This just in: an activity tracker that could save your life. Sound a little over-the-top? Well, the Withings Move ECG Watch serves triple duty, operating as a watch, fitness tracker, and a go-everywhere Electrocardiogram (ECG).
ECGs can identify cases of atrial fibrillation (aFib), the most common heart rhythm disorder that causes 1/3 of all strokes. AFib can be tough to diagnose, since it often happens irregularly — and not necessarily when you’re at the doctor’s office. With the Withings monitor, you’ll know whenever you have an aFib episode.
The Withings Move is more than just an ECG, though; it’s also a versatile fitness tracker with 50 meters of water resistance that keeps up with your activity, distance traveled, stairs climbed, and calories burned. An integrated GPS connects with your smartphone and the sleek HealthMate app allows you to view your ECG results, activity, and other health info instantly.
And it’s a cool-looking watch.
