Larger screen sizes expected for the new Apple Watch Series 7 models
Larger screen heading to Apple Watch Series 7 says Bloomberg’s Gurman
The Bloomberg scribe says that he doesn’t expect any new health-related features for the device this year, which means that Apple Watch owners will have to rely on already introduced features to save their lives. Last year, Apple added the blood-oxygen sensor which, as Apple explains, “monitors the percentage of oxygen your red blood cells carry from your lungs to the rest of your body” giving you a quick look at how healthy you are.
There is no word about a possible blood sugar sensor for the Series 7 Apple Watch
Apple would supposedly use infrared and visible light to get a look at various layers of the skin, blood, and other fluids in order to deliver a blood sugar reading. Currently, the tens of millions of insulin-injecting diabetics in the world use a sharp needle called a lancet to produce a drop of blood that is placed on an expensive disposable test strip. The strip is inserted into a device called a glucometer to get the reading.
Will this feature appear on next year’s Apple or Samsung smartwatches? That remains to be seen although both Apple and Samsung can expect to see a flood of smartwatch purchases from insulin-dependent diabetics once this technology is perfected.
