Apple has recently introduced its new watch with a list of extraordinary features. The latest version can detect your heart-health, and it has the AFib system as well. What’s more? The design of this new Watch is innovative and fresh. Its display is curvy that gives it a stylish look.
Apple launched the new watch with all these features in America, back in December. And today, after three months, the company has announced to launch the latest watch in Hong Kong and 19 Euro countries.
The most-awaited feature in the new watch is its Electrocardiogram (ECG) system and irregular rhythm analysis. The two features will be available on some models.
Heart rhythm irregularities can result in a stroke or heart failure – the leading cause of death around the world. The company released the feature after extensive researches conducted by Stanford doctors. A total number of 400,000 volunteers took part in the study. The watch issued alarms to more than 2,000 volunteers.
The new health apps work in the background to check the user’s heartbeat and warn them in case of irregularities. The watch checks the rhythm five times before issuing an alarm to avoid false alarms.
Models for New Features?
The IR system will be available in Series 1 and later. But the ECG feature will only be offered on the Series 4. However, users curious to get this feature on their older watch versions, you can install upgrades to 5.2. After this, open your Health app and carry out the onboarding procedure.
The country list includes Hong Kong, Switzerland, U.K., Sweden, Spain, Romania, Portugal, Norway, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Hungary, Greece, Germany, France, Finland, Denmark, Belgium and Austria.
Apple’s COO, Jeff Williams says, "The ECG app and irregular rhythm notifications on Apple Watch have a meaningful impact."
