Countries where the ECG function of Apple Watch Series 4 is already available

Apple Watch Series 4

With the release of version 5.2 of the Apple Watch, the guys from Cupertino have activated the long-awaited function to perform electrocardiograms from our wrist as long as we have an Apple Watch Series 4. This function is now available in Spain, but not exclusively, since it has also reached more European countries.

Yes, still You have doubts how to activate, how it works or what the ECG is, my partner Jordi explains it to you in this article. This function was initially only available in the United Statess, and in the devices bought in American territory, it was useless to change the region. Three months after its launch in December, it is now available in 20 new countries.

With the release of watchOS version 5.2 now available in 19 European countries besides in Hong Kong. If you live in one of the following countries, you can start using this function:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom

That Apple has been able to add so many countries in just 4 months is appreciated and should give hope to all those users who enjoy the Apple Watch but who still can't use the ECG function. It must be taken into account that this function must overcome different processes that vary according to the countries.

Apple has been able to activate this new feature because all countries are based on the guidelines set by the European Union, which has allowed passing the tests of only one organization, to launch this function in 19 countries together.

Presumably, Apple continues working in the rest of the countries where he currently has the Apple Watch Series 4 to be able to pass the necessary tests to be able to activate this new function that was one of the main novelties, along with the new screen size, of the fourth generation of the Apple Watch.
