The BMP core looks exactly like its predecessor, also with a similar arm cuff aesthetics. It can measure your blood pressure and also take ECG “electrocardiogram,”
Withings added an extra feature to this sophisticated gadget, which is the ability to detect valvular diseases in our hearts. The BMP core has a digital stethoscope that can detect if damage has been done to one of our heart valves before matters get out of hands.
The president of Withings, Eric, stressed that early and frequent monitoring is the key to preventing, identifying, and of course, managing several heart diseases that have claimed the lives of so many people.
The core is compatible with android and ios, it’s got a rechargeable battery that’s capable of holding a charge that’s going to last long enough to measure at least a hundred cardiovascular metrics. Another fun thing is, the entire data from the BMP core can be remotely shared with your doctor for prompt medical advice. Isn’t that cool?
Move ECG: health on motion
Connected health market so far is not doing bad for itself. A lot of health-focused connected gears and wearables are flooding the market unlike before. The CES ’19 is an attestation to that.
Withings, a French brand, took the CES ’19 expo as a perfect opportunity to exhibit the world’s first analog smartwatch that’s capable of recording and measuring electrocardiogram.
Although Apple unlocked the door to this concept with their Serie 4, however though, since then, Withings “a former Nokia owned, but now entirely independent firm” took the baton and continues to democratize the concept of electrocardiogram recording smart-watch.
Although in the US, Apple’s serie 4 has proven its worth by debuting an outstanding feature on the functionalities of the watch – ECG functionality, unfortunately, the same cannot be said about it in the European market as the Apple serie 4 is yet to secure a certification in the EU, even if it does secure a certification, the serie4 is still not entirely affordable, here’s where Withings ECG saves the day, everyone is entitled to the finest thing of life, and price shouldn’t be a barrier.
The Withings ECG smart-watch is 38mm with three beautiful watch hands; the first two indicates time while the last shows the level or progress of activities. Default strap is grey, made of silicone however Withings plans to roll out more designs and material in later years.
