Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 6 just a couple of days ago, complete with a new blood oxygen monitoring feature. According to a newly updated support document online, it seems that everyone will be able to make use of that feature regardless of where they are.
Sometimes Apple has to hold certain features back until local health authorities have given it the green light, but with the blood oxygen monitor not being medical grade, that isn’t the case here.
As a result, it’ll be available in more than 100 countries from day one.
The ECG feature is something that has been available in many countries for some time, ever since Apple Watch Series 4. But it does need regulatory approval and it just received exactly that in a host more countries. Now, people in Colombia, Israel, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates can all take advantage of the feature for the first time.
That’s excellent news for people in those countries, especially with Apple Watch’s ECG feature already saving lives around the globe. It’s designed to detect atrial fibrillation, or AFib, and picking it up early can give patients the chance to undergo the right treatment before it’s too late.
The new Apple Watch Series 6 is available for pre-order now, with wearables set to arrive on the wrists of early buyers by the end of the week.
