Withings launches wireless BP monitor in India

New Delhi, Aug 31 (IANS) Taking home health monitoring to a whole new level, French consumer electronics company Withings has announced the launch of a wireless blood pressure monitor for the Indian market.

Sleek in design, the device features Bluetooth connectivity and Android compatibility, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Our device is a medical device, but we’ve made it cool and fashionable! Patients don’t feel the need to hide it away and, yet, they get to share highly accurate results with their physician,” said Cedric Hutchings, Co-founder of Withings.

“Designing attractive and simple to use devices is the only way the connected health revolution can become a reality,” Hutchings noted.

With the new device, users simply wrap the cuff around their arm and turn it on.

It automatically connects with a smartphone via Bluetooth and instantly opens the Withings Health Mate application.

By tapping the start button, the cuff inflates and commences taking the users’ systolic, diastolic blood pressure as well as heart rate.

Results are automatically shown on the screen, saved and compared to standards for better understanding.

The application automatically graphs and plots curves to easily detect trends over time. It also allows users to set reminders and send readings to a physician.

Available on Amazon, the wireless blood pressure monitor is priced at Rs 11,999, the statement added.
