LifeWatch AG signs agreement with AliveCor, Inc.

Zug/Switzerland, January 11, 2016 - LifeWatch AG (SIX Swiss Exchange: LIFE), a
leading developer and provider of medical solutions and remote diagnostic
monitoring services to the digital health market, is pleased to announce the
signing of an agreement with AliveCor Inc. to utilize the AliveCor(R) Mobile ECG
technology in its cardiac monitoring business. We are working together to
integrate the AliveCor Mobile ECG into LifeWatch's cardiac monitoring product
offering.

Dr. Stephan Rietiker, CEO of LifeWatch, commented, "Digital health monitoring is
revolutionizing how people interact with healthcare delivery. The AliveCor
Mobile ECG will enable LifeWatch to broaden its cardiac event monitoring
services, whilst at the same time opening the door to post-event cardiac
monitoring via a patient's own mobile device. This will provide the patient with
greater control and convenience. At the same time, physicians will benefit from
a broader range of attractive, diagnostic options. AliveCor's technology
offering complements that of LifeWatch, and emphasizes our commitment to using
the most innovative technologies available."

"We are excited about expanding into the remote patient monitoring market, which
will allow us to have a bigger impact on people's lives and bring healthcare
into the 21st century," said Vic Gundotra, chief executive officer of AliveCor.
"Using the AliveCor Mobile ECG will keep patients in touch with their physicians
outside of the hospital and can help to identify cardiac problems before
something life-threatening occurs."

The AliveCor Mobile ECG records accurate ECGs and heart rate anywhere and at any
time. The customer simply rests the fingers on the device or places the device
to the chest to record an ECG in just 30 seconds. A first response is provided
immediately with an in-depth expert analysis available as required.
