Apple Watch Series 8 Still Missing Health Sensors

The Apple Watch Series 8 is still a long time coming and yet there are first rumors about the new Smartwatch. Expert Mark Gurman reports that the new sensors for measuring blood pressure, blood sugar, and body temperature may be years in the making.

The Apple Watch Series 7 did not appear until October 2021 and the first rumors about the Apple Watch Series 8 are already emerging. Well-known leaker Mark Gurman claims out loud 9to5Mac that not much should change with the upcoming update of the smartwatch. Rather bad news for Apple fans, because after all, the Apple Watch 7 brought few innovations compared to its predecessor.

So far, the Apple Watch 8 has been a beacon of hope for two new sensors – one for measuring blood sugar and one for measuring blood pressure. A feature that Samsung already offers in its Galaxy Watch 4. According to current rumors, these will not come to Apple users until the second half of the decade. As so often, however, Gurman does not give a comprehensible source for his information.

His statements are based on the roadmap that Apple works with internally. The leaker wrote precisely: “Don’t expect any of this anytime soon. Body temperature was on the roadmap this year, but the talk about it has slowed down lately. Blood pressure will be at least two to three years away. and I wouldn’t be surprised if blood glucose monitoring doesn’t hit the market until the second half of the decade. ” While the functional scope of the Apple Smartwatches is unlikely to change much, there are good innovations for the lineup itself. Because we may see a completely new Apple Watch model.

3 new models for 2022?

Speaking of Apple leakers, Ming-Chi Kuo should of course not be missing. In November 2021, he claimed that Apple will appear to be launching three different models. Including a more robust outdoor version, an SE version, and the basic model of the Apple Watch.

Rumors about the Apple Watch Series 8 are still cranking away, but there should be more information about possible upgrades of the Smartwatch in the next few months.
