Apple WatchOS 7 is coming with a number of scintiliating features. The software also is going to have a significant upgrade. The same was announced at the WWDC 2020 (Worldwide Developers Conference). Some of the new features include Sleep Monitoring. This is a very useful feature added to Apple's compressive health tracking system. This feature was missing from Apple's trademark watch which was giving an edge to its rivals including Fitbit. But not anymore.

A public beta of this new app is launched this month. The complete version shall be released in September this year. Of course, the battery will have to bear this addtional burden. Addition of sleep tracking in WatchOS 7 will definitely demand a longer battery life to accommodate this new feature smartly. Probably the next Apple Watch Series 6 will be taking care of it.

The feature, that way, he;ps you focus on getting your eyelids closed with the help of meditation software. Subtle alarm to your ears and a refreshing good morning message on the screen will wake you up in the morning.

Apple's health app development manager, Vera Carr says, “Once you're up, you'll see a friendly greeting easing you into the day. [The screen] also shows your battery level, so you can remember to charge in the morning.”
