The work did not stop in Cupertino, The report states that they have developed a new sensor to determine if a user has high blood pressure.

The function will indicate if a user has early hypertension instead of displaying a traditional systolic and/or diastolic reading. This feature has been spread by various outlets and is known for the work requires 4 years of development.
On another side, blood sugar measurement is another feature that promises to give a lot to tell.

This measure is said to be non-invasive.although it is believed that it also takes years of work to complete it flawlessly.
What’s next in health features for Apple Watch
Short term, those in Cupertino will focus on offering health functions related to physical activity, sleep, administration for people who use medication and some special sections for women. It is said that for the latter, Apple could include, in a first phase, a body temperature meter only to determine fertility planning. Let’s also not forget that 3 new models of the Apple watch are expected.
On the software side, watchOS 9 will be reinforced in the detection of atrial fibrillation with a new measure. During a defined period of time, you will be able to know how long a person has been in atrial fibrillation. For users who use the smartwatch for daily exercise, more training types and additional measures will be activated as needed.
All of this will be complemented by iOS 16, which will update the Health app to have better control of the sleep monitoring indicator. A final closing data, some employees are not satisfied with the progress made by Apple lately according to Gurman. There is not enough risk taking in the Health development team, in addition to the fact that they see an excessive delay in the improvements promised.
