New Apple Watch with built-in ECG

I was impressed by the new Apple Watch series 4 they presented yesterday. Bigger display, but not bigger outside measures. Slightly thinner. An electrocardiogram reader, approved by the FCC, built-in to monitor your heart health. I thought that would be a couple of years into the future. I expect that to save more lives when a watch can warn you of suspicious heart activity. The Apple Watch already could warn of some heart rate issues. ECG is a great addition.

What do you think of the new Apple Watch series 4? Do you want one? I recently bought the series 3 so I will sit out on this one.

It looks very nice but I am still a bit opposed to the square screen design. I like my Garmin watch Glad

Do you use an analog watch face or a digital one?

#4 I was thinking the same thing haha.

My little sisters had the Series 1 recently, and I thought they were really good! If finances allow I would love one Laughing

#3: Isn't a round watch face a bit impractical then?

#4: It's short for electrocardiogram. You know, when they put electrodes on the chest to measure heart current pulses.

#5: Yes, they aren't cheap.

You're like Staffan. He chooses design over function every time when there's a conflict. I am the opposite and don't understand what good a gorgeous butter knife does if it can't be used to butter bread. :-)

Lol, that must be one heck of a butter knife if it can't butter bread Laughing out loud Just imagining a crazy not flat and pointy object that just destroys the bread when you try to butter it. Laughing out loud

Yes, twice as efficient with the double blade according to the marketing.
