The Apple Heart Study

I felt like I never went over this, so here it is now. The Apple Heart Study is a new study conducted by Apple and Stanford medicine to help accelerate discovery in heart science. This is achieved by monitoring heart rates of consenting participants wearing Apple Watches. That's a lot of data from a lot of people. Mainly, it can detect irregular heart rates and notify users. Early detection can help a lot. The more people who join, the more data, and thus, the more potential for new discoveries or early detections. You must be 22 years old or older, be a U.S. citizen, have an Apple Watch Series 1 or later (with watchOS 4 or later), and have an iPhone 5s or later (with iOS 11 or later). You can join by downloading the Apple Heart Study app [Direct Link].
