The device might come with a touchscreen or might be Bluetooth compatible. The patent indicates that like any other blood pressure measurement devices, Apple wearable blood pressure monitor cuff is a collection of tiny airbags, or cells. It exert pressure on the wearer’s arm and cut off blood flow.

The Apple’s patent indicates that their new device is planned to have a one sensor or several, in each airbag to measure the blood’s pressure flows through the arm or leg of users.
