Apple's new patent mentions that the watch can assess blood pressure from the pulse: "By processing the data from the pulse arriving at the sensor, it calculates when the blood pressure pulse generated by the blood pumped by the left ventricle reaches the wrist". This means that users need to wear electrodes or some other form of sensor to achieve this new continuous blood pressure monitoring feature with the Apple Watch.
