Apple's latest Watch can sense falls and heart irregularities

The current Watch 3 is already pretty health-centric, but Apple has taken it to a new level with its latest model. Thanks to a new electric heart sensor built into the backside, the Watch Series 4 can can not only detect a low heart rate, but act as an ECG (electrocardiogram), too. The Watch Series 4 has received clearance from the FDA and is the first over-the-counter ECG product offered directly to consumers, Apple said.
