Watches have been earthlings’ timeless companion and have evolved arm-in-arm! From mesmerizing sundials to intricate pocket watches, and sleek wristwatches to tech-savvy smartwatches, the time teller has come a long way. Embracing the digital world, smartwatches seem to proclaim much more than time. From heart rhythm to waves, everything can be answered by the tiny EKG (electrocardiogram) wrapped around the wrist! And the health gurus cannot quite wonder if the wearable prodigy is as infallible as it claims or is turning out to be an obsession!
1. Heart Beats at Wrist!
The trailblazing smartwatches with an integrated EKG are your ideal heart health buddy. The ultramodern device marks an end to frequent disruptive hospital visits. The cherry on top is, some of the trends that a one-time EKG may not predict are displayed by an envious gambit! It allows for unprecedented heart rate monitoring. Put an end to your concern over erratic heartbeats, a known cause of strokes. The monitor is wrapped around the wrist and just a feather touch with a fingertip at the watch screen will complete an electrical circuit like a miracle. Just a few snaps and the heart activity will be displayed on the watch screen, three cheers for the smart move!
2. Beyond Conventions
The wrist EKGs have made the clunky conventional EKG seem like relics from the past. No more waiting room woes with heart analysis at your fingertips anywhere and anytime! Longer periods of heart activity monitoring are also possible. It will help the doctor determine problematic trends which were otherwise possible only with indefinite hospital sleep-overs!
3. The Dynamic Duo!
The trump card is not yet raised. Above all, the analyzed data can be synced with a trusted healthcare provider. Yes, a heart-healthy future might be overseen. The dynamic doctor-smartwatch duo will help you dance in a hearty rhythm!
4. Caveats Behind the Catch!
Amidst all the interests, it is crucial to not lose sight of some fallbacks. The wearable EKG does throw hints of impending heart disease, but it is no diagnostic genius. Furthermore, diseases like heart attacks cannot be detected with smartwatches, though some claim to. Avoid jumping to conclusions too quickly since it craves the company of other tests and a symphony of supporting data to reveal a hidden meaning. In view of the fact that proper diagnosis depends on the fusion of knowledge. And not to mention the portability of the device constrains the number of leads to one or two as opposed to the 12 lead hospital-grade EKGs, probing the fidelity of the so-called tiny heart monitors!
5. Getting Over the Obsession
The heart monitors, no doubt, will help keep heart health under check. But beware of the obsession over the tricky numbers, for it can take a toll on your mental health! Rechecking the figures in a loop will not change things happening inside but can trigger anxiety further raising the risk, and entrapping the watcher in an endless cycle!
So dear readers, let us get captivated by the enthralling technologies to keep up our health while taking care not to get ensnared by its tricks. Avoid jumping to conclusions too quickly since these tiny heart monitors need validation to provide a complete picture. Even while they might mention potential problems, they are not fortune tellers. So let us weave the story of a healthier, happier tomorrow dancing joyfully to the beat of progress but with a tich of criticism!
