It its latest rollout of updates, Apple announced that it will be adding menstruation and fertility tracking to its newest Apple Watch system.
While it has been a feature of the health app on Apple smartphones since 2015, the ability to track period and fertility information on the Apple Watch with watchOS6 is new.
“The new Cycle Tracking app gives women the ability to log important information related to their menstrual cycles and see predicted timing for their next period and fertile window using the convenience of Apple Watch,” Apple announced in a statement.
“The daily log function enables the quick addition of information related to the menstrual cycle, including current period, flow, symptoms, results from ovulation prediction kits and other elements of fertility tracking,” Apple stated.
The feature is also available in the health app on Apple smartphones, but “being able to track your cycles on the Watch is a ‘finally’ moment,” Sean Hollister wrote in an article for The Verge, a technology trends publication.
