How to see battery percentage when charging Apple Watch in Nightstand mode
“Tiny Apple Watch tip. TLDR is, try tapping the charging icon on your Apple Watch when it is in Nightstand mode (plugged in, on its side, showing the time in big letters). It’ll replace the lightning bolt with an exact charge percentage, similar to what shows in the charge complication.

“Tiny tip, thought you might find this interesting.”

Heading to a cardiologist..... : AppleWatch • Reddit
<p>If you have the Apple Watch 4 please please update to the new firmware released yesterday and take your ECG.

I did last night and tried it out. Weird. Abnormal heat rate notifications. Ran the ECG app and came back afib. Well...glitchy firmware. Let’s try again. Afib. Again and again and again. Piece of crap watch.

My wife wakes up and I put it on her. Normal. Normal. Me afib. Try the other wrist, try the underside of the wrist. Every time afib warning.

Ok. So go to Patient First. Parking lot full and I’m going to blow it off and head home. Look at the watch again, afib again.

Fine walk in and sign in. They ask what’s wrong and I’m embarrassed. ‘Ok so there is a new watch feature....hahaha....I’m silly but can we check this?”

I did not know that this comment was a quick queue pass for Patient First. I’m taken right back and hooked up. The technician looks at the screen and says “I’m going to get the doctor”</p>


Yup, he had atrial fibrillation. Discovering these from day one is pretty impressive.

Rowing with Apple Watch is like two workouts in one. Time to grab an oar.
Currently, Apple Watch only offers one type of built-in rowing workout, called “Rower,” for use with an indoor rowing machine (also known as an ergometer or “erg” in rowing jargon). If you were hoping to log a workout in an actual boat, you’re out of luck.

That’s a bit disappointing considering that with running, cycling and swimming, you can choose between indoor and outdoor workout types. Another disappointment: The Workout app lacks some of the most important rowing metrics, including distance and pace. The only stats you get from Apple are duration, calories and heart rate.

Apple’s newest Watch features will transform heart health • WIRED
Robbie Gonzalez:
<p>Apple Watch's new features [enabled via a software update this week] are designed to help users spot signs of an irregular heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation—AFib, for short. It's the most common form of arrhythmia, with upwards of 6 million diagnoses in America alone, a number that is expected to increase to 12 million by 2030. It’s also associated with increased risk of serious health problems like stroke.

Plus it’s underdiagnosed. Conservative estimates predict that 700,000 Americans are affected by AFib and don't even know it, but many experts think the actual number is much higher. Apple thinks its wearables, which already adorn the wrists of millions of people, can help spotlight previously undiagnosed cases of AFib and enable patients with existing diagnoses to monitor their symptoms.

The company is backing those claims with two clinical trials, which it <a href="https://www.apple.com/healthcare/site/docs/Apple_Watch_Arrhythmia_Detection.pdf">describes in a white paper published on its website Thursday</a>. The first trial found that the watch's irregular rhythm notifications compared favorably to the performance of a typical, doctor-prescribed ECG patch, accurately flagging the presence of AFib and occasionally other arrhythmias. It featured 226 people, a tiny subset of patients from a much larger, and still ongoing, study conducted in collaboration with Stanford Medicine.</p>

Apple is really showing that vertical integration can pay off in early markets. Did it with the iPod, did it with the iPad, has done it with AirPods.

Note though: iPhone and Watch have to be on the latest software; Watch must have been bought in the US. Otherwise, you don't get it.

It’s not about the device.
"Is anyone actually going to use the browser on a watch, though?" Sometimes the question’s asked sincerely; more often than not, it seems to be asked skeptically. (And perhaps a little derisively.) But each time I share a link to an article about browsing on the Watch, it’s always, always asked.
