The body temperature sensor was the new product XNUMX, which seems to be included in the new Apple Watch model 7 series, According to Ming Chi Kuo, you have to wait for Series 8.
Bad news for those who have been waiting for the new Apple Watch. Apple has with drawn one of the new XNUMX features that was expected for models arriving later this summer. reason? Does not meet the company’s stringent quality requirements, Decided to postpone the installation of the body temperature sensor until next year. This information is provided by Ming Chi Kuo in a series of tweets that explain the exact reason for this delay.
The problems Apple experienced when measuring body temperature are related to the fact that skin temperature changes rapidly with ambient temperature. Since Apple cannot measure core temperature (“good”), this feature is based on measuring skin temperature and applying algorithms, allowing you to estimate the actual temperature of your body depending on various factors such as environmental temperature. ..
The core temperature is the temperature inside our body. Since the internal temperature cannot be easily measured, the temperature in other more accessible areas, such as the armpits, mouth, eardrum, and rectum, is usually used. This is because these values are very close. None of these areas are near where you place your Apple WatchThe place where you can measure the temperature directly is on your wrist, which is an unreliable place for this measurement. Therefore, proper algorithms are needed to make more reliable measurements.
Apple hasn’t succeeded in enabling a reliable measurement of body temperature with that algorithmTherefore, it’s a good idea to postpone the implementation until next year’s Apple Watch before launching a feature that doesn’t work. As Kuo added, Samsung is experiencing the same issue with the Galaxy Watch 5.
