Asus VivoWatch BP Could Replace Classic Blood Pressure Monitors


When not amazing everyone with powerful gaming smartphones or unexpected features on laptops, Asus kept the audience interested at Computex 2018 with a very bulky fitness tracker.

The newly-announced Vivo Watch BP is a bit plus-size but the dimensions make sense once you see what it’s for. This fitness tracker aims to replace traditional blood pressure monitors by combining PPG (photoplethysmography) and EKG (electrocardiogram) to read the wearer’s blood pressure and heart rate. To activate this feature, users simply have to press a finger to the sensor and keep it there for a few seconds.

Of course, it also includes the standard features you’d expect from a fitness tracker, like heart rate, activity and sleep monitoring, all of this with a 28-days battery life.

According to Asus, the dedicated HealthAI app would also provide personalized health advice and could share valuable data with the wearer’s doctors.

Launching in August in Europe, the VivoWatch BP will carry a price tag of $169. Once it passes FDA inspection, it will launch in the US as well.

After reports of an Apple Watch saving someone’s life, the VivoWatch BP could be one of the best holiday gifts for an elderly family member.
