Blood-pressure monitoring goes mobile
Apple sold 5 million iPhone 5 phones in the first weekend; thus, the new smartphone was available, so the newly compatible iHealth Wireless Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor has a lot of potential. Right now, it’s one of the hottest selling items in the blood-pressure monitor space with more than $137,000 in sales for the 12 weeks ended Aug. 12, up a whopping 45,882.2% across food, drug and mass (excluding Walmart), according to SymphonyIRI Group. The new wrist monitor adds motion sensor technology to increase accuracy. Users can track and share the results of their measurements using the free companion iHealth App for iOS devices.
