Is it time to upgrade your smartwatch?

Is now the right time to strap on the latest Apple Watch?

Don’t get me wrong. The Apple Watch is still arguably the best wearable on the market. It’s sleek, easy to use and allows its owners to stay more attuned to their health and wellness.

Apple Watch Series 8, available Sept. 16 starting at $399, continues the tech giant’s trend of spitting out polished and highly functional smartwatches. Having tried out the Series 8 for several days, I’ve learned that more than ever, having the newest model really depends on exactly what you want from it.

The key addition this year is a wrist temperature sensor, which Apple said will help users who are cycle tracking. When you wear the Series 8 at night, it will measure your wrist temperature over five nights to determine your baseline temperature. Each night you wear it, the watch will keep tabs on any shifts in your body temperature.

The sensor can help people create ovulation estimates for family planning or to more accurately track periods. Once it gets to know the user’s body, the watch can then send estimates if a cycle deviates.
