Omron HeartGuide

The Omron HeartGuide™ is the first wearable oscillometric wrist blood pressure monitor. Omron has worked to miniaturize a blood pressure monitor into a wristwatch while ensuring accuracy that will be clinically-validated before it arrives for retail purchase. With significant advancements in design, comfort and technology since previewing the wearable prototype last year, Omron has filed has over 50 technology patents on innovations never achieved before, including miniaturization of blood pressure components. The Omron HeartGuide measures daily activity, heart rate and sleep quality, and will be able to be programmed to take a blood pressure reading while you sleep. The patented watch band was created using a flexible synthetic material five times stronger than steel, which allows the band to inflate when taking a reading while withstanding air pressure and maintaining its shape to ensure accurate measurement. It syncs via Bluetooth with the Omron Connect app, making it easy to store, track and share vital heart health data with healthcare providers.
