    Why have we not seen the feature, even in the beta? Makes me wonder if they ever intend to release the app update. There is absolutely no reason it is not already available for the USA. Except it was never working and just a cgi video. That was the one and only reason I upgraded from the series 3.

    Apple needs certification from the officials to release it to the public.
    That certification may have been delayed and that’s why we’re waiting.
    Don’t worry, it will come.

    Apple said before the end of the year. There is 5 or so weeks to go.

    Supposed to be out in WatchOS 5.1.2 which should be available some time in December. Apple has mentioned this in a training document.

    Features have been known to not be in the beta but in the shipping version. I bet it will be in the official update.

    Yep, the rumor is that it will be released with 5.1.2 despite not being active in the beta.

    If they don't have gov't approvals yet finalized that could explain it missing from the current 5.1.2 beta, in case they miss the approval date and have to push out a 5.1.3 update right after the current beta with just the ECG feature enabled.

    Apple releases things on their own time, when they feel it’s ready to be released. Patience eludes some people though.

    Ok, to be fair, I read about somebody who bought a S4 because they know that they have a-fib, but, even while wearing a monitor, was never able to capture an episode. The S4 was bought in lieu of another, similar device, hoping that the ECG feature would come. So - no fault to Apple; the promise was "by the end of the year", and they delivered - I get why some people were anxious for the feature to come. (And why non-US residents remain impatient.)
