The effectiveness in measuring this ambient noise that will arrive in the next version of watchOS is truly spectacular. Is about real data obtained with a device specifically designed to perform this type of measurements and that the result of the comparison is really accurate. From what we can say that in this video that we will see after the jump of user Blake Helms, the measurement made with the Apple Watch application in watchOS 6 and a specific device to measure decibels is practically the same and with hardly any "lag" between the data so we can say that Apple's work in this regard has been really good.

In this case we can see in the video of the user Blake Helms, how the watch is able to match the data of this professional meter. Without a doubt, it is something that will improve our hearing health and we can also configure the notifications in this section so that the clock notifies us by notification when we are in a place with a sound greater than 90 decibels. We have to take into account that the health of our eardrums is important since we lose hearing capacity over the years and it never recovers.
This functionality may not be of interest to all users but in the watchOS version 6 we will also be able to remove native applications that we do not use so there is no problem in it if we only use this app when we update our watch and then delete it. In any case, the important thing here is that we can see that the measurement obtained in terms of decibels it is simply perfect.
