Apple Watch Series 8 Could Include a Body Temperature Sensor

If Apple adheres to its typical schedule, we should see the Apple Watch Series 8 for the first time in September. WatchOS 9 will most likely be unveiled for the first time during WWDC in June. Both events are months away, but speculation about a Watch upgrade is heating up.

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is anticipated to unveil up to three new watch models this year. A tough version is possible with the Series 8 and a redesigned Watch SE. That one would cater to extreme athletes.

Apple may deliver an improved low-power mode in watchOS 9. In addition to showing the time in low-power mode, the watch could run some applications and other functionalities.

From the start, Apple Watch has prioritized health, and Series 8 may have a body temperature sensor. At first glance, the objective is to assist consumers with fertility planning. It may eventually be used to alert wearers if their body temperature is too high, albeit a numerical number may not be shown.

Furthermore, Apple is likely to expand on atrial fibrillation (AFib) monitoring with a new "burden" function for watchOS0 that determines how frequently a person is in an AFib condition over time. Furthermore, new training and running analytics might be added to the Workout app.

In terms of health features that consumers should not expect to see in the Apple Watch Series 8, the long-rumored blood pressure sensor is unlikely to appear this year. According to Gurman, Apple has encountered some challenges with the technology, which is meant to detect indicators of hypertension, and it won't be ready for another couple of years. Noninvasive blood sugar monitoring is another long-rumored feature that will certainly not be included in Series 8 devices. According to Gurman, this will not happen for some years.

The article also mentions several iPhone features available in the medium future. The Health app could have enhanced sleep detection and included a function that allows users to scan prescription bottles and receive notifications when it is time to take tablets. The most recent smartphone lines may also include satellite connections, allowing users to text emergency personnel and report emergencies via satellite networks. Apple is rumored to be working on similar functionality for future Apple Watch models.
