A new report published by DigiTimes claims that Apple vendors are currently working on dedicated infrared sensors. The latter will be used in the Apple Watch Series 8 and will allow you to measure the user’s blood sugar level.
The authors of the Taiwanese resource claim that Ennostar and Taiwan Asia Semiconductor are involved in the development of components. Potentially, new sensors can significantly expand the capabilities of the Apple Watch and, in addition to determining the level of glucose in the blood, track a number of other indicators.
Apple’s main goal is to build a non-invasive glucometer into its smartwatches. Earlier sources claimed that work in this direction has been going on for more than a year. In the process, the company’s engineers have to solve a variety of problems.
In the past, it was reported that Apple Watch can get not only a built-in glucometer, but also a thermometer and a blood pressure monitoring function. True, when exactly all these options will appear in Apple smartwatches is currently unknown. Sources give different dates.
