Apple has released watchOS 7.3, alongside iOS 14.4. While the iOS release mainly consists of bug fixes and security updates with a few tiny tweaks to existing features (like better QR code reading), watchOS actually brings some notable features, especially if you live in one of the four countries for which ECG is now available.

For Japan, Mayotte, Philippines, and Thailand, the addition of ECG support (and the related irregular heart rhythm warning) is a big deal. For everyone else, you get a new Unity watch face as part of Apple’s Black History Month celebrations and the time Time to Walk feature for Fitness+ subscribers.

The full release notes are as follows:

  • Unity watch face inspired by the colors of the Pan-African Flag, the shapes change throughout the day as you move creating a face that’s unique to you

  • Time to Walk for Apple Fitness+ subscribers ”an audio experience in the Workout app where guests share inspiring stories as you walk

  • ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 or later in Japan, Mayotte, Philippines, and Thailand

  • Irregular heart rhythm notifications in Japan, Mayotte, Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand

  • Fix for an issue where Control Center and Notification Center may be unresponsive when Zoom is enabled

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
