Following shocking finish, Apple Watch warns several Vikings fans about their heart
It was the kind of ending you would expect to only see from Hollywood. Trailing the New Orleans Saints 24-23 in their NFC Divisional Round playoff game, the Minnesota Vikings had 10 seconds left on the clock and were at their own 39 yard line. Case Keenum dropped back to pass and lofted a pass to Stefon Diggs, who caught the ball at the Saints 34, kept his balance, and ran into the end zone for the game winning touchdown as time expired.
Apple Watch received an alert telling them that their heart rate was dangerously high, running above 120 beats per minute while being inactive over a ten-minute period. A few snapped pictures of the warning and posted it on Twitter.
The same thing might have happened to Pittsburgh Steeler fans had the Apple Watch been around in December 1972. That is when Steeler running back Franco Harris made "The Immaculate Reception." This miracle catch off of a deflection resulted in the game winning touchdown over Oakland as time ran out, sending Pittsburgh to the Super Bowl.
There is no indication that any of the Vikings' fans who received an alert on their Apple Watch ended up at the hospital, or suffered a heart attack. To see what the fuss was all about, click on the video at the top of this story.
