Fitbit study looks into non-cuff blood pressure monitoring

Smartwatches have become portable mini diagnostic centers, in no small part thanks to Apple's push for sensors that keep track of various aspects of the wearer's health. Those sensors have come a long way and are now able to track not just heart rate but also blood oxygen levels, sleep quality, and even ECG.
