Blood pressure-sensing earbuds are coming in 2020
By Scott Stein – CNET (@CNET) – There’s one big health measurement that’s really important, yet keeps eluding wearable tech: blood pressure. I measure my own blood pressure sometimes — I have high blood pressure. I tried Omron’s FDA-cleared inflatable-cuff blood pressure watch, HeartGuide, last year.

Consumerization has very definitely come to dominate the tech landscape. But those of us working in healthcare, while often excited by consumer health developments, have a weirdly distorted view of our place in this tech world.
