Apple details new heart-tracking features for Watch

Apple is reportedly collaborating with American Well and Stanford to test the heart rate sensors on the new Apple Watch to detect cardiac abnormalities, according to CNBC.

"We started working on the Apple Watch several years ago", [Cook] said, and one goal was "performing some measurements of your health that people were not measuring, at least continually". The LTE model of the Apple Watch is notable by the red accent on the Digital Crown.

Apple previously teamed up with a startup called Cardiogram to track irregular heart rhythm in conjunction with the University of California San Francisco. Apple has not yet announced the Australian or United Kingdom prices for the device. But how often do I have my watch on but also not have my phone? "Like your heart. Very few people wore heart monitors", Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview with Fortune on Monday.

"We're adding smart activity coaching, a completely redesigned workout app, new features for swimmers".

Apple Watches running watchOS 4 will make use of GymKit as well, which lets the device talk to exercise equipment. To this end, Apple is partnering with clinicians at Stanford for a study to determine whether the Watch can accurately detect abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmias, in wearers.

The watches are priced from US$329 in the US.

This technology needs to be built into gym machines, which means manufacturers like Life Fitness will need to update existing machines and create new ones. The new heart rate app will show you all of the heart biometric data you could want, including resting heart rate, which is a great way to keep tabs on your overall fitness level.
