What took AliveCor so long? ECG started with Series 4, they mention Series 5, and now Apple sells Series 6.In fact, I remember AliveCor specifically mentioning how the Series 4 ECG is not as good as its device when the Series 4 first came out.And how AliveCor was going to be pushing forward with better hardware like the one that you would touch to your ankle to get six points.
I wonder if something like this could be used for alerting someone to sleep apnea. Or even somehow communicating with a CPAP.

I could not sleep on my back the way I was told I had to and spent the whole night pretty much awake. Results inconclusive.
