Domestic technology, if used properly, can make our lives much easier. Until now, the focus has always been on the field of productivity , to accomplish tasks more quickly and efficiently, leaving aside the field of health. But with the advent of smart watches and bracelets like the Apple Watch, great advances are being made.

These devices, which previously only seemed useful if you were an athlete, are increasingly present in the lives of all types of people , regardless of their level of physical activity, profession or age. Just look at how different the profiles of users with an Apple Watch are, telling testimonials about how the watch has saved their lives.

The Apple Watch was also a sports-focused device until the Series 4 arrived. This model included some life-saving features , such as the fall detector and the ECG function that allows you to perform electrocardiograms by placing a finger on the digital crown. However, this last feature is only available in very few territories such as the United States, although this could soon change.

Ming-Chi Kuo is a well-known analyst who often makes predictions about upcoming Apple releases and events. His latest prediction features the next generation iPhone . He claims that the company will once again introduce three devices with the same screen dimensions, namely: 5.8, 6.1 and 6.5 inches.

According to MacRumors, new smartphone features include a triple rear camera and improved Face ID. But he didn’t just talk about the new iPhones, but also referred to the Apple Watch .

He has hardly given any details about the next generation, apart from an alleged model made of ceramic and that the main supplier would be USI. What is really interesting is the ECG function, which looks like it will reach more countries this 2019 .

If these functions are approved for use in home devices in Europe, for example, it should be sufficient for all EU member countries to allow their use. It should be remembered, however, that this is only a prediction, and that it does not always come true. If it is not yet available even in Canada, namely when it will be available in Spain .
