    Workout Tracking

    With the Apple Watch, you can track all your activities such as walking, running, cycling, rowing and even high-intensity interval training. With the Workout app on the Apple Watch, you get real-time feedback of various exercise metrics such as distance covered, altitude, heart rate and more.

    Heart Rate Monitoring and ECG

    Apple Watch can not only monitor your heart-rate but it can now take on-the-go ECG to monitor your heart-rate if it elevates. There have been many cases in the past where this feature has saved a person's life by tracking and alerting of irregular heart-rate.
