While the feature is not exactly high-tech like the blood pressure monitor and the blood sugar sensor initial rumors spotted, it still brings an additional tool for users to experience.
It is the infrared temperature sensor, and it will help on looking at one’s condition via their body heat, may it be lower or higher than regular readings. The new feature may help have more information on one’s body, and different diagnostics will help point to a specific occurrence in one’s body, courtesy of the new technology.
Infrared Temperature Health Sensor on Galaxy Watch?
According to Android Central, Samsung would not be the first manufacturer to bring the temperature sensor on a tech wearable. Still, it will pioneer a more accurate one on the watch. That is because of its infrared capabilities that focus on situating itself on a person’s wrist for a precise read, allegedly coming in the fall season.
Smartwatch and its Tech Capabilities
Smartwatches are devices that tell more than the time and notifications for users now, as it focuses on many monitoring features for health and fitness. Essentially, various takes on smartwatches include the Android operating system from Google, Apple’s watchOS, and the many variations on its systems to power the device.
Samsung is rivals with many tech companies that focus on these wearable technologies, including Fitbit, Garmin, Fossil, Apple, and even the famous Swiss luxury watchmaker, TAG Heuer. These are not the only companies that feature a smartwatch on their lineup, as other smartphone manufacturers also bring their device versions to users.
Technology and health are heavily working together to give the public what they need to monitor their health and keep up with the times to assist the medical field. Samsung and other manufacturers’ smartwatches are shaping to be a massive help for the future, especially with the many features it tries to bring for the public’s use.
