According to the well-known Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo of the TF International Securities, which is very reliable, Apple will be launching a new Apple Watch model this year with a ceramic cover while the ECG app comes to several countries.
"Multi-country ECG supports", the analyst wrote in a note to clients obtained by MacRumors. "New ceramic lining design added," reads the card note. The report did not provide any additional details, so it is unclear whether the ceramic case would be limited to the upcoming series 5 models or when the ECG app might come to new countries.
The ceramic casing was introduced with Apple Watch Series 2 back in 2016. The company continued to offer it when Series 3 looks like in 2017.
It was dragged when Series 4 fell in the fall. Apple, however, did not explain just as it left us in the dark about why it had clearly phased out gold-plated Edition watches.
Apart from being a hell of much cheaper than solid gold, ceramics are four times stronger than stainless steel. It's because of ceramics that the previous Apple Watch Series 3 Edition was called the most scratch-resistant Apple Watch.

Perhaps Apple has found a cheaper way to produce ceramic casings. The Series 3 Edition costs $ 1,299 despite the fact that the cabinet is the only difference between it and the regular models.
As for the ECG app, it requires a Series 4 electric heart rate sensor. The FDA-regulated app is currently supported in the US, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
