It still works on all iOS devices and versions to this date. If it doesn't work for you either you did it wrong or your watch is not form an ECG-enabled region (the watch will have the ECG app by default).

If your watch was not from an ECG-enabled region (no ECG app), this won't work as your watch won't show ECG app until Apple enables it.

I’m getting a security error when restore is completed, because of that restore won’t work. Is it a must reset the iPhone? Did this on iPhone 11 Pro Max. BTW if I reset the iPhone will photos number count from the last restored photos or else start from 0.

No

I had a similar problem and then discovered there was a Management Profile blocking it that is part of setting up email and such for my company.

After removing that the restore worked without issue.

I think I may have also removed my PIN code beforehand, but I don't think that was the reason at the end of the day but worth trying that if you still get stuck.

I only remembered the Management Profile was there when trying to turn my PIN code off and it was greyed out.

You can do the backup in iMazing and the edit of the backup, then export it to your iTunes backups folder and restore it using iTunes.

Anyone tried on iPhone 11 Pro Max?

Yes, works, but in my case, I don't have any file to overwrite (but anyway I place the file on the folder anyway) and I need to reset the default configuration on the apple watch (delete all files and configuration, a factory reset) because many of the system apps don't works, after that everything works fine.

I have an iPhone 11 pro max 64gb with iOS 13.3.1 (beta) and an apple watch series 5 with watchOS 6.1.2.

Good luck!

You have supposed to Unpair the watch before starting, that’s probably why you needed to reset it to make it work.

Nop, I was needed to do both, first I unpair the watch, after I backup the iPhone, restore the backup and pair the watch, but many system apps don't work, I try to restart the watch (soft and hard reset) but the issue still there, my solution was to make a factory reset (Erase all content and settings).

I hope this can be helpful to someone.

I can confirm this works for my Apple Watch series 4 (bought in México where it hasn't been activated yet) and an iPhone 11 Pro MAX. I have ECG app working, thanks a lot!

Steps I've followed:

  • Unpair Apple Watch from iPhone
  • Backup iPhone with iMazing
  • Edit iPhone backup with this file
  • Restore backup [Erase target device option checked (probably not needed... idk)] and wait until it automatically reboots the iPhone
  • Pair Apple Watch again and select as new device, don't restore from backup

Whole process took around 2 hours for me (probably a bit more) but it will depend on the information amount you have on your iPhone. Totally worth it and I can't believe Mexican Health authorities haven't approved this yet... but I don't care anymore :)

Works on the first developer beta of both iOS 14 and watchOS 7; was kind of a mess though. The first time the iPhone was stuck in a boot loop. Second time I disabled the SIM PIN, deleted all data before restoring and also deleted two com.apple.private.***.plist in the backup, one talking about age gating and the other about feature availability having been downloaded in the last 24 hours. Idk if it was one of those or a combination of them but it’s now working without problems

I confirm this file work for me. iOS 13.7, watch OS 6.2.8 LTE

Follow these steps:

  1. Unpair apple watch without cancel the subscription with your carrier (in case of LTE version)

  2. Download and backup with iMazing

  3. Edit the backup then Goto HomeDomain > Library > Preferences to choose com.apple.private.health.heart-rhythm.plist, right click then chooseCopy to 'Preferences' and point to downloaded file above

  4. Go back to the backup then restore the backup to your phone (Don't check Erase options, this will affected your e-sim activation)

  5. After restored. Pair and setup apple watch as a new device. That's all.

These steps takes me 30 minutes in total.

I tried most of the suggestions to fix the problem with ECG app but failed every time.
I have iWatch 5, 44, purchased ana activated in Slovenia EU. My country isn't among the ones where ECG is supported and activated by Apple. I have iPhone 11 pro and upgraded to iOS 14.
Before copying the PLIST file to the backup via iMazing app, the EKG section in my ECG would ask for birth date before declining to continue due to the unsupported region. After patching PLIST file, Health app says: "open the ECG app on your Apple watch to take a recording" and subtext says: "Enabled on Mitja's Apple watch" and no birth date required as before patching PLIST file.

IMG_7FBDE95B1842-1

On the Apple watch, there is no ECG application to be found nither on the iWatch App store.
I did every step exactly as suggested, unpair and pair as new again several times... nothing worked

If the health app is telling you it’s enabled then probably it’s just a matter of finding it in the App Store. Try searching from another app by Apple, like Music, Timer, Noise, etc and inside the app page go to developer and tap Apple. It’ll show you all apps available

I have iWatch 5, 44, purchased ana activated in Slovenia EU. My country isn't among the ones where ECG is supported and activated by Apple. I have iPhone 11 pro and upgraded to iOS 14.
Before copying the PLIST file to the backup via iMazing app, the EKG section in my ECG would ask for birth date before declining to continue due to the unsupported region. After patching PLIST file, Health app says: "open the ECG app on your Apple watch to take a recording" and subtext says: "Enabled on Mitja's Apple watch" and no birth date required as before patching PLIST file.

On the Apple watch, there is no ECG application to be found nither on the iWatch App store.
I did every step exactly as suggested, unpair and pair as new again several times... nothing worked
Any suggestions or solutions to find the app on iWatch?

If the health app is telling you it’s enabled then probably it’s just a matter of finding it in the App Store. Try searching from another app by Apple, like Music, Timer, Noise, etc and inside the app page go to developer and tap Apple. It’ll show you all apps available

OzwP, thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't work. ECG app is nowhere to be found.

Mmm... maybe via direct link?

Try sending it to yourself with iMessage and open it in the watch

Same Problem: The app is not in the watch. I tried with the links and when i open the ECG link app on Watch AppStore it can't be installed (the button is not available).

iOS 7 and watchOS7.

I take screenshot of iPhone's AppStore and Watch's App Store

That’s very strange, I’m out of ideas :/
Personally, I’d start from scratch.
When I did it I found two com.apple.private.***.plist in the backup, one talking about age gating and the other about feature availability having been downloaded in the last 24 hours and I deleted them but idk if that did something. Also checked “erase target device” when restoring with imazing

Tried doing it as in procedure (including erasing the phone during transfer backup to phone, even logging in to US iCloud account), can confirm it is not working/no longer working with iOS 14.0.1 (iPhone Xs), watchOS 7 (Apple Watch Series 4). When I added the .plist file, the ECG app is gone, in the Watch app on iOS it does say "See ECG data in Health" but since I haven’t had any ECG data and the watch doesn't have the ECG app after injecting the .plist file, it's useless.

Reverted back the .plist file, the ECG app appears after pairing the watch with the iPhone, and in the Watch app it says "Set up ECG in Health" which it will then check for region again and I would get an error "ECG is not available in your region".

Bought my watch in the US, so ECG should be able to work. Guess I just have to wait till I can go out to one of the countries where ECG is available.

Worked this when I was on iOS 13 & WatchOS 6. It also worked when I upgraded to iOS 14 & WatchOS 7. I reset Apple Watch due to poor battery life & not recording any data (heart rate, ECG, step count etc). After I reset Apple watch WatchOS ECG app says “setup on iPhone” even though I have already setup on iPhone & have ECG records also. I don’t know how to reset ECG to get to setup page on iPhone.

How did you restore the Plist. I don’t have the original plist
Also. Are you on iOS 14.0.1 ?

The original .plist is the one before you overwrite the .plist file above. For me, because I compared the original file, to get it working again I just removed these 2 lines:

<key>HKElectrocardiogramOnboardingCompleted</key>
<integer>3</integer>

And restored it back to my iPhone. It is now working like before I messed up with the .plist file, ECG app showing up in my Apple Watch but I just can’t activate it.

At the time of my hack , ECG was not available in my country, it is now available but i cannot get it back.

The hack worked fine until a unpair on iOS 14.
The App has completely dissapeared , not to be found on the Watch App Store.

Linking it to the Watch app store has it greyed out.

I don’t have the original plist , where you able to edit the plist on iOS 14 ?

You can edit the .plist file with Xcode or with TextEdit, as long as you save it as .plist and not .plist.txt when you overwrite the file using iMazing or any other software.

A unpair of the Watch and Reset Settings on my phone fixed the ECG for me, OS 7 together with iOS 14 corrupted the Health App on the phone , note I'm in a ECG supported country.
