Apple releases new Apple Watch Series 6 ad centered around ECG features

Apple has released a new  Apple Watch Series 6 ad that focuses on the ECG app and its ability to work anywhere, any time. The ad highlights how you no longer need to make an appointment to go to the doctor to get one taken thanks to the ease offered by Apple Watch.

This ad is part of the tech giant’s “The Future of Health is on Your Wrist” campaign it has been running to showcase different health features of the watch. So far, the ad has not been released on Apple’s YouTube channel, but it is slated to be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Apple releases new Apple Watch Series 6 ad on the convenience of ECG features

The short 30-second ad features a man who demonstrates how effortless it is to take an ECG anywhere, whether it be at the park, in a cinema, or even on a boat.

“The ECG app lets me take an ECG without making a fancy appointment — or a machine — or even needing to move a muscle,” he says. “Because if I want to take an electrocardiogram, I’m going to take an electrocardiogram. Right here, right now.”

Apple Watch ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a non-invasive test to record heart rhythm and electrical activity. The sensors on the smartwatch gather real-time electric signals and convert them into a recording which can be viewed on the Watch itself, or on an iPhone. If any irregularities are detected in the readings, the Watch alerts the user to consult a doctor. The readings can be exported from an iPhone in PDF format, which can be taken to a doctor for consultation and diagnosis.

“The ECG app can record your heartbeat and rhythm using the electrical heart sensor on Apple Watch Series 4, Series 5, or Series 6* and then check the recording for atrial fibrillation (AFib), a form of irregular rhythm.

The ECG app records an electrocardiogram which represents the electrical pulses that make your heart beat. The ECG app checks these pulses to get your heart rate and see if the upper and lower chambers of your heart are in rhythm. If they’re out of rhythm, that could be AFib.”

Apple Watch Series 6 was announced at Apple’s “Time Flies” event in September of 2020, and brought several changes to the popular wearable:  a powerful S6 system, brighter always-on display, and new finish options.Apple Watch Series 6
