Smart watches have become extremely popular accessories and, in fact, it is no longer strange to see these devices populating the wrists of users. Over the last few years they have had spectacular growth and all this is thanks to their intelligent features such as heart rate measurement.
Of course, having innumerable features does not make the smartwatch you wear foolproof. In fact, they can have errors and even mark data that is not correct. The strangest and funniest case that has occurred to date is the clear example that these devices should not be fully trusted.
The story comes to us thanks to a Twitter user who has published an image that shows the description of an emergency room. In this description there is written the following “It is advised to repair smart watch”. Yes, it is strange that in a doctor’s office this has been written to a patient.
What is the reason for this sentence? The answer is found in the reason why this person has come to the emergency room. According to the emergency description, the patient went to the emergency room because the smart watch usually shows a pulse between 60 and 72 beats per minute, but the device would have started to mark a pulse of 00 beats per minute.

The pulse of discord: the smart watch reads 00 bpm and the patient is still alive
The situation sounds like something out of a sitcom, and in fact, many people think it’s been completely made up. We cannot confirm if it is something that has really happened, but responses have begun to appear in the tweet confirming that going to the consultation due to Smart Watches the pretty common thing.
In fact, several health workers have shared their experiences when dealing with these situations with different patients. Many of these toilets agree that due to smart watches Some hypochondria has begun to be generated since users constantly check their vital signs on these devices.
Logically, it is not the same to measure heart rate on a smart watch as it is on a medical device. In fact, you can find differences from a cheap smartwatch to one with a higher price. Taking all this into account, the situation is completely surreal just for the fact that with 00 bpm that person would be dead.
