Apple Watch Will Soon Be Able To Track Your Sleep Patterns

How many of you are fans of Apple Watch? The amazing gadget by Apple is all set for a new update that will incorporate sleep tracking in it. According to the reports so far, you won’t have to wait for long before this feature becomes available.

In fact, as per rumors, the feature of sleep tracking for Apple Watch might be announced next week at the September 10th event of Apple. Some details of this feature of sleep tracking are not surprising, but you should know that it is not just a throwaway addition.

The technology would be dependent completely on the motion of Apple Watch along with heart rate and noise detection for determining sleep quality. In a nutshell, you won’t be needing a Beddit sensor for filling in the gaps. This is not quite shocking because other wearables have already done this quite successfully. However, you would have a dedicated app on your Apple Watch apart from the rest-quality in the Health app.

You will receive reminders for charging your watch before you head to sleep. You will also have the option of setting up a watch-only wakeup alarm that also comes with a vibration-only option. Furthermore, you can have a designated watch only for bedtime. The aspect of this sleep tracking feature for Apple Watch that remains unknown is whether you will need a new wristwear or not. Apple generally links new Watch features to new hardware and might even have fresh devices on their way. However, sleep tracking function, as has been described, will probably not need a hardware update. This doesn’t mean that anyone running watchOS 6 will get sleep tracking.

What worries us more is that users might not be in a rush to upgrade only for the sake of sleep tracking feature on Apple Watch. However, we will have to wait and see until the Apple event of September 10th to determine how Apple plays its cards.
