Apple Watch Series 8 could measure fever

The smartwatch will be able to detect a spike in the user’s body temperature. In that case, he or she may recommend that you see your doctor or use a thermometer.

Apple Watch Serie 8 will be equipped with a sensor that measures body temperature for fever. At the moment no official confirmation from Apple, but the news comes from Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, a journalist who has often proved to be reliable, as happened at the WWDC 2022 about the new iOS 16 update.

Regarding the Apple Watch Series 8, Gurman believes the smartwatch will be able to detect a peak in temperature body of the user. In that case, he or she may recommend that you see your doctor or use a thermometer. This sensor should also be incorporated on the alleged “robust” watch reserved for athletes. However, according to the reporter, the particular device still stands in a phase of internal tests. For that reason, the next entry-level Apple Watch is likely to be devoid of it.

That of the sensor capable of measuring body temperature is a rumor circulating since 2021. This time it is really expected to make its debut by the end of 2022. Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuoanalyst at TF International Securities, a group that deals with financial services in Asia and the Pacific. Furthermore, according to previous reports by Gurman and The Wall Street Journal, the sensor could also be used for monitoring fertility and therefore the period. The changes in body temperature could in fact help determine the period of fertility and predict when the period will arrive. However, this last function is not present in the latest report published by Gurman, so it remains an uncertainty without any official character. It is still unclear how and if Apple intends to add cycle tracking functionality.

New iPhones may have always-on displays

In addition to the body temperature sensor, the Bloomberg reporter said any other changes to the Apple Watch hardware “are likely to be minor.” He also suggested the possibility of an improved display in the high-end models. Gurman finally predicted last week that the 8 Series processor will have the same level of performance as the previous S7 and S6 chips.
