Apple rolls out ECG, health features for Watch Series 4

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

In my opinion, this is the watch's biggest win, and here's why: Have you ever felt something weird happening in your body.only to feel total normal the second you get to the doctor? This feature would help users identify the signs of atrial fibrillation, which is the most common form of irregular heart rhythm and if left untreated can even lead to death. The study found the ECG app on Apple Watch demonstrated 98.3 percent sensitivity in classifying AFib and 99.6 percent specificity in classifying sinus rhythm in classifiable recordings.

Heart rhythms will then be classed into either AFib, sinus rhythm or inconclusive categories.

However, this update is more important for the latest Watch Series 4, as it unlocks the long-awaited ECG (Electrocardiography) readout feature.

Whether the ECG app is effective remains to be seen.

The Ambanis - Mukesh, Nita Ambani, Ajay and Swati Piramal, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal were seen serving people at the function. Social media photos of the venues - the Oberoi Udai Vilas and City Palace, showed that they were decked up for grand celebration.

After releasing the iOS 12.1.1 for the iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch, Apple rolled out the new watchOS 5.1.1 for all the Watch series models.

The Apple Watch will passively read your heart rate in the background and will warn you if it spots a suspicious pattern. The Apple Watch 4 is being sold worldwide, of course, and it includes a heart sensor, but the app will be limited to the United States for now.

"With the ECG app and irregular rhythm notification feature, customers can now better understand aspects of their heart health in a more meaningful way."Desai added". At the time of the Watch's debut in September, Apple's native app with which the electrodes communicate wasn't ready for consumer use.

Users will have to keep their finger on the Digital Crown for 30 seconds while the app measures their heart rhythm.

The night prior to Stefaniak's flight, she took an Uber downtown and was dropped off at an Airbnb in San Jose. Ms Stefaniak had planned to fly back to the U.S. the following day but never arrived for her flight.

The ECG app will save the waveform, classification and any other information gathered from the measurement onto the iPhone Health app, according to AppleInsider.

I also would have gotten a PDF of the results in the Health app to share with my doctor-because you can bet I would've panicked and called her, ASAP.

The irregular heart rhythm app will be able to detect most cases of arrhythmia, where the heart rhythms are too fast or too slow.

Redditor u/edentel posted his experience today after receiving an alert on his Apple watch indicating he may have atrial fibrillation - afib for short - and chose to go to the doctor. It's a passive feature that checks your heart rhythm in two-hour intervals. "At the American Heart Association, we are committed to educating and empowering people to be proactive in all areas of their heart health and general well-being".
