WATCHOS 5.1.2 UPDATE WILL NOT INCLUDE ECG SUPPORT FOR INDIA
Apple Watch Series 4’s upcoming ECG feature is not coming to India.
WHY THE HYPE?
ECG feature which is supposedly coming with WATCHOS5.1.2 update of Apple Watch. However, as per the reports, it is not coming to India. You must be thinking why it should bother anyone?
Well, the ECG feature on Apple Watch Series 4 has allured due to its ability to discover irregularities in atrial fibrillation and heart rhythm (which could indicate signs of imminent stroke or heart attack). This could help you take precautions and take care of your heart health before it is too late. However, Apple Watch’s ECG feature could not predict a threat to your life.
The feature is included to help people living with persistent heart ailments, such as irregular heart rates and other critical heart conditions.
With this feature included, Apple Watch will be first of its kind to get the feature, along with US FDA certification. The beta version of this feature was tested using healthcare trials, news media, and more. It will be coming to Apple’s Series 4 users soon. Apple has ensured that the feature will roll out by the end of the year, however, nothing can be said for sure.
According to some sources, Apple will bring the ECG feature to Apple Watch with the watchOS 5.1.2 update. The software is in testing and it is not ready for users. Whenever it arrives, it is expected to read a user’s heart beats well (as it is claimed by Apple)
The feature might not come to India when it is launched to other parts of the world as there are a lot of licenses that Apple needs to obtain.
IS IT WORTH THE WAIT?
Medical technology has become advanced but to detect an anomaly, a hospital might need set of instruments however Apple Watch with ECG feature could help in detecting the anomaly without much difficulty.
Although, this feature on Apple Watch can certainly not replace ECG machine in any given scenario
The Watch’s ECG feature certainly isn’t a replacement for an ECG machine by any stretch of the imagination, said Dr. Ashok Punjabi, leading cardiologist at the Krishna Cardiac Care Centre in Mumbai.
According to Dr. Ashok Punjabi, the head cardiologist at the Krishna Cardiac Care Centre in Mumbai, “It can be disturbed easily, it can pick up on a person’s anxiety and nervousness… signals from the environment. This is assuming the instrument itself works without errors considering the importance of the task at hand.”
It took takes weeks to months before Apple release ECG feature to devices in India, so with all that it could, will it be worth the wait?
