We all have become so used to electronic devices and gadgets around us that it is near impossible to exist without them in current times as they all have their own significance, be it smartphones, laptops, smartwatches, along with many others.
Details About Apple Watch
Apple has had a great year in 2022 and in the past decade in general. In fact, 2022 has been a great year for almost all tech giants as they’ve all rolled out excellent gadgets one after another with Apple iPhone 14 Pro releasing in September 2022 at the ‘Far Out’ event held in California along with the Apple Watch as well.
Speaking of Apple Watch, everyone who is dealing with health issues needs to own it, including people who are in generally good health because this smartwatch will help you in keeping your health and fitness in check.
It is amazing how much technology has advanced and we can monitor our well-being with the simple click of a few buttons here and there, which is why smartwatches are so popular as they come with in-built health tools like atrial fibrillation, ECG, heart rate tracker, sleep tracker, blood oxygen level monitoring, among many others.
You can find many online reviews where people can’t stop raving about how Apple Watches have saved their lives on more than one occasion. But unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that it will necessarily keep you up to date all time as it was discovered in a recent study that the devices’ accuracy depends from person to person.
Apple Watch Feature – Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial Fibrillation (A-fib) is an important feature in the Apple Watch. A-fib is when your heart experiences a rapid rhythm that can lead to blood clots in the heart but it has been found out that only a limited number of patients can get an accurate diagnosis of A-fib and they all have similar clinical profiles.
Only last week it was discovered, to the pleasant surprise of many, that Apple Watch could detect pregnancy when a 34-year-old woman shared her experience on Reddit when the watch showed that her average resting heart rate had increased significantly, which put her off and it was the same for 15 days.
Upon testing, it was discovered that she was pregnant, which astonished her so much that she couldn’t help sharing it online and make other people know about this unique feature of the Apple Watch.

Having a fake positive automated A-fib detection was higher for patients with ventricular contractions or premature atrial but the watch did identify 78% of its patients that had A-fib and 81% that did not.
Apple has decided to sort this issue out so we can expect some major changes in the A-fib feature in the coming days so that Apple Watch users can get an accurate diagnosis of the condition given how important it is.
