Apple Watch Series 8 Pro AH

Regarding the rumored body temperature measurement function that will be installed in the Apple Watch Series 8, MacRumors reported that fever notifications will not be available at the time of release, and that it can only be used to check the transition of basal body temperature for women.

After all, it is difficult to measure the deep body temperature on the body surface

It is expected that the Apple Watch Series 8 will be able to receive notifications when it has a fever by installing a body temperature sensor, but it seems unlikely that it will be realized.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple seems to have tried the body temperature measurement algorithm until the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage in the development of the Apple Watch Series 7, but it did not produce satisfactory results, so this was decided. It is said that he had given up.
MacRumors explained that the problem at that time was that the surface of the body was easily affected by the outside temperature, and even if the algorithm was improved, it was not possible to accurately measure the core body temperature.
For this reason, it is highly likely that the body temperature measurement-related functions provided by Apple Watch Series 8 will be limited to “confirming the transition of basal body temperature for women”.

Preempting some of the high-performance sensors under joint development?

Technology from Rockley Photonics, which has developed sensors that can measure body temperature, blood pressure, the need for hydration, alcohol levels, lactate levels, and glucose (blood sugar) levels, could be used in the Apple Watch Series 8. MacRumors states that even in that case, blood sugar, lactate, and blood pressure measurement mechanisms will not be installed, and it is conceivable that it will be applied only to temperature measurement.
