Zepp Health has announced a new function for its popular Amazfit wearables at its 2021 Next Beat Future of Health conference, which it calls "Blood Pressure Measurement on the Wrist". It is based on an algorithm that estimates this metric using a given wearable's optical sensors.

Zepp Health has unveiled a number of new products at its 2021 Next Beat Future of Health conference, not the least are an upgraded OS and processor, if not the new heart-rate-sensing TWS earbuds mentioned earlier. However, it did have a new form of health-tracking to offer its users.

Some wearables from competing OEMs also support the advanced feature of blood pressure monitoring; however, Zepp Health claims that, unlike those smartwatches, it does not require calbration using external, more dedicated, hardware.

Instead, the new metrics are delivered by applying the OEM's new PumpBeats algorithm to the data feeding in via a wearable's optical sensors. Zepp Health claims that it has been found capable of detecting variations of under 5.14mmHg and 4.88mmHg in systolic and diastolic pressure respectively during its development at a Chinese university hospital.

On the other hand, this makes it a more or less indirect way of blood pressure-sensing. Zepp Health has announced that the new PumpBeats system will start to become available on Amazfit devices from the fourth quarter of 2021.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
