The next-generation Apple Watch will add a mechanism to know whether the user has any health problems or not, helping to optimize personal health monitoring.
newsletter Power On In his latest, expert Mark Gurman from Bloomberg said that the Apple Watch launched next year will have two new functions that allow the detection of sleep apnea and hypertension.
Sleep apnea is a condition in which the user stops breathing at night while sleeping and is forced to use medical equipment to assist breathing at those times. Meanwhile, hypertension is a more serious health problem than people think because it can be fatal and affects many people around the world. Finding out if you have any of these health problems is key to taking care of yourself and possibly even saving your life.
These functions will complement other functions that have saved the lives of Apple Watch users, such as accident detection, fall detection, heart rate monitoring, or electrocardiogram.
In addition, the product also allows users to monitor their blood sugar index if they have diabetes to be able to control the insulin dosage needed. That’s why Apple is looking to create a non-invasive glucose sensor for the Apple Watch, although it’s currently unclear when the company will deploy it and how exactly the functionality will work.
With the above features, this is probably one of the big updates for the new Apple Watch next year.
