How about ”Never”? Will ”Never” work for you?

Of course if you add the BP cuff the glucose needle the EKG patches the urine flow meter and a few other attachments, then maybe. Might be a bit cumbersome to go for a walk round the block will all that stuff attached to you and plugged into the watch, though.

Don't forget the $750,000 (or more) price tag to add all of those monitors and testing/diagnostics components.

Apple Watch is not good at replacing medical grade devices. It only gives approx. data not accurate enough. Because if it does that, it cannot be a proper smart watch and retain it's formfactor.

They are good to catching issues. Not good enough to be medical grade, replacing diagnostic and monitoring equipment is a clinic, hospital, or other care facility.

It is good for use like an idiot light on a dash of your car to give you a “heads up” something may be amiss.

Buy an apple watch, and if the watch does not tell you your bank account is now overdrawn, then I guess you good to run with it.

Agreed, it is only meant as a "screening tool" to indicate possible health issues and not a replacement for hospital diagnostics/instruments.
