rear sensor Apple Watch 6

The Cupertino company has just announced a joint study with several researchers from the University of Washington in which it is intended to maximize the possibilities of the Apple Watch. As you can read in the title of this article, what is intended is to measure in a more or less precise way Apple Watch's ability to detect respiratory diseases.

Of course, it seems clear that the Apple Watch is still looking for important options to take care of people's health and this type of study can clarify many doubts. In this case algorithms are key to detecting these diseases early And it is not the first time that we read or hear studies on this possibility with the Apple watch.

Sports and health are not as far as we think and many times we think that some of the applications or records made by the Apple device are useless, but nothing could be further from the truth. The sensors that the Apple Watch has and the improvements that are added each new version can be key to detect any respiratory disease and therefore they launch this new study together with the University of Washington.

From AppleInsider They even show some of the reflections of this study that lasts for about half a year or more in which interesting novelties could be discovered in the detection of COVID-19, for example. The measurement of blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and other data collected on the Apple Watch will be key to this new study of which really relevant and positive information is expected for the fight against this new coronavirus or other diseases related to the respiratory tract.
