The New Apple Watch Can Detect Afib and Perform an ECG

16 Septembre 2018

Beginning September 14, Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) will be available to order in 26 countries and territories and Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular) will be available to order in 16 countries and territories.

Yesterday, news about Apple's latest products were leaked to mainstream media earlier than the company anticipated.

As you can see, both the Galaxy Watch and Apple Watch Series 4 are compelling smartwatches that offer a number of features for your connected lifestyle and fitness regimen.

While the Apple Watch Series 4 is not the first wearable device to receive FDA approval for ECG monitoring, integrating the feature to the watch itself will make it easier for people to use it. The entry-level aluminum models are priced from $399 and $429 respectively for the 40mm and 44mm case sizes, while LTE adds another $100 to the total for each. Color in hours are for any taste - Silver (silver), gold (gold), space gray (satellite silver) and gold stainless (Gold steel). Orders for the Apple Watch Series 4 begin this Friday, and shipping starts on September 21. The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X ("10"), which marks the 10th anniversary of the smartphone - stretching the screen while keeping the overall handset size at or near that of previous models.

The trillion dollar company also revealed an upgraded version of its Watch during a launch event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

A better-positioned microphone and speakers that are 50% louder will not only enhance the quality of phone calls but also the consumer's interaction with Siri.

The latest version, unveiled Wednesday, is pushing the health envelope even further - in particular by taking electrocardiograms, or EKGs, a feature given clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Apple said.

Marcus - whose Health eHeart study is evaluating how technology can help patients - and Mandrola say they are optimistic about how data collected from Apple Watch from people who've opted in to studies can help researchers. Activity allows users to set their own personal fitness goals for their day. He hints that the watch, on the other hand, could evolve in the years to come. The larger watch pushes the screen to 1.78 inches with a resolution of 448x368.

Apple Watch has always been health orientated, a lot of people use these features but many including myself do not.

"A new workout API simplifies workout app development, ensures improved data accuracy, and enables more robust app performance". And with the announcement this week, you have the choice to put your money down for the biggest iPhone out there to date - with the biggest price tag, edging up to $1,500 for the maxed out model - or a watch that can do an ECG and contact 911 if you fall. Having it accessible through the watch could lead to quicker diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase a person's risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Lastly, the watch face can now be used to generate an electrocardiogram by placing a finger on the digital crown.

The Fall Detection Feature (Think Life Alert's "I've fallen and can't get up" ads) can sense when a fall occurs.

The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over.

At the time, shares of Apple were actually in red yesterday.

Another bit of good news is that the new Series 4 will be fully compatible with older bands. There are many other factors, such as someone's general health or age, that affect whether an irregular heartbeat needs to be treated, he said.
