  • “When using the Index BPM as part of the larger Garmin ecosystem, all of your health and fitness data can be viewed right in Garmin Connect™, helping to give you a more complete look at your overall health in one app.

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NYSE: GRMN), today announced the Index BPM, its first smart blood pressure monitor that lets users measure and track systolic and diastolic blood pressure at home or on the go.1 The compact, all-in-one upper arm blood pressure monitor features an integrated display so readings can be viewed immediately after they’re taken.

“Garmin is a trusted name in the health and fitness industry, and we are excited to introduce the FDA-cleared Index BPM as another tool to stay on top of your health,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “When using the Index BPM as part of the larger Garmin ecosystem, all of your health and fitness data can be viewed right in Garmin Connect™, helping to give you a more complete look at your overall health in one app.”

Delivering accurate blood pressure and heart rate readings when used correctly, the Index BPM can be used as a stand-alone device and includes an integrated display to quickly view measurements. Additionally, users can use Wi-Fi® technology to sync their Index BPM blood pressure readings to Garmin Connect. Through the Garmin Connect app, users can also view their measurement history and trends alongside other health stats, set up reminders to take their blood pressure and view those readings in 7-day, 4-week and 1-year reports. The reports can even be exported as a PDF to be shared with a health care provider.

Featuring an adjustable cuff, the Index BPM is made to fit a wide range of arm sizes – from 9-17 inches (22-42 cm) in circumference. What’s more, up to 16 users can keep track of their individual readings from the Index BPM and sync the data to their own Garmin Connect account.

The Index BPM has a battery life of up to 9 months and comes with four AAA batteries that can easily be replaced when necessary. Available now on garmin.com, the Index BPM has a suggested retail price of $149.99. It can also be purchased using Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) funds.

Engineered on the inside for life on the outside, Garmin products have revolutionized the wellness industry. Committed to developing wearables and health measurement tools that help people of all activity levels lead healthier lives, Garmin believes every day is an opportunity to innovate and a chance to beat yesterday.
