Apple’s suppliers are reportedly working on next-generation sensors for the Apple Watch Series 8 that will allow users to measure their blood glucose levels.

According to Digitimes report, Apple and its suppliers have already begun developing short-wavelength infrared sensors, which are commonly used in medical devices. The new sensor will most likely be installed on the back of the Apple Watch Series 8, allowing it to measure the amount of sugar and glucose in the wearer’s blood.

This would be a fantastic addition to the current Apple Watch models‘ features.

The Apple Watch Series 6 recently received a blood oxygen sensor. In comparison to the first Apple Watch, which could only measure daily activity, the Apple Watch can now take an ECG, detect falls, high and low heart rates, blood oxygen levels, and more.

Apple Watch Series 7 was recently released by the Cupertino-based tech giant.

In India, the Apple Watch Series 7 (41 mm) costs Rs 41,900 but can be purchased for Rs 38,900 after cashback, while the Apple Watch Series 7 (45 mm) costs Rs 44,900 but can be purchased for Rs 41,900 after cashback.

The new Series 7 is available in green, blue, midnight, starlight, and (PRODUCT) red. Furthermore, stainless-steel models will be available in silver, graphite, and gold.

The Apple Watch Series 7 has a redesigned Always-On retina display with a larger screen area and thinner borders.

The new Mindfulness app, sleep respiratory rate tracking, and Tai Chi and Pilates workout types can all contribute to better overall wellness.

It also continues to provide health and wellness tools, such as an electrical heart sensor and ECG app, as well as a blood oxygen sensor app.

According to the company, the Apple Watch Series 7 is the first Apple Watch to have an IP6X certification for dust resistance and a WR50 water resistance rating.
