    With September knocking on the door, tech enthusiasts are getting ready for the mega Apple launch season that lays ahead. The iPhone 14 series is the biggest launch expected to happen this fall but it won't be alone. Rumours suggest a new base model iPad along with a couple of updated MacBook Pro models. And yes, there will be some new Apple Watch models as well. You read that right, there will be “watches”. That's because alongside the Apple Watch Series 8, we could be seeing a new Apple Watch Pro and a new Apple Watch SE. Today's leak talks about the Apple Watch Series 8.

    With most leaks talking about the flagship new Apple Watch Pro having a larger display and stronger build, not much is said about the Watch Series 8. Many have suggested that the Series 8 will be a mild update on the Watch Series 7. It is likely to have the same curvy design with the surprisingly slim bezels and the same two sizes. Now, we get to know about the colours you can buy the Series 8 in.

    Apple Watch Series 8 to get a new colour

    Based on a tip from ShrimpApplePro, it is said that the Apple Watch Series 8 will come in a new shade of red this year. The Product Red variant will exist but with a new shade of red. Bright or darker? That you will have to wait until the official announcement.

    Other than the Red, the Apple Watch Series 8 is also expected to come in Midnight, Starlight, PRODUCT(RED), and Silver. However, you will be losing the Series 7's Blue and Green options this time.

    The Series 8 will be available in the same 41mm and 45mm sizes. The design of watch is also expected to remain the same and all the health features from the Series 7 are expected to stay on the newer model. It is also said that Apple will have more than enough stocks ready during the launch.

    What remains to be seen is what changes are coming to the Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen! Apple may continue to deprive it of ECG and Blood Oxygen Saturation monitoring but may upgrade the chip to the same level as the Series 7. It may take on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 across markets.
