Dear Apple: Face to Face — Apple Watch

Dear Apple: Face to Face — Apple Watch


♪ Music playing ♪ ♪ Dear Mr. Cook,
– Dear Apple, Dear Tim, To [email protected]… ♪ [FACETIME RINGING] Hey, how you doing?
– Hi! Hey! Good morning! Nice to meet you.
[MAN LAUGHS] OK, hello! [LAUGHS] So the run began as usual. I was 32 weeks pregnant. Getting ready to go to bed. The next morning,
I’d have notifications on my watch and my phone
saying… Your heart rate is elevated.
And I was like, “Huh.” Huh. That’s strange. And I run my EKG,
and it says 220 beats. And I’m like…
– Something’s not right. I told my husband,
like, we need to go. He was like, “Well, I’m
in the middle of cutting grass.” I’m like, “We need to go!” And then suddenly,
I woke up to EMTs. Oh, this is my husband, Kyle.
– Hey. [LAUGHS]
He’s going out to cut the grass. When I fell,
it automatically called 911, and then it calls my wife. When I think about
what happened, and what could have happened…. Once we got to the hospital, they realized it was
some sort of infection. My heart rate was spiking and it was causing
the baby’s heart rate to get lower and lower. So emergency C-section
and she was born. Had I not had surgery, it estimated that
I would have had a heart attack within less than 12 months. I mean, I’m like —
yeah, I have goosebumps. I don’t know if you can see them
through the camera. It’s crazy. It’s not something
you think of your watch… [GRUNTS] …saving your life. Can you wave hi? ♪ In the past, I didn’t prioritize
taking care of myself. Yeah, so these are probably one of the largest
pairs of pants I have. I’m standing in one
of the legs of them. But now I’ve gained
the ability to be active in ways that I never
would have dreamed of. All because
the computer on my wrist told me it was time
to fill the rings. Yeah, closing rings. It’s like this little reminder
going, “OK, you could
do a little better today.” When I see
the little rings of, like, get your moves in today,
sometimes I used to be like, “Mind your business,
Apple Watch!” But then it’s like,
[LAUGHS] you know what? I do need to get my move in. I like the idea of achievements
that you get for every small things done. It has — It just reminded me
I should stand up, by the way. I’m “The Blur.”
– He’s “The Blur.” Yeah, that’s his nickname
is “The Blur.” Harrison is
on the autism spectrum, and he’s on the cross country
and track teams here at the school. He was having some issues
with anxiety and crowd noise. The sound of the cheering
just throws me off. So I paired up my watch
with my headphones, and the music
helps me focus. When he started running
with the music playing, it was like seeing
a different athlete. This moment of triumph,
goosebumps, and tears, and it was cinematic! ♪ Apple needs to know
this happened. What you did in your
brainstorming sessions came to life
and helped save mine. Dear Tim,
– Dear Apple, Dear Mr. Cook,
– I just had to tell my story. I will be forever grateful… I had no idea that
one day it would save my life. What I want to say is,
“Thank you!” Thank you.
– Thank you. ♪
