How do I measure blood pressure with the Apple Watch?

    The Apple Watch does not have the ability to measure blood pressure directly. Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood against the walls of the arteries, and it is typically measured using a device called a sphygmomanometer, which consists of a cuff that is placed around the upper arm and a gauge that displays the blood pressure reading.

    The Apple Watch does not have this type of equipment, so it cannot measure blood pressure directly.

    However, some third-party apps and accessories are available that claim to be able to measure blood pressure using the Apple Watch.

    These apps and accessories typically use the heart rate sensor on the Apple Watch to estimate blood pressure, but the accuracy of these methods has not been proven.

    It is important to note that the Apple Watch is not a medical device, and it should not be used for making medical diagnoses or decisions. If you are concerned about your blood pressure, it is best to consult with a healthcare provider and use a properly calibrated blood pressure monitor to measure your blood pressure.
