Based on the ongoing internal testing, it seems Apple is very determined to make its Apple Watch a health-centric smartwatch.
Apple is working on expanding the heart monitoring capabilities of future Apple Watches, according to sources cited by Bloomberg. Currently, the wearable sports a heart rate monitor that uses photodiode sensors and LEDs to track the flow of blood through the skin.
Not only would it serve as an excellent tool for doctors to remotely remain apprised of the wellbeing of patient with cardiovascular conditions, but it could also provide an early diagnosis for unknown conditions without going to a doctor or doing a medical checkup. It would require the wearer to squeeze the outer edge of the Apple Watch with his opposite hand, at which point the device would send a minute electrical current through his hand and across his chest to measure the electrical signals in his heart. Hence, the tests ability to identify potential abnormalities is limited.

The current Apple Watch already has a heart-rate monitor, but it's not as accurate as clinical-grade monitors used by medical professionals. EKG readings would assist Apple and medical institutions in collaborating on existing health-related research projects, which have notably but not exclusively focused on heart-related issues.
Apple Insider pointed out that the new report comes a few weeks after AlivCor's Kardia Band EKG meter received certification from the FDA to be an Apple Watch accessory. In September, the company announced it partnered with Stanford University for a program called the Apple Heart study. Such conditions can increase the risk of strokes and heart failure and develop in about one-quarter of people over 40, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
