In September of this year, Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 4. New smart watch is the first in its class built-in ECG scanner. However, soon after release it became known that to work this feature will be only in the US. At the same time information about when ECG scanner will be available in other regions were not. But if you believe the developer Guilherme Rambo, then activate the feature outside the US quite easily.
After examining the code of Apple’s operating system, Guilherme Rambo found that to activate the function of measuring the ECG does not only give the regional settings. In terms of toppings watches for the US and, for example, Germany is no different. Therefore, to obtain the possibility of measuring ECG, users just need to change the region. You can do this in Settings – General – Language and region – select USA.
It should be noted that the change of the region affects some system settings. In particular, the format of the date, time and other units. However, if you try out a new ability you really want, you method is working perfectly.
It should be noted that to date, the function of ECG is not running Apple’s. In addition, data on the possible workaround of the limitation was derived from the beta wartchOS. and after the final release, this method will no longer work.
