Apple is expected to launch its latest Watch Series 6 in September this year. Ahead of the official unveiling, a tipster has revealed the possible features of the upcoming Apple Watch. The company’s wearables are popular for offering string fitness tracking features and even saving people’s life. The latest leaks suggest that Apple is planning to take things to a new level.

As per a new leak from Max Weinbach and EverythingApplePro, the Apple Watch Series 6 might be able to monitor a person’s mental health. The smartwatch would be able to track stress levels, and even give panic attack alerts. Apple’s main goal is to “detect panic attacks before they happen, warn the user beforehand and offer assistance (such as breathing exercises),” Weinbach said.

The cited sources claim that Apple is currently having internal discussions about the watch’s ability to monitor mental health-related features. Apart from this, the fitness watch could also come with Touch ID. But, the cited source asserts that the feature will most likely appear in the Apple Watch Series 7 or Series 8. The next-generation of Apple Watch is said to offer better battery life, enhanced water-resistance, and a next-gen processor.

The fitness wearable could offer support for Wi-Fi 6 as well as a sleep tracking feature. The Apple Watch Series 6 might also be able to measure blood oxygen levels and even alert users when their blood oxygen level falls low. Blood oxygen sensing helps people get an estimate of how oxygenated their blood is. Levels between 95 percent and 100 percent are considered healthy. Meanwhile, blood oxygen levels below 80 percent can lead to heart health issues or even cardiac arrest.
Apple is reportedly also working on removing a current shortcoming of the current electrocardiogram function. This will improve the ECG performance on subsequent renditions of the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch Series 4 and 5 currently result in inconclusive ECG readings with heart rates between 100 and 120 beats per minute and the new update will remove that limitation with an upgraded version of the ECG app.
