The giant in Healthcare technology, Phillips now puts to the market a new variety of products. As the Phillips is an established name in the business, the launch is no big surprise.
Phillips, this time, enters the market with five new connected healthcare gadgets. These health devices would track the various health parameters of the users. The new products would work in sync with the Phillips Healthsuite App. The app currently is available for Android as well as iOS.
The Phillips suite includes a health watch ($250), a body analysis scale ($100), an ear thermometer ($60), an upper arm blood pressure monitor ($100), and a wrist blood pressure monitor ($90). All the devices well suit the home use.
The watch has an always on display and Gorilla Glass protection. It's claimed to have a battery life of 4-days. It can be charged up to 70 percent in 30 minutes. The watch also is water-resistant up to 1 atm pressure.
The watch can track the user's body parameters. It observes the activities, heart rates, and even the sleep patterns. The watch lacks a touch screen to display the phone notifications. The watch lacks some features that most smart watches provide. The company says the watch is only for the health-tracking purposes.
The blood pressure monitor can gauge diastolic and systolic blood pressures. It also can measure the heart rate. It has two available versions for wrist and arm. Their respective prices would be $89.99 and $99.99.
The company says it does not owe to the world of fitness, and this is not our mission. We cannot add value to the healthcare field. We are into the connected healthcare, and there we won't leave anything untouched. We aim to help the customers at the risk of chronic diseases.
According to the features and specifications, there is nothing new or remarkable. But the USP of the products would be the FDA listing of these. The listing makes these devices more credible than others. The less trendy users who get the gadget advice from doctors would turn their heads to these.
The product lineup does not have any super innovative feature. Nor it has grand designs. It also doesn't have attractive prices. But what it has is the credibility of the brand. Phillips is a reputed and credible brand in the business. Its reputation and experience can surely help it in markets.
