WatchOS8 now brings a full QWERTY keyboard and QuickPath that allows you to slide your finger from one character to the next. You can also easily bounce back and forth between dictation, the scribble tool, and emojis, adding a bit more flexibility to sending texts on your watch.
And when dictation doesn’t work perfectly you can now use the Apple Watch’s Digital Crown to quickly scroll to typos and correct them.
Your Photos app will now look a bit similar to the layout on your phone. The app has a new home page that lets you scroll through your set albums.
And when you tap on an album, photos will be displayed in a mosaic grid to give the collection a unique look, allowing you to see all your photos at the same time.
Apple Watch can now detect and track bike workouts more easily. Starting a cycling workout now has improved motion tracking, and the workout will automatically pause and start again if you take a break.
There’s also a specific tracking feature for electronic bikes with more accurate, e-bike-specific tracking algorithms.
