Apple Watch Series 8 in 2022 may come with a body temperature sensor

The Apple Watch Series 8 could come with new sensors.

Highlights
  • Apple Watch Series 8 could feature a body temperature sensor.
  • In 2022, Apple could also launch an updated Apple Watch SE and a rugged Apple Watch.
  • Apple Watch Series 7 in 2021 will be an incremental update with slimmer bezels.

A new report states that Apple could include a body temperature sensor in the Apple Watch Series 8. For this year’s Apple Watch Series 7, we can expect modest changes in terms of features. However, the Series 7 is expected to get a new design, an improved display with thinner bezels, and an overall flatter look.

Another report recently stated that this year’s Apple Watch Series 7 could feature advanced sensors for monitoring blood sugar, blood pressure, etc.

Apple Watch features expected in the near future

The latest Apple Watch report from Bloomberg believes that advanced sensors such as those for blood sugar monitoring, blood pressure, alcohol, etc, are still a few years away. What we can expect next year is a body temperature sensor, but that’s not guaranteed either. Bloomberg reported that Apple is indeed working on bringing all these features to the Apple Watch, but the timeline isn’t clear.

The blood glucose monitoring on Apple Watch will allow users to get results without having to draw blood from their fingers. This technology is still a couple of years away, but Apple is certainly planning on adding it to the Apple Watch. A recent report had revealed that UK firm Rockley Photonics will be supplying sensors that’ll enable these features. 

According to Bloomberg, Apple will launch a new Apple Watch SE in 2022 alongside a rugged variant for the outdoors. The Apple Watch Series 7 coming later this year will not have too many new features. It’ll get thinner bezels, improved screen lamination, and a better ultra-wideband chipset.
