Apple reportedly had some sensors removed from its new smartwatch after discovering that arm hair was obstructing its functioning.

According to Daily Star, a report from The Wall Street Journal has suggested that Apple wanted their watch to measure a host of bodily functions, such as blood pressure and stress levels.

However, the company figured that strap tightness, skin types and hair issues disrupted the smartwatch's accurate readings and decided to have the sensors removed.

The smartwatch will be launched in April and the device and will be fitted with some fitness aids including heart rate monitor and activity tracking, the report added.
