The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, the next smartwatch in the South Korean tech giant’s smartwatch lineup, is rumored to feature a thermometer that can be used to track skin temperature, which can help detect early signs of infection and track ovulation cycles. However, Samsung doesn’t seem to be able to add this feature to its upcoming smartwatch. According to renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has also tried to bring the feature to its next-generation smartwatches, but has yet to achieve any success. So, he thinks, if Apple can’t do the same with their smartwatches, neither can Samsung.

Samsung reportedly had trouble writing a temperature-reading algorithm for the Galaxy Watch 5, almost similar to what Apple experienced when it added the feature to the Apple Watch 7 series. However, this process is said to be necessary to enable hardware sensors to provide accurate readings. Previous reports from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that Apple is working on adding the same body temperature measurement feature to the Apple Watch Series 8. Kuo said that Apple did not add a body temperature feature to the Apple Watch Series 7 due to a lack of qualified algorithms.

Kuo claimed in a tweet that “Apple has given up on implementing temperature readings for this year’s 7th-gen Apple Watch (which looks like a ‘better luck next year’ scenario), and speculated that Samsung won’t be able to do the same for the Watch 5. “

The challenge facing Samsung and Apple is partly to the fact that surface skin temperature can vary due to external factors. At the same time, both companies are trying to develop hardware that can read surface temperatures to allow their smartwatches to get accurate readings.

Furthermore, Apple may solve this dilemma with the Apple Watch 8 series before Samsung and bring this feature to market. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 may offer other new features and designs, but if recent claims don’t hold, the smartwatch probably won’t have a body temperature sensor.

A recent report claims that the 40mm and 44mm models of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will likely have slightly larger batteries compared to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series. Reports say the Galaxy Watch 5 40mm (EB-BR900ABY) will feature a 276mAh battery, up from 247mAh (+29mAh). The larger Watch 5 44mm (EB-BR910ABY) will have a 397mAh battery, up from 361mAh (+36mAh). The report adds that the Galaxy Watch 5 generation won’t be released until the second half of this year.
