ECG app gets updated on Apple Watch

Alongside the release of Apple Fitness+ and Cardio Fitness Notifications, Apple has updated the ECG app on compatible hardware.

When opening the Health app for the first time after updating to iOS 14.3 and watchOS 14.2, there will be a banner asking you to review your health features. You’ll then notice that the ECG app has been updated, and the message says “The ECG app can now check for atrial fibrillation (Afib) at higher heart rates or let you know if your result is inconclusive due to a poor recording.”

After you click the Continue button, you’ll be reminded of all of the possible outcomes the ECG app will give you after you take an ECG, and you’ll again be reminded of the “Four Things to Remember,” with some of them including that “It cannot detect blood clots or a stroke” and “If you are not feeling well you should talk to your doctor.

The release of this update is once again helping Apple Watch remain the best smartwatch– and with all of these new health features, it’s only a matter of time before we hear of the next person whose life is saved after getting a notification that something could be of concern.
