How Apple's Watch Can Help Your Health

For nearly ten years, Apple has been the premier technology pioneer. Think of the iPod and iPad. Think of the iPhone and iTunes. You can’t go anywhere anymore without seeing someone with an Apple gadget in their hands. Previously these products have been most popular amongst the younger generations, but that may soon be changing.

Apples newest product is the Apple Watch and with it, Apple is hoping to change the how we wear and use our watches. The Apple Watch wearers will be able to store and access important personal information on their wrists and this includes health information. Apple has fixed sensors to the inside of the watch where it would lay against the wearer’s skin. These sensors are there to track his or her heartbeat, physical activity and calories burned.

This comes in handy to doctors like us, because the user will have the capability to share this information, almost directly and instantly, with your physician.  This could in turn revolutionize the healthcare industry. By being able to share your health and fitness updates with your doctor, you will be able to have a more up-to-date understanding of where your health lies. For a physician to have the ability to remotely have access to a patients’ health could reduce health care spending.

Apple Watch also gives the user the ability to select what type of information is being shared at his or her own discretion. This is all too important in the age of privacy and over-sharing. Being able to track and share your daily health by simply wearing a watch and having control of how and what you decide to track, helps you to become more health conscious.
