Gift for the Heart

Appears in the December 2021 issue.

The smartwatch has been a popular Christmas gift idea for several years, but beyond its high-tech messaging and browsing capabilities that wrist strap can actually double as the gift of better health awareness. Especially for those with a history of heart problems or at risk of a stroke, wearers can be constantly informed of their heart rate and rhythm. A gift that just might save a life? Now there’s a thought that counts. Apple’s Series 7 Watch ($399+) has an electrical heart sensor and ECG app.
