So for those of you who don’t already know, I was gifted an Apple Watch for Christmas that is better capable of measuring my heart rhythms and keeping track of my breathing rate than my… what was it? Fitbit? FitBit Versa? However you spell, or write, that. At any rate, when it’s not charging it’s on my wrist, and I love how much better the metrics are at… well, keeping track of my metrics. This is a great baseline to be able to give my care team, especially since I’m still pending referral to cardiology (something that should’ve been done years ago with my concerning symptoms that mimicked bronchial asthma and family history).
I’ll get to taking pictures of it on my wrist in the coming days or weeks. I’ve definitely screenshot the EKGs that it’s taken from me. It says that it only records risk of atrial fibrillation — all of them say this — but I’ve gotten better at reading the results of the EKGs that it’s done on me, that have been done on me by doctors, so I have a better idea of what to look for and what some of the… problems might be. I just love this thing.
