A Reddit user credits the discovery of her early pregnancy to the Apple Watch. The change in her average heart rate made her curious to find out what caused it to rise which led to the pleasant discovery even before a clinical test.
Starting from the first generation, Apple Watch offers heart rate measuring technology. As it is an important feature that allows users to monitor how their body, users can take a reading anywhere at any time like during everyday usage, workout, walking, resting, or breathing sessions.
Furthermore, users can also view their heart rate data over a longer period of time in the iPhone Health app for the last hour, day, week, month, or year. This helps them better analyze the changes in their average heart rate and if any medical assistance is required.
A 34-year-old woman discovered her pregnancy within a month of conceiving thanks to her Apple Watch
The watch knew I was pregnant before I knew it! I would have never ever tested without wearing my watch because I haven’t had a period to be late on one!
I am freaking out as I am not ready for another baby but this allows me time to consider my options and think about what I am going to do. I know this might be an offbeat use for the watch but if you’re a woman of child rearing age and your watch shows a HR increase it might be worth it to test!
“THE ULTRASOUND COULDN’T DETECT ANYTHING YET DUE TO HOW EARLY I AM SO SHE IS BRINGING ME BACK FOR A DATING SCAN IN 2-3 WEEKS BUT SAID THE EDD IS ABOUT JUNE 9TH 2023.SO THE WATCH ALERTED ME AND I TOOK A TEST TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT THAT IT BASICALLY CAUGHT THE PREGNANCY RIGHT AWAY!”
