Gradually Apple is updating their technology faster than any other company. After launching the iPhone 8 and iPhone X a few days ago, today they came up with their new patent apple watch.

This newly discovered Apple patent, which was only published today, describes a method of calculating blood pressure and detect heart abnormalities.It was first discovered by Patently Apple.

Apple is clear: the future of wearable goes through everything related to health that somehow, would become a medical resource that could lower health insurance.

We knew that the Apple Watch was able to measure the pulsations and even to alert the existence of peaks at rest (a symptom of a possible cardiac alteration), but those of things want to go even further in this area, or at least which we deduct from a registered patent.

According to the same, the Watch could take the blood pressure of its carrier, taking a giant step in its strategy in the field of health . As the patent stresses, alterations in blood pressure can be symptoms of cardiovascular problems, the sooner they are detected, the easier it will be to correct them and avoid greater ills.

How Apple Watch Really Works

As the patent stresses, alterations in blood pressure can be symptoms of cardiovascular problems, the sooner they are detected, the easier it will be to correct them and avoid greater ills.

What would the function patented by the Californians consist of? Apple would give the watch a special strap (we assume it would be sold separately as an accessory) that is capable of measuring the pulse at the wrist, and on the other hand, it would calculate the blood pressure by means of the pulse transit time,it is the time that elapses since the heartbeat occurs and it reaches the wrist in the form of a pulse.

For its operation, the user should place the Apple Watch on his chest for the device to record the beats and from there, calculate the blood pressure. Thanks to this, people with blood pressure problems would save themselves the trouble of seeing their arm “strangled” from time to time in the pharmacy or outpatient clinic, and now, all this information would go directly to the health section of the company, where the user keeps a record of all their values and activity.
