The biggest update is more countries get ECG support, the latter being Malaysia and Peru. ECG has been a feature on the Apple Watch since Apple Watch Series 4.

ECG on the Apple Watch tests and records the timing and strength of the electrical signals that make a heartbeat. The feature is now available in 87 countries and regions.
