Maybe you skipped the part about the Apple Watch in yesterday's big presentation. Apple's wearable computer hasn't captured the public's imagination the way the iPhone and iPad have. But this new feature is simply amazing, and it may be the most impressive thing from yesterday's presentation.
It's an Apple Watch app called Airstrip, and it connects doctors to expecting mothers (and other patients, as well as other physicians and nurses). Equipped with Airstrip's Sense4Baby monitor, a pregnant woman can send her heart rate, as well as the baby's, to a doctor. The mother's heart rate is checked by the Apple Watch, while Sense4Baby records the fetal heartbeat.
Though the target market for Sense4Baby is just doctors and moms-to-be, this was the most mind-blowing demonstration of Apple's technology yesterday. With Sense4Baby, a doctor can remotely monitor prenatal health, and also be an early warning system for at-risk pregnancies.
Apple had the Airstrip app demo to show an example of the Apple Watch's new WatchOS 2 operating system. Check out the video demonstration of Airstrip for Apple Watch below, and tell us what you think in the comments.
