In a study called “Warrior Watch,” Mount Sinai Medical Center researchers found that smartwatches including the Apple watch are able to detect changes in the user’s heartbeat. This can be an indicator that the coronavirus is present up to seven days before any visible symptoms are developed.

Based upon how well the immune system is working, the study analyzes the variation in time between each heartbeat. Better known as “heart rate variability” (HRV). Participants in this study wore Apple watches equipped to measure changes in their HRV.

Dr. Robert Hirten, assistant professor at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York City said:

We already knew that heart rate variability markers change as inflammation develops in the body, and Covid is an incredibly inflammatory event, It allows us to predict that people are infected before they know it.
