Apple Watch Reportedly Lacks Features To Track Blood Pressure, Other Health Metrics
The Apple smartwatch set to be released in April lacks some health-related technology components that the company had originally envisioned. Individuals familiar with the device said the Apple Watch does not include tools to monitor individuals' blood pressure, heart activity and stress level -- features that previously were expected. The individuals said that development on those features faltered and they ultimately were left out of the first version of the watch.
