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 the receipt of the No Objection Certificate
from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization of the Indian Ministry of
Health & Family Welfare. LifeWatch may now export and sell the LifeWatch V
smartphone across India.

Shortly after being awarded the CE mark for the LifeWatch V health smartphone
platform, LifeWatch can today report another milestone for its state-of-the-art
device dedicated to health and wellness conscious consumers. The Central Drugs
and Standard Control Organization of the Indian Ministry of Health & Family
Welfare in New Dehli has granted the No Objection Certificate ("NOC") for the
LifeWatch V health smartphone. This certificate allows LifeWatch to export and
sell the device across India.      

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, users 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 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. With the NOC certificate, LifeWatch
can enter the Indian marketplace which is considered one of the most important
future healthcare markets in the world.      

"Our receipt of the NOC is another important step in the go-to-market strategy
of the LifeWatch V smartphone, and closely follows our announcement of being
rewarded the CE mark in the beginning of December 2012", stated Dr. Yacov Geva,
Chairman of LifeWatch AG. "This latest approval demonstrates again our capacity
to develop and manufacture devices that meet commercial regulatory requirements
not only in the U.S. but also in important emerging markets like India".
