WHAT WE’RE LOV­ING ABOUT THE NEW AP­PLE WATCH SE­RIES 4

Best Health - - FITNESS NEWS -

FALL DE­TEC­TION

Thanks to a new ac­celerom­e­ter and gy­ro­scope, the watch can de­tect a fall and will prompt you with an emer­gency SOS op­tion so you can call for help (or dis­miss if you’re OK). Took more than a stum­ble? If you’re im­mo­bile for more than 60 sec­onds, it will au­to­mat­i­cally alert emer­gency ser­vices with your lo­ca­tion.

AU­TO­MATIC WORK­OUT DE­TEC­TION

How many times have you started a work­out but for­got­ten to launch your app?

(If you don’t log it, does it even count?) New auto work­out de­tec­tion will nudge you if the watch thinks you’ve started a new ac­tiv­ity and you’ll be retroac­tively cred­ited with calo­ries-burned and ac­tiv­ity min­utes. Score!

ECG APP

The Se­ries 4 has an elec­tri­cal heart sen­sor, al­low­ing you to take your own elec­tro­car­dio­gram (ECG) — from your wrist. How­ever, Cana­di­ans have to wait a bit longer to en­joy this fea­ture since it’s await­ing Health Canada ap­proval.
