Apple’s Smart wearables are pro-life. We can see how well they work as they already saved the life of a number of people and the good news is that it will keep getting better. Apple is working on an upgrade for its Apple Watch series, and we have got all the details you need to know.
Apple Smartwatch’s new features
Apple wants to introduce a new feature that will help save people from a stroke. And the great thing about this feature is that it is not just a simple rumor. This is really happening as Apple confirmed the new feature in an announcement on February 25.
This amazing new feature is possible due to the Apple’s collaboration with Johnson & Johnson (J&J). J&J have their own app called Heartline Study, which is going to be introduced in the Apple Watch to help can “improve health outcomes, including reducing the risk of stroke.” Apple Smart wearables are definitely heading in the right direction as being life pro devices.
Apple Watch Series 6 is reducing the risk of stroke feature
Detecting atrial fibrillation (AFib) on time is very difficult, as it is usually discovered when it hits the people with a cardiovascular accident. So it will be interesting to see how the Apple smart wearables and the Heartline Study app will work together.
The goal of the Heartline Study app is to be able to detect this AFib earlier with the help of Apple’s Watch ECG app and irregular rhythm notification feature, explains Dr. C. Michael Gibson, co-chair of the Heartline Executive Committee and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
You can be part of the study if you are older than 65 and live in the United States. Another thing that you need in order to enroll in Original Medicare, and you are on the case. You won’t need to commute for this study; all you need to do is register and use your own device from home. However, you will need an iPhone 6s or a later version of the iOS to participate as well as allowing the companies to see your Medicare data on the new Apple Watch Series 6.
