WIRELESS BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR | BY WITHINGS
Most of us have used a home blood pressure monitor at some point or other, either for medical purposes or just for our curiosity’s sake – nothing new there. But given that we live in a world dominated by all devices smart and wireless, the process of measuring your vital stats has also taken on a completely new guise – and now, with Withings wireless blood pressure monitor, even taking out your blood pressure becomes super-fast and ultra-simple, all at a quick press of a button.
The Withings wireless blood pressure monitor syncs automatically with an accompanying Health Mate application on your smart device via Bluetooth connection (or even through your smartphone cable) to deliver high-accuracy feedback and value recommendations, all with a view to keeping you in good health. This smart blood pressure monitor works with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android smartphones and tablets (iOS 5.0 or above and Android 4.0 or higher) and the monitor cuff is simple to apply even without extensive medical knowledge. Once you slip on the cuff, simply turn the Withings blood monitor on and position your arm properly, and the device will automatically sync with the Health Mate application on your phone (the application is available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store).
Once connected, the application will take out your readings and instantly display the info on an easy-to-understand color chart based on the National Health Institute standards. You can access your blood pressure stats on the screen of your smart device or the online dashboard on your Mac or PC, and you can go back to them at some point later on in case you need to cross-compare your stats – all the readings are safely backed up on the Withings Health Cloud so you need not worry about losing track of your previous measurements. You can also share your blood pressure readings with your doctor at the next appointment – simply tap the smartphone screen a few times and all vital stats are right there, in the palm of your hand in as many as five languages (English, French, German, Spanish and Italian). Plus, all the readings taken via the Withings wireless blood monitor are automatically synced with over 100 cool applications and services on fitness-oriented partner sites, including Runkeeper, Microsoft HealthVault and iBP.
Just like most home blood pressure monitors, the Withings smart device takes out your blood pressure measurements by means of the cuff oscillometric method – all you have to do is put the comfy cuff on and let it inflate automatically. The cuff also boasts controlled release and circumference of 22-42 centimeters (9-17 inches), and the accuracy of readings is incredible, with ±3 mmHg or 2 percent of result oscillation for blood pressure stats and 5 percent of accuracy oscillation for heart rate readings. The smart blood pressure monitor can also be paired with Withings Pulse, Smart Body Analyzer and Wireless Scale WS-30 for some extra health feedback and best medical protection. Measuring 5.5 x 3.5 x 6 inches and weighing a slight one pound, the wireless blood pressure monitor runs on 4 AAA batteries included in the delivery box, and in case you have some how-to dilemmas, you can always check the accompanying user manual. Comfortable, reliable and easy to use, the Withings wireless blood pressure monitor is everything you’ll ever need to get accurate blood pressure self-measurements and have them all displayed on your smartphone screen in a straightforward color chart with detailed readings and recommended values – just what the doctor ordered.
