We already knew that Apple had been planning to launch a sleep-tracking feature alongside watchOS 6 and Apple Watch Series 5, which is why the launch of the latest smartwatch was met with such lukewarm reception when it was announced after the September keynote. With this, we can expect Apple to roll out the Sleep app in the next watchOS version. This will allow users to set bedtime and wake up alarms on their Apple Watches, something now only possible on the iPhone or iPad.

Right now, a user needs to download a third-party app to track their sleep. The app is built to assist its users in tallying up their sleep patterns and also work as their alarm clock.

At some point since The Verge noticed the potential Sleep app, Apple removed any reference to the app.

The launch of the Apple Watch Series 5 came and went without any mention of sleep tracking, but it looks like Apple is still thinking about the concept.

App Store screenshots have revealed an as-yet-unannounced Sleep app for Apple Watch. Apple had introduced ECG monitoring and Irregular Rhythm notifications in Watch 4 Series making it the most useful wearable for tracking heart health. However, Apple has spared no official details about this feature on its release.

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. The app will recommend users to have at least 30 percent of battery life to wear their watch to sleep, with a possible new Sleep watch face launching too.

While yes, some can argue that the bedtime alarms can be set via iPhone or iPad, they do not function independently on the Apple Watch, which is what the screenshot seems to suggest.
