The Withings Blood Pressure Monitor has been awarded the iF Product Design Award

We are very proud to announce that the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor have been chosen by the International Forum Design to receive the iF product design award 2012. The iF product design award was introduced in 1954 and rewards products that distinguish themselves by their design, their ergonomics, their functionality, and their degree of innovation.

This award validates our vision for connected healthcare design. We believe connected health devices should be as easy to use possible, because they are meant to be used frequently by their owners, and they simply won’t be if they are too obtrusive or too bothersome to operate. We believe also that since they are used at home, their design should be pleasing to the eye and home-friendly.

Of course this is the opinion of the experts and we all know they can be wrong sometimes. What do you think about the design of Withings devices? Do you have any suggestion for improvement?
