Recent rumors suggest that the forthcoming Apple Watch will be mostly similar to its predecessor. The most important change in the new watch is the addition of the body temperature sensor. The sensor could become a reality if it passes Apple’s very strict process. 

For the past few years, smartwatches have changed completely. Earlier connectivity with smartphones was enough. Users could pick up and answer calls, but with time companies added several monitors that can monitor heart rate, sugar, and more. Now, the addition of the body temperature sensor will offer users a better overview of their health. 

It is not hidden that Apple is focused on making its smartwatches one-stop solution for every health feature. This has done well in the past; we have already seen news revealing how a smartwatch managed to save lives by alerting the users in case of potential health problems or making emergency calls during accidents.

Apple might win the race to release a smartwatch with a temperature sensor

We have already seen various reports suggesting that companies have been trying to develop a smartwatch that can measure body temperatures correctly for quite a while. What’s more, it might sound easy to include a body temperature sensor in a smartwatch; after all, thermometers have been around for very long. However, it is not that straightforward in reality. Samsung and Apple are racing against each other to achieve the feat once for a while now. The recent reports suggest that Apple has gained the lead in this aspect over Samsung.  

However, it is important to note that the sensor is not yet out, and the release will likely depend on the accuracy of the sensor within an acceptable range. Though the reading offered by such a sensor wouldn’t be accurate compared to even the most basic thermometer. But it should offer useful insights to the users about their health.

Anyways, if the output of such a sensor is too unreliable, Apple might scrap the idea altogether. And even if the sensor passes Apple’s standards, it will still require the approval of a regulatory body.

Besides the sensor mentioned above, there is not much new about the upcoming latest Apple Watch. It might feature the same processor as its predecessor. Plus, its size might also be identical.
