Sensoria Fitness, the company that is popular for its Artificial Intelligence Smart wear products is ready to launch a new version of its Fitness tracker, Sensoria Smart Band.
Recently, Sensoria’s new Smart Band received its FCC approval.
Although the tracker is explicitly marked as a non-medical device, it brings many health monitoring features to the table.

Sensoria leads the way in personalized health monitoring with its Sensoria Smart Band
Sensoria is the company that became popular with its Smart Socks, way back in 2016, and has slowly introduced new products over the years in the area of smart fabrics.
The company’s founder David Vigano used to lead a $14 billion dollar business at Microsoft before starting up Sensoria.
The company’s latest Sensoria Smart Band allows for the following health monitoring features:
- Body Temperature monitoring
- Heart Rate monitoring
- Sleep Monitoring
- SpO2 Blood Oxygen Level monitoring
- Blood Pressure monitoring (see below)
How Sensoria’s Smart Band monitors blood pressure
Using the built-in app on the tracker, users can get a calculated value for their systolic and diastolic blood pressure values.
“From the “health” interface, long-press the touch panel to enter, then choose the Blood Pressure Mode by tapping the touch panel. Please keep the arm still until the measurement is completed.”
It appears that the unit uses the heart rate sensors on the back of the fitness tracker to compute the pulse rate variation and then uses that to estimate blood pressure values.
It’s important to note that Sensoria’s Smart Band has not received FDA approval as a medical device.
The product description on their site however does not mention the blood pressure measurement feature.
Any data collected by your band is for your reference to track your health metrics–it should not be used as a diagnostic tool or a substitute for medical professionals and/or approved medical devices.
Sensoria’s Smart Band other features
Similar to other fitness trackers, the Sensoria Smart Band supports numerous sporting activities and allows for engaging with notifications from your mobile device.
- *8+ exercise modes including table tennis and badminton along with the usual running, walking, cycling, and so forth. The activity includes a pedometer to monitor steps
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Efficient power usage (5-7 days of usage)
- A companion app for Android and Apple devices
- IP67 waterproof capability
The Sensoria Smart Band retails for $69.00 and is available now according to their site.
With so many new and affordable fitness trackers now estimating both SpO2 and Blood Pressure, it’s important to stay cautious around using the results for monitoring health, especially if you suffer from cardiac, lung, and other chronic health issues.
Many of the new and lower-priced fitness trackers have not undergone any major health studies with a decent sample size, so the accuracy of these trackers cannot be ascertained.
