Verily‘, launched in 2015, is a subsidiary of Alphabet (i.e., Google). It focuses on life sciences and healthcare. So, it makes sense that Google is getting them to spearhead this ECG initiative.

This is a concept watch for now, NOT available to the consumer.

But, we all know where it is going. It is no secret that Google will announce a ‘Pixel’ smartwatch, later in 2019, to compete with Apple, Fitbit etc. That is when we will see this ECG feature.

The ‘Verge’ article has it right. Over the next 6 months we will start seeing more and more watches offering ECG. I am excited.
