Manage Medications on Apple Watch
One of the highlights of watchOS 9 is the all-new Medication app. The Medicines app on Apple Watch makes it easy for you to track your medicines easily and conveniently.

However, it is not clear whether all the features of the Medicines app will be available to all users across the world.
better sleep tracking
Sleep tracking is one area where the Apple Watch has probably lagged behind the competition. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Watch does a good job of sleep tracking. However, with watchOS 9, Apple wants to fix that. One of the new feature offering deeper insight into your sleep is Sleep Stages. The Apple Watch uses signals from the accelerometer and heart rate sensors to detect when you’re awake, as well as when you’re in REM, core, or deep sleep. You can review detailed information, including how long you spent in each step and when you woke up.
AFib History: For Cardio Health Monitoring
If you’ve been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, you can now access the AFib history—a first of its kind feature that gives you unparalleled insight into your AFib over a long period of time. watchOS 9 can predict how often your heart is in AFib while wearing the Apple Watch. The updated Health app will show you how your lifestyle may be affecting AFib and provide useful insight into behaviors that can help reduce the amount of time you spend with this arrhythmia. The time you spend with AFib is important, as it can affect your symptoms, overall quality of life, and your risk of serious complications.
