Forget Millennials, Apple Believes Seniors Can Benefit Most from New Apple Watch

How Apple’s New Smartwatch Could Help Home-Based Care Providers

The health features of the latest version of the Apple Watch are specifically targeted to seniors. This wearable device can monitor heart-related conditions, has technology to run an electrocardiogram and is able to detect falls and call for help if necessary.

Apple is so serious about what the Apple Watch can do to improve the lives of seniors, it is working with major insurance companies hoping it may become subsidized for millions of people. An article in the Home Health Care News, How Apple’s New Smartwatch Could Help Home-Based Care Providers, also notes that biometric data taken via the smartwatch can be stored in the app and shared with physicians. Apple COO Jeff Williams calls the Apple Watch “an intelligent guardian for your health.”

In addition to its new health features, the new Apple Watch also is larger than previous models. This makes it easier for seniors to use.
