The ECG of the Apple Watch Series 4 is in approval stage in Canada
Good news for all users that will purchase the Apple Watch Series 4. Among the various features of the watch, there is the possibility to perform an electrocardiogram (ECG), however, at the beginning can be made only in the United States.
This is because Apple has got the approval from the FDA (among other things, is only a few hours before the event). Now we learn that the company is already working with Health Canada to bring the function in this other Country. There are no additional statements, nor information about the time required but we know that Apple gradually will try to bring the function in all the Countries.
The ECG is possible thanks to the hardware of the new Apple Watch, therefore can be enabled via software at a later time. It is easy to think that Health Canada will take its cue from the FDA and will not hesitate to endorse the function, as well as should make all of the other government agencies in charge of the thing.
Basically the function of the ECG will spread a little’ as has happened with Apple Pay. Initially could only be used in the USA, then arrived in the United Kingdom, and so on, reaching even Italy some years later. We hope that the expectations may be lower with regard to the Electrocardiogram.
Remember that to make a measurement it will be sufficient to wear the watch, and rest a finger on the crown digital for 30 seconds. You will create an electrical impulse which comes to the heart and comes back through the arm, and sends the data to the clock that transformed them into a chart. The latter will also be available in the form detailed on the iPhone and can be exported to PDF to share it with a doctor.
