Tech company Apple, known for its innovative products like smartwatches, recently made headlines when it was reported that an Apple Watch saved the life of a 40-year-old man in the United States.
The man, named Josh Furman, has type 1 diabetes and relies on his insulin pump's alerts to warn him about low blood sugar levels.
Earlier this year, Josh faced a critical situation when he lost consciousness at home, resulting in a brain injury.
Thankfully, the fall detection feature on his Apple Watch activated automatically and dialed 911 for emergency assistance, according to Jagran News.
In an interview, Josh mentioned that he could not estimate how long he was unconscious, but upon waking up, he found his Apple Watch ready to call for help.Despite being unable to speak, the GPS on the watch enabled emergency services to locate him accurately.
This incident adds to the growing number of instances where the Apple Watch has played a crucial role in preventing life-threatening situations.
The Apple Watch Series 6, with its Cardio Fitness notifications, has been effective in alerting users to potential health issues, as per the report.
Meanwhile, On World Diabetes Day, Apple shared insights from the Apple Heart and Movement Study (AHMS) and the Apple Women's Health Study (AWHS), highlighting the positive impact of exercise on managing blood sugar levels. The studies also addressed challenges faced by individuals with diabetes, particularly during the menstrual cycle, according to an official Apple report.
