Apple is about to present the new Apple Watch 8. Few details have come out of this new range of smartwatches. However, there are many rumors about what it will be like, the different versions it will have and the new features it will offer. A few days ago, the journalist from Bloomberg Mark Gurman advanced that the new Apple device will detect sudden changes in temperature. Now, he has revealed that it will also have a rugged model aimed at users who practice extreme sports.

The Cupertino company is studying the marketing of three smart watches this year, as analyst Ming Chi Kuo announced at the end of last year in a note for investors collected by MacRumors. Specifically, the specialist indicated that the new Apple Watch series would be made up of three models: Apple Watch Series 8, a new Apple Watch SE and a third watch, designed for extreme sports.

Analyst Mark Gurman has confirmed that Apple plans to launch a smartwatch with “the biggest screen to date, a bigger battery and a tough metal case.” This new smartwatch, which will be announced later this year, along with the other two models, will be a rugged version of the Apple Watch and its screen will be approximately 7 percent larger than that of the Apple Watch Series 7.

Due to this size, Gurman believes that Apple can take advantage of this larger surface area to display more information and metrics related to training. Likewise, the analyst has revealed that the panel of this wearable It will have a resolution of about 410 x 502 pixels and will preserve the general sharpness of current models and will have greater autonomy to adapt to long periods of training.

As announced a few days ago, Gurman has indicated that this model will include the ability to measure sudden changes in the user’s temperature and detect if they have a fever. However, analysts warn that the watch will be able to detect temperature changes, but it will not give us a specific reading, as a conventional thermometer does.

That Apple wants to integrate a body temperature sensor into one of its Apple Watch models is nothing new. Rumors about this new feature have been circulating for a long time. Bloomberg already assured last year that this feature would arrive together with the glucose meter in 2022, that is, in the Apple Watch Series 8. Shortly after, the Wall Street Journal confirmed that information.

Gurman has also pointed out that the three new Apple smart watch models will use S8 processors, which anticipate a performance similar to the S7 chip currently incorporated in the Apple Watch Series 7. Of course, this Apple Watch Series 8 is also expected for extreme sports be more expensive than the conventional stainless steel Apple Watch, which today costs 729 euros.

It should be remembered that the announcement of a new Apple smart watch more geared towards extreme sports would coincide in time with the arrival of watchOS 9, the new version of the operating system, which the manufacturer presented at the beginning of last month within the framework of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
