As the launch of Apple’s iPhone11 is coming near more and more reports are emerging on the internet around the event. Like always this time also the smartphone company is planning to launch Apple Watch alongside its most awaited smartphone. Now a report suggests that the company is working on a sleep tracking feature for its Apple Watch series. The new feature is called “Time in Bed tracking.” It is internally codenamed as Burrito and will allow the users to track the quality of sleep, movement, heart rate, and noises. And as usual, it will be accessible via Health app and a new Sleep app.
As the name suggests with the use of ‘Time in Bed’ tracking feature the user will be able to wear the Apple watch while sleeping. Wearing the Apple Watch to bed will allow it to track the user’s quality of sleep with the use of multiple sensors and inputs on it. The data then can be accessed in the Health app as well as on a new dedicated Sleep app for the Apple watch.
When wearing the Watch during bedtime, if the user wakes up and starts their day before their alarm goes off, it will automatically turn off the alarm. The alarm will also play only on Apple Watch, using the iPhone as a backup. There will also be an option to use a silent alarm that only vibrates the Apple Watch. The new bedtime system will enable Do Not Disturb automatically when the user goes to bed.
While many users have a habit to charge their device at night Apple Watch will come with a feature that will strike a chord to charge their watch before they go to bed so that they can wear it during sleep.
However, it is not confirmed whether Apple Watch sleep tracking feature will be available on all Apple Watch models or it will only be made available to the new Watches that are expected to be unveiled on September 10 when the iPhone 11 gets launched.
Previous reports suggest that the upcoming Apple watch will be launched in two casings, titanium as well as ceramic. The upgraded version of the watch will arrive in 40mm along with 44mm sizes similar to the Apple Watch Series 4. However, the company only offered the ceramic casing for Series 2 and Series 3 watches, but now the new Apple Watch Series will be arriving in both titanium and ceramic casings.
