Health Alert (CNN): Wearable technology is changing how diseases are detected. The mobile health app "Cardiogram" and the University of California San Francisco conducted a study finding that the Apple Watch can detect diabetes with 85% accuracy.

Macworld reports they used about 14,000 people to track results. Heart rate sensors in the watch can pick up on any irregularities that point to specific conditions.

"Cardiogram" has also found that hypertension, sleep apnea, and atrial fibrillation can be detected. Results of the study were presented this week at an artificial intelligence conference in Louisiana.
