remember the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor introduced back in 2011? well, after three years in the market, it has finally gone wireless and is now compatible with Android devices too. aesthetically, the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor inherits the sleek design of the original wired model, featuring the same medically-approved blood pressure cuff garners, sans the cable snaking out of the cuff, naturally. to use, all you need to do is to wrap the cuff around your arm and switch it on. once activated, it automatically connects to your paired smartphone via Bluetooth and launches the Withings Health Mate app.
hitting the start button initiates the blood pressure measuring process where the device collects your systolic, diastolic blood pressure, as well as heart rate. these datas are recorded, saved and can be compared to standards for better understanding. the companion app also automatically graphs and plots curves so you will have an idea of your health trend at a glance, and as always, you can choose to share your blood stats with your family physician to keep him/her in the loop. the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor is available in Europe on EU Withings web store and it will soon be available in the US for $129.95.
