Tech, Apple watch update

New Apple watch set to disappoint, why?

As excitement builds for the Series 10 announcement, Apple seems to be tempering expectations for its new release this coming September.

Apple's upcoming watch is poised to disappoint enthusiasts, as recent reports suggest it won't feature the AI-driven functionalities showcased at the company's developer conference last month, nor the anticipated health-related capabilities like blood pressure or glucose monitoring.

Mark Gorman, a technology journalist at Bloomberg known for his close ties to Apple executives, indicated this morning that despite early hopes, the next model won't deliver many of the expected enhancements, mako news reports.

According to Gorman, the future watches will sport larger screens but won't undergo the drastic design overhaul initially anticipated. A new chip is expected to boost speed and pave the way for future AI software integration, though these features won't be available in the initial release.

Apple had aimed to introduce advanced health monitoring features this year, such as rapid blood pressure measurement and detecting severe sleep deprivation, but Gorman reports that these technologies haven't yet proven themselves and won't debut in the Series 10.

Moreover, it remains uncertain whether Apple will designate the Series 10 as a celebratory model marking a decade since the product's launch. Given that the first watch was announced in 2014 but hit the market in 2015, Apple could potentially delay a more significant update until next year, possibly incorporating the AI capabilities planned across its product line, including enhanced Siri and messaging features.

Apple is hopeful that by September, some long-term technologies in development, such as a glucose meter for real-time sugar level monitoring, will mature into viable products. Positive results from early trials suggest promising developments for future watches, potentially offering revolutionary benefits for those managing high sugar levels and to better track the users general health, even if not in the upcoming model.
