By Gordon Gottsegen

A Florida teenager may have ended up in the hospital, but things could’ve reportedly been a lot worse if she wasn’t wearing her Apple Watch, according to local news station ABC WFTS Tampa Bay.

According to a reported statement by the family, 18-year-old Deanna Recktenwald was at church when her Apple Watch sent her an alert about an unusually high heart rate. Recktenwald reported feeling fine besides a headache and shortness of breath. Later, she received another alert that her heart rate had hit 190 beats per minute. She ended up in the emergency room, according to the statement.

Apple Watch Heart MonitorDoctors figured out Recktenwald was suffering from kidney failure and diagnosed her with a chronic kidney disease. Recktenwald’s family said the disease would’ve gone unnoticed if it weren’t for her Apple Watch.
