Apple reportedly canceled plans to add a body temperature monitoring sensor in the Apple Watch Series 7, but the company may add it in the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8.
According to Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 8, which is rumored to be launched later this year, may feature a body temperature monitoring feature if the algorithm is able to meet Apple’s high requirements before it goes into mass production.
And it was reported that Apple canceled the Apple Watch 7’s body temperature measurement feature because the algorithm failed to qualify before entering the EVT stage last year, and “Ko,” the famous leaker specializing in Apple leaks, said: “I think the Apple Watch 8 at 2H22 can measure the temperature of the Apple Watch 8 at 2H22.” body if the algorithm is able to meet Apple’s high requirements before mass production.”
The analyst further suggests that “the challenge in implementing accurate body temperature measurement is that skin temperature varies rapidly depending on the external environments, and the smartwatch cannot support core temperature measurement in terms of hardware, so it needs an excellent algorithm to work together.”
Mark Gorman of Bloomberg previously predicted that 2022 will be the biggest year in Apple Watch history as the company may release three new smartwatches – a regular model, an affordable SE model and a rugged model for athletes, and Apple is also likely to stop rolling out updates for the Apple Watch Series 3 model. this year.
