Apple is the process to come up with headphones that can monitor your heart rate and blood pressure, if sources are to be believed. Moreover, it can automatically alert doctors if a dangerously high reading is taken.
Sources further said, Apple is set to launch EarPods that are also expected to contain a tiny tracking device so they can tell the user where they are if lost.
Apple’s new EarPods will have sensors in them, for heart rate & blood pressure and iBeacons so they don’t get lost. They will require the lightning port, it’s why the audio jack was moved to the bottom.
It stores the data in a similar way to thumbprint point data, fully encrypted and nothing identifiable. But nice to send to your doctor to keep track of at which point your blood pressure started rising.
Apple’s headphones could monitor the pulse of runners and automatically track their health and performance. The embedded activity sensor can pick up temperature, perspiration and heart rate data, among other metrics.
