Jul 06, 2012 15:23
If you're into gadgets that keep tabs on your health, then the LifeWatch V is right up your alley.
This Android-based smartphone is fitted with a series of sensors around the peimeter, letting you perform various medical tests in between checking Facebook and your email. Simply by holding the device your hands and ensuring the fingers are touching the sensors, you can perform various health tests like monitoring your ECG, stress levels, heart rate, body fat, and temperature. For diabetics, an additional kit with test strips and a needle transforms this device into a blood glucose monitor that keeps track of blood sugar levels.
Obviously, devices like these are usually far less accurate when compared to dedicated hospital equipment so you'll still need to keep up with your regular doctor visits. But with full data connectivity it means you can keep your medical practitioner abreast of your condition between checkups. Check out the clip below for more info:
