The Apple Watch is this year’s ultimate geek accessory but now it’s being turned into a medical super watch.
Thanks to a new app called AirStrip, it will help doctors get real-time statistics from their patients.
And pregnant mothers can use the app, combined with the Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor, to monitor the fetal heart rate of their unborn children.
It uses a sub-app called Sense4Baby that will pair with sensors that the mother places on her belly.
According to AirStrip co-founder Dr. Cameron Powell, the app can distinguish between the mother’s heart rate and the child’s.
The feature was revealed to a crowd of 7,000 Apple fans at the company’s iPhone event in California.
It will launch with the next version of the Apple Watch operating system on September 18.
