watchOS 5.2.1 Now Available with Support for ECG in More Countries


watchOS 5.2.1 has just been released for Apple Watch and it brings with it a handful of new features including ECG to even more countries.

Apple Watch is a game-changing wearable, there's no doubt in that. In order to keep things ticking along nice, Apple releases software updates to ensure that everyone gets a chance to experience the best there is in the world of wearables. And today, the Cupertino company has released a brand new software update for Apple Watch, dubbed watchOS 5.2.1.

watchOS 5.3.1, tvOS 12.4.1 and macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update Released

Here is the complete changelog of the update, straight from the Watch app on the iPhone.

Now that's out of the way, it's time we show you how you can download the latest update onto your Apple Watch. First and foremost, it's important to know that this update is not available for Series 0 Appel Watch. If you have Series 1, Series 2, Series 3 or Series 4, then you can go right ahead and enjoy watchOS 5.2.1. Just place your Apple Watch on the magnetic charger, connect to WiFi, launch the Watch app, navigate to General > Software Update, and download watchOS 5.2.1 from here.

The download and installation may take a while if you have an Apple Watch other than Series 4, so be patient while the wheels are in motion. I highly recommend that you do not tinker around with the Apple Watch while it is on its magnetic charger. Once the installation is complete, you'll hear a ding sound, after which you can start using your Apple Watch normally.

This update might not shine brightly with a lot of users, but those with a Series 4 Apple Watch may find it extremely handy, thanks to support for ECG in even more countries. Health has been the company's core focus with the Apple Watch, and with ECG now available in even more countries, it's a great sign that those with irregular heart rhythms will be able to get treatment immediately after a quick diagnosis from the convenience of their homes.

It's best that you install the update right away if you live in one of the countries where ECG is now available. It's a handy feature and will only come in handy down the line to keep tabs on heart-related problems.
