Apple’s upcoming smartwatch will now tell whether you have a fever or not. According to a report, the body temperature tracker feature can be added to Apple Watch Series 8. This feature will track the user’s body temperature and will also alert if there is a fever. This feature is currently in the testing phase. The company can use it in the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8 next year.
Mark Gurman of Bloomberg has reported on this feature coming to Apple Watch. Gurman believes that this will tell about the spike in body temperature. Based on this the user can consult the doctor. According to the report, this body temperature sensor has passed internal testing. The company can use it in Watch Series 8 or Rugged Watch, which can be brought for extreme sports athletes.
Apple has been working on its body temperature sensor for the past one year. Gurman had first spotted this sensor in June 2021, which was expected to be introduced in January this year. However, the company has not yet revealed the information about this feature. At the same time, Apple analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo has recently told that this body temperature feature can be introduced at the end of the year.
Many new sensors will be added for women
According to the Wall Street Journal report, the body temperature sensor can also be used for fertility tracking. Changes in body temperature will tell when women are more likely to become pregnant. In addition, it will also be able to predict periods. However, Gurman has only mentioned fever in his report. It is not clear whether Apple will add cycle tracking capability to its upcoming Watch series.
Along with body temperature tracking in Apple Watch, many changes can be seen in the hardware as well. According to the report, the company will launch the upcoming watch.
Many types of health features are going to be added to the Apple Watch 8 Series.
One of these could be the body temperature detection sensor. According to a report that surfaced, the fever tracking feature is going to come in Apple’s upcoming watch.
Apple’s body-temperature feature has been reported for a while now. TFI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo had also talked about this in the past. He had said that Apple was “working hard to fine-tune the algorithms in the next smartwatch that will allow users to measure body temperature.”
