I have been using an Omron with a paper printout for going on 20 years. Always worked fine, agreed with Doctor/nurse readings. But, I wanted one that connected to the computer, so got this.
I am on my SECOND unit. Both of them consistently read too high. By 15-20 points on the higher number, and 5-15 on the lower. The heartbeats seems to always be lower by 5. I have compared them to other meters many times, including in the Doctor's offce. Always the same results. I took it in for an exchange, the second meter was worse in the same way. A third meter on the shelf had a damaged box.
I cannot recommend this meter.
ps: I too am a software engineer. The human interface and documentation are just terrible. Then again, I have a computer-link blood glucose meter and it has the same kind of bad software. It's obvious to me this software was written FOR DOCTORS to use with MANY patients. It's NOT written for the consumer.
