Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to come with this new sensor if it successfully passes the internal testing phase. In addition, Gurman says the feature could also be present in the “rugged model” Apple Watch for athletes, which is also expected to launch this year alongside the Apple Watch Series 8.

According to the official statement, “You can expect some new health-tracking features in this year’s Apple Watch. In April, I reported that Apple is aiming to add body-temperature detection to its Series 8 models. Assuming that capability is a must during internal testing. I now believe the feature holds for both the standard Apple Watch Series 8 and a new Rugged version aimed at extreme sports athletes.”

In terms of design, the smartwatch may not see any major design update in terms of size as well. Also, previous reports have suggested that the Watch Series 8 will get a car crash detection feature.
