Diane Fenstra, a woman from Norton Shores, Michigan, found signs of a very high heart rate in her Apple Watch. However, at that time the woman was not doing any physical exercise or hard work. Seeing the rising heart rate, she immediately called her husband and he was saved from a possible cardiac arrest. Her Apple Watch recorded a reading of 169 beats/minute on the day of the incident, causing Diane to call her husband of 48 years. Her husband instructed to call the doctor immediately.
Luckily he was taken to the hospital. There, an ECG revealed that he had a heart attack, which is a fatal condition, due to a blocked artery. Diane then went through a successful stent procedure and was back home on her feet. She is grateful for the gift of Apple Watch given by her husband. Actually Diane first bought an Apple Watch gift for her husband. Then her husband gave her an Apple Watch as a gift.
Smart wearable devices, including the lineup of Apple Watches, are increasingly being used as health and fitness tools. These devices include a wide range of functionality. In addition to monitoring the heart rate, many other sensors provide important measurements. This allows the user’s health to be measured effectively. Apple Watch has another feature called Fall Protection feature which has proved to be a life saver recently. Apple will continue to develop features in its smartwatches that will make them stand out and protect users’ lives.
