Apple Watch more effective at detecting heart condition than ECG accessory

A continuing study into the medical potential of consumer wearables has confirmed devices like Apple Watch are sensitive enough to detect abnormal heart rhythms with a 97 percent accuracy, a performance that beats out add-on ECG accessory KardiaBand.

I expect Apple to dial up the health services on the Apple Watch over the coming years. That will save quite a few lives. You may remember that it helped me. Today it only alerts you if your heart rate is unusually high for your current level of activity. Which was one of my conditions.

Wenn ich mal fragen darf. Taugen die Android-Uhren auch zum exakten heart rate monitoring oder muss es eine Apple Watch sein, um sehr gute Ergebnisse zu erhalten? Ich bin sehr am heart rate monitoring interessiert, habe aber ein Android-Phone, und Apple Watch laesst sich, soviel ich weiss, nicht mit Android-Phones verbinden.

Das ist eine Frage des Research, nicht der Hardware. Das konzentriert sich aktuell auf die Apple Watch.

Du findest für Android gute Smartwatches. Mir gefällt die Samsung Gear.
