Apple Watch ECG: Demo

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

What's up guys Mike here the Detroit Borg with a quick video taking a look at the future I couldn't demonstrate with the series for Apple watch when it first launched so watch OS 5 point 1 point 2 finally brings us the EKG feature which allows the new hardware on the series for Apple watch to measure your electrical heart signals so as a reminder the series for watch has both an optical heart rate sensor which measures your heart rate but also has several built in electrical leads so for example the back crystal has electrodes in the back which makes contact with your wrist

There's also another electrode in the digital crown which completes the circuit for measuring the electrical activity of your heart so once you're updated you'll see a new app appear on the Apple watch this is the EKG app and when you first launch it you're prompted to go back to the health app on your iPhone to set it up for the first time so the sailor process really just involves establishing your date of birth so it knows how old you are and then it explains exactly how this works how to use it and what the results mean so the primary function of an electrocardiogram

Is to make sure that the upper and lower atriums of your heart are beating and sink or beating normally so if you have a healthy or normal heart rhythm you should be in sinus rhythm a fib or atrial fibrillation is the most common form of serious arrhythmia now if it detects this you definitely want to get a check down if your heart rate is below 50 beats per minute or about 120 beats per minute the app cannot detect a fib accurately and if you get inconclusive it just means it wasn't able to measure your heart rate accurately or there's something else going on that it can't

Classify now if you get this it probably just means your Apple watch is too loose or you're moving around and not resting your arms on the table as instructed now if you plan to use the EKG often what you might want to do is add the complication to your watch face so that's a nice quick shortcut of getting right to the app so to measure your EKG just make sure your Apple watch is nice and snug against your skin and then all you have to do is activate the app and press your finger the opposite finger against the digital crown this completes the circuit across your body so it can

Measure your electrical activity and as I learned straight away you have to be sitting down with your arms laying flat on the table so you cannot be moving at all in order for this to work and if you don't follow these instructions precisely you're gonna get inconclusive results over and over again so it takes about 30 second to record your EKG and you can see a live readout of your EKG on the screen to me that's pretty amazing in fact you can go right to your EKG printout and save this and share it with your doctor another thing you can do with your EKG

Readings is specify any symptoms you might have so for example if you have any fluttering and you rapid heartbeat you can actually mention that in your EKG recording now for most people this is just a nice feature to have but for me it's actually pretty useful because I suffer from a few conditions which need to be monitored so for example I have a rapid heartbeat as you can see in these readings which I take medication for I also have to visit my doctor's regularly for an EKG reading so they hook me up to a machine and measure it and save it for my records but now I have full access to

It all the time this also means that instead of carrying a 24-hour heart monitor which I've had to do in the past and say when I'm running into symptoms I can record my EKG and save it and share it with my doctor and since I've spent half my life dealing with a specific medical issue it's kind of amazing that technology makes it easier for me to monitor it alright guys hope you enjoyed this look at the EKG feature on the series for Apple watch I'm pretty excited that we finally have it if you guys enjoyed this video please give it a like to let me know and I'll see you

Again in my next video
