You can finally keep an eye on your own blood pressure. Connect your Apple Watch to these blood pressure monitors at home.
It’s crucial to monitor your blood pressure regularly, especially if you’re concerned about high blood pressure or have hypertension. Having monitoring tools is essential for this purpose, and if you happen to own an Apple Watch, you’re already in a good position to track your blood pressure at home.
Daily monitoring serves several purposes. Firstly, it helps you establish a baseline for what’s considered “normal” for your blood pressure and allows you to observe any changes in your readings over time. Factors like work-related stress or dietary choices can cause fluctuations in your blood pressure levels. Additionally, consistent tracking aids in early detection and prevents false readings, such as those that might occur only at the doctor’s office. It also enables you to monitor the effectiveness of any newly prescribed blood pressure medication.
While at-home monitoring doesn’t replace the need for doctor visits, it provides valuable data to help you decide when it’s necessary to schedule an appointment.
It’s worth noting that the Apple Watch itself doesn’t have the capability to measure blood pressure independently. However, there are compatible tools and devices available that can perform this task. These devices typically connect wirelessly to your iPhone or Apple Watch and include an arm cuff along with their dedicated app. They automatically sync the collected data with your Apple Watch’s health app.
