Omron Project Zero BP6000 is Both a Blood Pressure Monitor and a Smartwatch
Many smartwaches or fitness trackers include an heart rate monitor, but instead many people need to monitor their blood pressure to make sure it’s not too high (hypertension) or low (hypotension). Usually this involves either going to the doctor, or doing measurements at home with a blood pressure monitor by placing a cuff on the upper arm, and in this should take a short time, but many people may still not want to bother with the procedure. So Omron has designed a new blood pressure monitor that looks like a large smartwatch, and includes the same function as fitness monitors, in order to simply the process further, and have more people regularly measure their blood pressure.
Technical details about Project Zero wrist blood pressure monitor (BPM) are not fully available yet, but we do now the company is going through FDA approval, so contrary to gadgets with heat rate monitors whose measurements can not be fully trusted, it will be reliable and accurate at +/- 3mm Hg per hear beat. When you take a measurement, the wrist band will slightly squeeze your wrist. just like when using a cuff. The device will also remind users to take medication and record the time they take to improve. Omron BPM will also be compatible with Omron Connect mobile app, available for Android and iOS, which can share information with a personal physician.
The watch will also track your sleep, measure your heart rate, count your steps, estimate the calories you’ve burnt through the day, the distance walked, and… display the time of the day. The company has also developed project zero upper arm blood pressure monitor (P7000 model) integrating a display and Bluetooth Smart connectivity. Charbax interviewed the company, and filmed both devices with the part about P6000 starting at 2:50.
Eventually more details should surface on Omron Project Zero page. Both products should become available late 2016, and sell for less than $200.
