Apple is reportedly developing an advanced heart-rate monitoring system for Apple Watch that will utilize an electrocardiogram to take more accurate readings of the wearers' health.
EKGs are medical tests that typically use electrodes, which are placed on a person's skin, in order to monitor electrical patterns in between heartbeats. That would give the wearable predictive abilities related to cardiac medical conditions, building upon its existing basic heart monitoring functionality.
Given Apple's growing focus on health in past years, what with the introduction of HealthKit and several fitness-focused software features included in watchOS 4, this move is both unsurprising and very welcomed for those looking to get more out of wearables in the future.
The feature would enable future Apple Watch users to go beyond the devices' current heart rate tracking functionality, providing specific visualizations of healthy heart rhythms and potentially risky arrhythmias. "There's no reason to follow ECG in normal, healthy people". A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment on the report. Apple revealed it was working on this initiative, which is in partnership with Stanford University, when it released WatchOS 4. Paired with certain apps, the light sensors inside current Apple Watches can be used to spot blood flow changes in the wrist, and alert users when their heart rates spike after periods of comparative rest.
At Cupertino, a prototype version of the Apple Watch allows users to squeeze the frame with two fingers to send a weak electrical current to the heart to pick up signals.
