The Huawei Watch D, according to Edy Supartono, Training Director of Huawei Device Indonesia, was the first health smartwatch to include True Blood Pressure, ECG, and All-Day Health Monitoring.
"These features are present as a solution to prevent and monitor various diseases, including hypertension," Edy explained virtually to the media crew on Monday (29/8).
According to the Basic Health Research (Riskesdas 2018), the prevalence of hypertension in Indonesia has increased by 8.3% since 2013. Based on this information, it is estimated that only one-third of cases are diagnosed in Indonesia.
On that basis, the Huawei Watch D includes a high-resolution pressure sensor, a feedback pressure control circuit, and a low-flow air duct, which ensures the accuracy of the blood pressure measurement system with a margin of error of 3mmHg, which is comparable to digital blood pressure measurement tools on the market today.
"Unlike other smartwatches that use a slot for the hook, the Huawei Watch D uses a high-strength butterfly clasp with very strong locking so that the results do not change when measuring blood pressure," he explained.
Edy also mentioned that the Huawei Watch D has comprehensive health monitoring capabilities, including SpO2, sleep, and stress monitoring, as well as skin temperature detection. With normal use, the battery life of this smartwatch is 7 days.
Dr. Vito Damay, a heart and blood vessel specialist, also attended the launch event. He agrees that the Huawei Watch D is comparable to a medical-grade blood pressure measuring device. Furthermore, the results of blood pressure measurements may vary in the near future, necessitating the use of a device that can measure continuously and automatically.
"This smartwatch can help people avoid becoming hypertensive and taking medication. It also aids doctors in their examinations "Vito stated.
