    Interesting interview in a cardiology journal. Does this professor know Apple secrets or is he just guessing? Going for medical monitoring could be a huge market, incredibly innovative, and require intricate hardware and software integration that is Apple's strength:

    'Dr. Hans-Christoph Diener, ESC spokesperson, predicted in an interview that physicians can soon expect to see a huge influx of patients with newly discovered silent AF. The impetus will be the much-anticipated introduction of the Apple iWatch, which he said could happen later this year.

    "The detection of silent atrial fibrillation is going to change very quickly. This watch will have a device in it which measures pulse, and it has software which detects atrial fibrillation. More features are available for people with various diseases: It can measure oxygen saturation, pulse, blood pressure. They’ve even developed a chip to measure glucose transdermally. It’s amazing," said Dr. Diener, professor and chair of the department of neurology at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany.'

    He’s predicting. That means he knows nothing more than Gene Munster does about the mythical Apple Television. He’s also just repeating an existing rumor and adding his own twist to it.
