    An 'optical heart sensor'- even a pulse oximeter doesn't make that claim. We all know a pulse is rate is not necessarily a heart rate. How can they make such a claim. #suckers

    I would be interested to see your reasoning for why the activity monitoring on your apple watch will not improve your exercise outcomes. Thanks for your good work!

    Eh, so now, down the road, how's it panned out? (Anecdotal evidence alert: It worked out really well for my father in law who did need surgery after he went into the doctor based on the alerts from the watch.)

    What is your opinion on the Apple watch’s calorie/ excerise features? I find completely my movement calorie goal makes me more active however is it an accurate representation of how much calories I’ve burned by being active?

    Smart watches, so unnecessary technologic.

    If it promotes people to go to the doctor for a yearly check that’s a good thing

    Hello! Will you be doing a video about the recent issue on a dermatology journal regarding private equity?

    I love my HR fitbit, the heart rate monitor was one of the selling points to me, if I'm having an anxiety attack it helps me monitor where I'm at and reminds me of what I need to do. Same for the sleep record. The pedometer on it is just for friendly challenges as I don't think it's entirely accurate anyway. I would never want that data to be sent directly to my doctor though. I monitor my health, if I think there is a problem then I make an appointment. These are tools to help us not magic wands to solve our problems.

    While I totally agree you should have an applewatch if you want one not because you need one for health things…I do have one question about the issue of false positives. And that is has it been taken into account that my understanding at least is that the watch will only alert you with multiple positives. (I don't recall wether a specific amount was given or not but my understanding is it has to happen more than once) in order to try and counter act false positives. It still may not be enough….or make it a reason to buy the device but I fell like this is being ignored when being reported health professionals and would really like to see it addressed…

    So basically your problem boils down to "We'll have to do our jobs." Jesus Fucking Christ, this is the biggest fucking stretch to find a problem I've seen.

    Its absolute garbage got it.

    Mine tells me my blood sugar levels, and alerts me when they're too high or low. Granted, the watch doesn't do that by itself, but I certainly count it among the several electronic medical devices I carry with me at all times. I just wish the FDA would clear it to not also require my phone — Apple demo'd that as a feature of the V3 watch (or WatchOS 4) and it's still not ready now that WatchOS 5 is out.

    I have AF and already use a small hardware and app based device to do what is essentially a rhythm strip, BUT I only use it to “help” confirm from my pulse (plus other physical symptoms) that I am in AF as it is so obvious, IMO, once you can see it (no P and irregularly irregular), have been wrong from pulse once. This would be very handy for me. That said I can see so many people completely trusting it or worse, not understanding its limitations and ignoring other signs and symptoms of dangerous heart conditions.

    Can you do a video on the new fall sensor? I imagine again it would not be useful as the majority of population that buys the watch will not need a fall sensor for another 25 years atleast. However interested to see if data shows potential benefits for syncopal events which can occur in younger population though low incidence for tech enthusiasts.

    At $500, No.

    Dr. Aaron. You rocky world 🙂

    It looks like an Apple a day does not keep the doctor away

  18. LateNightHacks

    Apple marketing shiny useless shit just to make money…. what a surprise… what's next? every other manufacturer copying apple's dumb shit? …….oh wait

    So… it's gonna do more harm than good.

    I am a nurse. I am excited to get this watch and hopefully get a more accurate reading of my heart rate than from my fitbit. My mother hadmultiple arrhythmias before she got ablation therapy, so I tend to be on alert for irregularities of my own. That being said; if I were to have a notification come up on my watch my instinct would be "oh, now it is time to manually record my heart rate" instead of "CALL THE DOCTOR". I think if more people took that approach instead of believing whatever the watch tells you it could be more of a tool than a problem, which it inevitably will.

  21. Michael Wade

    Let's be real: Apple is a huge and highly profitable part of the stock market. The head of the AHA probably holds Apple stock, if not specifically, in his index funds. If there were actual proven benefits for this, the organization as a whole would have endorsed the watch. As it is, he's probably just looking forward to the stock bump, or maybe reveling in the exposure.

    Or they flew him out on their dollar.

    There I thought the biggest health benefit of the new Apple Watch was the fall monitoring and automatic emergency services dialling

  23. eryntey

    Apple is touting this tech as “medical grade.” Most of the time when my patients’ heart monitors alarm in the ICU it is due to artifact, not an actual arrhythmia.. and that’s from an actual “medical grade” piece of technology.

    All the Apple Watch seems to be doing is determining regular rhythm vs irregular.. which you can do yourself by putting your finger on your pulse…

  24. Anders Hansen

    Thanks for another great episode. No real documented advantage with screening or surveilence even if risk of arythmia and conducted bypass?

    It's a monitoring devise to get you more targeted adverts buy knowing your personal habits, that the only thing that it is. If you want to use it with out your personal data being sold by a company that charges you 2000 bucks for overprice crap, get a guy who can make you a private health monitoring application, and disconnect the "smart" features that connect your stuff to everything that emits a signal
