An Apple critic turns Apple fan

This isn’t about iPad, but I like stories of technology helping people get into better shape or, as in this case, save their life.

Jason Perlow is a tech writer. Not an Apple fan. Curious about new technology. Bought a refurbished Apple Watch series 2. It didn’t do much for him for months. Then he was invited to Apples heart study program. He joined. Days later the Apple Watch told him he had an irregular heart rhythm that he ought to have a doctor look at. Turned out that he was in high risk getting a stroke due to atrial fibrillation. Without the watch, who knows if and when it had been discovered. Happy ending.

Amazing! The heart monitor for the watch seems to have done a lot of good, even in the Apple Watch's short life span (thus far).
