you can sometimes find better price new on ebay but this is lowest price on Amazon since Black Friday/December 2019

I've owned several wrist and upper arm cuffs and I really like this one

it is very hassle-free, you can use it standalone or you just push one button on your phone and the device to make it save the last 100 readings you just did and make a nice graph

no wires means you just slide it all the way up your arm below the armpit, sit still for 20 seconds and done, it is very fast

it's extremely quiet but not 100% quiet

reads higher than my wrist monitors but I trust this one more than any wrist device

bonus made in Japan, when was the last time that happened

added: darn it amazon, they just "smart priced" it to $68, maybe check Sunday late night for price drop since they tend to play games like that, slight bump before drop

QA Edit: Now $69.99 and says in stock on July 26 but you can still order it.

adding:

also now at walmart for $69.99 with free "next day" delivery to some cities

and now $69.99 at Best Buy

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/omro...Id=6265652

price multi-search but not all stores

check amazon after sunday nights for price drops, prices tend to go up there over weekends

yeah for those with high tolerance for ebay shinanigans, I've even seen it around $50 there but some things I won't ebay these days anymore

something about a hassle-free prime return makes it worth few dollars more

also amazon might push the price down, maybe

$66 is definitely lowest big retail price https://www.google.com/shopping/p...851/online

My upper arm blood pressure device finally bit the dust on July 4th. Since Covid, mine has gone up so I need to monitor it. Is this the best cuff or does anyone recommend anything better? I appreciate any recommendations.

if you don't need bells and whistles and just want zero hassle, get it done in morning/evening, this is absolutely perfect

just plop it down on any table, slide it on when you are ready, one button press and 20 seconds later done unless you want a second pass

later sync to phone or tablet if you want, optional

if you like browsing the actual monitor and want all the features there, this is not the device, it is functional minimal

but it is fast and quiet and smooth, and no wires or cables at all

still on my first AAA batteries, easily hundreds of readings

you can use the omron app or the kardia app (same company) or I think other apps just use the omron API and you can even make it go into google fitness, etc. but I haven't fiddled that much

I find the arm cuffs far more reliable than the wrist cuffs. I have no personal experience with Omron but they are said to be the better ones on the BP forums and such. I'd trust the arm one more than the worst one for sure. The wrist ones kept reading high and sending me into panics. I don't use them any more.

Since you own this, can you tell me how accurate it is? I looked at this one when mine broke and there were reviews about accuracy. I had my old one validated at the doctor's office to see how far off they were. Can this be calibrated or is it accurate out of the box? I do not need bells and whistles, just something reliable and accurate.

it definitely reads higher than either wrist monitor I own

I've never seen a calibration function

I think the key is you have to wear it distinctly above the elbow, not touching the elbow, it needs to be at the same level as the heart

shoving it up your armpit even slightly is also a mistake, the heart is lower than armpit

I get almost the same reading on the left or right arm so it's at least consistent

this diagram is helpful

btw another good reason to buy from amazon vs ebay if you are worried about accuracy, good luck with ebay return

This looks like a great replacement. I really like sticking with the name brand stuff and Omron is the biggest consumer-grade brand. Also, it measures on the arm; the wrist-based monitors should be avoided because it's just too tough to get consistent readings. This model uses the "Comfit" cuff which I like a lot better than the old fashioned D-ring style cuff. It takes a little bit of getting used to. The Comfit one has some stiff plastic that makes the cuff hold it's shape and it holds in place making it easier to position on the arm prior to snugging up the velcro end. One big plus is access to all the historical readings via the app. This is 2020, anyone with hypertension ought to have a simple way to get these readings to your doc. The app is a bit awkward, but it's functional and you can access the raw data without doing the subscription. The one drawback is that it's a little bit tougher to read the text, but only when compared some of the extremely large and bright 2 piece units like the Series 10.

I have this one for exactly one year from a clinical research project. I took 2 consecutive measurement in 1 minute interval almost every week as part of the requirement. I have all records transferred to Omron iPhone app which is connected to the database of the research project. Over the one year of continue monitoring, the two consecutive measurements are usually within 3-5mmHg difference but occasionally the difference could be 10mmHg or higher. This kind of variation is typical for any similar automatic cuffs. Indeed, the measurement variation of this unit is slightly better than the one I got from Costco a couple years ago.
I wonder if some of those on eBay are from other participants in the program as many did not continue the study after the first 3 months phase 1. There were over 7000 participants in the program who got the Apple watch 4 and the blood pressure cuffs for free if completed the phase 1. I know some people sold the Apple watch 4 immediately as they can use other Apple watch in the study.
After a year and a few days with over 100 measurements and weekly data transfer, it is still on the original battery.

I'll say this much, it is very consistent as long as I place it exactly the same and sit exactly the same, even from left arm to right arm

the key to a good blood pressure monitor is how little hassle it is, otherwise you just aren't going to use it, with all kinds of cables and wires and stuff

this just sits like a tube on your table top and when you want to deal with it for 30 seconds in morning/night you just pop it on your arm in a moment since you've learned the exact position to sit and place it, press one button and I think the full cycle is like only 20 seconds, really fast

you don't even have to sync to your phone right then, just let the recordings build until you have a moment someday to push the sync button and the last 100 recording from any day/time pop over to your phone or tablet

you don't have to use the omron app, it also works with the kardia app and others

only problem now is amazon has smart-priced it to $69 but sometimes late Sunday or Monday night the prices will drop across the system again - ah I see what they are doing, it's tied to the walmart price now

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Omron-.../326384298


This is what the kardia/omron app looks like, you can see where I did a manual reading afterwards on my old cheap wrist monitor which was way off in comparison

this was a bad week with a gallstone attack, you can see it build Thursday-Friday
