Announced at CES 2019, Withings’ two new health devices are bringing ECG to the mainstream consumers.

The Withings BPM Core is a 3-in-1 device that can measure blood pressure, ECGs and be used as a stethoscope. While ECG can help to identify atrial fibrillation (AFib), the digital stethoscope can provide early detection of valvular heart disease. 

All three features can be conducted in one sitting which take about 90 seconds or be used independently. The BPM Core uses a rechargeable battery that can fuel up via micro-USB.  It will be priced at US$250 and is currently under review by FDA and CE.

Dubbed as the world’s first analog smartwatch with ECG function, the Withings Move ECG has three electrodes to take ECGs. The third electrode is actually integrated into the bezel of the smartwatch. 

The Move ECG also boasts up to 12 months of battery life, sleep tracking and water resistance up to 50m. Like the BPM Core, the Move ECG is currently under review by the FDA and CE. It will go on sale in Q2 2019 with a price tag of US$130.
