Since the inception of the Apple Watch, you no longer need an iPhone in your hand to get stuff done. With the ability to message family, call your friends, set up reminders, and of course track your workouts, the Apple Watch has made us all rethink what watches can do for us. The most recent Apple Watch Series 8 -- and notably the new for '22 Apple Watch Ultra -- is the most advanced yet; it can potentially save lives with features like blood oxygen monitoring, irregular heart rate notifications, and even fall detection.
