Some time ago we heard a rumor that Apple Watch 7 maybe able monitor your blood sugar, and while the new report suggests it probably won’t, it seems pretty likely that the Apple Watch 8 will have a feature on board.
It is Telegraph (UK newspaper) who found SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) that Apple is Rockley Photonics’ largest customer – a company that focuses on sensors that monitor blood sugar, blood pressure and alcohol content.
In addition to this, the CEO of Rockley Photonics has reportedly claimed that its technology would be in consumer products from 2022. They didn’t specifically say an Apple product, but Apple is responsible for most of Rockley Photonics ’past. for two years, it seems likely.
Do not rely on all three sensors
If this technology enters an Apple product, the Apple Watch is an obvious candidate because the company has done a great job of making it a health and fitness device.
Of course, we don’t think the Apple Watch 8 will be able to monitor blood pressure or alcohol content. Blood sugar seems most likely because it has been rumored in the past, but it is possible that it will be able to track two or even all three of these things.
Blood sugar monitoring (also known as glucose monitoring) can be especially helpful for diabetics because they need to monitor this closely. But anyone interested in the performance of their body may also want to follow, so it would be a handy feature for the upcoming Apple Watch.
