Now another com­pany is mak­ing a sim­i­lar pledge with the launch of the AliveCor Kar­dia Band. Its an Ap­ple Watch strap with an em­bed­ded EKG sen­sor, so it can ac­tively mon­i­tor your heart rate and de­tect the tell­tale signs of atrial fib­ril­la­tion and other heart ab­nor­mal­i­ties. It can then send this data di­rectly to your doc­tor, help­ing them with di­ag­noses and treat­ment plans. It may one day save your life.

The Kar­dia’s EKG sen­sor is in­te­grated into the AliveCor Ap­ple Watch band, mean­ing you’ll have a po­ten­tially life-sav­ing de­vice wher­ever you go.
