7 A Florida Teen
Just this month, a Florida teenager told local Tampa Bay media outlets that her Apple wearable had saved her life. While at church on a Sunday, the young womanâ€™s Apple Watch alerted her and her family to a critical medical condition and urged them to seek immediate medical attention.
The teen, Deanna Recktenwald, got an alert warning that her heart rate had reached 190 BPM. Recktenwald was rushed to the emergency room â€” where she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. While Deanna will likely require kidney transplants, her mother (a registered nurse) wrote in a letter to Apple that the Apple Watch had saved her daughterâ€™s life.
