Apple Previewed the watchOS 7 at WWDC20. The new operating system introduces new customization tools and health and fitness features to the world's most advanced smartwatch.

Personalization

watchOS 7 offers new ways to discover and share watch face combinations to suit any activity or lifestyle. Users can discover the infinitely customizable and personalized watch faces through the App Store or links shared on third-party websites or via social media. Watch face customizations can also be shared through Messages or Mail.

watchOS 7 also offers updates to faces for more personalization and greater access to apps. Developers now can offer more than one complication per app on a single watch face.

Health & Fitness

Sleep

watchOS 7 brings sleep tracking to Apple Watch. Through the detection of micro-movements from the watch's accelerometer, which captures breathing during sleep, Apple Watch identifies and records the amount of sleep the wearer gets each day.

watchOS 7 also allows users to create customized routines before bed, including changing scenes in the Home app, playing a soothing soundscape, or launching a meditation app. Apple Watch turns on Do Not Disturb and automatically darkens the screen in Sleep Mode.
Apple Watch also offers a silent haptic alarm. It will remind users to charge it before bed if the battery runs low within an hour of bedtime.

Hand Washing

watchOS 7 adds handwashing detection that automatically initiates a 20-second countdown to encourage the wearer to wash hands thoroughly. Naturally, handwashing records are kept securely in the Health app on iPhone or the Apple Watch.

Fitness

Apple has redesigned the Workout app and the Activity app for closer monitoring of the wearer's workouts and activities throughout the day.
