According to a 34-year-old woman on Reddit, the Apple watch indicated that her average resting heart rate had significantly increased in just a few days, which made her suspect that something was off.

"Usually, my resting heart rate is about 57 and my heart rate has increased to 72. It's not a big jump, but it showed up on an alert that it's been higher for 15 days. I started trying to figure out why," she wrote on the platform.

"The watch knew I was pregnant before I knew it! I would have never ever tested without wearing my watch because I have not had a period to be late on one," she added.

Additionally, the tech giant launched the Apple Watch Series 8 in India, which offers best-in-class health features like an innovative temperature sensor that enables advanced features for women's health and Crash Detection for severe car crashes.

Apple Watch Series 8 starts at Rs 45,900 and Apple Watch SE starts at Rs 29,900. HDFC offers a cashback of Rs 3,000 on the Apple Watch Series 8 and Rs 2,000 on Apple Watch SE.
