Apple Watch series 4 gets ECG app, detects irregular heart beats

watchOS 5.1.2 is Available Today, Brings ECG and Irregular Heartbeat Detection

The watch can intermittently check the wearer's heart rhythm in the background and send a notification if it detects irregular heart rhythm.

"The ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 captures heart rhythm in a moment when customers experience symptoms like a rapid or skipped heartbeat and helping to provide critical data to physicians", the Apple announcement notes. The users need to wait till 30 seconds while Apple Watch Series 4 scans the electrical impulses in the finger. The new features have been given clearance by the US Food and Drug Administration and are for US customers only. The electrode on the Digital Crown communicates with the other electrode on the Watch, which sits near the heart rate monitor, to take a complete ECG measurement. If you are a Series 4 owner or are just curious as to how the feature works, check out our guide below. The two points of contact are the equivalent of a single lead ECG. Even if the watch does detect a problem with the heart rhythm, the final call have to be taken by a doctor after regular tests have been carried. In one of the videos, numerous Apple Watch owners share their stories of how Apple Watch alerted them to a serious heart condition. Basically, that means it's a novel device unlikely to cause harm, and not the equivalent of a hospital-grade medical device.

The ECG app's ability to accurately classify an ECG recording into atrial fibrillation (AFib) and sinus rhythm was validated in a clinical trial that delivered a 98.3 percent sensitivity in classifying AFib earlier this year. The first one means that your heart is working just fine, while atrial fibrillation means your heart is not beating in a regular rhythm. You must have the Watch placed on its charger, connected to Wi-Fi or LTE, with at least 50-percent battery to download the update. If you don't see the update right away, it might take a hot second for the rollout to reach you-I haven't gotten it yet despite multiple refreshes. This release contains a host of new Complications for certain watch faces on Apple Watch Series 4 as well as a new toggle within Control Center to quickly toggle the Walkie-Talkie functionality on and off.
