Wearable blood pressure monitor

Omron’s HeartGuide is an FDA-approved blood pressure monitor in a wristwatch, providing results in as little as 30 seconds. The device looks like a standard watch until closer inspection of the wristband, which includes an embedded inflatable cuff to take blood pressure readings. HeartGuide alerts users to reposition their arm if needed for improved accuracy and holds up to 100 readings, working in conjunction with its companion app HeartAdvisor. Omron, which sells blood pressure monitors in drugstores already, is selling this new device for $499 and it is available for online purchase.
