How to Find an Apple Watch 4 In Stock

Apple's newest watch also offers a new medical device: one of the first over-the-counter electrocardiograms, or EKGs.

The last time I interviewed Vic Gundotra was some six years ago, back when he was still the top executive at Google's not yet ghost town of a social network, Google+, and he was as Google-y as you'd expect about how incredible and wonderful it was going to be.

"Your apps can now take advantage of the expanded display on Apple Watch Series 4 to show even more information and detail at a glance". There's a new sensor that lets you use the watch to tell whether you have a normal or irregular heartbeat, among lots of other health features.

With the app, users touch the Digital Crown and after 30 seconds, receive a heart rhythm classification.

The Swiss watch industry faces an increased threat from a new Apple Watch that is able to detect heart problems and is likely to appeal to older shoppers, Reuters reports, citing industry experts.




For a market that is growing, these features in wearables will matter more and more. Here, the tech colossus announced the launch of three new phones: the iPhone Xs; the larger, more expensive iPhone Xs Max; and, starting at $749, the cheaper iPhone XR. With this new processor, it is said that it may enable the multi-day battery life that can be extended till a week or more than that.

Apple said the EKG feature will be available to US customers later this year, an indication that it may not be ready for launch. The following year, Apple replaced the gold cases with ceramic ones and lowered the starting price of the Watch Edition models by 88%, to that $US1,250 price point.

An improved accelerometer and gyroscope in the watch mean that it can detect when the user has taken a fall, and the watch will ask if they need help. If you do not respond to the notification, call the emergency services or send a message a message to them.

For some freaky reason, a Quartz piece on this was headlined The new heart-monitoring capabilities on the Apple Watch aren't all that impressive.

Apple says it monitored some 2,500 people - measuring how they fell off ladders, missed a step while walking or got their legs caught in their trousers while getting dressed. Younger people can activate it in the settings. We've already written about this in an earlier post, but the FDA gave Apple the approvals it needed for the watch on the condition it stress that any readings should be seen as a guide that you'd want to get a doctor to look into.
