Apple Watch continues to help save lives in a variety of ways

While I’d doubt a wristwatch will ever replace a hospital for something like an electrocardiogram: I’d like to think that as far as canaries go an Apple Watch is better than feeding it to the cat.
Coming from a family tree where hearts are among leading cause of death, the health features are about the only aspect of the device I find intriguing. But then in lays the real problem: even if you could convince me to pay that much for a watch the fact remains that I do not want an iPhone to go with it.
