Manage your blood pressure and more with the 3-in-1 wireless Withings BPM Core

By

French-based medical IoT company Withings continues to deliver with its wireless blood pressure monitor, developed with cardiologists and offering one-button activation.

Withings has been making an impressive name for itself with an increasing range of simple to use, but surprisingly effective, Wi-Fi-enabled home medical devices - all of which have been clinically certified for accuracy and reliability.

Some of these are clever augments to devices you already have, such as the Withings Cardio Body Scale. It's a scale, of course, but it measures more than weight alone, and it wirelessly transmits readings to the companion Withings Healthmate app so you can monitor, track, and analyse your results without having to write anything down. Of course, Healthmate also syncs with Apple Health and Google Fit so all the other apps in your health and fitness ecosystem benefit.

Others are things you might not have ever considered, such as the Withings Sleep Monitor, a mat that plugs into power and rests under your mattress. From then on you don't need to do anything except sleep … the device also feeds info into the HealthMate app wirelessly, giving you remarkable insight into how well you are sleeping and thus helping inform the actions you can take to improve. I've been using this device myself since World Health Sleep Day in March and it genuinely shocked me how awful and erratic my own routines had become. With the aid of the metrics and patterns surfaced by Withings products, I have since made positive changes.

There are others, such as the Withings Scanwatch smartwatch which fits seamlessly into either an Apple or Google lifestyle, recording vital measurements and with 30 days of battery life.

That brings us to the Withings BPM Core Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor. As you might expect, it monitors your blood pressure. Specifically, it provides a medically accurate measurement of your systolic and diastolic blood pressure as well as your heart rate. Not only that, it includes a digital stethoscope, a medical-grade electrocardiogram with two electrodes in the cuff and a third in the steel tube. You get all three-in-one with the BPM Core.

It's thus useful for any person who has concerns over blood pressure and is wanting to measure - and therefore, manage - this aspect of their health.

You could get your blood pressure checked at a pharmacy or with your doctor. However, having your own device means you can take a reading at a consistent time of day, or before and after certain activities. It also means you can take readings in the comfort of your own home without adding additional blood pressure or stress from a clinical environment.

Being a wireless device, you can easily take the BPM with you whenever you travel, taking readings, and not worrying about recording them or having to hook any cables up.

Alternatively, it means family members can keep an eye on, for example, their parent's blood pressure. And no matter who is using the device, it means trends and historical measurements are all tracked and observable.

iTWire found using the device is simplicity itself; apply the cuff and press a button, then sit back and wait. The device does the rest, and the results appear both on-screen and within the app. The systolic reading is the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart contracts and the diastolic reading is the pressure in your arteries when your heart relaxes between beats. Normal blood pressure varies by factors such as age but typically blood pressure below 120/80 is considered normal. Variations may indicate elevated blood pressure, hypertension, or hypertensive crisis, or even low blood pressure. Factors that will influence your blood pressure include age and gender, but also smoking, weight, alcohol intake, salt intake, caffeine, and most certainly stress.

With the Withings BPM Core Blood Pressure Monitor there's one thing you can be less stressed about, and that's how you will track and monitor your blood pressure. The smartphone app also helps you share your medical data with your doctor, with only a few taps.

It's an old adage, but a truism, that what gets measured gets improved. That's most certainly the case here; monitoring your blood pressure with Withing's easy-to-use and clinically validated tech is part of your solution to improving your health and well-being.

Withings created the world's first connected blood pressure monitor, and you can buy the BPM Core for $449.99. Withings also offers the BPM Connect model for $179.99 which excludes the rechargeable battery, ECG record, and digital stethoscope.
