Apple's new smartwatch could help battle COVID-19

Apple unveiled its new line of smartwatches this week with a new health sensor that might help in the battle against COVID-19.

Image Matrix Tech editor Djuro Sen told Sky News the watch measures blood oxygen levels, which may help alert a user to a possible infection.

“And over 15 seconds it looks at the changes or the colour of the blood and it can tell how much oxygen is in there,” he said.

“It’s an incredibly advanced watch … it does everything as well to remind you to wash your hands.”
