Hypertension is the leading preventable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality. To address this growing public challenge, focus on reducing overall cardiovascular risk through early screening, initiation of treatment and ongoing monitoring remains a priority in comprehensive management of hypertension and its related burden.

Several wearable cuffless devices have been developed with potential for continuous remote monitoring of blood pressure. However, there is a dearth of literature that has synthesised the validity and usability of wearable cuffless bp devices to be recommended in clinical practice.

This commentary critically appraises a systematic review which sought to assess the validity, features, and clinical usability of wearable cuffless devices and expand upon the findings with regards to clinical future research.
