Wearable Technology Under Development by Garmin to Help Save Lives!
Garmin is known as a multi-national company that is based on United States, Kansas. Founded in the year 1989, this company focuses on GPS-based technologies for aviation, Automotives as well as sports activities.
Another thing that Garmin specializes in is smartwatches and activity trackers that are consumer-based, such as Apple and Fitbit. And Garmin has been developing an advanced technology that could make a huge difference in the field of human health issue detection. Especially from an early time. Find out more below!
Fitbit: Wearable Technology to Save Lives!
Fitbit is meant to track the activities of a person, the health as well as the critical rates. Based on certain algorithms, the smartwatches have the ability to store a user’s data in it. Such as weight, amount of calories burnt, or how many miles of distance walked.
The notion of using Fitbit smartwatches, is that you will have a friend in your wrist. Always challenging you every minute and helping you get by on a daily life basis.
Additionally, this application is available in devices such as Android, iOS, Mac OS and Windows OS. So if you have a wearable tracker on your wrist, you can easily synchronize it. With the applications on devices via Bluetooth.
Also, you can use the application to track and measure calories without the use of the tracker. However, the rate of accuracy is higher if you have the tracker on working.
Advanced Wearable Technology
It is known that there is advanced technology under development that could possibly save lives. Also, prevent you from health issues by a long margin.
The new generation smartwatches are to monitor the rate of one’s heart to an extent that matches the ability of ECG. The algorithms are supposed to measure heart rates and blood flow during sleep when the range is relatively mild and medium.
In detail, Garmin is working on building a garmin wearable technology that will analyze the pattern of heart rhythms that has a connection with atrial fibrillation and other conditions like sleep apnea.
The upcoming device will be able to accurately get the pattern of heart rhythms as Garmin has integrated an application called Cardiogram. It has an algorithm to detect hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, and atrial fibrillation.
Impact of the Upcoming Wearable Technology
It is known that the upcoming technological functions of this Garmin wearable could possibly be a kickstart for smartwatches. Especially since it has not met with the high ends in the industry of technology.
In the current era, users are more prone to using high-end devices that can not only just count the steps we take but also do much more than that. User’s having medical conditions, regardless of its seriousness, are more likely to use these devices
The wearable device would be helpful to users when treatment needs to be formed, based on its parameters and what it analyses. The interesting fact about this is that it uses the reality of lives instead of using a pre-defined lab environment.
The FDA Approval for Wearable Technology
Needless to say, the FDA approval is yet to make this come true. In order to get through to the world to serve this huge medical advantage, FDA is the checkpoint. Without its approval and certification of clearance, the medical wearable technology would not be able to make a footstep.
Medical analysts such as Tim Bajarin, and more, are supportive of the upcoming technology making the leap. They have faith and are confident that it will make a remarkable difference and help a lot.
