So far, we haven't heard much about this year's apple watch hardware update.According to a report from DIGITIMES today, Apple has reached a manufacturing agreement with ASE technology, which is preparing for the production line of the apple watch series 6.
Most notably, the report said, the watch will add oxygen sensors for the first time. 9to5mac had previously found evidence to support blood oxygen monitoring in the early construction of watchos 7.
According to the code discovery, it is not clear whether the existing watch model can unlock the feature. For years, it has been speculated that optical heart rate sensors can also measure oxygen content in the blood, at least to some approximation.
Since Apple didn't talk about blood oxygen when it released watchos 7 last month, it seems that apple is really waiting for special hardware support. DIGITIMES reports confirm this, saying that the next watch will be equipped with sensors that specifically detect blood oxygen levels.
Most healthy adults have blood oxygen levels above 95%. Blood oxygen level below a certain threshold is a leading indicator of respiratory problems, which can damage heart and brain function. Similar to the apple watch's existing low heart rate notification or ECG function, the apple watch series 6 can tell the wearer if it detects abnormal blood oxygen and suggests seeking medical help.
Apples are usually in autumniPhoneThe new Apple watch was announced at the conference. This year, Apple has announced that the launch of the iPhone 12 will be delayed by a few weeks. Of course, the new watch may be launched later than normal.
