“Withing’s latest smartwatch, the ScanWatch, has a one-lead electrocardiogram for checking for arrhythmia, measures blood oxygen levels and can continuously monitor for possible atrial fibrillation. It will also be able to check for sleep apnea,” states cnet.com
Bisu Body Coach
Bisu is a smart urine test. This test tells you about your body and gives you advice. The at-tome urine tests can tell your hydration levels, electrolytes, dietary acid load (through pH levels) and ketones.
About Care Glutrac
“Glutrac promises to test your blood sugar levels without a finger prick — it uses an algorithm instead. The tech is not ready for the US yet, but we could expect to see it in the next few years,” states cnet.com.
Kyocera Smart Carb Monitor
“Kyocera is also working on technology that can also keep tabs on your blood glucose. Unlike Glutrac, this prototype device estimates carbohydrate metabolism by measuring pulse-wave patterns from a user’s heartbeat. Kyocera plans to launch it in Japan this year, and it could eventually make its way to the US,” states cnet.com
This is a small portable AED (atrial defibrillator.) This device can be used at home and is used for sudden cardiac events. It uses AI to alert Emergency services and detect heart rhythm to see if a shock is necessary to save a life.
