One of the most sought-after versions of watchOS has been released. After yesterday’s updates of the macOS and iOS versions, today watchOS 5.1.2 allows Apple Watch Series 4 customers to use the ECG application and perform electrocardiograms just by placing their fingers on the Apple Watch.
In the update released today, in addition to the typical improvements in performance and stability of the system in general, we find new features, too, in particular, the ECG application.
“The electrodes integrated into the digital crown and rear glass work together with the ECG application to read the electrical signals from your heart. Simply touch the digital crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG application can indicate whether your heart rate shows signs of atrial fibrillation (a severe form of irregular heart rhythm) or sinus rhythm, meaning that your heart is beating in a normal pattern,” Apple stated.
WhatchOS 5.1.2 Version Comes With The ECG Application And Several Improvements
“Each heartbeat sends an electrical impulse. With the ECG application, Apple Watch Series 4 can read and record these impulses by connecting the circuit between your heart and both arms. The resulting ECG waveform, its classification, and any notes you entered about related symptoms are automatically stored in the health application on your iPhone. You can share them with your doctor and have a conversation about your health,” explained Apple in the release note of the new whatchOS 5.1.2.
Other changes we receive with this update include the new switch in the Control Center of the Walkie-Talkie application. Regarding complications, the latest version reveals Search My Friends, Home, Mail, Maps, Messages, News, Phone, and Remote Control.
The new update also delivers several improvements to tickets and reward cards in the Wallet application. In short, a whatchOS 5.1.2 is an excellent and complete update for the Apple Watch Series 4.
