Stacey, a registered nurse, rushed her daughter to the hospital where the accuracy of the watch’s reading was confirmed: Hospital staff quickly discovered that Deanna suffered from a chronic kidney condition.
“Instantly I started to pray and thank God for her having that watch,” said Tom Recktenwald, Deanna’s father.
Stacey wrote to Apple thanking them for their life-saving technology, prompting CEO Tim Cook thank them for sharing their story. He tweeted, “Stories like Deanna’s inspire us to dream bigger and push harder every day.”
