APPLE, STANFORD MEDICINE Launch Apple Watch- The ultimate Digital device for a healthy lifestyle

Read More Apple launched the Apple Heart Study app last Thursday to monitor users' heart rhythms using the Apple Watch heart rate sensor and alert users who are experiencing Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). The company has partnered with Stanford Medicine.

Participants who receive a notification of a heart irregularity get a free virtual consultation with a physician from telehealth company American Well. As part of the program, participants receive an electrocardiogram (ECG) patch that allows for further, more accurate heart monitoring.
Stanford Medicine hopes the study will demonstrate how health tracking wearables could usher in more proactive user health monitoring. 
For Apple, the study could help to solidify its narrative that the Apple Watch is "the ultimate device for a healthy lifestyle.
