Retired pharma professional R. Rajhans uses an Apple Watch Series 5. The smartwatch was a gift from his son Siddharth who was a Harvard University alumnus. After graduation, Siddharth has been recruited by several Silicon Valley big tech companies. He decided to gift his father the smartwatch since he has irregular heartbeats.

While wearing the watch, his father received signals from it telling he was having irregular heartbeats. The doctor said that Rajhans had a low ejection fraction and needed immediate heart surgery. But because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they had to delay the surgery. And with the help of the Apple Watch, Raijans could monitor his heart’s condition.

After his father underwent his heart surgery, Siddharth sent an email to Apple CEO Tim Cook telling how the Apple Watch had saved his father’s life.

In his reply, Cook thanked Siddharth for sharing the news and said that the team of Apple would connect with him. After that, the Rajhans family who lives in Indore was contacted by Apple’s team. Cook also wished his father fast recovery post-surgery.
