Withings starts from a simple observation: hypertension affects around a quarter of the world’s population, and half of the individuals concerned do not know the seriousness of their pathology. With its connected blood pressure monitor, the company wants to democratize home self-measurement. The device is even labeled “CE Medical”.

The ease of use has been worked on: there is only one button on the cuff and all the information is displayed on the Health Mate application available on ios and Android via bluetooth connection. The results are then compared to national standards, the user can even share them with his doctor by email. The connected blood pressure monitor is already available in France on the Withings website.
