    Today, Apple told The Canadian Press that it aims to bring ECG functionality “as fast as possible” to Apple Watch Series 4 devices in Canada.

    The news comes after the ECG app and irregular heart rhythm notifications on the Apple Watch Series 4 were approved by Health Canada this month, clearing the way for the features to be released in the country.

    Health Canada has classified the Apple Watch Series 4 as a Class II medical device that places it alongside other products such as contact lenses in the “low to medium risk” category.

    Apple launched the. ECG app in the U.S as part of watchOS 5.1.2 in December. In March 2019, it expanded to 19 European countries and Hong Kong, and last week five more European countries.

    The ECG app is designed to enable Apple Watch Series 4 readers to place a finger on the Digital Crown for a single-lead ECG reading that can detect atrial fibrillation, a condition that may indicate major health issues. Irregular heart rhythm notifications are a separate feature intended to let users know whether an unusual heart rhythm is detected in order to seek medical attention.
