Intelligent Planet Introduces ExMedicus Smartwatch

November 2, 2018 — Digital health company Planet Intelligent recently launched the ExMedicus Smartwatch, what it calls the world’s first health smartwatch with biometric technology that monitors overall health, heart health and physical wellness.

The ExMedicus Smartwatch comes complete with biotechnology features that can detect potentially fatal cardiovascular conditions. Incorporating data such as heart rate, blood pressure and variability in heart rhythm, it places the wearer firmly in control of their health. The device features integrated

ExMedicus Smartwatch is the world’s first health smartwatch with integrated photoplethysmogram (PPG), electrocardiogram (ECG), pulse wave transmit time (PWTT) and 512 Hz real medical raw data.

Planet Intelligent said the ExMedicus Smartwatch can monitor:

  • Heart rate;
  • Blood pressure;
  • ECG;
  • Sleep duration and quality;
  • Resting heart rate;
  • Activity;
  • Exercise;
  • Steps;
  • Active calorie burn;
  • Stress;
  • Fatigue index; and
  • Health index score.

ECG waveforms and health data can also be downloaded from the ExMedicus mobile app and sent to the doctor for further analysis.

The device provides on-board biodata including pulse, blood pressure, heart rate variability and electrocardiogram waveform with the physiological analytics. ExMedicus translates the raw biodata to meaningful and comprehensive insights.

This advanced health smartwatch connects wirelessly by Bluetooth and communicates with the company’s mobile app on iPhone or Android smartphones. The smartwatch’s medical algorithm sends notifications and early warnings to the mobile app on a user’s phone about possible stroke, sudden death or stoppage of breathing on the basis of gathered data so that users can take action and prevent early deaths. Also, the user’s arterial stiffness data is generated with the blood pressure measurement.

ExMedicus sends heart rate data every 60 minutes to the mobile app on the user's phone automatically. Thanks to biometric chip technology, the device is also able to detect abnormal heart rhythm or atrial fibrillation in real time — crucial for stroke prevention.
