IRVINE, Calif. and SYDNEY, March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobvoi Inc., a leading artificial intelligence-wearable company backed by Google™ and Volkswagen, in partnership with global health tech company CardieX, today announces the launch of its first heart health monitoring smartwatch, the TicWatch GTH Pro. The TicWatch GTH Pro is the result of a two-year partnership between the companies to develop a consumer smartwatch featuring CardieX subsidiary ATCOR's proprietary technology that measures central arterial waveforms, which are pressure waves based on the strength of the pulse as blood flows through the body. The smartwatch leverages key aspects of ATCOR's SphygmoCor® technology, a gold-standard noninvasive measurement modality that has attained FDA clearance and strong recognition among hospitals as well as pharmaceutical companies developing therapies for hypertension and heart failure.
The TicWatch GTH Pro is the first smartwatch to feature ATCOR's patented heart health monitoring technology. The watch also utilizes unique dual PPG sensors to provide insights into general and arterial health through high-fidelity sensing points that track both from the wrist and through the finger. The data gathered from the watch appears on the Mobvoi app which compiles the metrics into five key points of analysis. Combined with Mobvoi's smartwatch technology, ATCOR's heart health metrics give users easy-to-understand insights into their overall wellness and cardiovascular health and include:
- Arty® Score – A general score of overall heart and arterial health based on proprietary heart health metrics;
- eCAP® – (Exercise Capacity®) – a measure of blood flow to the heart;
- ArtyAge™ – an estimated "age" of the arteries based on arterial stiffness;
- HSX™ (Heart Stress Index) – a measure of stress on the heart; and
- TruHR® – a highly accurate heart rate measurement similar to that of an electrocardiogram.
Craig Cooper, CEO of CardieX and ATCOR commented:
"Along with our partners at Mobvoi I'm excited to finally announce the official launch and availability of the TicWatch GTH Pro.
This is the first integration of our market leading SphygmoCor® heart health technology into a wearable device and has been the result of a significant two-year collaboration with Mobvoi.
Our Arty Heart Health platform incorporates never-before-seen arterial biometrics and heart health insights based on the 20-year legacy of our ATCOR subsidiary in partnering with global research organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and leading clinical practices in the delivery of advanced arterial health diagnostics. It's this same trusted, clinical-grade technology that we are now incorporating into a series of new consumer wearables and home health devices.
Cardiovascular disease remains the world's number one killer. It's our vision and mission to provide advanced heart health metrics into the hands of consumers, so that they may have better tools and insights to manage and prevent disease. Ultimately, the more accurate the data you have, the more informed you are to make decisions about your health"
The TicWatch GTH Pro is a sleek health expert that can be worn on the wrist. Its unique dual PPG sensors capture high-fidelity signals to produce arterial health biometrics that cannot be measured by traditional wrist-based sensors. By lightly touching your fingertip on the sensor located on the side of the watch arterial waveforms are measured, providing valuable personalized insights that are unique to the user's own cardiovascular system - something that has never been seen before in non-medical wearable devices. Users have precise heart health data right at their fingertips, enabling quick access to trends, alerts, actionable insights, and personalized heart health data. Available for iOS and Android users, the Arty dashboard on the Mobvoi app shares these insights, such as an overall Arty® Score, TruHR® (clinical-grade heart rate measurement), eCap® (measurement of "exercise capacity" based on the heart's ability to perform during exercise), HSX™ (measurement of heart stress based on pulse pressure), and ArtyAge™ (measurement of "arterial age") - altogether enabling users to better understand their heart health and meet their health goals over time. Additionally, the TicWatch GTH Pro encourages users to engage with their heart health daily, develop healthier lifestyle habits, and see the impact on their overall health over time. With about two hours of charging time, the battery life on the TicWatch GTH Pro is 7-10 days, which is significantly more than the Apple Watch battery life of 18 hours.
"With the decrease of health that we saw in the past two years from the pandemic, heart health remains a top issue for healthcare providers" said Carol Wu, Vice President of Mobvoi. "Partnering with CardieX to introduce state-of-the-art heart health monitoring technology to our line of TicWatches is one way to achieve our mission of providing innovative and modern ways to track health and look good doing it."
