This Futuristic Blood Pressure Cuff Suggested All My Coworkers Are Dying

High blood pressure: According to Blood Pressure UK, one in three British adults has it. A Google search will tell you it’s the silent killer and can lead to strokes, heart attacks, heart failure, and kidney disease. It’s also not the most convenient thing to keep track of outside the doctor’s office. Manual kits require you to stuff your arm into a cuff and use a stethoscope and your fallible human ears to determine your systolic and diastolic readings. Electronic cuffs are handier, but require you to write down your readings. The Withings BPM Core is a sleek, automatic cuff that’s meant to simplify the home blood pressure monitoring process via a handy app, while also letting you check in on your ECG and valvular health, and it’s pretty sure my coworkers are dying.

Nokia Screws Up Again, Sells Withings Back to Its Co-founder

Another day, another company snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. This time it’s Nokia, as the company has decided to sell its health division— formerly known as Withings—which it purchased for $191 million in 2016.
