First Nonin direct-to-consumer eHealth pulse oximeter to use Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology for convenient, battery-saving connections to Bluetooth-Smart-ready iOS®, Android® or Windows® mobile devices

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nonin Medical, Inc., the inventor of finger pulse oximetry and a leader in noninvasive medical monitoring, today announced it will launch and demonstrate its NoninConnect(TM) direct-to-consumer Bluetooth(®) Smart wireless finger pulse oximeter* at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Jan. 7-10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 2, Booth #25319.

The NoninConnect pulse oximeter features Bluetooth(®) Smart (low energy) wireless technology, a unique user-facing display, and a proprietary algorithm that tells users if their finger is placed properly in the device for correct readings. NoninConnect is designed for use by athletes, pilots and Quantified-Self trackers who want to measure their arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate. Users can easily store and share their readings by downloading a Nonin or future third-party pulse oximetry software application onto their Bluetooth-Smart-ready iOS, Android or Windows mobile device.

"The NoninConnect offers significant advantages over other consumer pulse oximeters for personal health management," said Mark VanderWerf, Vice President eHealth, for Nonin Medical.

"The NoninConnect is made with the same Nonin medical-grade pulse oximetry technology that we build into our professional pulse oximeters for patients, clinicians and the military. So consumers benefit from the same clinically proven accuracy - but without needing a doctor's prescription," VanderWerf said.

"In addition, the NoninConnect is made in America and built to rugged durability standards. And because the NoninConnect uses the new Bluetooth Smart low-energy wireless technology, users don't have to sideline their phone with a cumbersome cable just to transfer their data. They also don't need to drain their phone battery just to power their pulse oximeter," he said.


--  Easy-to-read, large, clear user-facing display
--  Long battery life - allows for up to 2,200 spot checks on two AAA batteries
--  Simplified wireless pairing to Bluetooth-Smart-ready mobile devices:
-  No need to pre-pair or enter numbers

-  Pairing to Google Android and Microsoft Windows operating systems is available upon request
