The Apple Watch 5 is reportedly going to be theft-proof as hinted by the patent filings submitted by the company at the end of 2018. According to TechNadu, the upcoming device will be able to create multilayered authentication access by analyzing multiple patterns located on the wrist.

These patterns include pores, vascular, vein, artery, tendon and many others that will be used by the Apple Watch 5 to determine whether the wearer is indeed its owner. There will be a certain threshold that will govern this mode of authentication. Using the information mentioned above, the device will set a threshold to analyze similarities and will provide access to the user should their patterns match with the stored data.

If not, the device will lock that user out, essentially making the Apple Watch 5 theft-proof. However, the problem is that it’s still unconfirmed whether this feature will be included in the fifth entry. Given the lateness of the patent filing and Apple itself remaining mum about the matter, it’s best to remain skeptical for now.

As for its other features, MacOtakara (via Wareable) reports that the Apple Watch 5 will supposedly have wireless technology. The publication contends that the source of the information came from Apple’s supply chain. The rumor is also being backed by reputable leaker and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Another feature of the Apple Watch 5 that has made its way on the web is its capability of tracking the sleep pattern of an individual. The speculation was made following Apple’s acquisition of Beddit, a company involved in manufacturing sleep monitoring hardware.

While this may be an intriguing tech for Apple Watch 5, it does bring several questions forward. Among them is the location in which the device is being worn.

“Tracker position matters. Throughout the night when your arm moves around but your body stays relatively still, tracking the movements of a sleeping person’s body can get tricky when the device is attached to your wrist. Gauging what position you are sleeping in is crucial - and also very difficult to do if your tracker is worn on the wrist,” said Beddr CEO Mike Kisch. As for when people can expect the Apple Watch 5 to hit the market, it’s speculated that it will come out sometime this September since previous entries have been released during this time.
