A patent describes the method the Apple Watch will use to monitor the pulse

One of the most important new things, if it can be considered something new, and one of the biggest factors that people will buy it for, is that the Apple Watch is able to monitor your heart rate without the need for traditional methods or anything that comes into contact with your heart. It seems that a patent has revealed the way in which the Apple smartwatch will carry out this function .

As we all know, the pulses are not only felt in the chest by placing the hand just above the heart, we can also feel them in the wrist, neck and so on. Basically what the Apple Watch does is detect this “echo” that your wrist receives , we can also see some details such as the time it takes to reach the location of the Apple Watch from your heart.

When we have our hand on our heart, the accelerometer will detect the heartbeat, then the sensor of your heart rate will detect your pulse to get an idea and, so to speak, remember that sound so that every time your body emits it it can identify it as a pulse . Simple, isn’t it?

We already know that Apple as a company always has two things clear with its customers: privacy and security. They seem to be going one step further by influencing health as well, something we have to keep in mind above anything else, so we can say that this is just another reason to buy the apple smartwatch, apart from all the other advantages that the product itself brings. Not least because the demands on the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE have exceeded expectations .
