iWatch: An Inspiring Tale of Technology That Saved a Man’s Life

Every Gen-Z has a smartwatch these days and Apple Watches are definitely one of them. Who doesn’t want their steps counted or their heart rate recorded? We live in a fast-paced world with our desk jobs and social media. Finding some time to live in the present or exercise isn’t just about a day-to-day routine unless we add them to our wrists.

Apple took the first step into the advent of smartwatches that have now become our companions: traveling with us to work and counting our steps when we run. Also known as an iWatch, Apple Watches make sure we never miss a call, notification, or an important meeting by keeping track of all the schedules we enter on our phones.

These smartwatches as our virtual assistants have their advantages and disadvantages. You are always up-to-date with your schedule unless you lose them. But the best part yet? You can trace them back! All you need to do is link them to your iPhones to get the watch’s location.

The Apple Watch and the band are two different components in a smartwatch unlike a regular watch (that has the screen and the band attached). This makes it easy to switch bands according to your outfit and occasion. Wristcam is one such Apple Watch band that allows you to access amazing features like live video messaging, checking messages and notifications, and more!

A Real-life Inspirational Story: How an iWatch Saved a Man’s Life

23-year-old Ryan McConnaughey was biking through a mountainside in San Diego when he fell and broke his vertebrae, leaving him paralysed below his neck. He lay there in the middle of nowhere knowing that he needed immediate medical attention. He analysed his possibilities of getting up, screaming for help, or waving down any passing vehicles. None of these could be possible because he wasn’t even near human habitation with his arms and legs practically useless.

That is when he remembered that his friend Peter knew the track he had taken. They had ridden together earlier that day before parting ways. Luckily he had his iWatch intact on his wrist. The voice-activated assistant, Siri came to the saviour as Ryan called Peter over the speakerphone. His cell was in his backpack and he realised that without his iWatch he wouldn’t have been able to tell this tale today.

Peter located Ryan and emergency services soon reached him. He left a voice note for his girlfriend, Lauren Housh, emotionally explaining what happened. Later this voicemail was shared on TikTok and garnered millions of views. Ryan is an inspiring example of how an iWatch could be the greatest pal you could ever have. He is still recovering and we wish him the best in life.

Isn’t this an inspiring story? It’s great how a device could be a medium for saving one’s life. Truly, choosing the right devices are virtue in disguise. All thanks to the iWatch!
