AliveCor Kardia Band
Wear your heart on your sleeve with your Apple Watch
During Apple’s recent March event, company exec Jeff Williams underscored the firm’s commitments to improving the health and wellbeing of its users. 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.
