contacts.

Apple is also introducing a power-saving mode, which extends the watch’s battery life to 36 hours – the feature is also coming to older watches, starting with the Series 4, as long as they’re running watchOS 9.

It comes in four colors – black, gold, aluminum and red – and three colors in stainless steel. At least it costs $399 for an aluminum model and $499 for one with mobile connectivity.
