The ECG function on the Apple Watch Series 4 can be activated anywhere

And it is that the limitation of the Apple Watch Series 4 with the electrocardiogram function limited to the United States (when it is officially launched) could easily be used by other users who do not reside in the country and have this compatible model.

The new Apple Watch announced this new electrocardiogram (ECG) functionality thanks to De Novo's FDA qualification, which is not to say otherwise that this device will not cause harm to the user who uses it. 

This new EKG feature will be usable worldwide by simply changing the region on the device. Yes, as with some iOS applications that are only available in another country and by changing the region we can use them, with this new ECG function you can also perform. The only problem we can have is that the time and date settings change when having the device with the American region.

To do this, we will simply have to go to: Settings> General> Language and Region> Region and select "United States". In this way we will have the function active even though it is not available in our country. In the case of Spain, we talk about the end of the year or the beginning of 2019, while this happens, it can be used whenever you want thanks to the change of region. On the other hand, this is said to be available by viewing the current beta version, Apple may modify it at the time of the launch of the function so We will be attentive to confirm it.

To use this ECG in the new Apple Watch Series 4 we have to place a finger on your new digital crown while wearing the watch. In less than a minute you will be able to know your heart rate and at the same time know if it is adequate.
