Garmin expands ECG app compatibility, now available to its smartwatches in Singapore

Selected Garmin smartwatches in Singapore can finally use its ECG App function.

Good news for Garmin users using one of their powerful sports tracking smartwatches — the coveted ECG App is now available to select Garmin watches in Singapore.

Garmin users in Singapore can now record a 30-second ECG (electrocardiogram) and view the results instantly on their watch or within the Garmin Connect smartphone app. The ECG function allows users to check their heart rhythm and look for signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib). This differs from standard heart rate monitoring, which only gives a snapshot of your beats per minute.

“We are pleased to bring the ECG App to even more of our users, including those with our flagship epix Pro and fēnix 7 Pro series smartwatches. We take pride in offering premium health and wellness features across our smartwatch lineups and this tool that lets our users in Singapore conveniently take an ECG recording when they want only adds to the suite of innovative features to help them stay on top of their health,” said Scoppen Lin, Assistant General Manager, Garmin Asia.
