Meet the smart watches that can predict your health problems

Technology Inceptions

Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 in Las Vegas, USA has seen a number of watch-type wearables that can prevent and predict health issues.

IEVA's 500 euro smart watch named Time-C monitors the user's environment, including temperature, humidity, sun exposure, noise and pollution. Linked to an app, it provides personalized beauty creams based on the environment. The product will be available later this year

The ScanWatch from the French company Withings can monitor the user's heart rate and can detect an irregular heartbeat. Thesmart watch can also sense sleep apnea. Starting at $249, ScanWatch will be available in the U.S. and Europe later this year. It is likely to expand to the Asia market.

Omron, maker of blood pressure monitors, has developed a wearable device, the Heart Guide. It looks like a watch. The band around the wrist can inflate and deflate. The user has to raise the wrist next to the heart, and can be used throughout the day. The device also monitors activity level, steps, calories, distance, and tracks sleep.  With a corresponding app, it can send a report of a user's vitals to the doctor by email.
