“That’s really weird because it’s never happened before. It just kept going off,” said the mother.
The concerned mother took her daughter to the hospital, where doctors noticed a tumor in her appendix.
When doctors found Imani’s tumor, it had already spread to other parts of her body, requiring her to undergo surgery to remove it.
“If the watch didn’t go off, I probably would have just waited and taken her in the next couple of days,” Kitchen was quoted as saying.
“If she didn’t have that watch, it could have been so much worse,” she added.
Imani had surgery at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in the US to remove the remaining tumor, according to the report.
Earlier this month, Apple Watch detected a 34-year-old woman’s pregnancy.
The woman on Reddit posted that the watch indicated that her average resting heart rate had significantly increased in just a few days, which made her suspect that something was off.
