Show Notes Series 1 Episode 2

Tech News
Apple Watch used to track heart irregularities, seizures, mental health issues, and more. The conducted a study with the second version of the Apple Watch. The study is not applicable to the first version.
I may need to get a new watch!!!
“Late last month, Apple launched a new study in partnership with Stanford University, one of many studies the company has embarked on since the device’s 2015 launch, that will track Apple Watch users’ heart rhythms for irregularity. This type of data collection can be done with the current model’s heart rate monitor, but more advanced forms of tracking and testing, like EKGs, would require all new hardware and software. On the same day, the Federal Drug Administration cleared the Apple Watch’s first medical device accessory, an EKG reader built into a watch strap from medical device company AliveCor.

App of the Week: Voxer by Voxer Pro LLC
For iPhone, Android and a web app.
Voxer works like a walkie talkie, using WiFi or cellular, but it is otherwise free (the paid version is $3.99 and includes more features like transcription and the ability to recall a message). Voxer is great for conversations without the need for the other person (or people, for groups) to be listening at the same time.
You send a voice message and the recipient can listen and respond when it’s convenient for them. You can also send text, photo and video over Voxer.
The Voxer messages are encrypted end to end
I use the free version.
Voxer has been key to my productivity and support in my business. My admin and I use Voxer for quick and easy communication. This is our primary method of communication, and we are able to go back and read or listen to messages as needed.
I also use Voxer to communicate with my business coach, mentors and business friends. I can send them questions, messages and wins and they can respond when it is convenient. This keeps the communication functional without interrupting them when they are working.
