Apple Watch sleep tracking was planned for over five years

Sleep tracking has been an intended feature for the Apple Watch for the last five years, Apple VP of technology Kevin Lynch has revealed in an interview, with its inclusion in watchOS 7 and iOS 14 being a sign Apple is keen to do more with its years of research on the subject.

A long-rumored feature of the Apple Watch, the added sleep-related functionality intends to make a night's rest better for its users, including encouraging users to set a daily routine before they go to bed. While it is an expansion of Apple's existing Bedtime feature in iOS, the move from a simple sleep-time metric to something more advanced has been on the cards for quite some time.

In an interview with CNET, Lynch confirmed sleep tracking has been on the product roadmap of the Apple Watch since its original debut. Apple has been conducting sleep research for many years, including using EEGs for measuring sleep compared to an Apple Watch, but only now is it becoming a bigger thing for Apple to present to users.

Apple will be releasing a public beta of watchOS 7 in July for all the test pilots and fools who rush in.

If it runs on the Series 2, I might want to try it out.

Current watch related sleep tracking apps are AWESOME. Based on movement and heart rate data, they really tell the user what's going on. And the fact that, yes, my hypertension medicine means I get up to pee every 2 damn hours.

What app do you use?The one I use is inconsistent, even though I have ti set to auto. Maybe once, possibly twice a week it will track sleep. When it does, it seems fairly accurate. I have Sleep++.

I thought you would be charging the watch overnight?

Better battery life and faster charging for new AWatches?

If you have a morning routine that lasts 30 minutes, that should be enough to recharge your watch. Unless you like to shower with it or get movement credit while brushing your teeth or tossing one off.
