Will Apple Watch measure Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar?
According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), although the above features will not be available this year, the company has always aspired to make the Apple Watch the center of health control.
Previously, some sources said that Apple was developing new features such as measuring blood pressure (only referring to an up/down trend, not providing readings of systolic and diastolic blood pressure), only blood sugar, temperature… in upcoming versions.
During the discussions, some Apple employees questioned managers about these features, however, it is unlikely that they will appear this year.
The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to improve sleep tracking, including tracking sleep patterns and sleep apnea. One problem that many devices often have when tracking sleep is too low battery life. Many people hope that the company will soon find a solution to fix it in the future.
Besides, some sources also claim that Apple is “struggling” with blood glucose sensors to make it work. This is of particular interest because it does not require invasive behavior.
