CES 2019 Healthcare Wearable: Withings Move ECG Analog Watch

Withings ads ECG function to its analog smartwatch.

As expected, more smartwatches add ECG functionality at the CES 2019. Apple introduced this feature last year and in 2019 many more wrist wearables will add electrocardiogram features. The Withings Move ECG is the first analog watch with ECG functionality and it will be very affordable. The Withings Move ECG will be released in Q2 of 2019 for $129.95.

Withings' Move ECG brings a new level of heart monitoring to the traditional analog watch with its ability to take an electrocardiogram on-demand to help detect AFib, the most common heart arrhythmia. AFib is a serious form of irregular heart rhythm that can lead to fatigue, shortness of breath and heart failure. It is also known to be a major risk for stroke.

Move ECG includes three electrodes to ensure measurement accuracy. Two electrodes are discreetly integrated inside the main body of the watch, and the third electrode is in the stainless steel bezel of the watch. When users experience symptoms such as palpitation, they simply need to touch both sides of the bezel to start recording anytime and anywhere. After less than 30 seconds of measurement, Move ECG vibrates to notify users that the reading is complete. It then syncs automatically with the Health Mate app, which displays whether the heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether there are signs of AFib.

At the CES 2019, wearables compete with many other technologies. A few weeks later is a much more focused conference and expo in Germany that is only about wearables and related technologies. The Wearable Technologies 2019 Europe will kick off Feb. 3, 2019. I4U News readers get a 20% discount on tickets for the WT Wearable Technologies Conference 2019 with code WT_i4u.
