According to a report on Monday from 9to5Mac, Apple is preparing to add a new feature to the Watch that will allow it to monitor your sleep. Codenamed "Burrito" the new feature will be able to measure the quality of its wearer's rest using the wearable's various sensors and inputs, including tracking your movement, heart rate and "noises." The information would be accessible through the Health app on an iPhone or in a "new Sleep app for the Apple Watch."

The Apple Watch is tipped to get built-in sleep tracking features with the Cupertino company said to be in After Apple acquired sleep tracker company Beddit in 2017, we anticipated this was a move to finally join the likes of Hopefully this will force android to add sleep tracking to Wear OS as well.

The feature will be able to turn off an alarm if it senses you've already woken up before the alarm was set to go off. 9to5Mac, quoting unnamed sources inside Apple, also reports that the Watch will have a "silent alarm" feature that will only vibrate on the Apple Watch, as opposed to playing a sound on the Watch or an iPhone.

Those with multiple Apple Watches will be able to choose one for sleep tracking, allowing their other Watch to be charged overnight. A new complication, or watch face widget, will also be available for quickly checking sleep performance.

It is unclear if Apple will be making this a new feature on a Series 5 version or if it will come as an update to existing devices.

Apple Watch may get sleep tracking as soon as next week

Apple Watch may get sleep tracking as soon as next week The Apple Watch might include sleep tracking sooner than you think. Sources talking to 9to5Mac claim to have significant details as to how the health feature will work, with word that it might be announced "as early as next week" at the September 10th event. Some details aren't surprising, but they suggest this isn't just a throwaway addition. The technology would rely solely on the watch's motion, heart rate and noise detection to gauge the quality of your sleep. You wouldn't need a Beddit sensor to fill in the gaps.

While we wait for a built-in solution, the Pillow and AutoSleep apps are your best choices for adding sleep tracking to your Apple Watch .

Earlier this year, a report from Bloomberg claimed that Apple is working on adding sleep tracking features to Apple Watch . In a separate report , MacRumors says it has seen reference to the feature in an internal build of iOS 13, including text strings like, “you can also track your sleep and get woken

While potentially a first for the Apple Watch, Apple does have some background in sleep tracking, having acquired Beddit, the maker of a $150 device that goes between your sheet and mattress to monitor your vitals as you sleep, in 2017.

The company is rumored to be planning new titanium and ceramic variants of the Watch potentially for as soon as next week's press event at its headquarters, but it is similarly unknown if those new case options will have more powerful internals or are just a design refresh.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
