Apple Watch Series 6: What to expect
Next Apple Watch (possibly a)) Is still months away from making its debut with the rumor In the fall, but a lot of rumors and some clues are hidden In the meantime to unpack. Below we have compiled a roundup of commendable and compelling new features for the Apple Watch Series 6.
Design: A round Apple Watch, but not this year
Chances are, this year’s Apple Watch will look a lot like its predecessors: a squarish body with rounded edges and an OLED screen that curves on the sides. As in previous years, Apple may offer some minor upgrades such as increasing the screen size (to show the faces that come with the new watch).), Separate content for the frame and a few more watch band options, but so far there’s not much evidence of a radical redesign for the Apple Watch … yet.
Rumors of a circularHave been circling for a few years and Apple has also released a pair of Apple Watch patents that show what a round display might look like. But the existence of a patent does not guarantee that Apple will use it in a product, and this change will require Apple to rework the hardware and software of the watch, so it may take a few more years to become a reality.
Pulse oximeter to measure blood oxygen levels
Health has been a major growth category for the Apple Watch since its inception, most recently adding native sleep tracking, mobility metrics, and hearing health to WatchOS 7, and we expect the trend to continue. The major health feature for Series 6 this year could be SpO2 tracking, or the ability to monitor oxygen saturation in the blood.
According to 9to5Mac, the iOS 14 code snippet suggests that the next Apple Watch will not only be able to detect blood oxygen levels, but if it detects levels below a “healthy” range, send an alert that That already does with the clock. High and low heart rate alerts. Blood oxygen levels are usually measured using A.To do this at the tip of the finger, and at the wrist, it is very likely that Apple will need to add new hardware to the Watch, making this Series 6 exclusive.
This would be a good time, as some doctors are recommending, And people have started .
More robust sleep tracking
Apple Watch (Series 3 and higher) will finally be found7 in the fall, but the Series 6 can improve sleep by improving battery life and tracking blood oxygen levels at night.
Unlike Sleep Apps and Apple Watch competitors, which give quality of sleep and breakdown of steps, the Apple Watch mainly focuses on the time you sleep. If Series 6 has SpO2 tracking, it may be able to see estimated oxygen variations at night and help users see sleep-related conditions such as sleep apnea.
Blood pressure without phlegm
An Apple patent recently discovered by Apple Insider suggests that the company may also add blood pressure monitoring to Apple Watch models in the future. According to the patent, the Watch will use a combination of new sensors and software to measure blood pressure without relying on traditional arm cuffs.
The existence of a patent, while promising, does not guarantee that the facility will become a reality. Even if that happens, the recent filing date suggests that it is not ready to launch in Series 6 this year.
A child-friendly Apple Watch
There are also new devices for parents in the allegedly leaked iOS 14 code. Instead of giving iPhones to their children, parents wishing to stay connected to their children can install a second Apple Watch (completely different from their own) using their iPhone and Apple ID as hosts. It will also tell parents what kind of materials their children can use on the watch, such as emergency contacts and music.
With a feature called SchoolTime, parents can also determine which apps can be used to limit distractions in the classroom.
It would also mean adopting certain health facilities for younger users. According to 9to5Mac, the ring system (used for activity tracking) will be based on different matrices. The red trick ring, for example, will track active minutes rather than active calories as it happens with adults. The Watch will encourage children to move forward by giving them virtual rewards when they participate in sports or outdoor activities.
Keeping an eye on panic attacks and stress
The Apple Watch Series 6 will reportedly come with several mental health monitoring features, including the ability to detect when the wearer is about to experience it?(Another timely feature, if it drops out during a global pandemic). The rumor was also mentioned in an April 30 leak, which referred to “detecting mental health abnormalities”.
