Apple would be joining Stanford and American Well to study Watch's detection of heart problems

As confirmed in verse Golden master from iOS 11, three days ago, today at the special event expected also the announcement of a new Apple watch. In addition to new features, Ma will certainly continue to strive for better health solutions, as this is an area of ​​great interest to the company, as Tim Cook explained in a recent interview.

To reinforce this idea, the CNBC said Apple would be working in partnership with Stanford and the telemedicine company American well to see if Watch can detect cardiac anomalies.

Apple Watch has already been considered one of the best devices for heart monitoring; so it would really be a very positive advance if some problems such as arrhythmia or abnormal heartbeat could easily appear on the clock screen, which would certainly help save many lives.

Bob Wachter, president of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, recalls that one of the very common problems is atrial fibrillation; He says that it is "medically useful" to know a person affected by the disease so that he can seek appropriate treatment.

The study with the new partners, as sources told CNBC, will be launched later this year and there is no doubt that Apple Watch will achieve a satisfactory result. For example, in another study by the University of California, the team responsible for the Cardiogram app was able to use Watch to detect these heart abnormalities with 97% accuracy, which is really incredible.

Since this new study is supposed to be conducted by Apple itself, it may be that new native features may be coming, but nothing has yet been confirmed by either the company or its supposed new partners.

If indeed this were to happen, Apple Watch would surely be considered an indispensable device for those who already have heart problems and those who are likely to develop them.
