Apple Watch notification alerted user of abnormal heart rate


Some people may still think of smartwatches as fancy devices that gadget enthusiasts sink money into. But occasionally we hear of news that validate their usefulness. In the latest piece, an Apple Watch user was able to discover the existence of a heart condition.

According to 24 News (via 9to5Mac), Zachary Zies realised that he had a heart condition that needed to be diagnosed, all thanks to his Apple Watch. This happened when the device alerted him to a resting heart rate of 210 BPM, which was caused by an atrial flutter that required an atrial ablation to fix. For reference, the average resting heart rate for adults is between 60 to 100 BPM.

The Apple Watch will send out a "High Heart Rate" notification when it detects such an abnormality, which is one of the device's many features. Besides that, the latest Apple Watch Series 6 can also detect a user's blood oxygen level, track your sleep pattern, measure your exercise routines, and more.
