Apple postpones support for blood pressure monitoring in new Apple Watch

According to information that came out last month, the new Apple Watch Series 10 smartwatches, which should be presented by the end of 2024, will receive larger display and thinner body. However, blood pressure and apnea monitoring will not be included in this year's models.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman also noted that 2024 could be a special year for the Apple Watch line, as it is exactly 10 years since their first launch However, the first shipments of the Apple Watch started in 2015, so from a certain point of view, next year can also be considered an anniversary year.

The new Apple Watch Series 10 models are expected with a larger display and a thinner case for an improved design. They will also get an improved processor with the Ultra 3 model. However, there are currently no plans to introduce more advanced health monitoring features that would use artificial intelligence technologies.

The blood pressure monitoring function, for example, will not implemented due to technical limitations on measurement accuracy, which is a challenge for Apple. So is the apnea monitoring feature, which is also in the works due to legal disputes and technical difficulties.

Apple is also considering releasing new versions of the lower-priced Watch SE models with a plastic case, which could allow the cost to be reduced in compared to competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch FE.

So, despite the significant design and performance changes announced, the new Apple Watch 10 series will not include advanced health monitoring features such as blood pressure monitoring and apnea due to technical and legal restrictions.
