This is hardly the first time we’re all hearing about an Apple Watch alerting their owner to a serious and life-threatening condition, but it’s still impressive every single time it happens.
Apple Watches really save lives, and Alabaman Anne Row is the most recent person that can count on her smartwatch for still being here.
Anne got her Apple Watch as a Christmas present from her husband. Before her heart-stopping recent incident, Anne had been diagnosed with Asthma several years ago.
So when she felt short of breath and increasingly more tired, she figured it had to be her Asthma getting worse.
It wasn’t Anne’s Asthma that was paining her though, it was something far worse. Her Apple Watch kept alerting her to something she thought was downright strange.
Speaking to Fox10, Anne said, “It kept saying that I was in AFib and at first I didn’t really believe it but then I decided I would go to my doctor.”
Anne did go to her doctor, and she got the shock of her life. After performing an EKG on her, this is what they found.
She actually was in AFib, which is an irregular beating of the heart that often leads to heart failure, blood clots, stroke, and death.
“I was a stroke waiting to happen and I had no clue,” Anne mentioned.
Anne had to undergo open-heart surgery and got her mitral valve replaced. Now, she has a completely normal rhythm to her heart. And it’s thanks to her Apple Watch that she is in great health!
