Use Apple Watch to check and monitor your blood pressure

You already know how important it is to monitor your blood pressure on a daily basis if you're worried about high blood pressure or have hypertension. If you own an Apple Watch N125,000 ($349 at Amazon), you already have a good starting point for tracking your blood pressure at home.

Daily tracking can help you establish a baseline for your version of "normal," and chart any changes to your levels over time. Work and life stress can cause a spike in your readings, and so can some of the foods you eat. Tracking your blood pressure can also help with early diagnosis and false readings (like if you only have high BP at the doctor's office), and help you keep an eye on the effects of any new blood pressure medication.

While at-home monitoring won't replace a visit to the doctor's office, it can give you the data you need to know when it's time to go in.

The Health app on your Apple Watch is a convenient way to sync your blood pressure data in one place on a device that's always with you.

The smartwatch isn't equipped to measure your blood pressure alone, but there are tools and devices you can pair it with it that can -- usually wireless monitors that connect to your iPhone N 360,000.00 ($1,000 at Best Buy) or Apple Watch and come with an arm cuff and their own app. These devices will automatically sync the data with your Apple Watch's health app.

Here are some ways your Apple Watch can help keep your blood pressure and health in check.
