The Apple Watch is proving itself to be a useful tool for monitoring serious medical conditions, and not just for fitness.
A mobile health app made by start-up Cardiogram, backed by Silicon Valley venture firms including Andreessen Horowitz, has proven to be shockingly popular among the people who download it, the company's co-founder Brandon Ballinger told CNBC. Although only 250,000 people have downloaded it to try it, more than 100,000 people use it every day. Of the people who kept the app, more than 73% open it every single day.
Cardiogram uses the Apple Watch's built-in heart sensor to give you advice about heart health -- for instance, showing when you're unusually stressed out by checking your heart rate.
The company is also doing original research, and on Thursday it unveiled the results of a study on Thursday showing how the Apple Watch can be used to detect abnormal heart rhythms.
