Apple Watch Could Launch Without Fancy Health Tracking Features in April

As you're probably aware, Apple has a new product set for release in the coming weeks - the Apple Watch.

And it's going to be big, arguably the most significant wearable release in the history of this new type of device. But it might not be as ground-breaking as some of the early reports suggested. There are rumours circulating among those in the know that the first generation of the Apple Watch might be missing a number of major health and fitness tracking elements, like blood pressure, heart activity and stress level monitoring which were originally mentioned as selling points.

The information comes to the Wall Street Journal from a source familiar with the details of the upcoming release who suggests that these features would be expensive and time-consuming to implement, so they'll be left out of the first iteration of the device. It's a smart move by the company - taking the time to find out exactly what people want from a wearable, especially one which doesn't primarily concern itself with fitness. Better to get the fundamentals right first and ensure that the market is ready for what Apple has to offer.

These features could arrive in later models but it does beg the question of whether other elements might drop off the feature list ahead of release. Time will tell, and we're going to be hearing a lot more about the Apple Watch in the coming weeks.

The Apple Watch is set for launch in April 2015.
