Wait for More Sensors and Smart Bands
Are you hoping for an Apple Watch that can take your blood sugar, tell you more about your health and become a smarter companion? If so, keep waiting for a new Apple Watch.
Apple may be working in a way to track glucose without pricking your skin, it's not clear if it will make it into this watch. On the plus side, watchOS 4 adds Native Bluetooth support which, allows users to pair the Dexcom G5 directly to the Apple Watch.
Even if glucose monitoring doesn't make it into the new version, many reports suggest a new Apple Watch could include interchangeable smart bands. BGR suggests one would be a camera band while another could be a backup battery band. Support for smart bands could open up the field for sensors in new ways, allowing Apple and third parties to work on FDA approval after the release of the Apple Watch.
