Future Apple Watch models may include EKG heart monitor
Though the original Apple Watch was seemingly positioned as a high-tech fashion accessory, it's since become overwhelmingly clear that the device's health and fitness features are what many consumers enjoy most about Apple's wearable. As a result, Apple has continued to invest heavily in the Apple Watch as part of a concerted effort to make it an even more appealing and helpful health and fitness monitor.
That said, a new report from Bloomberg relays that future iterations of the Apple Watch may include advanced heart-monitoring technology better equipped at detecting and alerting users to potentially serious heart conditions. Specifically, Apple is said to be working on a feature that would effectively enable users to take quick EKG and ECG measurements directly from their wrist.
