The ECG feature measures the electrical activity of a user’s heart. Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) recently added Apple to its list of “certified entities.” That likely is related to the health feature. Meanwhile, Apple was registered in Brazil back on March 25. It all indicates that there will be an update to watchOS that brings the ECG function to those countries in the not too distant future.
