    Guys, question because I’m still confused. My brother-in-law went to France and bought his apple watch series 5 there. He also activated it there. He is now offering to sell to me that same watch once he lands in Manila. Will ECG be useable here in the Philippines once I pair it with my iPhone?

    TIA

    mm...no because once he unpairs his ecg activated watch and pair it with your iphone here, the pairing process will start from scratch and since apple will be able to detect the actual location of the watch, ecg will not be activated even if you are in an ecg country.

    Mm...edit:

    mm...no because once he unpairs his ecg activated watch and pair it with your iphone here, the pairing process will start from scratch and since apple will be able to detect the actual location of the watch, ecg will not be activated SINCE you are in a non-ecg country.

    There is a perceptible difference in recording between Exercise and Workout app and Apple does not know how to resolve this. Consider doing 50 minutes of outdoor walking but only register 19 minutes on Activity, and will even show that there was a lull in the time graph at the moment of your walk, which is strange. And what a bummer :cool:
