Apple releases watchOS 7.0.2 with fixes for battery drain issue and ECG app availability

Apple released iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14 to supported devices in September, earlier than it usually would have, due to the pandemic and delays in announcing the iPhone line-up for this year. The updates brought significant changes for Apple’s offerings, including a design overhaul to the home screen in iOS that introduced an App Library for all apps, new widgets and much more. watchOS 7 was also a major release, finally bringing sleep tracking, support for third party watch faces, and more.

Just a week after the release, the first bug-fixing update for the OSes came on September 24 and brought fixes to the default apps issue on iOS and iPadOS. Today, Apple is releasing the second bug-fixing update for the Apple Watch OS, bumping up the software to watchOS 7.0.2. The release brings improvements to battery usage and a fix for the ECG app not showing up.

Here’s the complete changelog:

  • Addresses an issue that could cause the battery to drain more quickly
  • Resolves an issue that prevented some users from accessing the ECG app in regions where it is available

While the update itself is fairly minor, the improvements to battery drain and the ability to enable the ECG app for users in regions where the feature is supported will be a welcome addition. However, more fixes and features are on their way in watchOS 7.1, which is currently in beta.
