This, added to the infinity of sports functions, make the Apple Watch one of the best smartwatches on the market. If you don’t have one yet, don’t miss out on this opportunity! Now you can get the Apple Watch Series 6 with 100 euros discount.

This last tool allows the Apple Watch to check if the user’s heart rate remains above or below the recommended rate while it has been inactive for 10 minutes.
It is important to note that the ECG application and irregular heart rhythm notifications are available for all Apple Watch Series 4 or later. So, once this is clarified, which are the countries that benefit from the update of watchOS to 7.6 ?:

Fun fact is that the EKG function was recently approved by China’s health regulatory agency, but Apple did not include this Asian country within the countries benefited by the latest watchOS update. However, some users who have been able to test the watchOS 8 Beta version in China reported that they have used the ECG function. So it’s all a matter of time before users living in China can have these tools on their Apple Watch.
