The ECG function could reach the Apple Watch Series 4 in European countries in watchOS 5.2

Apple Watch Series 4

Many users who own the Apple Watch Series 4 were dissatisfied with Apple for not including a relevant feature in the Series 4 from the start. We are talking about the ECG function or explained in another way, the possibility of performing a electrocardiogram placing your finger on the crown of the watch.

Today this function is only available in USA only. As Apple has to certify the procedure with the health authorities of each nation. Little by little Apple is closing deals and the forecasts allow to forecast a implementation of the service in several European countries in the coming months

This update would be available with the arrival of watchOS 5.2, if we stick to information collected in the features of iOS 12.2 that has been published today. Until now, when the service is described, it was indicated that the service "is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.1.2 or later" always mentioning the US regions. But the novelty is found in this version , when you add that it will also be available "For non-Americans" with the following message: "ECG application is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.2, paired with iPhone 5s or later with iOS 12.2 or later"

Therefore, it is most likely to see the function gradually in other countries, starting with the release of watchOS 5.2. Another sample that allows a glimpse of ECG in European countries is the mention of the CE mark that includes the countries of the European economic market, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. This change is expected to occur throughout the week.

From what was reported by the developers and Apple itself regarding the watchOS 5.2 betas (It is currently in beta 6) we did not find great news, beyond the always necessary updates to correct errors and updates for the correct operation of third-party applications that run on the Apple Watch.
