In the first such reported case in India to date, the electrocardiogram (ECG) feature on Apple Watch has saved the life of a 61-year-old Indore resident. R. Rajhans, a retired pharma professional, decided to check his ECG on the Apple Watch.

“Twice or thrice, my father was getting arrhythmia signals or irregular heartbeats. It's a critical indicator," his son said.  Further diagnosis revealed that Rajhans had low ejection fraction and required immediate heart surgery.
