Apple Watch Series 8 will not be equipped with any new sensors
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman writes in his Power On newsletter:
“I’m told that the high-end model is going to be a good bit bigger than the standard Apple Watch—big enough that it might only appeal to a subset of customers. The screen will be about 7% larger, and the device will have a fresh look—the first time the company has introduced a new Apple Watch design since 2018. It will be an evolution of the current rectangular shape, and not circular. It also won’t have those rumored flat sides (for those who will undoubtedly ask). In terms of materials, the watch will have a more durable formulation of titanium to make it extra rugged.”
There is no body temperature sensor, let alone the blood sugar and blood pressure sensors mentioned in the past, and it is not known when these sensors and related new functions will be introduced. Users who are interested in buying a new generation of Apple Watch may have to lower their expectations because it is reported that Apple Watch Series 8 may use basically the same SoC as Apple Watch Series 7. Even if the name is different, there will not be much difference in performance and function.
