Earlier it was reported that this year Apple will equip its smartwatches with a number of sensors that will measure temperature and pressure. Some even reported about the possible appearance of a built-in glucometer in the Apple Watch Series 8. However, Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman refutes this information in the new issue of his newsletter. According to him, Apple needs more time to create and test sensors.
Gurman confirms earlier rumors that Apple is working on three new systems that will give users the ability to use Apple Watch to measure blood sugar, pressure and body temperature. However, according to the journalist, the same glucometer should appear in Apple smartwatches after 2025, and the built-in blood pressure monitor in the next two to three years.
Initially, it was assumed that one of the chips of the Apple Watch Series 8 would be the function of measuring body temperature. But according to Mark Gurman, Apple needs more time to finalize this option. Thus, the Apple Watch is deprived of almost all the expected innovations. The only health-related feature of the Apple Watch Series 8 could be an improved sleep tracker.
However, keep in mind that the company still has time to refine and test sensors. The official announcement of the Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to take place in the fall.
