Apple watch 7 series with blood sugar, blood pressure and alcohol monitoring launch with iphone 13. Future models may be able to measure blood sugar levels, blood pressure and blood alcohol, suggest revelations from one of Apple’s suppliers.
Blood sugar sensor from Rockley photonics for Apple Watch 7
U.K. company Rockley Photonics, which makes sensors for wearables, doesn’t expect to deliver the silicon photonics chipsets needed for those health monitoring features until the first half of 2022, it said in documents filed in its process of becoming a publicly traded company.
U.K. newspaper The Telegraph first reported on the filing, in which Rockley called Apple its biggest customer. The company said its products are designed for several uses, including medical devices to track blood pressure, body temperature, blood glucose, blood alcohol and blood oxygen levels.
Rockley’s “clinic on the wrist” technology uses infrared sensors to detect various medical readings through the skin, which the company claims is better than the technology used in wearables.
Apple Watch 7 release date
If we had to guess the Apple Watch 7 release date, we’d pinpoint mid-September 2021. For the last few years, without fail, Apple has debuted a new smartwatch via a Tuesday keynote in the Fall, with availability starting Friday of that week or the next.
Expected features and specifications of Apple Watch 7
According to Tom’s guide Blood pressure monitoring: There are a few reasons why blood pressure monitoring could come to Apple Watch next year. First, it’s a viable candidate for the company’s informally annual health feature upgrade. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has a sensor for blood pressure monitoring, so there’s already a template that Apple can follow.
But it seems the company has a proprietary approach in mind. A patent filing recently won by Apple gives it a leg up in health tracking with built-in blood pressure monitoring that incorporates correction factors. For comparison, Samsung’s blood pressure monitoring requires monthly calibration, which can be cumbersome.
Mental health tools: When the Fitbit Sense unveiled a slew of stress management tools, we hoped Apple would follow up with similar features for Apple Watch 6. They didn’t come to fruition.
MicroLED display: Apple Watch 7 could be ready to make the switch from an OLED display to a microLED screen, enabling a slimmer and more power-efficient Apple Watch.
