New Sleep App For Apple Watch Spotted
A twitter user, Daniel Marcinkowski has spotted a Sleep App for the Apple Watch mentioned in an App store listing. According to the reports presented by MacRumors, the feature popped on the company’s pre-installed Alarms app with a “Sleep” label and text reading “Set your bedtime and wake up in the Sleep app”.
There has been no information about the Sleep app in the new WatchOS 6.0.1 update (or WatchOS 6.1 beta), but recent evidence proves that there is a presence of an internal build of iOS 13. A sleep-tracking feature was spotted which is referred to as “Time in Bed tracking”. This denotes that one code string noted users could track their sleep and “get woken up silently” by wearing their Apple Watch to bed.
9to5Mac reported that Apple has been working to develop this sleep-tracking feature so that it can monitor sleep quality through the sensors within the Apple Watch Series. The new feature aimed at giving the user’s the liberty to wear the Apple Watch in their sleep so that the user’s movement, heart rate, and noise will be taken into consideration to monitor the sleep quality. This will also be available in the new Sleep app for the Watch, which will deliver an overview of sleep patterns with bedtime reminders.
Added to this, there have been expectations that the other than the Sleep App and Time in Bed feature, there is a possibility of a new watch face. According to the rumours swirling around, Apple is testing sleep tracking on the Apple Watch and plans to roll out the feature by 2020.
