    Anyone found a workaround in having the ECG app installed and run on the AWs bought outside the US? Changing the region settings on the AW app does not work.

    Mm....no workaround. ECG is locked to US-purchased Watch.

    Even just the Heart Heath app which is on older models won't be activated on my Series 2 because it wasn't purchased in the US (I was told by their chat support). Even though I explained that I am in the US (I wasn't... I'm in Canada... close enough) and using a US Apple ID...

    Mm...I think Canada is next. Read something about Apple talking with Canadian health authorities about having the ECG approved there.
