Analyst Ming_Chi Kuo said that last year’s Watch Series 7 did not have a body temperature measurement feature because the measurement algorithm was not qualified before entering the EVT (technical validation test).
Body temperature measurement feature wiil come Apple Watch Series 8
It is very important to use the right algorithm to produce accurate results as smartwatches cannot support hardware to measure core temperature and must rely on skin temperature (which quickly changes depending on the temperature of the skin). into the external environment).
Therefore, if the algorithm meets Apple’s quality requirements before mass production of the Apple Watch Series 8 begins, this generation will support the body temperature measurement feature.
The analyst adds that Samsung is also facing similar challenges with its Galaxy Watch 5. This smart watch may also not be able to measure body temperature due to algorithmic limitations.
