In this edition of my series about wearable health trackers that I use, I have already described Tinké, AliveCor, Pebble, Tickr Run and Withings. Now here is a new device from Viatom Technology that I have been testing for some time now.
The team kindly sent me a CheckMe which I have been using to measure my body temperature, ECG, pulse, oxygen saturation and sleep almost on a daily basis. This is the first device I have used which includes so many measurements at once.
It can measure:
- oxygen saturation
- perfusion index
- ECG including QRS distance and regularity
- body temperature
- sleep quality + oxygen saturation
- physical activities
- blood pressure (indirectly)
It gives feedback about the results with a happy or sad smiley indicating whether we should get checked ourselves with a medical professional based on a measurement.
Although the way I have to wear it for measuring sleep quality is not really comfortable, the data it gives me are very much detailed, plus finally I could see how my oxygen saturation changes during the night.
To be honest, there might be prettier devices out there with better background light for the screen, but for me, the fact that I can measure all these vital signs in quite a good quality led to keep on using the device on a daily basis.
I also talk about Viatom in two of my recent videos:
