New Apple Watch Series 5 will take ECG function to more countries

ByLinky Johnson 2019-04-20 379

The Apple Watch Series 4 arrived in September 2018 with a great differential and evolution against all competitors: the possibility of performing an electrocardiogram (ECG) without having to mark the appointment with a physician. Although the functionality is relatively dangerous, since it can lead the user to believe wrongly in the data they are seeing and thus end up marking unnecessary queries, the fact is that the ECG on the Apple Watch was a big step.

New Apple Watch Series 5  ECG function


But if you buy a series 4 in Brazil, France or the UK, this feature will not be available on the watch even if it is possible to activate it in a very easy way. Currently, only Apple Watch buyers in the United States can take advantage of ECG monitoring due to regional health regulation restrictions.


To activate your Apple Watch with the electrocardiogram, the manufacturer needs a medical license for the device before, and it seems that Canada may be one of the next countries where the Apple watch would debut with ECG monitoring, but there is a possibility for the License request is denied.


The problem with this type of product is that the company needs to order the licence in each market that is sold in order to activate its main differential, with this, different countries with different laws and regulations can greatly hinder the expansion of the resource.


It is still unclear whether Apple would be planning to launch a completely new product in countries, leaving such novelty to Watch Series 5, or whether the company can update the current model and activate the decline via software, without the need for users who have purchased the 2018 model have to acquire the 2019 product again to officially have the functionality.


More news should appear in the coming months, so stay tuned!
