There is almost a quarter of the world suffering from hypertension and blood pressure disorders are a major health concern. As the worlds moves towards mobility and Smartphone, Withings launches the blood pressure monitor which can be used anywhere with just an iOS enable device to accurately monitor your blood pressure.

It has been a while since I saw a personal blood pressure device my aunt use. The same concept of consumer friendly blood pressure measuring devices is in trend for years and now after a long research we are now gifted with an iOS enabled blood pressure device.

Monitoring your blood pressure and understanding its pattern is now a child’s play. All of the readings are saved to your secure online space from where you can retrieve your measurements or send it to your physician.

The Withings blood pressure monitor requires you an Apple iOS 3 device (or later) along with 4 AAA batteries. The device uses Oscillometric method for blood pressure calculation with an accuracy of 5%. You would also require its application from iTunes in order to use the device on iPhone.

Another important thing to note is that you can interact with various health specialists like Google Health, Microsoft Healthvault and health and sports coaches which makes the entire package really interesting.
