The combination of AI and smart watches is another win for tech giant Apple as it intends to become a key player in the healthcare industry.

Last year it made multiple health improvements to its Apple Watch, as well as a new patent for the potential use of the iPhone as a health sensor. In addition, it launched its first sponsored clinical trial and bought several ahealth companies.

Other current smart watches detect atrial fibrillation, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

If wearables can better diagnose, manage, and treat disease at earlier stages, these technologies could completely alter the way diseases are currently managed.



If diseases can be accurately detected using artificial intelligence in wearable devices, it provides immeasurable value to consumers and healthcare providers.
