Apple Watch AFib History feature is now available in India

Check your heart’s ticking!

Apple is stepping up its game for Apple Watch users in India by rolling out an expanded AFib History feature which lets you keep tabs on how often your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib). Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a type of irregular heart rhythm where the upper chambers of the heart beat out of sync with the lower chambers.

AFib History can track the amount of time your heart is in AFib. By tracking health metrics, the AFib History feature can assist doctors in monitoring your health during regular check-ups. It also comes in handy for managing your lifestyle factors like exercise minutes, sleep patterns, weight, alcohol intake, and even those mindful minutes. Because these factors can have an impact on AFib.

If you have an Apple Watch Series 4 or a newer model in India, you can access the AFib History feature. To set it up, make sure your iPhone is updated to the latest iOS version and your Apple Watch is running the latest watchOS version. Here's what you need to do – Open the Health app on your iPhone, tap on "Browse" and then select "Heart",  then look for "AFib History" and tap on it. Tap "Set Up" and then choose "Get Started." Enter your date of birth when prompted. Indicate whether you have been diagnosed with AFib by a doctor by selecting "Yes," then tap "Continue." You'll have the option to learn more about AFib History, its results, and how it factors into your daily life. Tap "Continue" to proceed. Finally, tap "Done" to complete the setup.
