Apple introduces cycle and noise tracking for Apple Watch
Now, let's talk about your hearing health.
Your hearing is a precious asset.
Think about the sounds that surround you everyday.
Hearing a friend's laughter, listening to your favorite song, protecting your hearing is critical to living your everyday life and maintaining your independence as you age.
And since hearing loss is often.
It's important to know when the sounds around you or loud enough to impact your hearing like when you're in the middle of a construction zone at a sporting event or playing your music really loud to drown out your singing voice.
I do that all the time.
The neonoise app uses a microphone to detect decibel levels and can notify you if it's reached a level that can impact your hearing over time.
Because the watch is always on your wrist, it's in a great position to monitor your environmental noise.
If you tap the noise app you'll get more detail and you can use the [UNKNOWN] check with just the raise of the wrist It's an easy way to protect your hearing health and of course this feature was designed with privacy in mind.
It only periodically samples and does not record or save any audio.
We think the Noise app is really gonna make a big impact.
Now there's one more new feature in health and fitness.
And all the women out there, pay close attention, because this one's for you, cycle tracking.
Knowing more about your menstrual cycle gives you a window into your health.
From a simple ensuring that you are prepared to understanding your personal balance and regularities.
As a physician I know that understanding what's normal for you is critical on making informed clinical decisions and can really enrich your conversations with your Doctor.
So in WatchOS 6 the cycle tracking app gives you a simple discreet way to visualise your cycle right on your wrist.
And it's really easy to use.
You can log key aspects of your period and fertility, including symptoms, and you can be notified when it's about to begin.
You can also choose to receive a photo window prediction so you are better informed.
This feature is available on Apple Watch.
And because we wanna make this available to hundreds of millions of women around the world, cycle tracking is also available without a watch in the Health app and IOS.
Yes, so everybody.
You can use it on your iPhone to do all of the same functions that can be done on watch.
We are so excited to bring more Focus to this incredibly important aspect of women's health.
