Get your pulse racing with the iHealth Track blood pressure monitor

Keep an eye on your blood pressure with this simple smart health gadget.

BERLIN -- Green is good with the iHealth Track blood pressure monitor.

Aimed at pharmacists and healthcare professionals, the new device boasts a handy screen that lights up green or red depending on how your heart is doing.

It's great being able to use your phone or tablet wherever you go, and that goes for clinicians too. Various healthcare monitors are hitting the market that simply plug into a phone or tablet so doctors can record and track your health over time.

The Track is a digital blood-pressure monitor that plugs into a phone or tablet. The small box attaches to a cuff that you put around your arm to record your blood pressure.

The results are captured by the Track, and the screen lights up green when everything is normal, or red if there's a problem.

The Track will memorise up to 60 measurements until it's synced with a phone or tablet. Once synced with an Apple or Android device, the app shows you your blood pressure over time to track your progress or share with your doctor.

The Track can recommend the best time of day for you to take your blood pressure, or you can program it to take blood pressure according to the "rule of three", which suggests blood pressure is taken three times in the morning and three times at night for three days to get a meaningful average.

The iHealth Track will cost 40 euros, which works out to roughly $45, £30 or AU$65.
