Despite this, according to the World Health Organization WHO, fewer than one in two of those affected measures their blood pressure regularly. The main reason for this is that regular measurements are costly. An innovative wrist sensor should now change that.

The striking part of the news is that this new monitoring concept is less to not invasive (no pumping up of a cuff or IV sensors) and has “promising” accuracy.
If you could change the text to reflect this news it would be considered as such. I initially thought “How is this news. Wristband Monitors exist for a while and are notoriously inaccurate (reading: useless.”
