A serious approach to connected health from Philips

Boot Camp feature for Monday, October 10, 2016

A serious approach to connected health from Philips.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    From it’s very comfortable new Health Watch…with medical grade heart rate monitoring…to it’s Body Analysis Scale, Ear Thermometer and Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor the approach at Philips towards connected health is pretty straightforward.   The focus is on accuracy and health.   The watch, for instance omits smart phone notifications.   The devices all work with the Philips HealthSuite app.  Personal Health Marketing Director Eline de Graaf…

“You know what’s important about this new suite of products and programs is that they’re developed with leading doctors and psychologists.  And these new devices connect to a HealthSuite Health app, where we use cloud based analytics to measure, monitor and motivate sustainable behavior change.”

The Health Watch at 250 dollars is the most expensive of the devices…with the Body Analysis Scale priced at about 100 dollars.  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
