Withings blood pressure monitor for iPhone works as advertised



(Las Vegas, Nevada - January 6, 2011- CES) - Yesterday I told you about the Withings Blood Pressure monitor and today I gave it a try. This is an amazing product that works as advertised. The cuff has a little pump (that silver cylinder in the photo) and after plugging the cable into your iOS device you just touch one button and the cuff inflates on your arm. A short time later you have your blood pressure reading. That's my arm in the sleeve below and the little fan under the vertical bar on the screen indicates the cuff is inflating.

This is one of the best things I've seen at this CES and hopefully it will encourage more people to self monitor their blood pressure.



(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.
