The company introduced 41mm and 45mm screen sizes with the launch of the Watch Series 7 last year. In addition to that, Apple also reduced the bezel size in the Watch Series 7. But now a new report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that 2022 could be the “biggest [year] in the history of Apple since the original model”.

Apple was planning to introduce the body temperature measurement feature in Watch Series 7 itself but couldn’t, as it could not optimise the algorithm. Hence, the tech giant is expected to release it in the upcoming watch series. Apple Watch Series 8 will come with a body temperature sensor and will be able to produce readings “in 2H22 if the algorithm meets Apple’s stringent requirements before mass production”.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to get a faster chip and better activity tracking features including sleep tracking that could detect advanced sleep patterns and sleep apnea. In terms of design, the smartwatch might not see any major design updates, even when it comes to size. Also, previous reports have tipped the Watch Series 8 will get a car crash detection feature.
