Apple Watch Series 10 could finally offer this Samsung health feature


Smartwatches these days are pretty adept at tracking our health. This includes heart rate monitoring, checking our hearts for abnormal rhythms, tracking our sleep cycles, and more. But there are other health functions that we would like to see, and Apple could finally bring a feature like blood pressure monitoring to the Apple Watch Series 10.

This is according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his latest Power On newsletter. It seems that the analyst is pretty optimistic that blood pressure monitoring could come to the next-gen Apple Watch. Gurman also notes that this is a hardware feature. This means that older Apple Watches won’t be getting it via software update.

Before you get too excited, it won’t be a full-blown blood pressure monitoring tool. Instead, it will be used just to inform users if their blood pressure levels are trending upwards. Apparently future iterations will become more accurate, but the initial launch is more for alerts.

Apple wouldn’t be the first to introduce blood pressure monitoring support to smartwatches. Samsung has a similar feature for the Galaxy Watch 5 and 6 which relies on users calibrating it with a blood pressure monitoring cuff. Huawei also has something similar in the Huawei Watch D that uses an inflatable cuff.

It remains to be seen if this rumor is true, so take it with a grain of salt and we should have more details later this fall.
