AliveCor Kardiaband EKG reader is the first FDA certified medical device accessory for the Apple Watch

Today the US FDA has approved the first medical device accessory for the Apple Watch range. It's a watch strap called Kardiaband, it's made by a company called AliveCor, and it serves as an EKG reader for your wrist.
