Apple Watch Series 6 will have a new feature called "Mental Health" which allows you to identify – and therefore keep under control – panic attacks.

watchOS 7: Preventing Panic Attacks

With the next generation of Apple Watch coming this year or at the latest next year, Cupertino will launch a new feature called "Mental Health" which will allow you to identify panic attacksto help control them.

Apple Watch Series 6: Touch ID and oximeter arrive

The next generation of Apple Watch will be equipped with an oximeter, integrated Touch ID and sleep tracker support. Here are all the news coming.

Not just oximeter, sleep tracker and better water resistance. Thanks to watchOS 7, Apple Watch Series 6 will take advantage of the monitoring of blood oxygenation levels for diagnose panic attacks. This was revealed by a very reliable canary, Jon Prosser, in one of his latest podcasts:

"There is one thing they are focusing on a lot, and I hope it will come this year; maybe next year, but I really hope it will be launched at WWDC, and the new Mental Health function. In practice, by crossing the saturation levels oxygen in the blood with the beat can determine if one went into hyperventilation. They can identify a panic attack before it occurs, and warn you on the clock. And if you are driving, I will ask you to pull over to practice ventilation exercises. "

But the most interesting aspect that Apple is studying is the possibility of integrating the same feature even on older models; at present, however, there are no certainties. In fact, it seems that watchOS 7 will be able to keep stress levels under control, and that this feature does not depend directly on the new oximetric sensor; so much so that it should be implemented backwards up to Apple Watch Series 4. But until launch, of course, nothing is known.
