Monitor your blood pressure with your iPhone



(Las Vegas, Nevada - January 5, 2011- CES) - Withings, the company that brought us a WiFi-enabled bathroom scale you can connect to your iPhone, has announced a blood-pressure monitor that does the same with your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.


The Withings Blood Pressure monitor includes a connectible cuff and an app that launches as soon as the cuff is connected. Data is recorded and saved to the user’s secure online space for easy measurement access and retrieval through the app on their Apple iOS device or other web-connected screen through the Withings site. withings_bpm_screen_5_web.jpgThe cuff, however, is only made to attach to Apple iOS devices.

Withings says the monitor will be available for $129 in January. I have an appointment to get some hands-on time with this gadget tomorrow at 11 AM, so stay tuned for an update.
