iOS 12.2 Suggests ECG App May Be Coming to European Countries With watchOS 5.2

After installing iOS 12.2, some Apple Watch Series 4 owners in the UK are seeing new ECG screens that suggest ECG functionality will expand to the Apple Watch in the country when watchOS 5.2 is released.

Documentation found on iOS 12.2 released earlier today that describes regulatory information for the ECG feature mentions that the feature “is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.1.2 or later” for US regions, but it also mentions that “for non-US regions “the ECG app is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.2, paired with iPhone 5s or later with iOS 12.2 or later”.

There’s documentation in the Health app in iOS 12.2 under ECG’s “Instructions for Use” that also hints at upcoming support for the UK and other European countries:

  • For US Regions: The ECG app is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.1.2 or later, paired with iPhone 5s or later or iOS 12.1.1 or later.
  • For non-US regions: The ECG app is available on Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5.2 paired with iPhone 5s or iOS 12.2 or later.
