The new Apple Watch Series 4 comes with an ECG feature, although this feature will only be available in the US at launch.
The ECG feature has been cleared by the FDA in the US, it has not been cleared by regulators in other countries like the UK.
It could take Apple some time to receive the same clearance for their Apple Watch Series 4 in the UK, it could end taking a couple of years for Apple to receive approval for the feature.
It will be interesting to see if Apple can also get the approval for the ECG feature in other countries as it has with the US. We wonder if already having FDA approval for the device could help speed up approval in more countries.
