Neuhausen am Rheinfall/Switzerland - LifeWatch AG (SIX Swiss Exchange: LIFE),
the leading wireless remote cardiac and medical patient monitoring service
provider in the U.S., today reports that its LifeWatch V health smartphone
platform was awarded the CE Mark (Number 2074225CE02). The CE Mark allows
LifeWatch AG to launch its new LifeWatch V in Europe.

You will find a PDF-version of this press release at the end of this message.

A CE mark confirms that the LifeWatch V system has met the applicable directives
of the European Commission (EC) and as such, can be marketed to the 30-nation
EEA and Switzerland. The LifeWatch V is a fully featured state-of-the-art
smartphone that allows patients and health- and wellbeing-conscious consumers to
self-operate a wide range of embedded medical sensors, wellness-related
applications, cloud-based services and 24/7 call center support.

By using the barely visible sensors on the phone's frame, patients and health-
and wellness consumers can track, capture, collect and analyze their health
measurements anywhere anytime. The sensors include ECG, body temperature, blood
glucose, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, body fat percentage and stress
analysis measurement. All of the collected data can be retrieved from the cloud
for a follow-up. Users can take corrective action, plan diets and activities,
securely share the information with a health provider or family member, trend
and analyze the data and more. Patients may also program the LifeWatch V to
remind them of their drug type, dose and intake time.

The LifeWatch V handset unit includes a service enablement platform to support
the transmission of medical data to be analyzed, evaluated and communicated to
health professionals and call center personnel around the clock. The device
wirelessly interacts with a cloud-based environment allowing its' users direct
access to a wide range of complementary medical and wellness related services.

The LifeWatch V smartphone is an important milestone on the Company's way
towards more diversification into new service areas such as the consumer and
wellness markets and into new geographies.

"This is the first time in the company's history that a multi-parameter device
with five medical functions has been awarded the CE Mark", stated Dr. Yacov
Geva, Chairman of LifeWatch AG. "The approval demonstrates our capacity to
develop and manufacture devices that meet commercial regulatory requirements not
only in the U.S. but also in Europe and elsewhere".

LifeWatch is currently in discussions with a number of multi-national cell
carriers, pharmaceutical and healthcare providers all over the world on
partnership opportunities of the LifeWatch V.
