Designed to help consumers spot habits they might have in their daily routine that could be wreaking havoc on their health, the Philips Health Watch features a bevy of sensors to keep wearers in the know.

Aside from allowing comprehensive tracking of one's heart rate, the Philips Health Watch also measures your level of activity and how you're sleeping. The data that the Philips Health Watch measures is uploaded to the cloud for interaction via the Philips HealthSuite app, which can be shared with healthcare professionals to help correct problems or devise health lifestyle action plans.

As more consumers look to wearables for relief from problems or the development of them, the Philips Health Watch is a step in a direction towards prevention rather than dealing with symptoms.
