Doctors credit Fitbit for helping save a life

US doctors at an emergency room in New Jersey say they recently used heart rate data from a patient's Fitbit to help diagnose atrial fibrillation.

They published the case study this month in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.

The doctors report the patient showed up at emergency department after a generalised tonic-clonic seizure, with no idea his heart was in trouble.
