Apple Watch May Not Get Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Sensors This Year
According to a new report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, this year's Apple Watch are expected to include body temperature monitoring and other health features but won't get blood pressure and blood sugar sensors.
The blood pressure and blood sugar sensors are still in testing and development phase and will likely be available in 2025. Apple is also reportedly working to bring new women's health-centric features to its smartwatch, including new fitness, sleep, and medication management tools in the Health app.
The company could announce a new body temperature monitoring sensor for this year's Apple Watch as well as atrial fibrillation wih the launch of watchOS 9. Previous rumors also suggested that watchOS 9 will offer a new iPhone-like low power mode to conserve battery life.
