Did you know that your Apple Watch can be used to measure the noise levels in your environment? That’s right, you no longer need to use special equipment to measure ambient sound levels, as you can do it right from your wrist.
The Noise app for Apple Watch is available on models running watchOS 6 or later, and it allows users to measure the ambient noise levels in the surroundings using the built-in microphone, relying on exposure duration. The app can even alert you if the Apple Watch identifies sound levels above a specific threshold that could negatively impact your hearing. You can also use this neat feature as a decibel meter for your Apple Watch.
