What it is: The Apple Watch saved a man who suffered a ruptured ulcer.
When Apple first released the Apple Watch, many people didn’t know why they would need one. Many people still don’t know why they might need one, just as many people still don’t see a need for a computer, a smartphone, a car, or electricity. The main key behind the Apple Watch is its real-time health monitoring abilities, which is something you can never get from a desktop/laptop computer or even a smartphone. Only a wearable computer like the Apple Watch can passively monitor your health at all times.
If you don’t value your health, then a wearable computer isn’t for you. For everyone else who does value their health and their lives, a wearable computer is fast becoming a necessity, especially for older people.
32-year old William Monzidelis was at work in April when he started feeling dizzy and headed to the bathroom. Shortly after, he started bleeding and got an alert from his Apple Watch warning him that his heart rate was at an alarming level. The device recommended Monzidelis seek medical attention. His mother, Nancy, rushed him to the hospital and that helped save his life by getting immediately medical attention.
Without the Apple Watch, Monzidelis might have just ignored the dizziness and bleeding, assuming it would simply pass, and then he would likely have died. By getting early warnings of potentially fatal health problems, he got to the hospital in time for doctors to save his life.
Stories about the Apple Watch saving people’s lives are becoming routine. If you’re interested in living a healthy life, then you have a need for the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch may not be useful for web browsing or taking notes, but for what it can do, it does well that no other type of device can do. Wearable computers are no longer a luxury but a necessity. Provided, of course, that you actually want to live.
