Outfitted with a heart rate sensor, the Apple Watch devices may soon be featured to detect abnormal heart beats. When measured results indicate problems, the gadget will recommend users participating in a specialist medical checkup.
Abnormal heart rhythm, referred to in medical terms as arrhythmia, may also indicate serious conditions such as atrial fibrillation. In such situations, arrhythmias can lead to blood clots and infarction.
Without any other symptoms being detectable in advance, Apple Watch could provide the only concrete clue, stopping activities and resting immediately by helping to avoid end-to-end situations.
Even if it is not considered a medical accessory, Apple Watch has already saved a teen’s life and is used in controlled clinical trials to assess its potential for diagnosing medical problems.
