Apple Watch Series 4 inspires you to live a healthier life by helping you manage everything from everyday stress to calories burned. At the same time, it lets you check your heart rate and notifies you if it’s above or below your specified threshold. And that sense of security now goes a step further with Fall Detection and Emergency SOS. Apple Watch has your back — as well as your heart.

ECG on your wrist. Anytime, anywhere.

With the ECG app,* Apple Watch Series 4 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single-lead electrocardiogram. It’s a momentous achievement for a wearable device that can provide critical data for doctors and peace of mind for you.

Your finger can tell you a lot about your heart.

Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG app can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.

Digital Crown Electrode. The Digital Crown contains a titanium electrode that reads the electrical heart impulses in your fingertip.
Back Crystal Electrodes. An ultra-thin chromium silicon carbon nitride layer applied to the sapphire crystal reads the electrical heart impulses in your wrist.

Electrical sensors read the beats.

Each beat of the heart sends out an electrical impulse. With the ECG app, Apple Watch Series 4 can read and record these impulses by connecting the circuit between your heart and both arms. The resulting ECG waveform, its classification and any notes you’ve entered on related symptoms are automatically stored in the Health app on your iPhone. You can share them with your doctor and have a better-informed conversation about your health.

It has your heart in mind.

Unusually high or low heart rates and irregular heart rhythms (known as arrhythmias) could be signs of a serious condition. But many people don’t recognise the symptoms, so the underlying causes often go undiagnosed. With new notifications in the Heart Rate app, Apple Watch Series 4 can check your heart and alert you to these irregularities — so you can take action and consult your doctor.

Track all your health data in one convenient place.

All your heart data, as well as information from your health and fitness apps, is collected in your iPhone Health app. Activity, sleep, mindfulness and nutrition are highlighted there in one snapshot. Learn more about the

Fall Detection.

With the accelerometer and gyroscope, Apple Watch Series 4 can detect if you’ve fallen. When an incident like this occurs, a hard fall alert is delivered, and you can easily initiate a call to emergency services or dismiss the alert. If you’re unresponsive after 60 seconds, the emergency call will be placed automatically and a message with your location will be sent to your emergency contacts.

Emergency SOS.

Emergency SOS allows you to quickly get help. It calls 999, notifies your emergency contacts, sends your current location, and displays your Medical ID badge on the screen for emergency personnel. And Apple Watch Series 4 with cellular does it all even when you’re away from your phone.

Fill your lungs. Clear your mind.

Taking moments throughout the day to stop, relax and practise mindfulness can help reduce stress and improve overall health. The Breathe app keeps you centred by taking you through a series of calming breaths. It’s now available as a watch face, so you can bring focus to your day just by raising your wrist.

Apps that make health the first priority.

The right apps can play an important role in reminding you to keep up with healthy routines. Whether you want to drink more water, improve your sleep or better manage a condition like diabetes, there’s an app designed to help you prioritise your goal.
