watchOS 8 is compatible with these Apple Watch models

watchOS 8 was officially introduced at WWDC21 today and it brings a slew of new features, including new Portrait Mode faces, Music app redesign, Contacts app, and more.

watchOS 8 is compatible with all the same devices as watchOS 7. This means that if you currently have watchOS 7 installed on your Apple Watch, you’ll be able to install watchOS 8 when it arrives this Fall.
