Apple Watch Series 8 to let you know if you have a fever: report



The health-centric Apple Watch Series 8 is reportedly equipped with a body temperature sensor that will let the user know if they have a fever.

The next Apple Watch should be able to detect a spike in body temperature and then ask you to use a thermometer, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports.

“This feature fits both the standard Apple Watch Series 8 and a new Rugged Edition aimed at extreme sports athletes,” he said.

The next low-end Apple Watch SE will not have this health feature.

Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also believes the body temperature sensor will debut later this year.

Previous reports suggested the sensor could also be used for fertility tracking – changes in body temperature could help someone determine when they are more likely to get pregnant.

The watchOS 9 will also bring new features, including an improved workout app, sleep stages, a first-of-its-kind Afib history feature, an all-new medication app and more.

“This fall, watchOS 9 takes the Apple Watch experience to the next level with scientifically validated insights into fitness, sleep, and heart health, while giving users more creative ways to take ownership of their Apple Watch.” , said Jeff Williams, chief operating officer of Apple. , said last month.

The company said watchOS 9 brings sleep stages to the Sleep app and a new FDA-approved AFib history feature that provides deeper insight into a user’s state.

With watchOS 9, users who are diagnosed with atrial fibrillation can turn on the Atrial Fibrillation History feature and access important information, including an estimate of how often a user’s heartbeat shows signs of fibrillation. auricular, providing more in-depth information about their condition.

Last month, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved software, developed by neurology company Rune Labs, that helps people with Parkinson’s disease track their symptoms via Apple Watch.
