Since the acquisition of sleep monitoring company Beddit in 2017, rumors that Apple will launch the Apple Watch sleep tracking feature have not been interrupted. According to 9to5Mac today quoted Apple's internal information source, Apple has developed this feature, the fastest or next week.
According to reports, Apple's sleep tracking feature for Apple Watch does not require additional hardware support. The new feature's internal codename is "Burrito" and will be officially named "Time in Bed tracking".
This feature allows users to choose to wear an Apple Watch to sleep, so that Apple Watch can use a variety of sensors to track the user's sleep quality while the user is sleeping, parameters include the user's (turn over) action, heart rate and noise (should mean snoring) . The user's sleep quality data can be viewed in the health app on the user's iPhone, and Apple will bring a new sleep app to Apple Watch.
In addition, Apple also considered the problem of wearing the Apple Watch while sleeping, which will take up the night charging time. For this purpose, a special function has been developed to remind the user to charge the Apple Watch in advance, helping the user to arrange the charging time reasonably.
The report also mentioned that when sleeping with the Apple Watch, if the user wakes up before the alarm starts, the system will automatically turn off the alarm. And the alarm clock will only be enabled on Apple Watch, and the iPhone is only used as a backup. In addition, the user can also choose the silent mode, which is only reminded by the vibration of the Apple Watch, so that it will not disturb the family. Finally, the new sleep system automatically enables DND when the user is at bed, and brings a new sleep tracking module to the Apple Watch module dial.
It is still unclear whether Apple will eventually limit this feature to the new Apple Watch, or it can support older models at the same time. The recent rumor about the new Apple Watch is that Apple will release a new Apple Watch line at the "By innovation only" special event at 1 am on September 11th, and possibly bring a new titanium and ceramic casing type.
Update: Guilherme Rambo of 9to5Mac also broke the news that next week Apple will launch a new Apple Watch module dial (up to 5 modules), inspired by the classic Nike Windrunner running jacket, but the dial may be limited to Apple Watch Nike model.
