Withings launches smartwatch for detection of cardiovascular, sleep apnea issues Featured

By

Consumer electronics company Withings has launched what it says is the first hybrid smartwatch combine medical grade electrocardiogram and sleep apnea detection as part of treatment for cardiovascular and sleep issues.

Developed by cardiologists and sleep experts, Withings - formerly Nokia Health says the smartwatch - dubbed ScanWatch - is its most medically advanced wearable to date, helping users and their physicians monitor overall health and to identify highly prevalent, yet largely underdiagnosed cardiovascular and sleep issues early.

Pending medical clearance, the France headquartered Withings says its ScanWatch will be available in Australia and New Zealand in Q2 2020 starting at A$479, and in addition to the two watch size options (38mm and 42mm), users will be able to select from a variety of colour options and select from swappable soft silicone and leather wristbands.

According to Withings, with nearly 1 billion adults worldwide estimated to have obstructive sleep apnea and research showing that atrial fibrillation will reach epidemic proportions worldwide in the coming decade, the need for these high tech, medical devices are now more prevalent than ever.

“ScanWatch is our most ambitious medical tracker and purposely designed to detect the early presence of AFib and sleep apnea - two related issues that are extremely common yet largely undiagnosed, despite their known impact on multiple health conditions,” said Withings CEO, Mathieu Letombe.

Worn throughout the day and night, ScanWatch provides an early warning system, collecting and sharing critical health data with users and their physicians.”

Promoting its new smartwatch,Withings said: “With an impressive 30-day battery life, ScanWatch shares the elegant analogue look of previous Withings’ hybrid watches with a number of enhanced design elements. It features a larger digital display than previous models as well as improved navigation through newly created crown dial.”
