Black Friday smartwatch deals make the Apple Watch 8 an easy pick

The Apple Watch Series 8 may be Apple’s newest smartwatch, but its reveal was somewhat overshadowed by the Apple Watch Ultra. With Black Friday fast approaching and last year’s watch on sale, do the new features in the Watch 8 make it worth buying over the Apple Watch Series 7?

Since the Watch Series 6, we’ve hoped for a design refresh of the Apple Watch, but Apple has mostly left the core aesthetic unchanged. The biggest improvement has been extending the display over toward the corners a little. This means that, at first glance, there’s little to differentiate the Apple Watch Series 8 from the Series 7, or even the Series 6.

Still, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and the Apple Watch remains far and away the most capable wearable fitness tracker/smartwatch. That’s because it ties so deeply into the iPhone’s iOS operating system. It also manages its own version of the App Store, so a lot of your apps will appear on the Watch instantaneously when connected.

Since there’s very little difference between the Series 7 and Series 8 models, which side you come down on could easily be decided by fine margins.
