    Focusing on heart rate rhythm.
  • Connie Guglielmo 9/12/2017 5:25:27 PM
    Lots of questions re: Apple Watch shipments. Apple doesn't disclose sales numbers for the smartwatch -- so saying it's the best-selling phone in the world without data just opens it up to more questions.

  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:25:45 PM

    Atrial fibrillation is something Fitbit has also been exploring with health initiatives.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:26:15 PM
    It will use data from Apple Watch and analyze irregular heart rates and alert users, he says.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:26:25 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:26:30 PM
