A new leak lends further support to blood-oxygen tracking in the Apple Watch 6
The next-gen Apple Watch has been linked to health-tracking features that outshadow those of the current generation in the past. Now, a new report from DigiTimes may corroborate them. It asserts that the 6th series of these wearables will indeed support blood-oxygen measurements, the latest word in wearable-assisted well-being management.
The report also reiterates an earlier leak pointing to the addition of sleep tracking to the Apple Watch 6. It is also said to support advanced heart-related metrics, which may go beyond the ability to read and record electrocardiograms and blood-pressure data to detecting the specific condition of atrial fibrillation (AF).
The outlet also now claims that the company ASE Technology is the one that has secured a contract for the system-in-packages (SiPs) that might help deliver all these putative new functions. The wearable to contain them is not expected to be here in order to confirm or deny these rumors until the autumn of 2020, however.
