Google Developing Wristband to Replace Doctors


Not to be outdone by Apple, Google is developing its own watch. Only this one will tell you your blood pressure, heart rate, and other things instead of the time.

The company gave the scoop to Bloomberg about its experimental device. Coming from Google’s Google X research division, the new wrist band will also rate skin temperature and environmental information like light exposure and noise levels.

Andy Conrad, head of the life sciences team at Google, told Bloomberg, “Our intended use is for this to become a medical device that’s prescribed to patients or used for clinical trials.”

Don’t expect to get rid of your doctor just yet. The device is intended for use with doctors so that they can monitor their patients.
