CES 2019 – Omron HeartGuide Wearable Blood Pressure Monitor

Detecting a sneaky heart condition could get a little easier with this watch: Just lift your arm and push a button.

After a two-year gestation period at CES, the Omron HeartGuide blood pressure watch is real. For $499 on preorder you get a watch that is a marvel of miniaturization: It contains tiny pumps and air bladders that conduct the same kind of blood pressure test that is normally done in a clinic with much larger gear.

Since it uses the same technique as clinical gear, it was just cleared by the FDA and comes from the largest maker of consumer blood pressure machines.
