Tech giant Apple is all set to release its new smartwatch later this year namely Apple Watch Series 7. The brand is additionally planning to launch an updated version of the same watch next year which will have the blood glucose sensor, a one of its kind sensor which will put Apple smartwatches on a pedestal compared to the features provided in other contemporary smartwatches from other brands. The Apple Watch Series 7 has been developed keeping in mind the athletes who are involved in extreme sports activities.
According to several leaks that have been reported, the Apple Watch Series 7 will feature an updated display screen that will be thinner than the previous Apple watches and will also have a smooth and glossy appearance due to the new lamination technique that the company has been working on according to media reports.
Other features that are rumoured will be improvement in the wireless connectivity with devices, updated ultra wide-band functionalities and a faster processor or chipset. The smartwatch is also rumoured to have the new software namely the watchOS 8 that was unveiled by the company at the WWDC 2021 event recently. This new software will allow the users to unlock the doors of their rooms easily.
Earlier the rumours had claimed that the new watch would feature sensors with the help of which the users will be able to measure their accurate body temperature and also their blood sugar level sitting at the convenience of their homes. This feature will be particularly helpful to the diabetic patients who will be able to keep a check on the glucose level in their blood from time to time without any hassle. But now reports suggest that this feature will be available in the updated model of the watch next year and not in the model which is expected to be released later this year.
The reason for the delay in releasing this feature is reportedly that the company is working on a non-traditional method of collecting blood report directly through the skin with no need to inject or prick the skin to collect the blood sample. If successful, this technology would be one of a kind. It is to be noted that reports suggest that these plans are tentative and may change with time. More details are expected to be released in the upcoming months regarding the Apple Watch Series 7.
