5 Adam Love
The Apple Watch can send a notification to users if it detects a dangerous acute condition. But it may also be able to help users spot previously unknown health issues.
Adam Love, a 24-year-old Australian man, went to the doctor when he noticed that his heart rate while sleeping — recorded by his Watch — was unusually high. When he went to the doctors, he discovered that he literally had a hole in his heart.
Love was diagnosed with Atrial Septal Defect, a rare congenital heart condition. Luckily, Love was able to undergo successful heart surgery and is reportedly on the road to recovery.
