In this RCT, up to 100 adults classified as pre-hypertensive will be randomized to either an artificial intelligence (AI) based lifestyle intervention group or an active control group with a 1 to 1 ratio. Both groups will receive an identical activity tracker (Samsung Galaxy Watch) and BP monitor (Omron Evolv). The AI intervention group will receive automated and personalized lifestyle recommendations based on their lifestyle (e.g. sleep, exercise and diet) and blood pressure (BP) data, involving an automated analytics engine using statistics and machine learning. The active control group will not receive these lifestyle recommendations. The investigators aim to assess objectively the effectiveness of the AI-based personalized lifestyle recommendations on the patients BP.
