Clip & Talk unveiled its lineup of Bluetooth headsets and accompanying app at the 2015 CE Week held in New York. The app can tell your doctor when you are sick, according to reports.

Clip & Talk features an earpiece clip which can be clipped somewhere closer to the ear. There is a switch in the back of the headset, which can be easily turned on, after which the device pairs in three seconds or less. In case of an incoming call, the headset can automatically answer it by just being flipped on, reports Digital Trends.

Clip & Talk will be available in seven different models i.e. the Me (priced at $39.99), Fashion Matrix (priced at $59.90), Aluminum (priced at $69.90), View (priced at $99), Alu Pro (priced at $79.90), Alu Health (priced at $149.90), and Alu Pro Health ($159.90). All the models are compatible with Siri, other voice recognition software and works well with VoIP services like Viber and Skype.

Clip & Talk is clinically validated and the headset monitors all health related details like heart rate, steps to cadence and metabolism. The app can suggest medical attention by evaluating the data fed by the user, sensor data and algorithms. The users’ GPS location, real time sensor data and medical history will be stored and can be accessed by medical professionals, as per the Digital Trends report.

Tech companies have been coming up with new ideas to aid the medical fraternity. Recently, BlackBerry revealed its plans to design a bacteria free smartphone so that it can be used in hospitals. With this, the smartphone manufacturer aims at becoming the most secured option for secure mobile communications within the healthcare industry, according to a report on Tech Times.

BlackBerry has partnered with Cisco Systems and ThoughtWire to provide doctors and nurses in a unit of the Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital with a portable alert and messaging system. BlackBerry will provide the software and devices required for the project, but it did not reveal any details on the amount that the company would spend on this project, reports Tech Times.
