Apple Confirms Apple Watch ECG Function Coming to Canada ‘As Quickly as Possible’

Apple Confirms Apple Watch ECG Function Coming to Canada ‘As Quickly as Possible’

Apple on Friday confirmed that it plans to activate the Apple Watch Series 4 ECG feature for users in Canada, after receiving approval from the country’s “Health Canada” regulatory body.

ALthough the Cupertino firm didn’t disclose a specific timeline for launch, it told The Canadian Press that the rollout would happen “as quickly as possible.”

The confirmation comes three days after Health Canada granted Apple a pair of licenses for ECG-related Apple Watch functions.

A Health Canada representative confirmed that the government agency’s medical device section has approved two Apple licenses but referred questions about Canadian release dates to the manufacturer.

A person with knowledge of Apple’s procedures said the heart features of the Apple Watch Series 4 will be enabled in Canada when the company updates the watch’s operating system software but the timing of the update wasn’t known.
