I upgraded my Apple Watch last night, set it up in the Health App. I have a pacemaker and didn’t expect the EKG to be accurate. The EKG was on the mark. I could see when my pacemaker was firing. Pretty impressive for the accuracy and ability to keep the EKG records stored in my iPhone. I just hope the accuracy continues with the App.

Ugh which means we have to update to iOS 12.1.1 if we want the update for the watch. No it’s ok I’m waiting for a iOS 12.1 jailbreak.
