About this deal

garmin as for theECG on the venue 2, hopefully this will "officially" come to Europe soon as I am sure many could be interested and they could have a good uptake on this on the EU market... claimed to be accurate in the same way as the garmin index sII scale claims accurate body composition? ie it will guess your BP based on population averages for your self-rated exercise level, height, age and weight? no thanks, i wouldn’t trust a garmin index product for anything with real health implications About the Garmin index BPM I think it could integrate more features to differentiate from all the current products(Withings, Omron..). I’m one of those who have been using the ciq before measuring my BP. Simple but effective. The Garmin Index BMP is a clinically validated medical device that the FDA has cleared. The FDA divides medical devices that hit the market into three classes: So far, I have been using it for 2 weeks and get consistent results (similar day on day, no massive deltas).

It would also be useful to have guides to optimal values for athletes, so users don't have to look up a chart online. Garmin’s sleek, and smart BP monitor is lightweight and easy to use. Neat features of the Index BPM smart blood pressure monitor include: Many smart devices are not as clever as they purport to be, but the Index BPM pairs easily with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Syncing with the Garmin Connect app may be a little hit-and-miss, but you’ll soon get the hang of it. It’s great to know that you can sync via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth especially if you are using the cuff in a location where is no Wi-Fi. Garmin is a trusted name in the health and fitness industry, and we are excited to introduce the FDA-cleared Index BPM as another tool to stay on top of your health,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “When using the Index BPM as part of the larger Garmin ecosystem, all of your health and fitness data can be viewed right in Garmin Connect ™, helping to give you a more complete look at your overall health in one app.” Sit at a table or chair where your arm is supported level with your heart, or get someone to support your arm.In fact, medics have now learned that the trend in your blood pressure profile is more important than an individual one-off reading for making an accurate assessment of your health. This has led to a massive rise in home monitoring and, of course, demand for simple portable blood pressure monitors. Those with the functionality will notice that a section for blood pressure has been added to the Health section in the Garmin Connect app. In addition to daily readings, users can look at data over the past week, month or year. These time periods are actually no different to those that apply to other stats in the Connect smartphone app. If you need to undergo routine blood pressure monitoring, waiting it out at the clinic for nurse appointments is no fun. Not only are appointments time out of your day, but you also risk having excessively high blood pressure readings because of “white-coat” hypertension.

Garmin has finally started allowing users to manually enter blood pressure readings in the Connect app – without the need for the Index BPM. The rollout seems to be gradual and limited currently only to the Android smartphone app. Off topic but this could be a hint of a near future new Garmin Varia vision( or glasses).

Probable Features

You have to sit still, movement will make the meassurement inaccurate. This is because the BP is meassured with an accelerometer sensor. Elevated blood pressure has a systolic BP of between 120 and 129 mm Hg and a diastolic blood pressure of 80 mmHg or less. 120 – 129/80

Sorry about Safari. I have probs with the comments pluginS. whichever i choose causes a problem somewhere. Users have also compared the Index BPM to other brands like Omron and have found it to be close to other devices. If you are looking for any insights or interpretations of the data, Garmin wisely steers clear. The Index BPM manual simply reproduces the basic guidance from the American Heart Association.Garmin is probably due to refresh the Index Smart Scale as the S2 model that I have was always in need of some love even though it was only released just over 2 years ago. So it was a bit of a surprise to see that instead, Garmin could be entering Blood Pressure measurements for the first time. Whilst this product is linked to fitness, the biggest number of buyers by far will be in the general wellness space. If they release a upper arm cuff and advice to use the widget, the quality of the data should be quite high.
