Apple Watch Series 4: What cardiologist think about it?

Williams Chief Operating Officer of Apple, speaks about the new Apple Watch Series 4 at an Apple Inc product launch in Cupertino

"This update really establishes the company's increasing efforts to push the watch as a serious medical device".

The Apple Watch 4 packs a new heart rate sensor and it also includes the ability to take an Electrocardiogram right on your wrist at any time.

The Apple launch event of 2018 unveiled the 3 new iPhones - iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr. Apple doesn't release sales figures, but estimates from twoanalysts suggest the company shipped roughly 18 million of the gadgets in 2017. When this is compared with Samsung or Google smartwatches, it has been seen that they perform well.

"The Apple Watch continues to improve and provide additional relevant functions". With this new processor, it is said that it may enable the multi-day battery life that can be extended till a week or more than that. The fall detection feature can even make an emergency call after the device detects a fall.

EKGs are important tests of heart health and typically require a visit to the doctor. He said such real-time data would change the way doctors work.

For a market that is growing, these features in wearables will matter more and more.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is essentially a super-charged version of the Apple Watch 3; it can run more apps simultaneously and will do so faster, it's got a more ergonomic design and there's a greater variety of complications available. The iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch OLED with 2,436 by 1,125 pixels and the iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch OLED with 2,688 by 1,242 pixels.

Another bit of good news is that the new Series 4 will be fully compatible with older bands.

The two FDA-approved Apple apps monitor for atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm irregularity that can lead to stroke. To take an ECG reading, the wearer simply has to touch the device's Digital Crown for 30 seconds, with the recordings stored in Apple's Health app.

"I've had to tell patients: Just take off the Fitbit and don't look at the data", said Gregory Marcus, a cardiologist and director of clinical research in cardiology at the University of California San Francisco. So, on one level that certainly sounds promising for a product that Apple is trying to position as "an intelligent guardian for your health".

The debut of the new Watch line comes just days after Apple said in a letter to the USA government that proposed tariffs on goods imported from China could raise the price of Apple Watches and other Apple products.

Apple has launched a suite of three equally exciting new iPhones that it hopes will broaden demand for its smartphones. In addition to a fall sensor, which will notice when you have an accident and call emergency services if need be, an ECG feature is built in to the device which can calculate your heart rhythm. Cellular Series 3 models can standalone from an iPhone as they connect to their own network whereas the regular Global Positioning System models need an iPhones data to connect to via bluetooth.
