New Apple Watch Series 4:
The Show Stealer with Impressive (Health) Features
It’s hard to remember when was the last time an Apple Watch stole the show of a completely new iPhone. Even though the new iPhone XS lineup looks amazing, the new Apple Watch Series 4 has been praised by many critics and analysts right now.
In fact, for many the new Apple Watch had stolen iPhone’s show mostly because of its amazing features. Aside from the fact that the price tag has edged up to $400 for the new models, Apple is now enticing users to upgrade with a set of great features.
A User-Friendly Interface Packing The First-Ever Built-In EKG Feature
To begin with, the new Apple Watch is packing a great health monitor – and the first-ever built-in electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) – something that only the doctor’s office had before. This game-changing feature has transform the Apple Watch from an all-around gadget to a smart fitness tracker and a potentially life-saving medical device that will soon warn wearers of abnormal heart rhythms associated with atrial fibrillation and other serious medical conditions.
According to health officials, there are more than 700,000 undiagnosed cases of AFib in the U.S. alone. If we take a scenario in which hundreds of thousands of people had the Apple Watch and its EKG features, the signal would be fast – telling them to get treatment faster.
Achieving A New, Medical-Grade Level Of Precision
The watch also has an Elevated Heart Rate Notification – which is a feature that is a lot more precise than any heart-related indicator before in the Apple ecosystem. To do what this indicator can, wearables like the Apple Watch need to reach a medical grade level of precision that would require a different type of sensor.
With this, the Apple Watch definitely stepped up the game and started crossing over into the realm of becoming a medical monitor – or a real health consultant placed on your wrist. Ready or not, the users should embrace this technology and save their lives, one heartbeat at a time.
