When Haryana resident Nitesh Chopra gifted his wife an Apple Watch Series 6 last year, he had no indication the device would be instrumental in saving his life.

The 34-year-old Yamuna Nagar resident had been experiencing some chest pain, his wife Neha asked him to take an ECG on the watch.

Some irregularities appeared in the ECG and the couple went to a hospital to seek treatment. An angiography later, Chopra was told there was a frightening 99.9 percent blockage in his arteries.

After a surgery and a few days in the hospital, Chopra was discharged.

“The doctor placed a stent in his heart and said that we were lucky that anything bad didn't happen,” Neha said

“It was the Apple Watch that actually gave as indication as because my husband is in his early 30s, we would have never even imagined him to be suffering from blocked arteries,” she added.

Neha was grateful that the smartwatch alerted them on time and wanted to thank Apple CEO Tim Cook

Cook responded to her. “I’m so glad you sought medical attention and received the treatment you needed. Thanks for sharing your story with us. Be well. Best, Tim,"
