How does the Waterproofed Apple Watch Sport track my heart rate?

When your heart beats, your capillaries expand and contract based on blood volume changes. The green LED lights on your Apple Watch flash hundreds of times a second and measure blood flow through your wrist. Because blood is red it reflects red light and absorbs green light allowing the photodiodes on the watch to measure number of heart beats a minute. Additionally the Watch uses infrared light to measure your heart rate every 10 minutes.

Your Waterproofed Apple Watch Sport includes many sensors that can be used to track sleep. Currently you must find and download a 3rd party sleep tracking app from the app store such as Sleep Pulse. There is plans for Apple to create it's own sleep tracking app soon.
