Apple Watch Series 8 can be expected to tell if one has fever

In future you can expect your Apple watches to tell you if you need to visit your doctor because Apple Watch Series 8 may be able to detect if you have a fever. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman talked about this in one of his recent articles. Series 8 of Apple watches will not be providing the exact reading of body temperature but will let one know if she/he needs to go to the doctor or use a thermometer. Gurman said, “Apple Watch Series 8 will be able to tell you if you have a fever. You can expect some new health-tracking features in this year’s Apple Watch. In April, I reported that Apple has been aiming to add body-temperature detection to its Series 8 model, assuming the capability passes muster during internal testing. I now believe the feature is a go for both the standard Apple Watch Series 8 and a new rugged edition that’s aimed at extreme sports athletes. It’s unlikely to be available in the new version of the lower-end SE, which is also coming this year.” He added, “The body-temperature feature won’t give you a specific reading—like with a forehead or wrist thermometer—but it should be able to tell if it believes you have a fever. It could then recommend talking to your doctor or using a dedicated thermometer.”

Another device of Apple is going to come to the market and that is an updated version of Airpods. But it will not include temperature monitoring features. Gurman said, “I’m told that neither feature is likely to arrive in the 2022 upgrade, though both enhancements have been explored inside the company and could arrive one day,” But according to an article by Engadget, “Apple’s health ambitions for AirPods might extend beyond using them to boost conversations. Wall Street Journal sources claim Apple is exploring multiple ways it can use AirPods as health devices.”
