Apple’s latest pitch: This gadget will save your life

It's the first over-the-counter, consumer-grade device to include that feature, which allows the Apple Watch to detect potentially deadly heart issues like atrial fibrillation. Now the Apple Watch is not only something that can make your life better but also a device that can literally save your life. On top of the ECG functionality, the Watch can also send you notifications of potential heart issues, and store a record of your heart readings to show your doctor.
