Apple's next invention could prove to be good for your heart

By Stella Inger. CREATED Feb 24, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Well it looks like Apple is on their way to new technology!

We're talking headphones that could monitor your heart rate!

Patent applications filed by Apple suggest that the company is investigating headphones that measure a range of health parameters.
    
So, here's how it would work...

The monitoring system uses "an audio output device" to measure a range of factors including body temperature, perspiration and heart rate.
    
It also has the potential to control your devices like an iPhone or iPad by simply shaking your head.
    
As wearable technology is becoming more popular, Apple is reportedly also working on the so called "iWatch."
   
It too may contain similar technologies.

I'm Stella Inger. I hope you'll join Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5, 6, and 1-. Don't forget, you can join the conversation at kgun9.com, Facebook and Twitter.

Have a great day!

Stella Inger
