The New Apple Watch Could Just Save Lives

APPLE is putting more focus on how its watch can be more than just a device that tells time and becomes a fitness guidance.

On top of refining its looks with a new stunning display, the new Apple Watch Series 4 is designed with new health features, such as Electrocardiogram and Fall Detection.

The Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS brings advanced activity and communications features, along with revolutionary health capabilities, including a new accelerometer and gyroscope, which are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor that can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the new ECG app, which has been granted a De Novo classification by the US FDA.

ECG reading

Launched together with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, the watch enables users to take an ECG reading right from the wrist using the new ECG app, which takes advantage of the electrodes built into the Digital Crown and new electrical heart rate sensor in the back crystal.

With the app, users just need to touch the Digital Crown and after 30 seconds, receive a heart rhythm classification. 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.

All recordings, their associated classifications and any noted symptoms are stored in the Health app in a PDF that can be shared with physicians.

“We’re thrilled Apple Watch has become an essential part of peoples’ lives,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.

 

Live-saving feature

With watchOS 5, Apple Watch intermittently analyses heart rhythms in the background and sends a notification if an irregular heart rhythm suggestive of AFib is detected.

It can also alert the user if the heart rate exceeds or falls below a specified threshold.

Meanwhile, its Fall detection feature utilises a next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope, which measures up to 32 g-forces, along with custom algorithms to identify when hard falls occur.

By analysing wrist trajectory and impact acceleration, the Apple Watch sends the user an alert after a fall, which can be dismissed or used to initiate a call to emergency services.

If the watch senses immobility for 60 seconds after the notification, it will automatically call emergency services and send a message along with location to emergency contacts.
