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 over 50 technology patents on innovations, including miniaturization of blood pressure components. The wrist monitor measures daily activity, heart rate, and sleep quality, and will be able to be programmed to take a blood pressure reading while you sleep. It 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.  Changing the face of heart health with the Omron HeartGuide, President and CEO Ranndy Kellogg will be on stage at the WT | Wearable Technologies Conference 2018 USA in San Francisco on July 11-12!
