In summary, the new Apple Watch looks like a great tool, but it is not meant to be a medical grade device and not a substitute for medical and professional evaluation in the case of symptoms.

The last time I interviewed Vic Gundotra was some six years ago, back when he was still the top executive at Google's not yet ghost town of a social network, Google+, and he was as Google-y as you'd expect about how awesome and wonderful it was going to be. He was referring to, according to the news site, "AliveCor's product for detecting atrial fibrillation (AFib), a tough-to-spot heart disorder that manifests as an irregular, often quick heart rate that can cause poor circulation".

With the Apple Watch Series 4, the application symbols and text styles are presently bigger, with more data displayed on the screen.

It could also lead some health insurance plans to subsidize the cost of an Apple Watch, Nguyen said. Apart from the Apple Watch Series 3, the company has also slashed the price of its iPhones.

The Swiss watch industry faces an increased threat from a new Apple Watch that is able to detect heart problems and is likely to appeal to older shoppers, Reuters reports, citing industry experts.

Eric Topol, a cardiologist and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, warned that the EKG feature could spur more tests than necessary, result in unnecessary prescriptions for blood thinners and overwhelm doctors with calls from patients who probably don't need treatment.

"Oftentimes, the first symptom is a stroke", Taylor said. With the introduction of the new smartwatch, Apple has cut down the price of Apple Watch Series 3, as it will help the company to garner more sales of its smartwatches.

In fact, the ECG app is only coming to America later this year, with other countries offering a bit of a question mark at this time.

If the wearer remains unresponsive the watch will place an emergency call and a message will be sent to designated emergency contacts.

Use the Apple Store App on your iPhone or the Apple Website to see if there is an Apple Watch 4 model that you want to buy in stock at a local Apple Store or if you can order for fast delivery.

The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over. This comes in the light of proposed U.S. tariffs Chinese goods that Apple CEO Tim Cook said would affect a "wide range" of Apple's products. On top of that, both feature long battery life, especially the iPhone Xs Max.
