Everybody seems to be expecting the launch of the iWatch, and the ongoing talk has been stimulated by recent medical hires and rumors, most of all. Now, according to Thomas Lee and David R. Baker from the San Francisco Chronicle, cited by the iWatchMag publication, it seems that Apple is interested in developing software and hardware that would allow the iWatch to predict heart attacks.
Tomlinson Holman is a renowned audio engineer that has been developing audio sensors that Apple plans to embed inside the iWatch so that it could â€œlistenâ€ to the blood flow and then alert about â€œturbulenceâ€ levels that indicate that the person wearing the device is about to have a heart attack.
This is probably one of the most far-fetched speculations regarding the iWatch, but itâ€™s not scientifically impossible. Appleâ€™s interest in the health and medicine fields has been demonstrated with the plethora of patents on biometrics and medical sensors. For the past months, Apple has been on a hiring spree, as multiple experts from various medical fields have joined the company.
