Omron 3 Series Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor (Model BP629N)
Great product. Easy to use and very affordable.
I bought this product back in July and use it on a weekly basis. It is very portable, lightweight and easy to use. I monitor my BP before and after I work out or run. It keeps me in check and is a handy tool without the hassles of going to a Dr's. office or clinic. I would recommend this product to anybody that wants to monitor their BP and pulse rate in the convenience of their own home or even office.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
NO WONDER THIS IS THE CUSTOMER FAVORITE
So far, I am very pleased with this Wrist Cuff. I like the fact that unlike my previous one (different brand), this has a nice, snug fit, assuring NO slippage, that could result in a false reading. Display of numbers easy to read and I appreciated the starter up duo-pack of batteries that came with it.
Easy and accurate
I bought this meter to replace my bulb-inflated digital meter, which was becoming difficult to use because of my arthritis. The Omron is the same model used at my doctor's office. I don't follow the box instructions which tell you to put your elbow on a table and bend at 45 degree (more or less) angle. My M.D. advised a more accurate reading is obtained by folding your arm against your chest and she is correct, it is easy to use and perfect every time, none of the frustrating E errors I'd get on the older meter! I should add the price is very nice.
Accurate & easy to use
Well, the headline pretty much covers it. This pretty much matched to both a digital cuff and an analog cuff at my clinic. (2 pts lower than the digital, 3 pts higher than the analog - as my cardiac care nurse tells me +/- 5 pts is not an accuracy concern -and anyone who tells you otherwise is not being realistic) This is very easy to put on & take off, and has an easy to read digital display. My last Omron cuff was accurate for the first 12 years - replacing it on that schedule I believe is reasonable. If this last similarly, I shall be satisfied.
The wrist band is sufficient, but needs to be forced on the wrist due to it's tight fit. This model also lacks the speaker which tells you what the measures are in case you have a problem with reading text. There is a poor response from the date/time settings and just about worthless. The written directions are clear, but the button settings are not responding as indicated. And so far, that part of the product is worthless.
Omron S3 WBP Monitor
Almost 70, I figured a BP monitor was a good investment for my future health. Right out of the box, I knew I had a quality product. It has an easy to read multifunction face & isn't much bigger than a smart watch; it also comes with an affordable price. I highly recommend this to anyone needing a quality travel monitor.
