Apple Watch Saves Paul's life

Apple has been putting a huge spotlight on health related topics in recent months. It is focusing on products related to fitness and wellbeing.

Presently, the Apple Watch is getting to be known as a lifesaver too, with a story rising over the weekend around a teenage football player's abnormal after-practice heart rate and his Apple Watch's finding that led him to focus something was genuinely off-base.

Paul Houle Jr., a 17-year-old Tabor Academy senior in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, found after practice one day that he had severe pain in his chest and back when taking deep breaths, alongside a fast heart rate.

Even after taking a nap after play time, his heart rate was still at 145. This convinced him to visit hospital for a checkup where he learned he had heart, liver and kidney failure, which could have been fatal if not reported on time.

Paul Houle directly lauded the efforts of Apple watch by saying; “If my Apple Watch hadn’t shown me it was 145, I would have done nothing about it.”

Albeit at first a skeptic of the Apple Watch, Houle's dad and has recently purchased Apple Watches for both himself and his wife, appreciative for the lifesaving intercession of Apple's product in his son's life.

Since Houle's story surfaced before the end of last week, word reached to Apple CEO Tim Cook, who contacted Houle through a direct call; a couple of days after his diagnosis and recovery.

Houle told that he got a call from a California number and there he was! The CEO of Apple talking to the boy himself.

Tim Cook also offered Paul Houle a brand-new iPhone and a summer internship at the company's corporate headquarters in Cupertino next year.
