I took my blood pressure with a smartwatch and I want to do it again

With virtually no sound but considerable wrist pressure, the Huawei Watch D measured my blood pressure as I sat at a booth at IFA 2022 in Berlin. That’s all, just some wearable technology performing a function typically unique to those handcuffs you use in the doctor’s office. It felt kind of uncomfortable and impossible.

Huawei introduced the Huwaei Watch D in May, but only recently managed (or is very close) to European approval for its use as a healthcare device. However, there is no information on the US FDA, and with Huawei’s limited profile in the states, I don’t expect that to happen anytime soon. Earlier this year, no one was able to test it, but with regulatory approval pending, Huawei was ready to let me and others at the show test the new smartwatch technology.
