The Apple Watch 6 is scheduled to arrive this fall, but as great as this could be, the device might miss a rumored feature – the blood pressure tracking.
While the blood pressure tracking feature hasn’t been confirmed, a patent unveiled Apple is working on its version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3’s standout functionality. Also, popular tipster Komiya, said the feature isn’t ready yet for the Apple Watch 6. Here is what you need to know.
Could Apple Miss This Sleek Feature?
Tipster Komiya claims that Apple Watch blood pressure tracking is under development, but is still unclear when the feature will kick in the Watch series.
We should take Komiya’s leak with a grain of salt because it seems like a rationale situation. The blood pressure tracking is a sleek feature for a smartwatch, but it’s very advanced. As we’ve seen with the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, a precise blood pressure detection needs frequent calibration.
Then, there’s, of course, the necessity of FDA-approval. Samsung’s blook pressure tracking is only available in South Korea. Apple most likely will wait until the FDA approves its attempt at such a feature to actually confirms it for an Apple Watch. So, it’s better not to have many expectations at the moment.
Either way, we’ll find more details very soon. The much-awaited Apple Watch 6 is scheduled to debut next month (September) with some killer upgrades and other new features. The device will also ship with the latest watchOS 7, the company’s best smartwatch software so far. It will include functions such as hand-washing detection, sleep tracking, new mobility features, and more.
As disappointing as the news of the blood pressure tracking feature not coming for the upcoming series of Apple smartwatches, it’s somehow understandable. The company should take its time and find the best solutions to calibrate the feature and bring it in the best terms.
