The future Apple Watch is supposed to change the rules of the game for users’ health.
According to a new report from Bloombergan upcoming version of Apple’s popular product could feature blood pressure monitoring and sleep apnea detection by 2024.
Apple’s upcoming blood pressure sensor will reportedly detect when a user’s blood pressure has risen, the outlet said, but won’t show specific numbers.
The app will instead ask the user to talk to their doctor or check their blood pressure in some other way. However, Apple hopes that a future watch will be able to share exact numbers, Bloomberg He said.
Apple did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on its 2024 product plans.

The 2024 Apple Watch will also reportedly track breathing and sleeping habits, Bloomberg added, with a device that can predict whether a user has sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during the night, according to The Mayo Clinic.
Once the watch detects a potential case of sleep apnea, Bloomberg reported that the device will recommend the watch wearer to speak to a doctor for further confirmation.
Along with the Apple Watch, the outlet also reported that the well-known tech company is looking to turn its Vision Pro headset into a health device as well.
Per Bloomberg, Apple is working on new “anti-anxiety” and “enhanced meditation” features for the product, which is currently slated for release in early 2024. Apple wants the product to become a virtual reality system that will “enhance positive thinking and improve mental health.”
Apple also plans to use the sensors inside the Vision Pro to determine cognitive health data by scanning the user’s eyes, the company said.
