Earlier this year Apple Watch were in the spotlight for a good reason. They say that the function of the fall detector saved a person’s life when he fell in the bathroom and lost consciousness. Here is another interesting story about how multifunctional Apple Watch came to the aid of man. This time, the heart rate monitor did its job.
The story goes that a 48-year-old Paul Hatton, a technology writer from England, received a warning that his pulse rate was too low, prompting him to visit the RP. Usually the most common function is the ability to determine when the heart rate is too high. But two years ago Apple included the ability to scan and detect low heart rates that save a person’s life. At rest, the normal heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. However, Paul’s smartwatch warned him that his pulse drops to 40 beats per minute at rest. At the hospital, the doctor removed caffeine from his diet, but this had no effect as the clock continued to detect a low heart rate.

When this did not work, Hatton was referred to a specialist who diagnosed him with ventricular bigemia. This is an irregular heartbeat that occurs after a regular heartbeat and prevents the effective pumping of blood. He underwent surgery to remove the heart. Simply put, this is a procedure that burns small areas of the heart to destroy tissue in the muscle organ that causes the problem. Hatton has since recovered from an operation for which he was reassured, but woke up completely.
And again Apple Watch proved that the difference between life and death can lie in smart watches. In addition to heart rate last hours Apple Watch Series 4 is also equipped with an ECG monitor that checks abnormal heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation (AFib). This can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure, and other problems. This feature has also been adopted by other smartwatch manufacturers such as Samsung, Huami, etc. Amazfit Verge 2 has an ECG version, and Galaxy Watch Active 2 – to run with this feature.
