The latest update version 7.6 for watchOS is now rolling out to Apple Watch users. The update brings several new changes, features and bug fixes.
The major change though is the added support for ECG app support and irregular heart rate notification in more regions.
Apple added support for Australia, Japan, Peru, Philippines, Vietnam, and other countries earlier this year with watchOS 7.4 update. Now, with watchOS 7.6, it is adding 30 more countries, which are as follows:
Antigua & Barbuda
St. Kitts & Nevis
St. Vincent & Grenadines
French Southern Territories
Isle of Man
Also, the ECG app has been approved by China’s health regulatory agency, according to a report by 9to5Mac and it might make its way to China later this year with watchOS 8 update.
Those who don’t know, ECG stands for electrocardiography and it is used to do electrocardiograms. It helps measure electrical pulses of the heart. Basically it’s a graph of voltage versus time of electrical activity of the heart.
