Apple Watch have already saved the lives of several people with their many health-related functions. This time, the smartwatch managed to save 28-year-old James Green from Brooklyn.
Green suffers from pulmonary embolism, in connection with which he began to regularly monitor his indicators. He used the original Apple Watch, which do not measure the heart rate all the time, so the man had to install the Heart Watch app. It alerts you when your heart rate crosses a certain level.

Once a notification appeared on the clock that the man's heart rate exceeded the norm, although then he was just sitting at the table. Thanks to his past experience, Green immediately realized that this was not a panic attack, but something serious, and called his doctor. The tomography showed blood clots, and the doctors reacted by doing everything to save Green's life. If James hadn't called his doctor, he would have been dead.
This isn't the first time a heart rate monitor Apple Watch has saved someone's life. Previously, similar incidents have occurred with other people around the world.
