Wearables like the Apple Watch can take 30-second snapshots of heart activity, but Biotricity founder and CEO Waqaas Al-Siddiq thinks people with heart conditions or risk factors might want a more capable device. Strap Bioheart onto your chest during exercise, sleep, and other activities to capture what Al-Siddiq calls "clinical grade data," feeding info to the companion smartphone app. No prescription is needed, and it can run for 48 hours on a charge ($199, plus $7/month for more than 30 days of data storage). While it can't alert doctors in real-time to problems, its data can inform cardiologists' diagnoses.
