I'm a retired RN, know how inaccurate the little BP machines can be, but since my sphygmomanometer is long broken, I decided to try one. I went with Omron knowing it was a good brand. I've been getting very accurate readings with this little machine for 2 weeks now. I'm thrilled about that since I almost bought a more expensive model thinking "you get what you pay for". I've compared readings on both my arms with other large machines & am satisfied that I made a good choice. My new Omron BP was 114/64 on the left arm, and 115/65 on the right arm. There is normally a difference between arms - mine is very slight...but it is accurate. You can click on a button to see recent BPs - each click gives you a different past reading - it would be nice if the dates were with the readings....maybe you get that with a more expensive model, but I'm satisfied with what I have and recommend it. The cuff is pretty easy to secure on your arm, but I can see some very elderly people having trouble doing it themselves.
