Phillips outs a medically-accurate smartwatch with 4-day battery life
The $250 wearable tracks the user's heart rate and additional metrics of one's cardiological status, in addition to overall activity, sleep quality, and other measurable data. It's integrated with the Phillips HealthSuite health app to provide personalized health guidance.
The wearable outputs clinically validated dataLikewise, the optical heart rate sensor checks your heart rate and heart rate zones, automatically estimating resting heart rate and recovery. You can trust it to output quality data, as the Phillips Health watch is designed as a medical device, with the accuracy of its measurements and algorithms validated clinically.
With an always-on display and up to 4 days of battery life, Philips' medically accurate watch is compatible with Android and iOS phones. It also accomplishes fast charging, receiving up to 70% charge in just 30 minutes on the juicer. The watch is water resistant, splash, and rain-proof.
We like how Philips doesn't try to please everyone with its smart watch. Rather, it positioned the wearable towards a specific, health-conscious customer looking for a medically proficient device, rather than a fancy-looking smartwatch with apps. It's a smart tactic of infiltrating the risky and crowded, but growing market for wearables.
