Health: Apple Watch Series 8 may debut a temperature sensor
Years before the pandemic, Apple already had long-term health ambitions for popular wrist accessories, with CEO Tim Cook describing health as “Apple’s greatest contribution to humanity.” According to reports Bloomberg And the The Wall Street JournalApple may further these ambitions by adding a temperature sensor to the Apple Watch Series 8.
The temperature sensing feature could bring new fertility planning tools to the Apple Watch, according to reports. latest Bloomberg report Indicates that Series 8 may be able to detect fever. But that doesn’t mean you should expect to get a specific temperature reading as you would when using a standard thermometer. Instead, Bloomberg says it will likely be able to tell if you have a fever and recommends using a dedicated thermometer or consulting a doctor.
There are also a number of other health features in Apple’s pipeline, according to reports, although these tools are still in development. They include glucose monitoring, a tool that alerts users if the blood oxygen level is low, sleep apnea detection and blood pressure monitoring, according to the Journal and Bloomberg. But these features are expected to be out of the way and likely won’t appear on the Apple Watch for years. Bloomberg reports that the blood pressure instrument won’t be ready until 2024 at the earliest.
The blood pressure technology will work by using sensors to measure the speed of the wave that the heartbeat sends through a person’s arteries, according to the magazine. Unlike traditional blood pressure monitor cuffs, which are usually strapped around the upper arm, they will not provide baseline systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements. Instead, the report said, it will tell you how your blood pressure is trending. Samsung previously integrated a similar blood pressure feature intowhich is available in some countries and regions such as South Korea and Europe, where it has received regulatory approval.
Design: Apple Watch Series 8 may get a new size
Overall, the Apple Watch’s overall aesthetic has remained virtually unchanged since the original watch made waves in 2015. But rumors suggest that Apple may add a new Apple Watch size after the Series 7 screen is enlarged. Posts on Twitter According to display analyst Ross Young, a third Apple Watch size may pay off this year. Bloomberg He also says there have been some internal discussions about the Series 8 getting an updated screen, but it’s unclear if that means it will change in size.
New Style: Rugged Apple Watch
According to Gorman, Apple is considering a “durable case” watch and a rubber exterior designed for use in conditions more severe than everyday use. Apple is said to be targeting athletes, hikers, and people who generally use it in harsh environments. It’ll have the same functionality as a standard Apple Watch but have better protection and impact resistance, Bloomberg says. Apple is expected to release the powerful Apple Watch in 2022, which means we might see it this fall along with the new Series 8 and Apple Watch SE.
Performance: Similar to Series 7
Apple isn’t planning to make major changes to Series 8 performance, according to Bloomberg. The Series 8 processor is said to have the same specifications as the Series 7 chip, which already shares many similarities with the Series 6 chip. Apple is keeping a more significant processor update for next year’s Apple Watch, Bloomberg reports.
The decision to keep the same processor for three generations of Apple Watch is significant. It indicates that the Apple Watch has matured to the point that the annual performance changes aren’t too dramatic. Instead, the biggest areas where the Apple Watch is showing signs of growth include health tracking and new software features, Apple explained.
Battery life: New low power mode
Since the Series 8 is expected to have a processor similar to the Series 7, I expect the battery life to remain the same as well. But Series 8 may get a different update aimed at extending battery life: a new Low Power mode. Bloomberg Previously mentioned WatchOS 9 will include a new Low Power mode that will allow the watch to run certain apps and features while conserving battery life. This feature was not included in Apple’s recent software update, but it did Bloomberg report It suggests that it could be exclusive to the next generation Apple smartwatch.
