The first on this segment is, Scanadu Scout, which is a mini device which the user can keep against his temple, to measure vital signs such as heart rate, pulse transit time, electrical heart activity, temperature, heart rate variability and blood oxygenation. The readings are out in just 10 seconds which is sent to a Scanadu smartphone app via Bluetooth.

The Scout, which is priced less than $150, will help people in collecting data about themselves easily without the need to go to a doctor's office. Further, since the application saves the data, people can actually check out and analyze how their health is changing or improving over time .
