Apple Watch’s ECG feature may hit Wear OS

Apple Watch

Apple Watch is a great wearable on the market. Apple is now leading the wearable market with over 60 percent share. Last year, Apple finally debuted its fourth generation Apple Watch after months of leaks and rumors. The latest generation Apple Watch is a huge upgrade over its predecessors out there with new hardware, a bigger screen, and a redesigned Digital Crown.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is expected to make a gigantic hit on the market. One of the biggest health features coming to Series 4 lies in the ability to take an electrocardiogram (ECG). However, the feature was not ready when the Apple Watch 4 released to the public last year. Luckily, the watchOS 5.1.2 update marked the return of the ECG app, allowing users to get a detailed picture of their heart rhythm.

According to the latest sources, Apple Watch’s ECG feature might be available on Wear OS. In reality, Google’s wearable operating system lacks a few important health features that make Apple Watch more capable. Reports claim that Google has been working on its own ECG feature that will allow users to record their heart rhythm. In reality, Google is expected to announce the Pixel Watch this year. Last year, rumored claimed that the new Pixel Watch would make its debut in March, but it was nowhere to be found. The Pixel Watch may feature an ECG feature at launch to take on the Apple Watch. Sources say that the release of the Pixel Watch will boost the smartwatch market.

Apple will launch the next generation Apple Watch this year. Rumors regarding the Series 5 have been out there for months. The upcoming Apple Watch 5 is rumored to retain the same design language as Series 4 while featuring smaller bezels and on-screen buttons. This means that Apple will remove the physical buttons from its smartwatch in favor of a bigger screen. Last year, Apple redesigned its iPad Pro lineup with no home buttons. In reality, the 2018 iPad Pro takes some design hints from the iPhone X. Sources say that Apple will do the same thing on its MacBook Pro and Apple Watch this year.
