Electronics company Withings showed off a new Smart Blood Pressure Monitor, providing users with a wireless product with Google Android compatibility. High blood pressure tends to be overlooked, and can prove to be extremely dangerous - and sometimes easily avoidable - which is what Withings is hoping for in this case. The Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor will be available soon with a $129.95 MSRP.

"At-home monitoring, when done in conjunction with a health care provider, is an important way patients can measure, monitor, and improve their high blood pressure," said Donald Fisher, American Medical Group Associated President and CEO, in a statement. "AMGA and our Foundation look forward to working with our medical groups and Withings to improve patient health and learn more about the effectiveness of home blood pressure monitors."

There is a growing demand for connected medical devices that make it easy to carry out at-home tests - and collect information that can be shared with doctors.
