Apple Watch Series 4 : just a watch or a medical device?

Apple Watch Series 4 : just a watch or a medical device?

Despite the negative reviews about the almost unchanged iPhone, the new generation of the Apple Watch Series 4 pleased critics of modern innovations, as in the new version of the gadget is equipped with special sensors able to record the electrocardiogram of man.

The basic ECG feature on the Apple Watch might just be sufficient for most people, but the complete lack of the feature in other parts of the world is definitely going to disappoint a lot of customers. All old Apple Watch bands will fit on the new case sizes.

These features will be available to USA customers later this year, but Apple did not say when it would make it to the rest of the world. Users will also be notified if they show signs of atrial fibrillation thanks to the watch's intermittent heart rate analysis. After all, we are talking about a change in the design of the display.

In the meantime, for those who don't want an Apple Watch, nor an Android Wear watch, there's Samsung's new Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch.

Apple added a new electrical heart sensor to the Apple Watch Series 4.

The new Apple watch series 4 will be equipped with electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor along with its typical IR sensor.

"People are scared; their heart scares them", John Mandrola, a cardiologist at Baptist Health in Louisville, said.

Apple Watch Series 4 is set to launch in Canada on September 21, 2018. The company has unveiled several new iPhone. The ECG app can detect whether your heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether you have symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib).

Also, recall that an American company Robotic Turing Industries, specializing in the development of unique mobile phones announced in 2020 the release of their new action-Packed mobile-Turing Hubble clamshell Phone with three screens in honor of the famous orbiting telescope.

The heart rate data can easily be shared with doctors with a PDF file. Consequently, the watch can now detect hard falls by analyzing wrist trajectory and impact acceleration. The median US household income rose for a third straight year in 2017 to the highest on record since 1967 by one measure, government data showed on Wednesday. The company says it protects your privacy by encrypting the data on your devices and online through iCloud. It will automatically detect and initiate an emergency call. Photos are great approximations of how Apple Watches sit on someone else's wrists, and until they're on yours, it's nearly impossible to judge.

If you haven't responded within a minute - perhaps you hit your head and blacked out -the watch can call 911 using your nearby phone or its own cellular transmitter and also send a notification with your location to your preset emergency contacts.

Apple insists that all the personal health data it is collecting is just that - personal - and that it is up to you to determine when and with whom to share it.
