Apple Sees Health Business Opportunity, Announces Heart Features for New Watch

Posted by @DanHinmon, Sep 13, 2017

Apple unveiled its new Apple Watch 3 yesterday with an emphasis on health and fitness.

“The heart rate monitor includes new measurements for resting heart rate and recovery heart rate as well as an alert if the heart rate goes too high when the wearer is inactive. It will also monitor heart rhythm — an important feature since atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heart beat, can go unnoticed and is a leading cause of stroke, Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams said.”
