Watch Series 8 could feature body temperature measurement if Apple gets the algorithm right

The Sequence 8 anticipated to reach in Q3 2022 was rumored to function physique temperature , however a report earlier this 12 months claimed an with a physique temperature sensor will not be coming for no less than one other 12 months. Nonetheless, widespread analyst Ming-Chi Kuo now says the Watch Sequence 8 with physique temperature might nonetheless occur in H2 2022.

Kuo says final 12 months’s Watch Sequence 7 did not function physique temperature measurement as a result of the measurement did not qualify earlier than coming into EVT (engineering validation take a look at).

Getting the proper to supply correct outcomes is essential since a smartwatch cannot help {hardware} for core temperature measurement and has to depend on pores and skin temperature, which shortly varies relying on outdoors environments.

Therefore, if the algorithm meets Apple’s high quality necessities earlier than the Watch Sequence 8’s mass manufacturing begins, the smartwatch will include physique temperature measurement, else we’ll have to attend longer for an Apple Watch that may measure physique temperature.

The analyst additional stated that Samsung can also be going through related challenges with its Galaxy Watch 5, and the smartwatch won’t measure physique temperatures as a result of algorithm limitations.
