We've seen several reports this year suggesting that Apple has been working on sleep tracking for the Apple Watch, from the company's acquisition of Beddit back in 2017 to a report from Bloomberg stating that the company has already been testing the new feature for inclusion in a future Apple Watch model.

That language seems to indicate that Apple will release a Sleep app, one that lets you set a wake-up time similar to the iPhone's Clock app. A sample screenshot of the Alarms app shows an alarm set for 7 A.M and text reading "Set your bedtime and wake up in the Sleep app".

There are third party sleep tracking apps for the Apple Watch but given Apple's walled garden in which first party apps really do work best, the alternatives have not been great. The reference popped up for Apple's pre-installed Alarms app on the Apple Watch.

The screenshot chosen by Apple explicitly mentions the Sleep application, now not present on watchOS. Apple's own take on sleep tracking was rumored to arrive with the Apple Watch Series 5, but that didn't materialize.

Apple under fire for app that aids Hong Kong protesters
Even jailed, Leung's activism still resonates as Hong Kong is again gripped by protests that have snowballed since June. Hong Kong is experiencing severe times and its people are exhausted of the unrest.

GSMArena spotted a reference to the tool in a screenshot for the Alarms application on the App Store, which was later removed by Apple.

Apple still has to figure out battery life in order to implement this sort of feature, especially for the Apple Watch Series 5, whose battery struggles to last through the night. Meanwhile, Apple has released watchOS 6 bringing in more features for the existing lineup as well.

Of course, that is similar to how the Clock app now works on the iPhone, but a Sleep app might be able to take things to the next level.

There is now no sign of the Sleep app in the current watchOS 6.1 beta, but sleep tracking has previously been mentioned in internal iOS 13 betas. Wednesday assume only one or two of the latest generations of Apple Watch will support the feature at all.
