Apple Watch

The Apple Watch: a popular accessory, an iPhone‘s loyal companion, and arguably one of the best smartwatches on the market. But Apple isn’t content with just being good. Reports of an even more better iteration is coming with important features like hypertension and sleep apnea detection.

Apple Watch: a health-focused features coming soon

Apple WatchOS 10 new software

According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple’s next smartwatch will be defined by a laser focus on the Watch. Reports of a 10th-anniversary redesign coupled with cutting-edge health features have been simmering for a while. And this report adds fuel to the fire. Mark Gurman, the trusted tech insider behind the report, claims that at least one model will flaunt a sleek new look. Alongside two important health additions: hypertension and sleep apnea detection.

Imagine your Apple Watch silently monitoring your blood pressure throughout the day, automatically detecting potential spikes, and nudging you to seek medical advice. This isn’t a futuristic pipe dream; the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 already offers similar functionality, albeit with caveats. While the Galaxy Watch can measure blood pressure, it requires manual calibration and specific testing ā€“ not the seamless, proactive approach we expect from Apple.

Sleep apnea detection, however, seems more refined on the Samsung device. By analyzing blood oxygen levels during sleep, it can automatically flag potential sleep apnea episodes. Apple, renowned for its intuitive tech, is likely to take this feature even further. Offering actionable insights and personalized sleep coaching alongside detection.

One lingering question is: how will Apple integrate these features? Will they be exclusive to the next models, even though a feature like sleep apnea tracking arguably doesn’t necessitate new hardware? In true Apple fashion, exclusivity seems likely, even if it means holding back potentially life-saving functionalities.
