The market for wearable technology is expanding and becoming more niche, which is evident with the Apple Watch Kardia Band that's designed to detect a stroke. Created by company AliveCor, the Apple Watch Kardia Band works in conjunction with an app on the device to detect for problems.
The Apple Watch Kardia Band works by taking ECG readings via the sensor on the strap, which then relays the data to the Apple Watch app. From here, the device will work to detect atrial fibrillation, which in turn can be used to potentially detect a stroke that is on the horizon.
The Apple Watch Kardia Band holds significant promise for a variety of different users. The strap is not yet available with details on cost still unknown.
