The latest rumor regarding the Apple Watch from AppleInsider has given a very good reason to buy one of these devices now!
According to a new report from AppleInsider (via Czech website Letem Svetem Applem), Apple is working on adding new health tracking functionalities to the Apple Watch with new “smart band.” These new sensor laden smart bands are expected to connect to the hidden data port on the Apple Watch and will be able to monitor users’ blood oxygen, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and body temperature.
According to the report:
It was said that these sensors must be in the band anyhow and cannot be a part of the watch to give accurate readings. For example, a body temperature sensor would be affected by heat from the components inside the watch, and must be placed on the opposite end of the wrist.
The sources allegedly said that Apple is planning to launch its first sensor bands for the Apple Watch in early 2016. The company is said to be working on multiple smart bands that will be available in a variety of styles and configurations.
Here’s hoping this is one rumor that comes through.
