The Apple Watch's new ECG feature is already saving lives

Apple watchOS 5.1.2 update brings ECG feature to the Series 4 device.

Apple’s anticipated ECG app rolls out today in watchOS 5.1.2

Apple Watch Series 4 has started receiving an important ECG feature from Thursday onwards with the roll out of new WatchOS update. The AFib feature runs in the background and will occasionally check for your heart rhythm; if five consecutive irregular heart rhythms are detected, you'll get a notification.

Many Apple Watch Series 4 users have shared demonstrations of how the ECG app works. The Apple Watch 4 is being sold worldwide, of course, and it includes a heart sensor, but the app will be limited to the USA for now.

When it comes to the USA, the company collaborated with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over the course of a couple of years in order to make these new features available to the public.

Apple has released watchOS 5.1.2, enabling the long-awaited ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 models in the United States. This may happen when the watch is not in proper contact with the wrist.
