Apple Smartwatch

Apple has launched its new smartwatch Apple Watch Series 4 yesterday for sale in a large number of countries around the world, but one of the best new features will not be available, the ECG for measuring the electrical activity of the heart, which received the authorization of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at the moment , But will be enabled later by an update that the company will launch for the hour in the coming weeks, and this applies only to the United States of America, meaning that users in other countries will not be able to take advantage of the new feature.

Now Apple is also in talks with Health Canada to enable the ECG in the future for users there, and the Canadian authority sees it as more cautious than the US Food and Drug Administration, so it is not certain that this feature will be approved.

Apple Watch Series 4 is the first non-medical device to offer ECG, so the company needs certification from local authorities in each country.
