Apple Watch saves man’s life after warning him of heart problems

Telegraph – A father received life saving surgery after his Apple Watch warned him he had a low heart rate.

Paul Hutton, 48, was notified by his smartwatch that his heart rate was frequently dropping below 40bpm – a normal resting heart rate is between 60 and 100bpm.

After visiting his GP and being diagnosed with an low heart rate, the father-of-three cut out caffeine in a bid to resolve the issue.

But his Apple watch, which was upgraded in September 2017 to alert users when they have a low heart rate, continued to send him warnings.
