Apple Watch will detect hypertension and sleep apnea!



The Apple Watch remains one of the best smartwatches you can buy, and is often an obvious recommendation for anyone looking for a useful, complementary accessory for their iPhone. The Apple Watch Series 9 is the latest. Meanwhile, Apple may be working to make the Apple Watch even more useful, as the next version may have hypertension and sleep apnea detection.

According to a report from Bloomberg, the Apple Watch will be the company’s big focus in 2024. We’ve already seen mentions of the new tenth anniversary design with new health features. The latest information says the same.

The report mentions that there will be at least one Apple Watch model in 2024 with a new look. Additionally, two of the big health additions are expected to be hypertension detection and sleep apnea detection. The smartwatch will detect early symptoms and advise its users to take follow-up tests for these conditions.

We’ve already seen these features on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 6, but only in some regions. The Galaxy Watch can monitor blood pressure, but it’s a deliberate process that requires calibration and manual testing. The watch does not do this in an integrated way, so it cannot detect any change in patterns over time. However, the sleep apnea detection feature works better as it automatically detects sleep apnea by monitoring blood oxygen levels during sleep.

It remains to be seen how Apple will implement and integrate these features into the Apple Watch. In classic Apple fashion, we assume functions will be limited to the new 2024 Apple Watches, even if some functions don’t require new sensors.

In other words, if you are thinking about buying an Apple Watch now and happen to already have an older one, it might be worth waiting to understand for sure what the new version will bring.
