APPLE has released the next-generation Apple Watch Series 8 and two other impressive watch models during the Far Out event.
The new wearables were the first product introduced by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
"Apple Watch has become an essential companion," Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the conference.
"This year, we're introducing our best Apple Watch lineup yet," he continued.
The new Apple Watch Series 8 is closely integrated with the iPhone and has numerous health and fitness applications.
The Series 8 is equipped with a new temperature sensor and a heart rate sensor that can share data with your healthcare provider.
Apple also introduced a potentially lifesaving feature called Crash Detection.
With Crash Detection, the Apple Watch Series 8 will automatically connect the wearer with emergency services if the forces of a car crash are detected.
The new wearable is powered by the all-new watchOS 9.
The Series 8 will cost $399 with GPS and $499 with cellular data.

Apple also introduced two other models: the Apple Watch SE and their heavy-duty, sporty Ultra Watch.
The Apple Watch SE represents a more affordable option at $249 with GPS and $299 with cellular data.
The Ultra comes with the largest battery of any Apple Watch yet and holds 36 hours to a charge – an upcoming software update will give the wearable up to 60 hours of battery life.
The Ultra has a second button, called the Action Button, that can be customized by the user for quick, convenient screen toggling.
The Ultra can be fitted with three new bands designed to stay on the wearer's wrist, even in the most intense conditions on Earth.
Apple also designed a new GPS system for tracking workouts in urban conditions, where skyscrapers block can connections.
The Ultra will be available on September 23 for $799.
