Withings, makers of the popular WiFi-enabled scale that streams a user’s weight directly to a personal dashboard and connects with Google Health, is continuing to innovate in the area of personal health with the release of a blood pressure cuff and associated app designed to plug into Apple’s suite of mobile devices – the iPhone, iPad and iPod. Once connected, the cuff takes an individual’s blood pressure readings and charts them on a graph, providing relevant context on how to interpret the numbers based on data supplied by the World Health Organization. It can also save a person’s information to create an historical archive and send it to cloud-based health and wellness platforms such as Google Health and Microsoft Health Vault. The user-friendly device currently retails for $129.
