Along with all the shiny products, new features and designs recently announced by Apple come a bunch of game-changing health tracking tech.
The Apple Watch Series 4 now features a new electric heart sensor that allows you to take an ECG test to analyse your heart rhythm and share with your doctor.
It can classify if the heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether there are signs of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), a heart condition that could lead to major health complications.
It can also alert you if the heart rate exceeds or falls below a specified threshold.
All recordings, their associated classifications and any noted symptoms are stored in the Health app in a PDF that can be easily shared.
It can now predict if you have a bad fall too. If there’s an accident, the watch can prompt a call to emergency services.
By analyzing “wrist trajectory” and “impact acceleration”, Apple Watch sends you an alert after a fall, which can be dismissed or used to prompt a call to emergency services.
There are also some cool visual features such as a watch face visual that animates around the timing of a deep breath.
Fitness features have been enhanced too with more accurate automatic detection of what sport you’re doing.
You can challenge an Activity Sharing friend to a seven-day competition and enjoy longer battery life than previous models.
Prices start at $399 USD and they’re available to order from 14th September 2018.
