The Apple Watch SE 2 is currently Apple’s most affordable model, but it’s not the least accurate!

The Apple Watch SE 2 was key to saving the life of a user who reported a heart abnormality.

In the world of technology, the best is often associated with the most expensive, and there is a lot of truth to that, but in the case of Apple, at least it is a good investment. According to the testimony of one lucky user of the bitten apple, the Apple Watch SE 2, currently Apple’s most affordable model, was the key that saved his life after he reported a heart anomaly.

According to a post by Reddit user identified as V3N0M0US83, his Apple Watch SE 2 alerted him to an abnormally high heart rate, prompting him to seek immediate medical attention. The rapid onset of V3N0M0US83 allowed him to discover a serious heart condition that could have led to fatal consequences if not detected in time.

The second-generation Apple Watch SE doesn’t overshadow the rest of the family

In the post, the user explained that he ignored the first alert, claiming he didn’t feel any discomfort, but received two more heart rate alerts the next day while sitting at the kitchen table.

“The Apple Watch saved my life last weekend. I have the SE 2 and on Thursday my watch started beeping saying my heart rate was over 120 bpm”

The second alert from the Apple Watch prompted the bride, a paramedic by training, to intervene. Listening to her heart with a stethoscope confirmed the device’s concerns: “her heart was racing.” This immediate medical confirmation led the wearer to seek emergency medical attention, where it was discovered that she needed critical treatment to save her life.

The specialists who treated him at the hospital diagnosed him as suffering from atrial flutter, an abnormal heart rhythm that causes the heart to beat very fast.

Atrial flutter is less common than atrial fibrillation, but both can cause symptoms such as fainting, fatigue, palpitations, shortness of breath or dizziness. If left untreated, they can increase the risk of stroke.

Treatment for this condition consisted of receiving low-energy shocks designed to restore a normal heart rhythm. A subsequent ECG came back positive and he was able to go home.

Of course, after this experience, the man’s advice aligns with the advice previously given by people in similar situations.

“If someone is on the fence about buying a watch, I highly recommend doing this.”

Apple introduced the second-generation Apple Watch SE alongside the Apple Watch Series 6 on September 15, 2020, and it began shipping on September 18.

V3N0M0US83’s experience is a timely reminder that even the most affordable wearables can offer essential health features that can make a difference at a critical moment. Apple Watch SE proves that lifesaving technology doesn’t have to be a luxury.
