During the launch of Apple’s Watch Series 4, one of the star features announced was its ability to take an Electrocardiogram (ECG) right from the user’s wrist. The company confirmed when it started taking pre-orders for this smartwatch that the feature, which is only going to be available in the U.S., to begin with, won’t be available at launch. Several weeks after the smartwatch was released, its ECG feature is finally now available.

Apple is rolling out watchOS 5.1 today. The new software update for the smartwatch enables the Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG feature. The Apple Watch Series 4 is the first smartwatch of its kind to offer the ability to take an Electrocardiogram right from your wrist. Users will be able to get an ECG reading by placing their finger on the Digital Crown for 30 seconds. The app will then give them a reading. It can analyze the heart’s rhythms and inform the user if their heart has a regular or irregular rhythm.

All of the readings will be stored in the Apple Health app so that it can easily be shared with medical professionals should the need arise. As previously mentioned, this feature is only available for users in the U.S. It remains to be seen when Apple will be able to expand the Series 4’s ECG feature to more countries.

It is very good. Apple is adding medical feature to watch series 4. I believe this move would boost their market world wide. They should start exporting to other countries
