Apple has added new health-oriented features to the Apple Watch in recent years, such as the ability to measure blood oxygen levels or take an ECG. Late last year, Tim Cook teased the future of the Apple Watch, saying that the device is still “in the early innings,” with Apple testing “mind blowing” capabilities in its labs. “Think about the amount of sensors in your car,” said Cook, adding “and arguably, your body is much more important than your car.”
That would be the holy grail of smart watch features.
Why would someone want to prick for blood when they can just buy an Apple Watch?
It would also be good for those with increased risk.
If Apple can pull this off it’s a game changer for the Apple Watch. It goes from being a nice accessory that has cool features to an essential health item for a great many people.
I hope this works, my wife it Type 1, and even the “medical grade” insertable/under skin sensors give wrong readings on a regular basis. Tho I don’t have a lot of hope that over-the-skin can possibly be more accurate or more reliable.
How about bring out ECG options to Australia first??
How about you take it up with the Australian health officials first. Not an Apple issue.
