Apple Watch has its first medical accessory, KardiaBand. It’s a strap that allows the new Apple Watch edition to perform an electrocardiogram from the smartwatch and classic phone calls. FDA has certified the KardiaBand. It is the government agency for the control of food and drugs and was created by AliveCor, whose CEO is Vic Gudontra, former head of Google+.
Apple Watch and KardiaBand
KardiaBand installs as an Apple Watch replacement strap and integrates a sensor with data readings such as cardiac rhythm and atrial fibrillation control. Texts can be saved on the dedicated app and sent to a doctor for verification. It is a significant innovation. Apple Watch is now an exciting choice to better monitor your health and improves prevention.

The data is scanned by placing the thumb on the plaque on the strap for 30 seconds. Thanks to AI, the app can detect faults and communicate them to the user. Also, the new SmartRythm feature allows you to compare the data from your smartwatch readings with the data from your physical activity. You can see if the abnormal heart condition is due to physical activity or if it is a signal that should not be ignored. Like all medical devices, KardiaBand is not cheap. The price is 199 dollars while the annual premium subscription is $99.
Apple Watch and the Bikers
The Apple Watch is also useful for motorcyclists. In fact, the watch integrates a GPS system that will help you on your journeys. Also, you can use many popular GPS applications such as Google Maps, Waze, Apple Maps and many more. Having GPS directions without having to mount or install anything is convenient when you get up and down the bike often.
It is waterproof and visible
Although the Apple Watch is not designed to be seen through a Pinlock visor on a wrist always trembling at 70 mph, it is visible. The clarity and brightness are comparable to that of an iPhone. The watch compensates for its small size by displaying only the limited information vital to your activity. Then, the Apple Watch is waterproof, and so you can wear it even during a thunderstorm.

Another important feature is the ability to display calls and text messages. So, you can see if you need to stop to answer or if you can continue your journey. One application that users prefer is EatSleepRide (ESR). The app can detect when you drive and records each ride, allowing you to go back and see the exact route on a map. Speed, elevation, and angle of inclination are available for any point of travel, and minimum and maximum data for these three areas. ESR also allows users to publish travel routes or follow routes posted by other users. You can also edit photos, videos, and stories.
The Apple Watch does not consume much power
The Apple Watch does not consume much power while running driving applications or GPS If you have a USB socket on your bike, you’ll be able to keep the battery fully charged. Could you do everything the Apple Watch can do using your smartphone? Yes. But the portability and ease of use of the watch make it hugely advantageous for pilots. I’m sure other smartwatches are just as useful, but I haven’t tried others yet.
AppleWatch Fan 1
“It is a start. I hope that bracelets will arrive tomorrow to tell us how we are with a certain degree of precision and that they will warn us in time if something goes wrong. Technology serves to improve life. It must necessarily go in this direction…”
AppleWatch Fan 2
“I hope, however, that tomorrow they will stop making us believe that complex and expensive professional technology can be put into a watch with the slightest pretension of reliability”.
AppleWatch Fan 3
“The problem is that currently, they warn you when you already feel alone that there is something wrong. It takes many years to refine these technologies.”
AppleWatch Fan 4
“In the future, without a doubt, but in the present, I can only see khaki made ad hoc to extinguish the poor chickens who drink them all!!
AppleWatch Fan 5
“I’m looking forward to all the” doctoral experts “in medical devices that will surely be revealed in this article!”
AppleWatch Fan 6
“I am a doctor is this device is an absurd application. That is, it doesn’t replace a real ECG at all, but it only manages to understand very few things that you could see in an ECG.”
