The Apple Watch has saved so many lives and with the next iteration of the connected timepiece just weeks away from getting unveiled, it looks like the world’s most popular watch has just added another notch to the bedpost. The latest incident took place in Tucson, Arizona back on June 9th when 70-year-old Yolie De Leon was about to go for a walk.
Apple CEO Tim Cook responds quickly to a letter from De Leon
Needless to say, De Leon is now a huge Apple fan. “”They gave me my life,” she says. “What can be better than that?”
The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be unveiled alongside the iPhone 13 series as soon as the second week in September.
The features used by Apple Watch users to save their lives include the heart rate sensor. As we said, any number between 60 to 100 is not a cause for alarm. The 174 bpm reading generated by De Leon warrants an immediate trip to the ER. The ECG looks for abnormal heart rhythms like the one that showed upon Yolie’s test indicating that she was in Afib. And the fall detection system will alert emergency services and emergency contacts if the Apple Watch user falls and can’t get up.
