The Most Exciting Moments of Apple’s Event, as Told By Viewers’ Heart Rates

The heart rate monitoring facilities of a Apple Watch got a shout-out during yesterday’s event: a new watch will guard some-more heartbeat-related metrics and Apple will partner with AmWell and Stanford for a medical study. But during a same time, heart rate app Cardiogram was sensitively tracking how users reacted to a day’s announcements.

Users opted in to this project, so nobody’s heart rate was celebrated but their permission. Here are a tip 5 moments, as told by users’ averaged heart rates:

  • 1:20pm, as Apple was scheming to announce a new Apple Watch. (76.1 beats per minute)
  • 1:27pm, a proclamation of a Apple Heart Study. (75.8 bpm)
  • 1:33pm, when Dierdre Caldbeck took a phone call on her Apple Watch while paddleboarding. (76.3)
  • 1:42pm, a proclamation of a Apple TV 4K. This was a top normal heart rate of a presentation. (78.1)
  • 2:25pm, when FaceID was announced (77.4 bpm), followed by a dump to a lowest heart rate of a event a small while after when a iPhone X’s cost was suggested as $999.
