MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- iHealth Lab, a leading provider of consumer-friendly mobile health devices and apps, today unveiled the iHealth® Ease™ Blood Pressure Monitor (BP3L), a full-featured, FDA-approved blood pressure testing device. With an MSRP of $39.99, advanced app features, and free, unlimited data storage, iHealth Ease makes the most-advanced monitoring technology broadly available to consumers for conveniently tracking and managing high blood pressure—one of the early indicators of cardiovascular disease.  

The iHealth Ease is a blood pressure monitor and cuff solution controlled by MyVitals, iHealth's free app available for smartphones and tablets in the Apple iTunes and Google Play app stores. The iHealth Ease features an innovative "Triple Check" option that measures blood pressure three times and then averages the results to deliver a baseline reading accurate to within three percent for pressure and five percent for pulse. The reading is transferred via Bluetooth® Smart™ technology to the user's secure iHealth account with free HIPAA-compliant data storage space where users can analyze and chart their data using MyVitals, and share this information with a doctor or caregiver.

"Priced under $40 and loaded with advanced features, the app-based iHealth Ease makes traditional, non-connected blood pressure monitors virtually obsolete," said Steve Monnier, vice president of sales and marketing at iHealth. "The Ease breaks new ground making it easier than ever to track, monitor, and share data with your doctor, as part of a management program to improve overall heart health.  We are proud to bring this technology to market at a price affordable for every home."

The Ease is compatible with most Android 4.0+ and Apple iOS7 (or later) devices. The product is available online through Walmart.com, Amazon.com, and BestBuy.com and in retail stores including Best Buy Canada for an MSRP of $39.99.
