I'm obsessed with the data on my Apple watch and it affects my judgment and health.
My cardiologist says that the only thing I should check out regularly is my hearth rhythm while I'm obsessed with the calories burned.
What do you think?

I think there is a difference between obsession and focused determination.
I think we need to try and free ourselves from negativity. Let go of negative people, negative habits, negative thoughts and negative actions. I think if your digital smart watch is causing you negative compulsive thoughts and actions it is time to stop wearing a watch. Or switch to a wind up.

Sometimes it’s nice to just disconnect and be present with real life. Sure the watch can do a lot of things but you’re smarter and more callable than a watch and you control your life! A watch doesn’t control you

I think the idea of smart watches and everyone needing one is bunk.

Apple with their brilliant marketing has convinced the population at large that a depreciating asset with software that will eventually stop being supported, a battery that will will eventually stop working and not be replaceable and electronics that will eventually fail is somehow actually worth 500-1500+ dollars! And not only that has roped people into buying a new one every couple of years!!!!!
It amazes me.

I’ll stick with my Rolex thanks very much.
And my few other real time pieces that will hold their value over time. (Or at least much of their value, if not appreciate in value!)

I realize that this does not address your original problem.
However - it’s like Facebook and all other electronic “connectivity devices”. We don’t need them. We’ve got by for centuries without them and I think that’s a good thing.
We’re inundated with so much information everyday already- why add to the noise?

I hear you but my cardiologist recommends that I check my heartbeats regularly (I have arrhythmias).

See it time and time again.
parients call us with blood pressure emergencies. Doctor tells them to “monitor” their blood pressure at home. At they take it to the extremes. Taking it 15-30 times a day. Got their self stress to a max from the readings they’re getting and don’t know how to comprehend.
Or buying a cheap home machine , and after a month worth of readings it needs to be re-calibrated. Getting reading that anyone with any sort of medical awareness would know that their symptoms doesn’t match what would come with the readings of an extreme hypo or hyper blood pressure.
We arrive and our machine knocks out a picture perfect pressure, and we’re on our way.

Anyways point being. I assure you, you’re doctor ask you to “monitor” blood pressure or heart rate at home , they are not suggesting you take it to the extreme. Checking it constantly until it becomes an absolute obsession.
Take it off your wrist if it’s a distraction. Go about your day as you would without it. You’ll feel better already ..

My heart issues are serious and can't be controlled by medication. If my cardiologist asks me to keep my BP in check I'd better do it. He's more worried than I am (except when I almost faint).

Im not questioning your medical issues. And not suggesting you neglect your health in any way possible.
But here you say your cardiologist ask to “keep your BP in check “

where in your first post

I'm obsessed with the data on my Apple watch and it affects my judgment and health.
My cardiologist says that the only thing I should check out regularly is my hearth rhythm while I'm obsessed with the calories burned.

Youre saying you are obsessed with what the watch says. It affects your judgment and health. Obsessed with calories burned.

I don’t think this is what your cardiologist is suggesting when he says keep it in check..
Again going back to my last post , being obsessed and the stress of the constant monitoring is only doing it worse if anything.

Each to their own.

Oh and I’d faint to if I was doing the amount of cardio you does a day ;)
