Choosing the best Apple Watch for you
There are a variety of factors that go into finding the perfect watch to fit your needs. Budget of course is paramount, but existing Watch users with last year's model can also be left wondering if it's worth upgrading. We're breaking down what each generation offers so you can make the best choice based on your individual circumstances.
The Apple Watch Series 8 didn't get a new design, but it has a new temperature sensor, processor, and Crash Detection. Owners of recent Apple Watch models likely won't need to upgrade, but the new features could be critically important to some.
The temperature sensor is particularly vital to those who ovulate and want to track their cycles. Once it has a baseline temperature from a week of tracking a user's body temperature while sleeping, it can retroactively determine if a person has ovulated. This information can be very useful for planning pregnancy.
Crash Detection is a new feature available in the 2022 Apple Watch lineup and every iPhone 14 model. It uses accelerometers, a g-force sensor, and advanced algorithms to determine if someone was in a car crash. The Apple Watch will then call emergency services if the user is unresponsive.
The Apple Watch Series 8 is available from $399. The aluminum model is available in midnight, starlight, silver, and PRODUCT(RED). Stainless steel models come in graphite, gold, and silver.

Apple Watch Ultra
The rugged Apple Watch Ultra was built with the extreme athlete and explorer in mind. It can withstand harsh conditions like arid deserts and freezing mountain peaks.
This Apple Watch has all of the features found in Apple Watch Series 8 wrapped in a tough titanium exterior. The 49mm case is the biggest ever on an Apple Watch, and its sapphire-covered display is also the brightest at 2,000 nits.
Even if you're not going to dive 100M or endure temperatures from -20 C to 55 C, this is still a great model for large watch lovers. Take advantage of the Action Button to program an action or shortcut for instant access to any feature, or sound a loud siren to help others find you in the wilderness.
All the latest health and safety features are here too. Keep track of your heart rate during workouts, perform an ECG, track your sleep, or be notified of a possible ovulation thanks to temperature tracking.
The Apple Watch Ultra is only available in one size with a natural titanium finish. It is priced at $799 and has three unique band options — Alpine, Trail, and Ocean.

SE (2nd Generation)
The updated Apple Watch SE uses the S8 SiP processor, offers Crash Detection, and starts at a new, lower price. First-generation owners won't need to upgrade, but newcomers should definitely consider this updated budget model.
Since the Apple Watch Series 3 is discontinued and no longer supported by watchOS, the new Apple Watch SE is the best starting point in Apple's wearable lineup. It has the same design as the Apple Watch Series 4 and offers health sensors like heart rate and gyroscopes.
To ensure it could be priced as little as possible, Apple didn't include sensors for taking an ECG, measuring blood oxygen, or the new temperature sensor. But, it does have the latest processor and Crash Detection.
This budget model starts at $249 for the 40mm case, or $299 for the 44mm case. It comes in three colors — midnight, starlight, and silver.
Apple Watch SE 2
Apple Watch sales are often plentiful around seasonal holidays, with retailers discounting current and closeout models due to the popularity of the device as a holiday gift.
Black Friday 2022 discounts offered $60 off the Apple Watch Ultra, while multiple Series 8 styles were $50 off.
