New Apple watch: Check the time, give yourself an EKG

18 Septembre 2018

As Apple unveiled the new watch, the FDA released a statement from Commissioner Scott Gottlieb welcoming Apple's entry into the healthcare field, noting the new watch has two apps that consumers may find particularly useful.

The first of these was the Apple Watch Series Four, the fourth generation of Apple Watch with a sleeker design, a larger display screen, more emphasis on visuals and detail, and better communications and activity features (you can read a complete breakdown of the Apple Watch Series 4 here).

Yesterday at the Apple "Gather Around" event, Apple introduced to the public the Apple Watch Series 4 which is packed with advanced health monitoring features.

While you can't walk into an Apple Store this instant and buy the new Apple Watch until next week, you can pre-order the Series 4 right now!

Many fitness trackers and smart watches have heart monitors, but their accuracy varies, and simple heart rate does not always convey much useful medical information.

Last year's Series 3 model included an accelerometer, a compass, heart rate tracker, and water resistance, and that won't change, but will see an upgrade or two. If you order it tonight, this smartwatch might reach you on or before September 21 ( for customers in the US). The Apple Watch Series 4 Cellular 40mm edition with aluminium case will be priced at Rs 49,900, while the 44mm model for the same will cost Rs 52,900.

Apple's next iPhone wasn't the only announcement made this week, with a new Watch on the way, too.

If you order from B&H Photo and some other online retailers you won't need to pay sales tax if you are outside of NY or NJ.

At the launch of the new Apple Watch 4, it was a bit of a scrum to get some decent hands on time with the device (especially against the backdrop of grabbing time with three new iPhones as well). If you have got the LTE version or if you want to turn the Global Positioning System option run tracking on then the battery life drops significantly. There is a new line of them again this year, bigger and more expensive than before.

The Apple Watch Series 4 covers a wide range of price points. You should also look into our list of the best Apple Watch bands and best Apple Watch Accessories.

Williams described the latest Watch as an "intelligent guardian of your health", noting that Apple got clearance for the ECG app from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the first of its kind.

You wear the watch and when you want to check your heart, you put your finger on the crown and hold it there for 30 seconds. He added though that the device's ECG can be used in conjunction as more specific test to confirm a potential heart issue.

The ECG app is meant to detect if users are showing signs of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), a common type of heart arrhythmia affecting millions of citizens in the USA and around the world. All recordings, their associated classifications and any noted symptoms are stored in the Health app in a PDF that can be shared with physicians, Apple said.
