Garmin’s new gadget capitalizes on missing smartwatch feature

Better known for its smartwatches and GPS navigators, Garmin is breaking new ground in health monitoring with its first smart blood pressure monitor, the Index BPM.

The first thing you will notice is that the Index BPM (opens in new tab) is much bulkier than a smartwatch, for example. A likely reason for its size is that the device fits around your bicep and gives accurate readings. There are smartwatches that can measure blood pressure (opens in new tab), those that do this with a cuff aren’t widely available, and those that use pulse transit time “need to be calibrated regularly with a traditional home blood pressure monitor,” according to Garmin. Also, according to Garmin, these devices typically can’t “track systolic and diastolic blood pressure,” while Index BPM can.
