Withings Blood Pressure MonitorWithings is a company that makes products to help us measure our own health. Now, they’ve made their Smart Blood Pressure Monitor even smarter by making it wireless. Hypertension affects 25% of the world’s population, 50% of whom are unaware of the severity of their condition. It’s called the silent killer because it has no specific symptoms (other than high blood pressure, anyway). The Withings Blood Pressure Monitor helps you stay aware of your own blood pressure. It’s easy to use and now it’s wireless too.

What’s more, it’s almost fashionable; it certainly doesn’t look like a piece of medical equipment. The cuff is easy to use and highly accurate.

The Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor interacts with your iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth. Results—which include systolic and diastolic blood pressure along with heart rate—are displayed right in the Withings Health Mate app. The app even graphs and plots curves to easily detect trends over time. Be sure to share your results with your physician.

The Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor will be available soon for $129.95. For more information, visit withings.com.
