According to a new report from Apple Watch Series 6, blood oxygen control will be added to its list of features when it is launched later this year. DigiTimes.
“Apple Watch 6 will include biosensors that can monitor sleep conditions, detect blood oxygen and measure heart rates, heart rate, and atrial fibrillation, and will also include an MEMS-based accelerometer and gyroscope, all of which will allow the new device to continue to conduct measurement accuracy between wearable devices.
Website sources in Taiwan claim that the next generation of Applple Watch has undergone “smooth development” thanks to close collaboration between Apple and Taiwanese ASE Technology, which has won significant backend orders for the device.
The omitted code found in iOS 14 has previously suggested that Apple is working on an “Applple Watch” system that can detect blood oxygen levels.
Based on the discovered code, Apple will warn you when the level of oxygen in the blood falls below a healthy threshold, which is exactly around 95 to 100 percent saturation. A drop in blood oxygen levels can indicate a serious respiratory or heart problem.
It was not clear from the code whether this feature would be limited to the new “Applple Watch” Series 6 devices or whether it would occur as a software update in WatchOS 7, but the current report suggests that it may only apply to Series 6.
When the original “Applple Watch” was released in 2015, iFixit actually found that Apple’s heart sensors were able to monitor blood oxygen levels, but Apple never activated it.
Other creators of smartwatch and fitness tracking, including Google-owned Fitbit, already offer blood oxygen monitoring features on some of their wearable devices, so Apple is playing catch-up in this area, but that could mean the company has a more advanced implementation of the feature at work.
The “Applple Watch” Series 6 models, which are being developed in the fall, are described as models with higher performance, better water resistance and improved wireless transmission at faster Wi-Fi and cellular speeds.
These improvements will be accomplished in part through the notorious liquid crystal polymer or LCP swap behind flexible circuit boards, which Apple Ming-Chi Kuo analyst expects to include in the “Applple Watch” Series 6.
