Apple Watch, Fitbit can diagnose hypertension and sleep apnea: study

The Apple Watch, when launched, was initially marketed as a device that was sort of an extension of the iPhone, where users could send/receive emails, messages, receive notifications from news apps, play music, and also use it as a fitness device thanks to its built-in heart rate sensor.However in recent years it seems that the Apple Watch has evolved, perhaps unintentionally, where it can now be used for medical/health purposes, such as being able to detect heart diseases. Now according to a new study (via TechCrunch; via 9to5Mac) conducted by Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco, it seems that the Apple Watch can also be used to detect other health problems, such as sleep apnea and hypertension with an accuracy of 82% and 90% respectively.This is thanks to the use of Cardiogramís neural network called DeepHeart in which it used AI to help interpret data from the userís heart rate and step count. This could soon make it easier for users to detect such symptoms in themselves and while it
