Here’s A List Of Countries That Support Apple Watch ECG Feature

Countries That Support ECG App

With the release of watchOS 6.2.5 or later and later software update for all Apple Watches, Apple has finally brought Apple Watch Series 4 and Series 5’s ECG feature to new regions. With today’s release the company has made the feature accessible in 36 countries and territories.

As you may recall the ECG feature was one of the most anticipated and exciting features of the Series 4, however with Apple’s announcement that it will be limited to the US at launch due to regulatory issues was upsetting for users from other countries.

Now with the expansion of the feature in other parts of the world millions of new Series 4 and Series 5 users can take advantage of this potentially life saving feature.

In addition to adding the ECG app watchOS 6+ will also be offering irregular heartbeat notifications. You can learn more about how to take ECG readings and best practices here.

The fact that Apple has been able to get regulatory approvals for such a long list of countries is nothing short of remarkable, although it would have been relatively easier since most of them belong to the EU.

A few months ago we reported how it could take years for Apple to gain approval in the UK, however Apple has proved everyone wrong by getting the feature to its UK users in mere months.
