Digital healthcare company Omron unveiled its slimmest blood pressure monitor at CES 2017.
Omron’s Project Zero 2.0 is a compact blood pressure monitor which resembles a smartwatch. The attractive device can help wearers track their blood pressure among other useful information such as sleep patterns and physical activity, as well as regular fitness wearable features such as steps.
The information accrued from the wearable can be synced and viewed on the Omron Connect app, where the user can manage their health and share the information with their doctor.
Information included within the app includes systolic, diastolic and pulse readings. The app also tracks BMI, body fat percentage and weight so users can keep track of their health over time.
For accurate readings, the device features sensors that can work out the position of your arm, and alert you to move it for more precise readings.
For added convenience the device will feature a rechargeable battery that will supposedly last about one week on a single charge.
Omron hasn’t released any information regarding pricing and availability but the company is pursuing FDA approval.
