A Twitter user, Daniel Marcinkowski, has spotted a Sleep app for the Apple Watch mentioned in an App Store listing.

In the App Store listing for the company’s pre-installed Alarms app on the Apple Watch, there was a screenshot of an unreleased version of the Alarms app with a “Sleep” label and text reading “Set your bedtime and wake up in the Sleep app”, MacRumors reported on Monday.

The Cupertino-based company has been developing this sleep-tracking feature so that it can monitor sleep quality via sensors within the Apple Watch.

Right now, a user needs to download a third-party app to track their sleep.
