The Download: Withings Scanwatch
Could a smartwatch potentially save your life?
The COVID-19 pandemic may be headline news, but doctors say now is not the time to ignore other health issues. And here's some tech that could help with your heart health and under-diagnosed diseases.
The Withings Scanwatch is a clinically validated hybrid smartwatch. With special sensors on the back, the Scanwatch constantly monitors the wearer's heart health and can perform a medical grade electrocardiogram on demand.
This information which is sent to the Withings app, the company says, can potentially detect problems like sleep apnea or AFib early.
To get the best data the company says you need to wear the watch a lot. And unlike other health monitoring watches the Scanwatch can be worn 24/7 because it can go 30 days before recharging.
