Philips admits that not everybody is capable of spending $600 for the complete set of devices, but the company is hopeful that people will be interested in any one or two devices according to their needs. People who have weight problems may want to spend in the watch & scale, whereas patients with Hypertension can go with the upper-arm blood pressure monitor and so on.
