Johnson & Johnson to Use Apple Watch App for Heart Study

Johnson & Johnson said Thursday that it has joined with Apple Inc. on a research study that will test the Apple Watch’s ability to help detect early irregular heart conditions in certain people before something life-threatening happens.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc., part of J&J’s family of research and development companies, will work on the study. The company will use its J&J-developed heart health monitoring app on the latest Apple Watch series. The app will help detect the irregular heart rhythm of people living with atrial fibrillation, a type of heart arrhythmia that often goes unnoticed and can make them more prone to strokes.

J&J said the study will help measure the efficacy of the Apple Watch in its ability to provide irregular heart rhythm notifications that could help with the early detection of heart conditions, as well as show whether certain medications are effective.
