According to a new study, Apple’s smartwatch detected an uncommon tumor, which might have potentially been fatal to the user in the United States. Kim Durkee, according to 9To5Mac, received indications from her Apple Watch two nights in a row that her heart was in atrial fibrillation in May. The woman did not think the Apple Watch was any good until recently, but she now swears by it.
As per CBS News, a woman from Maine, a state in New England, had myxoma, a rare, fast-growing tumor that was hindering her heart’s blood supply and would have caused a stroke. However, it was her Apple Watch that focused her to rush to hospice before things got difficult for her.

Kim Durkee told the newspaper that she didn’t believe her watch when it warned her to the abnormal heartbeats, also known as atrial fibrillation. She didn’t go to the hospital until the numbers skyrocketed. “On the third night, the numbers got a little out of hand.” “Then I said, you know what, go to the emergency department, and if they say it’s nothing to worry about, throw the watch away,” Kim told the reporters.
When she arrived at the hospital, physicians informed her that her heart was beating erratically due to a rapidly growing tumor that was constricting her heart’s blood supply. “They said, ‘How did you know you had A-fib?’ I replied, ‘Because my watch told me.’ I feel myself extremely fortunate to be here and speaking with you “Kim stated.
Kim had no additional symptoms save irregular heartbeats. So, if it hadn’t been for the Apple Watch, which she had purchased to track her fitness routine, she might never have discovered her underlying problem.
