Apple Watch Series 7: Health features
According to earlier reports by Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 will not come with any new health sensors. However, the next Apple Watch could come with a body temperature sensor, which would help users check out their fertility indicators.
The Wall Street Journal has also stated that the company is testing new blood sugar and blood pressure sensors. However, it will still take a few years before the technology actually gets accurate for Apple to use in its Watch.
