I read about this product in Consumer Reports magazine. It was listed as a CR BEST BUY. Because I trust their recommendations, I ordered it. It is very easy to use, accurate, and less than half the price of the other units that Consumer Reports listed as reliable. It also gives you the option of using the AC Adaptor instead of batteries. I am VERY pleased, and would recommend this product to anyone who wants to RELIABLY monitor their blood pressure at home.
I bought this and was skeptical, but trusted others who had left reviews. They were right! Since I take my present high blood pressure problem serious I find it comforting to have this device available. I couldn't believe these were available at such a low price. I also brought it along to my doctors office to be on the safe side and check its accuracy. (It was) I use it 5 times or more per day, and it is so easy to use. It runs on either wall plug, or AA batteries for portability. (you have to buy the batteries, but the wall plug is included) Great item, I would recommend it to anyone who is concerned about monitoring their blood pressure and/or heart rate.
this meter is made by Omron,and was ranked near the top right next to the Omron hem711 in Consumer Report Magazine. Both meters seem similar, and have easy-to-use soft cuffs. if you have a large arm, order thelarge size cuff for $10.Many compaints on the newer meters that have a stiffcuff that is too large fr many arms, and difficult toget good readings.This unit does the job for me by letting me know if my pressure is in a good region, or I am currenly low. It also has an irregular heart beat indicator, useful for someone like me who has that problem. this meter has no sound, so you can't actually hear the pulse irregularities, as my old Omron could. There seems to be good agreement between measurements made with the new and old meters, giving goog confidence that they are both accurate. Bottom line is it's the best meter available for this price point, and may actually outperform others that are much more expensivel. This is the one to buy! The only negative is there is no carry case provided, but there are other cases around that I am sure this meter and cuff set woud fit nicely into.
Great monitor for a great price. Super easy to use and seems to be very accurate. I can think of no reason why this would not be your first choice for the value. Thumbs up!
A leading consumer magazine rated this product as a best buy for price and its features/reliability. I've been very satisfied with it and happy to get a product that comparable brands price at twice as much or more.
While the price was right and the unit was easy to read, it consistently gave inaccurate readings that were generally 20-30 points high (Systolic) and 10-15 points high(Diastolic). I took it down with me to my doctor's office and we spent near an hour taking readings between this unit and with several different nurses there taking my blood pressure with their equipment. Every time the ReliOn was much higher. If I could have gotten accurate readings, I would have recommended this because I like the unit itself. However, if it can't take an accurate reading than it is much worth to anyone.
Ordered by doc to check B/P3Xa day for 30 days. Bought this for the job. Totally satisfied, memory for two people for a bunch of readings (100 or something). Easy to use. So Far So Good!! Batteries or A/C. Used only on batteries so far. My computer reverses pics for some reason, you don't have to hold it in front of the mirror to read it! lol
I just bought this today ( 5/19/09 ) and I have got to say it met all my aspectation. I got this to test my blood pressure and to measure my heart pulse rate. It does a fantastic job at it.. It is really great product for the money, it comes with a AC adapter endless battery life, and you can put 4 AA batteries in it to make it portable. It also has two user settings for two different people to keep there own recordings on the machine. It also has a indicator to tell you when it reads your heart rate. I fount that very southing to make sure that its on right and that its working just fine.. It really isn't that hard to use, its like plug in and strap on your arm and your good to go.. Easy Readings and Just really good results.. The manual wasn't hard to follow either was very accurate on understanding what to do, they even give you a mini journal to keep further track of your readings. I ran it three times and I got Two of the same results and one that was only little bit off maybe like by a point or two... But It really does work, I strongly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to keep an eye on there blood pressure and there heart rate...
My daughter who is very young began having symptoms that could be heart related. BP shot up over 158/11 consistently. She bought a monitor from a local reputable pharmacy but not Rel-ion
She was constantly getting false readings and her
physicians told her it needed to be calibrated?? I shipped her the Reli-On from the online Walmart store , she received it and began using it immediately with excellent results. It has made her life much less stressful these days . She has been using it for approx 4 weeks and couldn't be more pleased as it has aided her in providing her physicians with the information they need in order to adjust the BP medication until they have completed the testing on her heart. I was not at all surprised at the performance of the Reli-On BP Monitor as my sister( a nurse ) and I have used one for years. Thank You for providing your consumers with a product that can be counted on EVERY TIME it is used.
I needed an accurate, cheap pressure montor quickly and I always check reviews. This unit stood out and I have been very pleased with my purchase. It is very easy to set up, has a small foot print, simple to use and is very easy to read/understand.
Most units I have used will progressively, painfully, squeeze my left arm far too long, including those in the Dr. office. The ReliOn builds up quickly and comfortably and always nails it on the FIRST try:)
It's not as portable as the wrist units but it's much more accurate. It's pretty comfortable to use and I like that it has A and B readings so you can easily track the reading for 2 people.
This product was easy to use.
I'm a physician who makes housecalls. Had an Omron that got lost and replaced it with this. They are identical in every way except cost plus this one comes with a cord and with Omron the cord is extra.
I really have nothing negative to say about this machine EXCEPT it tightens the cuff a little too much and out of the approximately 10 times I've used it 8 of those 10 it pumped up the cuff to over 200 and it gets too tight. I usually have to get a larger cuff but this one is really roomie. I don't even have to pull it tightly in order to make it stay fastened on my arm. I do think my size is one reason why the cuff seems to get tighter than some others we've had - but having the larger cuff that stays put once you get it fastened is worth a LOT. I love the fact that it shows at a glance by a pop up box whether my BP is normal, pre-hypertensive, or high. Another plus is - it's fast. Even though the cuff gets a little snug on me the swiftness of it finding the correct BP, pulse rate and actually taking the guess work out of "Is my BP too high/low", it's a great machine for the money. It's very sturdy and the BP cuff is not only generous in its length but it is wider than most and it stays in place until it finishes with the reading of your BP.
Relion is made by the same great company, Omron, for Walmart. Same quality, best price. Rated by Consumer Reports as one of the top two best automatic blood pressure monitors on the market, beating other more expensive monitors!! I always do my research before I shop! The one disclaimer I've found is that manual blood pressure monitors, the ones at the doctor's office, will always be more accurate by far. However, this is the best automatic monitor I've found for daily home use.
First few days, it read my BP, no problem. Later, I kept getting "Error" results in spite of trying everything I could to rule out an error reading.
This monitor had a lot of reviews and was rated high, so I went with it. I am really happy with it. Very reliable, easy to use, great price, accurate. No complaints.
My wife, a retired ICU and organ transplant nurse, has a slight BP issue based on genetics, despite being vegetarian, healthy, taking supplements, exercise, etc. She's tried all manner of electronic BP measurement devices, but none has lasted nor given consistent results. I read reviews of this machine, including a top consumer publication, and thought I'd give it a try. She is very pleased with the machine. The build quality is good, she likes its features, she likes its accuracy. The price was right, especially compared to others, and the product was shipped quickly to our home. It's refreshing to find a well-made product that is affordable and works like it says it will. Our advice: buy this machine. You won't be sorry.
Took device to doctor's office to measure accuracy. Reading was way off from actual BP as measured by nurse on professional equipment.
I monitor my BP daily. I had given my machine to my Mother for her use and bought this one. I wish I had bought the exactly same kind as I had before. The ReliOn has consistently given high results. I took it in and compared against machine used for months and it was +~30 systolic and +~diastolic. I would not recommend this product due to inaccuracy.
