57% of Apple Watch's wearers in the study were seeking medical help when they received a warning about an irregular pulse. That number may surprise consumers because it means that 43% of Apple Watch's wear in the study ignored the warning. Said Dr. Mitesh Patel, an assistant professor of medicine at Perelman School of Medicine, while Apple Watch is good at detecting signs of heart disease warning, the watch needs to be included in something that will motivate users to act on these warnings. In other words, receiving a warning that does not comply with this may be fatal to the user.
When an Apple Watch wearer in the study receives notice of an irregular heart beat, the notification will be asked by the participant to schedule a telemedicine appointment with one of the doctors associated with the study. learning. At that point, the ECG patch will be sent to the recipients of the notification, and used to record the rhythm of their heart for up to a week.

On the other hand, a Boston cardiologist named Dr. Deepak Bhatt says that learning is very important because more people are wearing future wearables.
Apple plans to make a big push on healthcare, and Apple Watch is in line with this decision. While the 4-series model includes an ECG monitor with a heart rate monitor that all Apple Watch models have, the company works in a way for Apple Watch to display a reading of the user's blood glucose without a needle stick. This reading is used by diabetics to determine how much insulin they need to inject in order to bring their blood sugars to a normal level. Currently, diabetics need to draw blood and place a drop of them on a test strip inserted into a glucometer to get a reading. This test is done several times a day. If Apple succeeds in producing a non-invasive blood glucose test for Apple Watch, this will only help Apple stay on top of the smartwatch market.
