The new iBeat Heart Watch could save your life

by in News .

A new smartwatch has been launched which could save your life.

The iBeat Heart Watch is designed for people with heart problems and cardiovascular disease. It monitors heart rhythm and rate in real-time and acts as a medical alert system in the event of an emergency.

It has a medical-grade optical heart rate sensor, optimised to use as little energy as possible, to accurately track heart rate. In the event of an emergency, it can call paramedics and emergency services automatically. The watch also has a panic button, which can be pressed if the patient falls or is otherwise having difficulty.

The smartwatch itself is designed to be as easy to use as possible. The operating system is lightweight, and the UI is simple. It’s designed for seniors, so there’s large fonts, contrasting colours and all features are just a few taps away.

iBeat define their smartwatch as a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS), and it’s specifically designed to operate as such. Why would you want a device like this? Well, if you have heart disease or are high risk, it could save your life.

The most recent statistics we have on cardiac arrest show that 326,000 people go into cardiac arrest out of hospital each year. The average survival rate is just 10.6% and the average survival rate with good neurological function is 8.3%. What this means is nearly 90% of people who go into cardiac arrest die. Also, 1 in 3 deaths in the United States are linked to cardiovascular disease - an enormous number.

With such startling statistics, it makes no wonder iBeat has seen demand sky rocket for their new Heart Watch. For just $249.99 (or thereabouts), you can have a medical-grade smartwatch that continually monitors your heart rate. It’s reliable too, with built-in cellular connectivity for making phone calls.

You can find out more about the iBeat Heart Watch at the official website.
