Apple Watch is your health partner
The Apple Watch is more than just a watch. It tells time, yes, but it also reminds you to breathe, monitors your heart rate, taps you if noise levels rise, helps you keep track of your period and inspires you to live a healthier lifestyle. It’s the first watch that really watches out for you.
ECG on your wrist. Anytime, anywhere
With the ECG app,Apple Watch Series 5 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single-lead electrocardiogram. It’s a momentous achievement for a wearable device that can provide critical data for doctors and peace of mind for you.
Your finger can tell you a lot about your heart.
Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG app can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.
It has your heart in mind
Unusually high or low heart rates and irregular heart rhythms (known as arrhythmias) could be signs of a serious condition. But many people don’t recognize the symptoms, so the underlying causes often go undiagnosed. With new notifications in the Heart Rate app, Apple Watch Series 5 can check your heart and alert you to these irregularities — so you can take action and consult your doctor.
Track your cycle with a tap
The Cycle Tracking App gives you insight into your menstrual cycle and can help provide a clearer picture of your overall health. In addition to simply ensuring that you’re prepared, you’ll have more information to help you track irregularities and symptoms and enrich discussions with your doctor.
Safe from sound
Noise can rise to levels that may impact your hearing without your even realizing it. The new Noise app senses when the roar of the crowd or the rumble of machinery reaches a level that may pose a risk. So you can step out or plug up to give your ears a needed break.
Take a breather
Taking moments throughout the day to stop, relax, and practice mindfulness can help reduce stress and improve overall health. The Breathe app keeps you centered by leading you through a series of calming breaths. It’s also available as a watch face, so you can bring focus to your day just by raising your wrist.
A more personal Health app. For a more informed you
With the redesigned Health app on iPhone, it’s easier than ever to access the information that matters most to you. Now you can see automatically generated highlights of how your health data is trending over time.
Apple Watch Series 5 can detect that you’ve fallen. When an incident like this occurs, a hard fall alert is delivered, and you can easily initiate a call to emergency services or dismiss the alert. If you’re unresponsive after 60 seconds, the emergency call will be placed automatically. Your emergency contacts will then be notified and sent your location.
International emergency calling
Now you can complete a call to emergency services almost anywhere in the world. Just press and hold the side button on Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular and you’ll be connected with the help you need. It even works if you’re nowhere near your iPhone.
