Apple and Johnson & Johnson have announced a new study that may make the Apple Watch even more of a life-saving device. Building on the device’s ability to detect afib, the app-based program is designed to explore whether early detection of irregular heartbeats can reduce the risk of a stroke.

The Heartline Study is open to all U.S. Apple Watch owners 65 and older who are Original Medicare recipients. Users will receive tips for improving your sleep, fitness, and wellness, and be asked to participate in a series of surveys and activities which will reward points for the time and effort spent. According to J&J, these points may be redeemed for $150 or more in monetary rewards.
