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.

Eveybody can do that with every single heartbeat recording device, wether its an apple watch or any other smartwatch or any other newer samsung galaxy ... This is only an example of PhoneArena F*** every Android Wear User or Android User in General by showing something that should be magical and special to an Apple device which it absolutly isnt... Any Galaxy S5 could do this 1 year ago... SRY FOR BAD ENGLISH

Let's bombard a new born with some radiation from the Apple Watch, I mean the baby is just minutes old & it needs it's healthy dose of radiation... It's only its brain that's developing some of that radiation will be good for a growing minutes old new born... What can go wrong? I am sure nothing...

Lets not the forget the possibility of skin irritation. The baby is too young and vunerable.

That comes from wearing the band for long periods of time, and it's fairly rare, so not even close to being a problem here.

You mean the non-ionizing radiation that hasn't been shown to harm anyone? It's almost cute how you pretend to care about a baby so you can bash Apple.

Would you be saying the same thing if this was done with any other product besides an Apple one? Prob not.... I swear, anything done with an Apple product, ppl on this site moan, groan and whine. Haters will be haters i guess. Some ppl will never grow up.

I remember when superandroidevo used to talk tech, now he just logs on to bash Apple it seems. Bring back the old SAE.

I would have said it with any product. All devices have some sort of radiation. Also who knows if I am right & who knows if I am wrong. All I know is that the rise in wireless tech happens to correlate with the rise of Autism in the US. All I am saying is that Autism is at an ALL TIME high. When I was a child Autism was almost non existent, & so was wireless tech. It's just something we don't understand. I maybe right or I maybe wrong, but for people to blatantly say they know is crazy to me. I honestly wasn't bashing Apple. If it was an Android Wear watch I would have said the same thing. SMH

I agree.s5 could do it.but u can share live heart beat ONLY on APPLE WATCH.

23. Sauce5 unregistered

This obviously upset you, and 11 others, lol. Typical fanboyism. Maybe if the family had chosen Android Wear, (even if you can socially share your heartbeat conveniently and easily like found on Apple Watch), then this would have been an article about Android Wear...but its not. Oh well. Cute story non the less.

It could have been Casio as well still retarded

43. Sauce5 unregistered

It could have. But its not. This is the story. Apple Watch happens to be the smartwatch used. Only thing "retarded" here are the sheer amounts of ****boys here complaining and crying.

So you are for child abuse just because its an Apple Watch?

47. stealthd unregistered

Seriously? You think this is "child abuse"? LOL! Haters like this should participate in the special Olympics for mental gymnastics.

Honestly I don't, just trying to see where this troll stands on the subject. You can calm down now.

52. stealthd unregistered

Well gee that sure is a convenient way to get out of a stupid comment.

57. Sauce5 unregistered

Troll? Because I am stating what you don't have the mental audacity / mental strength to see what lays as obvious in plain sight - an Apple Watch capturing a babies heart rate and sharing it with family far away in distance which can not be there to experience their families new born child. Troll? ...lmfaaao.

Exactly. This is no news. PA, if you have nothing to tell us, take a break and take your girl friend out for some snags. And stop idling on your own site.

But, finally a way an apple user can do it. That's the real issue. Majority of apple users are not tech savvy at all. Heck, they could have recorded a video when they were getting the ultra sound done, and had video and audio sent of the heartbeat. But that would be way to much of a common sense issue.

bitter much? why don't you make your own similar article and make your favorite galaxy the center of the story.

My Galaxy S5 hearbeat sensor is inacurate. The last time I tried returned 200 beats per minute ! Several minutes earlier, it returned 60 beats per minute.

"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.
