Apple Watch Series 8 health features: What you need to know

Apple Watch Series 8

Health features of Apple Watch Series 8

Apple is slated to release the Apple Watch Series 8 in the fall of this year, and it is believed to include several long-awaited improvements, at least in terms of health. The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to offer a considerable increase over the Apple Watch Series 7, according to Mark Gurman. 
 
According to reports, the Apple Watch Series 8 will include an upgraded atrial fibrillation detection capability that will be able to “compute how often someone is in a state of atrial fibrillation over a given period.” This feature will be known as “afib burden detection” and is expected to arrive with the next release of the Apple Watch’s operating system (watchOS 9) that Apple will announce. 
 
With the upcoming watchOS, Apple is likely to incorporate a new low power mode that will allow some of the watch’s apps to run even while the watch is on low power. When the watch is on low power, it currently simply shows the time. It could be able to perform more after the latest OS release.

The Apple Watch 8 may include a body-temperature sensor, according to some sources, but “it will initially only help with fertility planning.” A “later version may assist you detect if you have a higher-than-normal body temperature, but it may not reflect an actual reading,” according to reports. 
 
In addition, the new Apple Watch is likely to come with new watch faces, exercise modes, and analytics for runners. 
 
According to Gurman, capabilities like blood pressure measurement may not be included in the Apple Watch until 2024 or 2025, and non-invasive blood sugar monitoring may not be available until much later. According to reports, Apple is testing a new technology on employees that “supposedly won’t tell you your systolic and diastolic measurements, but will instead notify you if it suspects you could have hypertension.” 
 
The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to be followed by a low-cost SE variant and a high-end robust model aimed at athletes.
