4 Gaston D’Aquino
An Apple Watch alert can save your life, but only if you heed its warning. That’s a lesson that Hong Kong resident Gaston D’Aquino, 76, wants to raise awareness about.
D’Aquino was at mass on Easter Sunday 2018 when his Apple Watch alerted him to a spike in his heart rate. Having read stories about the device’s lifesaving capabilities, he skipped Eastern lunch with his family and went straight to the doctor.
After a series of extensive tests, doctors found that, out of three coronary arteries, two of his were completely blocked and the other was 90 percent blocked. D’Aquino underwent an angioplasty and said he was feeling much better as of May 2018.
