The Apple Watch Series 7 disappointed many fans of the company “Apple” by the lack of some sensors for monitoring health indicators that appear in new smartwatches from other manufacturers. According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, the appearance of new sensors in Apple’s smartwatches is not expected in the next few years.
In its newsletter, Gourmet says Apple is working on three major new features for the watch: blood glucose monitoring, blood pressure monitoring, and body temperature. In order to realize these possibilities, it is necessary to equip the device with new sensors that are not ready at the moment.
The foodie says the temperature sensor will definitely not appear on the Apple Watch in 2022. The devices needed to measure blood pressure won’t be ready in the next two to three years, and the glucose sensor won’t hit the Apple Watch until the second half of this decade. The only new feature in the next generation of Apple smartwatches will be the improved sleep monitoring function.
There is speculation that Apple will even revise its strategy for releasing new smartwatch models every year as the company lacks time to develop technologies that will radically differentiate the new generation of the device from the previous one. However, Apple will present the new Watch this year on the usual schedule in early autumn. The new smartwatch range is expected to include the Watch Series 8, the second generation Watch SE and a brand new smartwatch in a rugged case.
