Further, the Series 4 features fall detection sensor that sends emergency SOS messages and calls in case if the user falls. It has second-generation heart rate sensor mounted on its backside that sends out notification onto the screen about the pulse and registers abnormal pulses followed by an electrode that brings the capability of having an Electrocardiogram (ECG) on a watch.
Apple stated that it has already received certifications from FDA for that matter.
