New iHealth products:
The iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter, which is recommended for sports and recreational use, measures two important stats: it records oxygen levels in the blood (SpO2), which muscles need when exercising. The device also measures pulse rate (bpm). Both measurements are taken non-invasively at the fingertip and display on an easy-to-read LED screen. Results also sync automatically to the "iHealth SpO2" app on iOS devices.
The iHealth Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker (the iHealth Tracker) measures daily activities, including sleep. Designed to help users keep motivated toward an active and healthy lifestyle, the iHealth Tracker records steps taken, distance traveled, and calories burned. It also tracks hours slept and sleep efficiency. The iHealth Tracker features vibrating silent alarms for sleep and activity, and comes with interchangeable wristbands and waist clips available in two colors. All data syncs automatically to the "iHealth MyVitals" app.
Availability and Price
The iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter ($69.99) and Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker ($59.99) are available for purchase at www.ihealthlabs.com and national retailers.
