We know more about the next connected watch from Huawei, and it already promises very high end.
More and more intelligent, connected watches have for several years now found their place on our wrists. They are not yet replacing our smartphones (even if Samsung is working on it with a retractable screen concept), but represent a major ally on a daily basis, especially for monitoring activity and health. Among the slew of tools now accessible, we find in particular SpO2 sensors (for the rate of oxygenation of the blood), heart and ECG sensors, or even the Fitbit AED scan, which measures stress through micro changes. temperature on the skin. However, there is one measure that no mainstream watch has yet dared to calculate directly, it is the blood pressure.
The first (real) pocket blood pressure monitor?
A situation that could well change with Huawei. The Chinese firm has leaked a preview of its next Huawei Watch D smartwatch on Weibo, the Chinese Twitter. If we are to believe the information reported by Slashgear, the watch could thus be the first of its kind. Currently, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Watch 3 already claim blood pressure calculation. However, this is not a direct measurement, but rather an estimate based on other biometric signals, which is then compared to a reference measurement.
It must be said that if measuring the tension of a person is not a very complicated act in itself, it requires – to be precise – to stop the flow of blood with an inflatable cuff. A device that would have a hard time finding its place on a connected watch. Without more information at the moment, the rumor that Huawei has managed to get around this problem could emerge as a small technical revolution.
