Apple is preparing to present the new Apple Watch 8. Few details have emerged from this new range of smartwatches. However, there are a lot of rumors about what it will look like, the different versions it will have and the new features it will offer. A few days ago, the journalist from BloomBerg Mark Gurman said the new Apple device will detect sudden changes in temperature. Now it has revealed that it will also have a rugged model aimed at users who play extreme sports.
The Cupertino company is studying the marketing of three connected watches this year, as announced by analyst Ming Chi Kuo late last year in a note to investors collected by MacRumors. Concretely, the specialist indicated that the new Apple Watch series would be made up of three models: the Apple Watch Series 8, a new Apple Watch SE and a third watch, designed for extreme sports.
One Apple Watch, three different models
Analyst Mark Gurman has confirmed that Apple plans to release a smartwatch with “the biggest screen yet, a bigger battery and a rugged metal case.” This new smartwatch, which will be announced later this year, along with the other two models, will be a rugged version of the Apple Watch and its screen will be around 7% larger than that of the Apple Watch Series 7.
Because of this size, Gurman believes Apple can take advantage of this larger area to display more training-related information and metrics. Likewise, the analyst revealed that the panel of this portable It will have a resolution of around 410 x 502 pixels and will retain the general sharpness of current models and have a longer battery life to cope with long periods of training.
Apple Watch 8 will warn you if you have a fever
As announced a few days ago, Gurman indicated that this model will include the ability to measure sudden changes in the user’s temperature and detect if they have a fever. However, analysts warn that the watch will be able to detect changes in temperature, but it won’t give us a specific reading like a conventional thermometer does.
That Apple wants to integrate a body temperature sensor into one of its Apple Watch models is nothing new. Rumors about this new feature have been circulating for a long time. Bloomberg had already assured last year that this functionality would arrive with the blood glucose meter in 2022, that is to say in the Apple Watch Series 8. Shortly after, the Wall Street Journal confirmed this information.
Gurman also pointed out that all three of Apple’s new smartwatch models will use S8 processors, which anticipate similar performance to the S7 chip currently in the Apple Watch Series 7. Of course, that Apple Watch Series 8 is also expected. for extreme sports. be more expensive than the classic stainless steel Apple Watch, which today costs 729 euros.
Remember that the announcement of a new Apple connected watch more geared towards extreme sports would coincide in time with the arrival of watchOS 9, the new version of the operating system, which the manufacturer presented at the beginning of last month in as part of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Then Apple CEO Jeff Williams said watchOS 9 would take the Apple Watch experience “to the next level with evidence-based insights into physical activity, sleep quality, and health. cardiovascular of users”. .
