Future versions of the Apple Watch will include “richer health features and additional sensors,” according to a new report from Reuters. Though the Apple Watch was only unveiled on Tuesday, the site says that some healthcare professionals who were hoping for “groundbreaking health features” were left disappointed with the watch’s fitness capabilities.


Observers say there is little evidence for now that the device’s fitness capabilities surpass the competition. Others, hoping for groundbreaking health features from a company whose Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook spoke of how sensors are “set to explode,” were left wondering what’s in store for the product. 

Two people familiar with Apple’s plans told Reuters the company is planning to unveil richer health features and additional sensors in later versions, the first iteration not hitting the market until early 2015.
