Withings' BeamO: The Must-Have Health Gadget of CES 2024

Withings

Withings is known for producing high-quality smart gadgets that monitor vital signs such as blood pressure, weight, and other health-related factors, enabling you to lead a healthy lifestyle. The business has now unveiled an upgraded 4-in-1 "multiscope" at CES 2024 that can assess numerous vital parameters simultaneously.

The Withings BeamO is a new, palm-sized gadget that combines a thermometer, oximeter, stethoscope, and electrocardiogram (ECG) so you can monitor not only your body temperature but also the condition of your heart and lungs.

Body temperature used to be the sole health scan that was regularly performed at home. BeamO will transform the way that essential vital signs are measured during doctor appointments, allowing patients to remain in the comfort of their own homes. As stated in the press release today, "This important data will give a vital overview of overall health or warning signs of potential areas of concern." √Čric Carreel is the president and creator of Withings.

The ‘thermometer of the future’

With BeamO, Withings hopes to enable customers to monitor these vital indicators more frequently at home, instead of only once a year during visits to their physician or other healthcare provider.

BeamO, as its name suggests, is a wearable that measures blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate, and temperature using light wave sensors and acoustic data. It does this by using a single-lead ECG, which is akin to the one found on more expensive smartwatches like the Apple Watch.

To begin these measures, users just need to gently hold BeamO; the results will be shown immediately on its color LED panel.

BeamO uses a noninvasive infrared scan of the temporal artery to monitor core body temperatures, building on the Thermo sensor technology from Withings. The second-generation sensor's improved mono-element thermophile, which employs a more concentrated infrared beam, enables contactless readings.

BeamO also includes a digital stethoscope, which records noises from the chest or back to assess the heart and lungs precisely. To assist users in positioning the device correctly, a series of user-friendly lessons are offered. Additionally, a USB-C connector enables users to hear the findings or transmit audio to a healthcare specialist who may provide guidance on placement to concentrate on certain areas of interest.

Withings claims that in less than a minute, BeamO will be able to assess your body temperature, heart health, and lung health and notify you of any problems, including fevers, infections, atrial fibrillation, and more.

As anticipated, BeamO's health data can be synchronized with the Withings app via Wi-Fi. This will enable new features to be added to BeamO to facilitate the tracking of these health metrics, such as the tutorials mentioned earlier and an easily comprehensible history of health readings for non-health professionals.

The FDA must still approve BeamO before it can be distributed or sold in the United States, which is why Withings has not yet disclosed the product's release date or price.
