Has to be accurate to work. But could be a game changer.
Sure, i won't ever go to a doctor from now on. It will definitely cure cancer with an update.

And chances are that you're going to re-measure with a manual manometer. I see this as a big plus for a "quick glance" measurement. Having a 5-10% inaccuracy doesn't bother me at all, as long as people are aware that the device isn't accurate, and should be double-checked.
This is great I think smartwatches should be become healthwatches with notifications being second thing
And I bet then again, some people will say "Samsung isn't innovative"...
But - this is definitley step in right direction from Samsung!
As such digital manometers have a huge margin of error.. Only icu multimonitors can accurately measure bp.. I really don't see the need for bp to be checked by a watch.. Heart rate is another thing.. Its useful for exercise monitoring.. Now if the new tech is actually accurate.. I expect Samsung to sell it as medical tech in place of invasive monitors
As much as i am not a Samsung guy, i dig this. If they can refine and perfect it this will be absolutely amazing.
This is actually pretty nifty. Will likely be picking one up if it's as accurate as an aneroid.
Even if this has a tolerance of 10% per reading i'm buying at least 2 for may parents and maybe even myself

Stondec100, 15 Feb 2018This sounds awesome. I hope the implementation works as reliably as good BP cuffs. Same thoughts!

take it or leave it.

This is a big thing. Bp is very difficult to measure on a smartwatch. This would make a smartwatch a truly useful health monitor. I would buy it just to monitor bp over a working week.
This looks revolutionary as smart watches with proper app/firmware could become very serrious health even life saving devices
