    From the article: Apple continues to pursue adding accurate blood pressure measurement to the Apple Watch, and now that research includes potentially utilizing a stretchable Watch band.

    Apple Watch has always been able to measure heart rates in beats per minute, but it’s not been able to include sensors that are sensitive enough to accurately record blood pressure. There are third-party blood pressure apps for Apple Watch, but all of them require an accessory such as a cuff that wraps around the wearer’s wrist.

    Previously, Apple has researched how to provide accurate and sensitive enough measurements without using a cuff. Now, however, a newly-revealed patent application shows that the company is at least considering using a Watch strap as a blood pressure cuff.
