We live in a very stressful age. Almost everyone, everywhere is feeling the recession, we have to work longer before we can get anywhere near a relaxing environment, and if you want a fast paced career you should expect to put in extra hours everyday over the coming years.
So it should be no surprise that most of us are stressed and suffering because of it. One of the most common resulting factors of stress is increased blood pressure, which can lead to other problems if left untreated.
If you suffer with this problem, don’t despair, we have the technology. Thanks to Withings, you don’t need to wait for hours to see your GP just to keep a check on your blood pressure, you can look after it yourself and via your iOS device.
If you have an iPod, iPhone or iPad you can use the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor, along with its compatible app to measure your systolic and diastolic blood pressure and your pulse rate. The app will also keep track of your readings, so that you can see if you are maintaining a healthy range or slipping into the danger zone.
The results are even compiled into easy to read charts that allow you to notice spikes and trends in your readings. If you want to see even more options, you can upload your results to Google Health, which will compare them to guideline blood pressure figures. At £107.99 it isn’t cheap, but can you really put a price on your health?
