An Apple Watch told a 46-year-old man he had an irregular heartbeat. It was right

From Yahoo:

An Apple Watch told a 46-year-old man he had an irregular heartbeat. It was right.

…he was quickly given an EKG by a technician, who called for a doctor, who said, “Yup, you’re in AFib. This thing may have just saved your life.”

At first he did not believe the watch but eventually decided to go to the ER. An interesting example of wearable heath devices and do it yourself medicine.

The potential for improving the human condition and delivering better care at lower cost is unlimited. On the other hand are you OK with Apple knowing all your personal heath secrets?
