Heart rate monitor on Apple Watch helps woman survive blocked “widow-maker” artery
It turned out that Diane suffered a full blockage in the widow-maker artery. A stent procedure was done and today she is alive and well. Now she and her husband will be able to celebrate their 48th wedding anniversary this coming August.
Both Diane and her husband Gary own their own Apple Watch
Diane had purchased an Apple Watch for her husband Gary and even though she didn’t want one, he bought it for her anyway and all the gesture did was save her life. Feenstra said, “It’s such an easy thing to see what your heart rate is, had I not done that that morning who knows but I may have had another heart attack that would have been fatal.”
