As co-founder Johnson Hsieh explained about the newly released study:

Your heart is with your pancreas via the autonomic nervous system. As people develop the stages of , their pattern of heart rate variability shifts. In 2015, the Framingham Heart Study showed that high resting heart rate and low heart rate variability predicts who will develop diabetes over a 12-year period. In 2005, the ARIC study showed that heart rate variability declines faster in diabetics than non-diabetics over a 9-year period.

DeepHeart, a neutral network, took the Cardiogram and concluded it offered an accuracy rating of 85 percent.

Hsieh noted:

14,011 users of Cardiogram for and Android Wear were recruited into UCSF’s Health eHeart Study. Then, 33,628 person-weeks of health sensor data was used to train a deep neural network by presenting it with samples from people with and without diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, atrial fibrillation, and high cholesterol.

As someone recently diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes, this is very big and more proof the Apple Watch is fast becoming an important tool in the healthcare industry.

Cardiogram is free on the App Store.
