Apple Watch with blood pressure monitoring, sleep apnea detection coming in 2024: Mark Gurman

Apple recently launched its Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 along with the iPhone 15 series. It is reported that the company is working on new features which are likely to be included in the upcoming models. Now, analyst Mark Gurman has reiterated these claims and suggested that the Cupertino-based tech giant is likely to bring several upgrades to the next Apple Watch models. This is said because the current lineup is not expected to perform well in the market as it does not offer anything much different from the older models.

Gurman, in his latest weekly Newsletter, Power On said that the Apple Watch will likely be equipped with hypertension and sleep apnea detection features in the future. These are expected to help alert users if they suspect any conditions and recommend seeking further medical attention. Apple was also previously reported to be working on a non-invasive blood sugar monitoring feature.

According to Gurman, the inclusion of these features is expected to make future Apple Watch models seem more worthy of an upgrade. He noted how the new chipset and brighter display or even the Watch Series 9 offering double tap gestures compared to its previous models do not provide an incentive for customers to upgrade to the new model. He said that one of the upcoming Apple Watch models is also likely to be launched with a new look.

Apple Watch Series 9 in India starts at Rs. Its 41mm aluminum body option is priced at Rs 41,900. The 45mm version of the same is listed at Rs. 44,900. The 41mm and 45mm stainless steel finish options of the Watch Series 9 are priced at Rs. 70,900 and Rs. 75,900 respectively. Meanwhile, the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is available for Rs. 89,900.

The Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 currently help track a user’s blood oxygen saturation levels, measure heat rate, notify irregular heart rhythms, and act as an ECG monitor. Both watches are powered by a custom S9 SiP chipset and run WatchOS 10. The Watch Series 9 claims to be Apple’s first carbon-neutral product. It also features a “double tap” gesture that lets users tap their thumb and index finger together to answer or end calls, stop timers, snooze alarms, control music, access the camera, and more. allows for.
