    Obviously not in 5.1, Apple said "coming soon", but didn't specify how soon.

    Where is it? On the site it originally said 5.1. Someone on these forums pointed it out. Getting kinda ridiculous it’s still not here.

    Appleinsider corrected the article saying it's not available with 5.1 :(.

    In the article it states “that’s what we get for relying on a press release.” So Apple did say it was in with their recent press release ?

    There wasn’t a press release for 5.1 - nowhere in the Apple Newsroom at least.

    Maybe they had to pull it from the update after it was reported that it could be enabled by changing the region to US...

    I’m doubtful - thinking it was just sloppy reporting assuming it’d be in the update

    What might have happened is that the WatchOS 5.1 is the OS that supports this but - the trick here is that what we now need is an ECG app, which Apple still did not release.

    "ECG app coming later this year."

    Yep pretty sure that actually said “ECG enables in 5.1 in their keynote. It was in their fine print and everyone pointed it out constantly.

    I wonder if it’s a Watch app we need to download separately. Much like the shortcuts app?

    Why? They said by the end of the year. They haven’t broken that promise yet.
