Apple is working to beef up its Apple Watch with more health features.
Apple Inc.is developing an advanced heart-monitoring feature for future versions of its smartwatch, part of a broader push by the company to turn what was once a luxury fashion accessory into a serious medical device, according to people familiar with the plan.
Apple's current Watch has a more basic heart rate monitor, but the company is increasingly trying to use advanced sensors to predict future afflictions, rather than simply collect historical data about the body.
Not only would it serve as an excellent tool for doctors to remotely remain apprised of the wellbeing of patient with cardiovascular conditions, but it could also provide an early diagnosis for unknown conditions without going to a doctor or doing a medical checkup. EKGs (electrocardiograms) detect irregularities in the electrical impulses that trigger the contractions in the four chambers of the heart.
Behind the walls of Cupertino, a version of the Apple Watch being tested requires users to squeeze the frame with two fingers to send a weak electrical current to the heart to pick up signals, the report said. Hence, the tests ability to identify potential abnormalities is limited. It's called the Apple Heart Study app. With a few more years, it's quite likely that the Apple Watch will have a suite of third-party medical companions, transforming its utility with little effort on Apple's end.
Apple is very eager to bring more functionality to its Apple Watch, so it's not surprising why it's been taking a deep interest in heart health in the recent months. But given just how useful it could be - better tracking could help people prevent strokes and heart failure ahead of time - that seems unlikely.
