The mechanism of the new feature is actually very simple. Apple Watch now works with an FDA-approved EKG reader in the form of a smart band (seen above) that is sold separately and requires an annual subscription to work, but building the function into the watch directly would make EKG readers accessible to more people. With EKG monitoring, the Apple Watch would be able to track electrical signals from your heart, allowing it to detect things like irregular heartbeats.
Apple's current Watch has a more basic heart rate monitor, but the company is increasingly trying to use advanced sensors to predict future afflictions, rather than simply collect historical data about the body.
Based on the ongoing internal testing, it seems Apple is very determined to make its Apple Watch a health-centric smartwatch. There's also a chance that Apple gives up on implementing the feature entirely. But they only monitor the heart's activity for short periods, limiting their ability to spot potential abnormalities. It's called the Apple Heart Study app.
By adding an EKG monitor to the Apple Watch, it may become easier to predict arrhythmias as an adjunct to what is now available. While the Kardiaband is the only medical-grade Apple Watch accessory available, the iPhone has a robust medical accessory market ranging from glucose meters to blood pressure monitors to ultrasound imaging devices. The study would monitor Apple Watch users for irregularities in their heart rates that could be symptoms of a heart condition.
