Potentially Life Saving Features Apple Offers

Posted by Sophia Williams on

If you own an iPhone or any kind of smartphone then you know having certain apps can make things much easier, especially in case an emergency arises. Another thing that makes things easier, the apple watch. Again, I'm referring to emergencies and not just everyday life hacks. It is well known that the apple watch can monitor your heart rate and alert medical respondents if there was an accident. 

Heart Rates: 

Your apple watch can track your heart rate and notify you if there is an unusual change that it reads. There are many stories about how the apple watch has saved many peoples lives by catching heart abnormalities, sensing an accident by heart rate changes, and much more.

If you are unsure how to set this up, then keep on reading. First you're going to head over to your heart rate app, then you will see a tab named "My Watch", you need to click on that. Afterwards it will take you to a new page, look for "heart" and tap it. Then you will see tabs for high and low heart rates, when you click each one you will need to input a bpm.


Another interesting and useful feature the apple watch has is for tracking your respiratory rate. If you don't know what a respiratory rate is, it is the amount of times you breathe within a minute. This obviously is affected by things like exercising and sleeping. The watch will track what is normal for you and you can then monitor if it notices changes and/or abnormalities. 

If this is something you are interested in setting up but unsure how, here are the steps to guide you. You will go to the health app on your iPhone, then you are going to click on "Set Up Sleep" and tap "Get Started". It will then take you through the information and guides. You have the option to pair it with your apple watch when first setting it up. Once you have finished you can view your respiratory rates by clicking on your health app, searching for "respiratory", and then clicking "respiratory rate".
