The United States Apple announced on the 22nd in the company’s Apple Watch that the electrocardiogram function (ECG) will be available in Japan as well. It is said that the functions will be available with the upcoming update of the basic software (OS). ECG is one of the functions of Apple Watch, and has been introduced in the United States and other countries since 2018.

In addition to the latest “Series 6” of Apple Watch, the conventional models Series 5 and 4 also support ECG. Launch the app and touch the knob of the watch with your fingertip for 30 seconds to display the electrocardiogram.

A mechanism that displays four types of indications: “normal”, “atrial fibrillation is occurring”, “heart rate is too low”, and “heart rate is too high”. “Atrial fibrillation” is a type of arrhythmia.

Even if you don’t start the app, it automatically checks the rhythm of your heartbeat at any time, and if you suspect atrial fibrillation, you will be notified.
