Newborn baby's heartbeat shared with relatives and friends thanks to Apple Watch

Newborn baby's heartbeat shared with relatives and friends thanks to Apple Watch
A video posted on YouTube by the parents of a newly born baby boy, shows the new father using his Apple Watch Sport to record his son's heartbeat so that he can then send it to relatives and friends throughout the planet. The Apple Watch captures the heartbeat with the sensors on the back of the device.

When the father placed his Apple Watch Sport on his son's tiny wrist and pressed down on the screen with two fingers, an animation of the baby's heart beat was created. Using the Digital Touch feature that allows two Apple Watches to communicate without a phone call or text, the father then sent out the heartbeat to friends and relatives who own the Apple Watch.

The whole process is pretty quick and smooth. You can watch the baby's heartbeat get captured on the Apple Watch Sport by clicking on the video below. And if you get a bit emotional while viewing it, don't worry. That's our little secret.

Apple and their transparent marketing... Last week giving watches to the rich in Milano, now this baby story... Gotta sell those watches. I'm expecting a lot of music videos with the watch, just to make it "the next cool thing". iSheep will love it.

Phonearena is paid by Apple, this is how isheep are born, the antichrist baby, rash and radiation, child abuse.... You guys are sick - all of you! This is a story about how some Apple fans found a use for a feature on a piece of modern tech that happens to be Apple. Why the hate? Like someone said above "even if this was the same story about android ware, you'd still bash on Apple!!! Sick.

I sincerely doubt it spent more than a couple of minutes on the wrist, and I also doubt the baby was sweating while it was on his wrist.

For the record, I don't like the concept of smartwatches as a whole, so this isn't Apple hate exactly.

Puke! Man the Apple cult is pretty tight nit with their PR spiel. You have Luis D, Ray S, and the original iphonearena team positing all these Apple articles with great sounding titles. Then they strategically place Samsung articles with horrible sounding titles. Then we have some Apple defense force people in every comment section of the entire internet. Then you have puketastic YouTube videos like this. It's disgusting really.

I don't even care about the article, it's just hilarious how butthurt fanboys like this are lol

Why is this video "puketastic"? Because they used an Apple Watch? Let me guess, it would have been totally awesome video had they used anything other than an Apple product? Its AMAZING how butthurt fanboys can take a great moment in 2 parents lives and turn it into a bash fest. Freaking grow up already. I don't care what product they used, its a wonderful time for those parents and they wanted to share something besides the common pictures with friends and relatives. The only reason its horrible to you is because they used an Apple Watch. Your being an insensitive jerk IMO as are many other haters. Grow up and get a life seriously.

It's puketastic because this is so fake and staged that it's not funny. Actually it is funny, because it seems like you actually fell for it. The Apple marketing team is probably laughing their asses off right now saying I wonder how many morons like stealthd and you will get good will from this and buy an Apple watch.

"Our first child was born and we used an Apple Watch Sport to send his heartbeat to our distant family members it was a really awesome experience that we couldn’t have done without the Apple Watch." "...a really awesome experience that we couldn’t have done without the Apple Watch..." "...we couldn’t have done without the Apple Watch..." "...without the Apple Watch..." LOL. Because others Smartwatch can't do this ? F*ck those Apple biased.
