Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweets that the Apple Watch Series 8 coming later this year may sport body temperature sensors.
His tweet: Apple canceled body temperature measurement for Apple Watch 7 because the algorithm failed to qualify before entering EVT stage last year. I believe Apple Watch 8 in 2H22 could take body temperature if the algorithm can meet Apple’s high requirements before mass production.
The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to come in the same size as the Series 7 and include more health management features. Look for an updated Apple Watch SE and an “extreme sports” version. All will see a slight redesign and a case that’s more resistant to scratches, dents, falls, and more.
