Accuracy Concerns Force Apple to Cut a Bunch of Health Features From Apple Watch: Report

Apple originally planned for the Apple Watch to have a whole range of exciting health tracking features, but had to cut many of them before its release, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Apple Watch was meant to feature a system to track how stressed you are by measuring the conductivity of skin. You sweat more if you’re nervous, and that makes your skin more conductive.

The Watch also included an electrocardiogram feature that measures a user’s heart rate (that’s more in-depth than simply measuring a pulse).
