Could An Apple Watch Save Your Life?
CNBC's Chrissy Farr tried out the new ECG app and irregular heart rate notification for Apple Watch ahead of its release on Thursday. Here's how to use it. The Apple Watch has always had an optical sensor to monitor heart rate called a PPG, which is short for photoplethysmogram. Heart rate gives you a measurement of beats per minute.
