Find your Zen with Tinke health monitor Video Transcript
-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET here at the press preview for the big CES show and the product here caught our eye. It's an Apple accessory that is called the Tinke. It not only measures your blood pressure by simply putting your thumb on a sensor, but also measures your breathing rate and the oxygen levels in your blood. It's gonna be at $99 when it comes out at the end of the month. Now, right now, the Tinke is attached to an Apple Lightning connector port, but also work with several Apple devices, and once you plug it in, the light sensor is able to measure these things like heart rate and breathing rate and oxygen levels based on how my pressure you're putting on and how the lightning reflects through the skin. It measures your blood. Kind of strange how light can do that. The only thing is that it can be a little sensitive if there's bright light around so you might have to go in an area without a direct light overhead. Once you take your measurement, you get a score out of 99 to see how you're doing. It kind of evaluates higher doing overall. I passed with a savvy stock here, so I guess I have room for improvement, but I could then show my score Facebook if I want, so I'm gonna let everyone know how I'm doing or I could see how my friends are doing if they also have this. This is also mode in here present, so I could work on my breathing levels, so I can learn how to be a little more calm and stressful situations. This is just one of the many health-related products will be seen at CES this year. Expect to see more accessories for Apple devices. The android version of this though may be coming out in 2 to 3 months. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey.
