Apple Planning Multiple New Apple Watch Health Features, Including Temperature and Blood-Pressure Monitoring

Apple is planning to add blood-pressure monitoring and a thermometer to the Apple Watch, according to the Wall Street Journal.



Sources who claim to be familiar with Apple’s plans, with access to internal company documents, told the Wall Street Journal that the company is planning to add a number of significant new health features to the Apple Watch. Most of these new health monitoring functions are not expected to arrive before 2022.

Apple is said to be considering adding a thermometer to the Apple Watch for health monitoring purposes as soon as next year. The thermometer’s features are purportedly based around fertility planning and improved detection of patterns when tracking sleep.

The blood-pressure monitoring feature reportedly detects when pressure is increasing. Further in the future, the company apparently has plans to implement detection for sleep apnea and diabetes, as well as provide medical guidance when it detects low blood-oxygen levels.
