The Apple Watch has long been considered much more than a simple smartwatch. Over the years, a specific set of features have allowed this gadget to save many lives.

For its sixth generation, another important addition is promised in this field. It is almost certain that the Apple Watch Series 6 will come with a sensor for measuring oxygen saturation levels.

Digitimes’ latest report states that the Apple Watch Series 6 will come with a new sensor for this measurement. Something that was already expected after there was no announcement on the topic at this year’s WWDC.

Oxygen saturation levels below a certain level can be an indicator of respiratory problems. A condition that should not be overlooked as it can impair brain and cardiac function.

Combining this new technology with the already implemented fall detection and cardiac monitoring, the Apple Watch will certainly continue to help save many lives. Incidentally, this has been one of the great focuses of the American in the development of this gadget.

What to expect from the Apple Watch Series 6

For now, rumors surrounding the upcoming Apple Watch have been very timid. In that sense, there is still not much that is known about the new smartwatch.

One of the novelties that is already expected is the monitoring of native sleep. Users have been asking for it for a long time and Apple confirmed, at this year’s WWDC, the inclusion of that possibility.

Another of the rumors is the possibility that the Apple Watrch Series 6 can predict panic attacks. Something that has generated a lot of doubt within the community about how the gadget will be able to predict such a condition.

The presentation of the new Apple Watch usually happens when the new iPhones are unveiled. With the postponement of the launch of the iPhone 12 already confirmed by Apple, it is expected that your smart watch will also arrive later than usual.
