Apple Watch 8 could measure blood alcohol level in 2022

We are in 2021, and about 4 months to see what the nuevo Apple Watch Series 7 -Nowadays the newest model is the Series 6. But as always happens with technology, the next generation is already being looked at, towards what you will present next year when you have not even officially presented this year. Thus, we already have data on the Apple Watch Series 8, which would be released in 2022, more than a year from now.

Apple Watch Series 8

One of the leaked rumors / data about this year’s Apple Watch Series 7 is that would be able to measure blood sugar level, which would make it an ideal device for diabetics. But the British newspaper The Telegraph has pointed out what The Apple Watch Series 8 will have this function and will also be able to measure the level of alcohol in the blood, turning the wearable into a smart breathalyzer.

What is The Telegraph based on? On some SEC files (the United States Securities and Exchange Commission) that Apple is the largest customer of Rockley Photonics, a company that focuses on sensors that track blood sugar, blood pressure and alcohol levels. Furthermore, the CEO of Rockley Photonics allegedly claimed that su technology would be in consumer products as of 2022.

Of course they have not specifically said that it is an Apple product, but considering that Apple is responsible for most of Rockley Photonics’ revenue in the last two years, the idea does not sound so absurd.

If this technology reaches an Apple product, the obvious candidate is the Apple WatchSince the company has put a lot of effort to turn it into a health and fitness device. Blood sugar seems the most likely, as it has been rumored before, but you may be able to track other things, such as the aforementioned alcohol level.

Blood sugar monitoring (also known as glucose monitoring) could be especially useful for diabetics, as they need to watch her closely. But it’s something anyone who cares about their body’s performance might want to monitor as well, so it would be a very useful feature for a future Apple Watch.

As we say, we have not even seen the Series 7 yet, so it is early to talk about the Series 8. However, if the Apple Watch wins the function of being able to measure blood sugar this year, it would not be so crazy to think that in 2022 you can do the same with alcohol.
