New Apple Watch 4 Is A FDA Class 2 Medical Device Due To New Features

Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the new Apple Watch Series 4 that was unveiled will also serve as a medical device with fall detection and 3 new heart monitoring capabilities: low heart rate alert, heart rhythm detection, and a personal electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor.

The newly introduced fall feature in the watch according to Apple COO Jeff Williams, will be able to detect a fall thanks to a new accelerometer and gyroscope "whether you slip off a stepladder or you trip on a curve, a hard fall can be serious and it can be difficult to get immediate help.” he continues “And after detecting a fall, series 4 delivers an alert and from that alert, you can initiate an emergency call,” said Williams. “However if the watch senses you are immobile for 1 minute, it will start the call automatically and it also sends a message with your locations to your emergency contacts using the SOS feature that is already built into Apple Watch."
