New Apple watch 4 can help doctors monitor your heart in real time

The Apple Watch 4 that was unveiled Wednesday will include electrocardiogram testing. Often referred to as an EKG or ECG, this is how health care providers check the electricity in a patient’s heart. To a layman, these are the squiggly lines across a monitor.

       While the Apple watch comes out later this month, Apple said the ECG app will be available in the United States later this year. The company also said the app received a type of classification from the Food and Drug Administration that allows the release of low- to moderate-risk devices.


The Apple Watch joined the market in 2015 and already has become the leader in the crowded field of smartwatches, many of which already measure pulse rate. As competition seeks to catch up or get ahead on the technologies offered, further refinements to heart monitoring could become available.
