Bloomberg: Apple Watch with body temperature sensor coming in 2022
There’s a new one Bloomberg reports on the Apple Watch, and it provides more details on what to expect in the fall and also next year. The seventh generation of the Apple Watch will be a step-by-step upgrade over the current Series 6 model with thinner display frames and improved screen lamination, reducing the air gap between the glass and the touch screen. The Series 7 will also provide improved UWB (ultra-wideband) connectivity.

The subsequent 8th generation of the Apple Watch was expected to take measurements of blood pressure, blood sugar and alcohol content. Bloomberg’s new report confirms that Apple is actually working on these features, but also mentions a special body temperature sensor.
The blood glucose monitor is reportedly “several years away” and would allow people with diabetes to monitor their blood sugar levels without actually drawing blood from their fingers. The temperature sensor is a more realistic feature that could arrive in 2022.
Bloomberg says the Apple Watch releases from 2022 will also include an updated SE model and a brand new rugged extreme sports model.
