Apple watches are a line of smart watches that interact with your iOS devices for excellent fitness tracking other health-oriented things. Apple watches are priced a little bit higher than their competitors due to their design capabilities and technological advancements.

Apple Watch is being considered as an excellent device to take care of ourselves and the smart wearable is expected to be at the center of future health and technological endeavors.

Before knowing about the extension of Apple for health applications, here is a quick list of specs:

  • Available in three variants: Watch, Watch Sport, and Watch Edition
  • 512 MB DRAM memory
  • Onboard Storage of 8GB
  • AMOLED Display
  • Connectivity by Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC

There are multiple variants in Apple Watches each for a specific scenario like the Nike sports edition for athletes but the tracking features and other hardware remains mostly same.

Detecting Health Problems

According to CNET, in a recent study by the University of California, San Francisco, Apple Watch was able to detect health problems with great accuracy. Here are some important things about the research and the results:

  • The University worked with Health eHeart Study for studying about Atrial Fibrillation
  • This is done by using Cardiogram on the Apple Watch
  • Using Apple Watches, Cardiovascular data is gathered from 6,158 people 
  • Apple Watches successfully differentiated between normal heart beat and atrial fibrillation with an accuracy of staggering 97 percent

"Atrial Fibrillation" means irregular beating of heart which can lead to fatal heart stroke. Detecting this behavior in its initial stages is essential for preventing fatal incidents. This study shows that Apple Watches have the potential to identify this problem very effectively.

Thanks to the advanced hardware, the watch can even perform additional health-related diagnosis. Apple is also eyeing to make Apple Watch identify and track diabetes too. This will be a huge breakthrough in the wearables industry. 

The claim does not go without any reason. According to CNBC, Apple CEO Tim Cook is spotted with Apple Watch and some device that looks like a glucose tracker. Even though the details are pretty scarce, that may be a prototype under testing.

Apple Watch has, even more, applications that need to be explored. Apple a few months back even patented a design to identify persons based on their heartbeat. Putting all these pieces together, we can realize that Apple is looking for a revolution is wearables market and hopefully, it makes our lives much better.
