Man claims his life was saved by Apple Watch | SWNS TV

Meet the man whose smart watch saved his life after it alerted him to a deadly heart condition – that he’d been unaware of since birth.

Jorge Cox, 22, underwent five hours of open heart surgery in May 2019, at the private Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, Manchester, after alerting medics to worrying heart rate readings from his fancy Apple watch.

The preforming arts student first realised something was wrong when the device recorded heart rate readings of over 130bpm whilst he was resting during September 2018.

Assuming the readings were to do with his caffeine intake during his stressful university course, he forgot all about it.
