AFib History, a new function on Apple Watch Series is now accessible in India. The features will be available on Apple Watch Series 4 and later for users on watchOS 9. This Apple Watch feature will allow users to track how frequently their heart rhythm exhibits atrial fibrillation (AFib) symptoms.

According to the company, the new function will only be available on Apple Watches running WatchOS 9 and newer. Indian users need to make sure their iPhones are running iOS 16.

A type of abnormal heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation (AFib) occurs when the upper and lower chambers of the heart do not beat in sync. Some with this disease show symptoms and some don’t. Others report signs including a racing heartbeat, palpitations, exhaustion, or shortness of breath. It is said to be the most common type of serious arrhythmia.

Although AFib is a chronic illness, the duration of AFib might vary. Regular exercise, enough sleep, a heart-healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting treatment for various medical disorders that could exacerbate AFib all have the potential to lessen the amount of time your heart is in AFib. AFib can cause heart failure or blood clots that may result in a stroke if left untreated.

How does it work?

AFib History is a first-of-its-kind service for people who have already been diagnosed with AFib that can track how long your heart has been in AFib and also improve the management of crucial lifestyle factors.

Potential symptoms of AFib can be recognised through the Apple Watch’s ECG app and irregular rhythm warning.

AFib History, also known as AFib burden, provides you with a weekly estimate of the amount of time your heart exhibits AFib-related symptoms. You can keep track of this over time and discuss it with your doctor to have more in-depth conversations. Although AFib can happen at any time, there are some things that may affect how frequently your heart displays AFib symptoms.
