Smartron launches ECG, BP monitoring wearable ‘tband’

New Delhi, May 10 : Domestic original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Smartron on Thursday launched its first Electrocardiography (ECG) and Blood Pressure (BP) monitoring wearable device "tband" in India.

Priced at Rs 4,999, "tband" would be available in black colour on Flipkart starting from May 13, the company said in a statement.

"tband" would track the user's "Health Index" score with calorie count, sleeping patterns, stress and fatigue levels using "thehealth" app.

"The 'tband' is made for those who don't just want to track their activity or calorie count but are looking at a holistic health indicator which is highlighted through our Health Index," said Rohit Rathi, President and Co-Founder, Smartron.

The water and dust resistant band that comes with OLED display, 100mAh battery and 4MB memory, is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones.

Apart from ECG and BP monitoring features, "tband" comes with the ability to continuously measure heart rate in general as well as resting heart rate.

Along with basic fitness parameters such as calorie burn, steps and running distance, with sleep tracking, the "tband" highlights sleep patterns and efficiency.

It also helps the user throughout his/her day with customizable alerts for waking up and medicine reminders, DnD option, inactive and SOS alerts, SMS and call notifications.

Smartron is also bringing several health partners, including Talwalkars and Growfitter, on-board to offer a services platform.
