Latest Tech: Apple Watch may get thermometer, blood-pressure measure in future versions, report says
Apple reportedly has some ambitious health features in store for future versions of its Apple Watch. The tech giant is working on giving the Apple Watch a “tool to tell users when their blood pressure is increasing and a thermometer to help with fertility planning,” according to a report Wednesday from The Wall Street Journal.
The fertility feature could be available as soon as next year, said the Journal, citing unnamed sources and internal Apple documents.
Apple could show off its next smartwatch, the Apple Watch 7, at a rumored September Apple event alongside the iPhone 13. While these reported health features aren’t expected to debut in the Apple Watch 7, the new smartwatch will likely come with the company’s WatchOS 8 software, announced at WWDC this past June.
Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
More to come.
