As far as we can at Bloomberg, Apple is working on a new feature that will allow monitor users' sleep through Apple Watch. According to this publication, Apple has been using this sleep function for several months among a small group of users, according to people related to this project.
If the functionality, which currently is in its beginnings, offers a positive result, the Cupertino-based company could add it to the Apple Watch in 2020, according to some of the people who are collaborating on the test.
It seems that so far, monitor sleep it has not been a priority for Apple, Since, as we can see, he initially focused on monitoring our heart to detect possible diseases, a feature that we have talked about on several occasions and that has helped many people to know that they had a heart disease without their knowledge.
The manufacturer Fitbit, has long offered a sleep monitoring system, a functionality that to be available in watchOS, forces us to have to resort to third-party applications, since it is not available natively. Apparently the reason for the lack of this feature is for good reason: the battery life of the first generation barely lasted the 18 hours that the manufacturer promised, forcing users to charge the device while they slept.
It is more than likely that Apple is making the technology of the Beddit company, a company that he acquired a little over a year ago that offered a sensor strip for monitoring sleep. This strip to monitor sleep is still on sale and in fact, a few months ago, it launched the second generation.
