Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Accurate

Accurate:
"I was told by nurses and doctors that a wrist cuff monitor was not accurate and they recommended I send it back."
_
"This machine is ineffective and does not give you accurate readings."
_
"Seems to be pretty accurate while it shows more errors while measuring than the actual blood pressure test results."
_
"I did not dock a star for this, because it doesn't make sense to dock a product for being used incorrectly, but just know that where an arm cuff is much more difficult to use incorrectly, wrist method can be just as accurate."
_
"Couldn't be easier or more accurate."
_
"I would get the one that goes on arm, this one not easy to use and also i was told not very accurate."
_
"The #s that it displays look accurate and works very well for my parents."
_
"Very accurate and easy to use."

Battery

Battery:
"The pump slows down a bit when the battery gets weak but still works fine."
_
"The problem was the batteries I used to replace the old ones were not strong enough."
_
"Several of my local doctors use this device but often don't replace the batteries thus getting poor or incorrect readings."
_
"One drawback: it rapidly sucks batteries dry."
_
"Works well, one problem is the battery compartment cover, it is more than once subject to deliding not a good feature......"
_
"What I like the most about it, is that when the batteries begin to weaken, the monitor does a very good job reducing the chance of an inaccurate reading due to weak batteries."
_
"super easy to use, insert the batteries, put it on and then turn it on, the readings matched my nurses readings, so i call that good"
_
"works perfect and batteries last a long time"
_
"It's good for 20x test, and you have to replace battery after that! "
_
"Easy to change battery."
_
"Works like a charm, just need to make sure to change the batteries often to ensure accurate readings."

Button

Button:
"I tried everything - sit right, breathe normal, wait for blue light, align strap right after wrist bump, align start button to my thumb, and that failing, trying every other position."
_
"Some buttons are hidden behind the battery door for set up."
_
"works great, love the memory button"
_
"It is super easy to operate, just push the button once."

Calibration

Calibration:
"I purchased this to monitor blood pressure during pregnancy but was unable to get it properly calibrated."
_
"Trying to calibrate it with our doctor's equipment, it was never accurate."
_
"When I calibrated the worst cuff, which is very easy to use, the systolic and diastolic readings vary too much."
_
"After about 10 attempts the wrist monitor seemed to calibrate and was spot on."
_
"only problem, was the instruction manual- told me to have it calibrated before use- finally found out it is calibrated at the factory."
_
"There is no ability to calibrate the unit (and nothing in the instructions suggesting that calibration is necessary).Unfortunately, my blood pressure as measured by my doctor (and separately by his nurse) is about 20 points LOWER, i. e. the Omron device is giving consistently too-high readings."
_
"very satisfied calibrated good at doctors"
_
"Calibrated with other BP units and it appears to be reliable."
_
"smart, compact had it calibrated at my cardiologists and was right on the numbers for accuracy"
_
"Excellent calibration, easy to use, portability super"
_
"I haven't taken this in for my doctor to calibrate with his sphygmo, but no complaints thus far."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Have fibromyalgia so a regular cuff is painful to use, this one is much more comfortable."
_
"Comfortable and easy to use but too quick to error out on higher pressure tests."
_
"It is *much* more comfortable than a biceps monitor, which I actually find painful (no, I'm not a wimp, but someone who has a partially torn biceps tendon on one arm and a repaired one on the other)."
_
"So easy to use and comfortable! "
_
"It's easy to use, comfortable, and has large numbers that are easy to read."
_
"It is very easy to use and much more comfortable than an arm band blood pressure monitor."
_
"This is so much more comfortable, quick and easy to take along with you."
_
"I simply bought this product because I find patient become a bit more amazed and comfortable with the product when it is simply attached to the wrist and reads off the blood pressure and pulse (including arrhythmia).However, I've found the readings to be fairly inaccurate compared to the good old Manual Sphygmomanometer."

"Displays the wrong result"
_
"Only negative is that the display is not backlighted and does not display prominently."

Experience

Experience:
"Very poor experience, blood pressure value is not accurate"
_
"I had a really bad experience and I would not recommend."
_
"From personal experience, the doctors are biased and make incorrect, untrue assumptions."
_
"I think from my experience in watching it fail for all those who tried it, its not just a matter of not being an item for certain people."

"Excellent for people without experience but want to keep knowledge of their blood pressure."
_
"Decided to return unit and appreciate Amazon's hassle-free return experience."
_
"My initial experiences with this device are very good."
_
"Some reviewers have complained that it's difficult to satisfy the machine (stay in the blue light) but to my experience, as long as you put it on in the right place (lining up your thumb), follow the light, (light will turn orange if you raise your arm too high above your heart), and sit quietly, it's all but fail-proof!"
_
"I have had good luck with Omron products but this was a bad experience."

Fit

Fit:
"I put this on my penis (which was an extremely tight fit and challenge to do, but was possible with the help of some ky and 4 friends pushing it on)."
_
"I have a very small wrist and was worried it wouldn't give me a good reading but no worries this monitor will fit anyone's wrist or needs."
_
"It's convenient and works on majority of patients (I am a nurse) but the super skinny or heavier patients it's not accurate at all because the cuff won't even fit right on their wrist."
_
"Worse, many of them do not realize that an easy-use device costing less than one day's wages (or less) can make a difference for them between fit and compromised health!"
_
"Purchased this wrist meter because the PB cup of my meter did not fit well on the upper arm making it hard to get good readings."
_
"The electronic BP cuffs do not fit me well."
_
"Lots easier to fit than the upper arm model."
_
"The velcro strap folds neatly and fits nicely into a black case."
_
"A nice feature is that it can be adjusted to fit multiple wrist sizes which lets a couple buy just one."
_
"Pretty accurate..just make sure that you get a tighter fit on people with smaller wrists and it will be more accurate."
_
"The new one is smaller, fits differently on the wrist with a less easy to manage strap, is housed in a black half sized box compared to the former larger white one which is easier to see and find in a drawer!"

_
"Unfortunately, after a week, the monitors again gave grossly incorrect readings."
_
"The doctor snickered when she saw me using it and said her experience with wrist blood pressure monitors hasn't been accurate either."
_
"Over the last 15 or so years I've owned 6 monitors different brands but Omron has proved to be the most accurate and stable break-proof, and accurate but this model is a quantum leap superior and easier and faster than upper arm models."
_
"It is small and is as accurate as the arm monitors."

Monitoring:
"It has all the easy to read use features, including abnormal heart beat monitor, and is well worth the money."
_
"When I brought it to my cardiologist's office, we attempted to synchronize the reading on the wrist monitor with the doctor's pump monitor and the wrist monitor was not accurate."
_
"Nice looking BP monitor, easy to use - one problem: highly inaccurate."
_
"Both cardiologists said the Omron 7 was totally incorrect and not to continue to use it to monitor my blood pressure."
_
"My doctor had been asking me to monitor my blood pressure, and it was very inconvenient to stop regularly at my local grocer to use their free pressure cuff, which I had read was not particularly accurate anyway."

Movement

Movement:
"Too sensitive to slight movement; too many error messages."
_
"It is not a fault but a good point when finger movement, talking and other extraneous motion affects the reading."
_
"Very easy to use, fewer errors due to movement."
_
"Erroneously displays Movement error symbol(Displayed if you move your body during the measurement) even when I am very cautious to remain perfectly still."
_
"I've got an occasional erratic heart beat warning, due to movement during measurement, but otherwise it's spot on."
_
"Very frequently, I either get indications of movement, weak or poor pulse, or it bails out with an error right after initiating."
_
"This can be especially useful when taking readings from prone positions where movement can interfere with accurate results."
_
"It is not a fault but a good point when finger movement, talking and other extraneous motion affects the reading."
_
"Very easy to use, fewer errors due to movement."
_
"I am a nurse and this work great.. no errors due to body movements..It works everytime and has a memory that is wonderful..."
_
"I would say it is accurate majority of the time and when it's not is because of to much movement."
_

Plastic

Plastic:
"Plus the shape of the band makes it hard to fold back into the small plastic casse, but i do like the size, it's much smaller then old wrist band and less rigid so it fits in this smaller flatter case."
_
"It also has a tough plastic case that will prevent most damaging bumps and such, unless it is trampled under a car tire."
_
"If I had one complaint it would be the storage case plastic box."
_
"All the Parts came off as soon as I opened the Box, the Plastic display fell out and I was unable to put the Parts back."
_
"i own an omron automatic upper arm blood pressure cuff which also does not take good measurements because of the plastic insert... i have a very large upper arm and when i put it on it gaps at the elbow and wont measure properly and i cant get a replacement cuff without the plastic insert... so i bought this wrist one and although it fits wonderfully just above the wrist bone it does NOT give me a proper reading.... how do i know?"
_
"Excellent, compact blood pressure monitor, with its own plastic protective case."
_
"Great little machine, comes in small plastic case, easy to transport when traveling and does not take up a lot of space."
_
"I like the ease of use, and the little plastic cube it comes in means I can throw it in with my lunch bag or whatever and not worry about getting it nasty or broken."
_
"It came with a nice black plastic clamshell type case to store it in."
_
"Comes with a nice hard plastic case."

Program

Program:
"Only negative for me is having to program it each time you change from right to left arm and vice versa."
_
"Unfortunately I have missed placed the booklet on it, have looked everywhere for it but so far have not been able to find it and I need to get my son-in-law to program it for me for memory purposes."
_
"Product is too hard to program, and instructions are a nightmare."
_
"works well, easy to program and use."

Pulse

Pulse:
"I can not get a good blood pressure pulse reading from this wrist BP."
_
"it may not work on some pts with weak pulses so i have to use my manual cuff."
_
"The orange light that comes on when this device cannot find the pulses is very annoying esp."
_
"Also my pulse rate return after exercising was terrible."
_
"After discovering a weak pulse at one wrist and my doctors inability to measure my blood pressure with the cuff, pump & dial medical standard device, I purchased this Omron from Amazon."
_
"Very frequently, I either get indications of movement, weak or poor pulse, or it bails out with an error right after initiating."
_
"This is very easy to use and makes keeping up with pulse and blood pressure easy."
_
"All in all, a great and easy way to monitor your blood pressure and pulse over time."
_
"It is accurate, displaying Systolic (top) and Diastolic (bottom) readings as well as the pulse rate per minute."
_
"Pulse readings were fairly accurate though but not the arrhythmia."
_
"I appreciate convenience of checking BP pulse and AFib infrequent rhythm."

_
"I believe this device has a quality problem, I gave up and asked foir a refund on the third one."

Reliability

Reliability:
"Early wrist monitors were not known for their reliability, but I believe they have overcome some of the initial problems with this model."
_
"I would buy this again if I ever needed another, unless of course a wrist watch size model is available which I am sure it will be in the future, but the price of this one makes it hard to beat coupled with its accuracy, reliability, convenience and ease of use."
_
"My personal impression is that these wrist BP monitors aren't quite up to snuff when it comes to reliability; the wrist cuff appears to be the weakest link to say nothing of the fact that there is also a greater variability in the BP measurements taken when compared with the standard - much more reliable - arm cuff monitors."
_
"Reliability is very good"
_
"It's reliability, built in memory, and ease of use ensure that she is more likely to be consistent with checking her BP."
_
"I would buy this again if I ever needed another, unless of course a wrist watch size model is available which I am sure it will be in the future, but the price of this one makes it hard to beat coupled with its accuracy, reliability, convenience and ease of use."
_
"I purchased this product because of it's accuracy and reliability."
_
"The portability and reliability of the wrist monitor checked are important advantages for people that travel since they can monitor the very important blood pressure parameter in any place at any time."
_

Reliable

Reliable:
"Not accurate and very difficult to get reliable results."
_
"The results are pretty inconsistent; which makes any single one not reliable."
_
"Could not get a reliable blood pressure reading over several attempts."
_
"Plus it was hard to get on and not always reliable."
_
"My old Omron cuff was accurate and reliable, but it was accidentally broken."
_
"This blood pressure cuff is handy to use and seems about as reliable as any cuff monitor (not as good as and arm cuff)."
_
"Omron is known to be a very reliable brand in the medical field and I frequently recommend it to my patients and I would also recommend it to anyone who is looking for a simple blood pressure cuff."
_
"Easy to use and reliable."
_
"Reliable, good readings, easy to use."
_
"As advertised, product works well and shipping was quick and reliable."

Run

Run:
"I have been attempting tocontact Omicron but have been given an incorrect phone number and a real email run around."
_
"It always runs a little high, which is a problem because I cannot figure out how to recalibrate it."
_
"I have tested this several times against a Panasonic upper arm monitor (which has been compared to my doctor's office readings) and the Omron readings run consistently higher and are more erratic."
_
"The only problem I have run into is that it will not generate an accurate reading while the patient is lying supine."
_
"I am not sure how accurate it is but seems to run close to my doctors."
_
"The unit came with batteries, which is great as I didn't have to run out and purchase them separately."
_
"Bought this to replace an Omron blood pressure monitor that had worked well for many years but would not always run."
_
"Much easier to whip this out and do a BP than to remember to run down to the drug store to use theirs."
_
"It is accurate, keeps track of your readings, runs on two AA batteries and has good durability (I think mine is about five years old.)"
_
"I chose Omron because my cuff is that brand, is very accurate and runs on either battery or house current."
_

Sensor

Sensor:
"I imagine that this is most likely a cuff problem (as in the BP sensor which is contained in the non-user-serviceable cuff), but I am not inclined to spend the approximately $30.00 plus shipping & handling to see whether this returns things back to normal or not since the BP monitor itself only cost $55.00 when new."
_
"The sensors in these cuffs are very cheaply made and very easily broken."
_
"I had a wrist type blood pressure unit before, and I found it was not very accurate, but it didn't have a sensor like this one does, so I may have not had it positioned correctly."
_
"The position sensor is great."
_
"The correct level sensor is good."
_
"The sensor light easily indicates when it is in the correct position."
_
"Easy to use, sensor really helps to position monitor correctly."
_
"The position sensor in this meter is surprisingly accurate and combined with the ability to average the most recent three readings provide both consistency and accuracy."

Strap

Strap:
"Plus it gives me some peace of mind when I'm worried about why I'm feeling lightheaded (can strap it on and make sure my blood pressure isn't out of whack)."
_
"The velcro strap folds neatly and fits nicely into a black case."
_
"The new one is smaller, fits differently on the wrist with a less easy to manage strap, is housed in a black half sized box compared to the former larger white one which is easier to see and find in a drawer!"
_
"Easy to use, put it on, tighten the Velcro strap, move your wrist up to the level of the heart when the light turns blue it begins to inflate."
_
"This is much easier to use than the one you strap on your upper arm."
_
"The Omron monitor is so easy to use, I can quickly strap it on and take a quick measurement."

Track

Track:
"Allows me to accurately keep track of my numbers when exercising, not feeling well, and trying to manage me on a regular basis."
_
"If you have problems, then you want to keep track regularly to see if its getting worse or better."
_
"If you think your in good shape, keeping track of your BP can help you be aware of problems you can talk to your doctor about."
_
"We bought this blood pressure monitor for my wife to keep track on her blood pressure during pregnancy and we were very frustrated to find out how it consistently gives inaccurate measurements."
_
"I was not very good at keeping track of my BP because of this."
_
"This was disappointing, because we purchased it to track his high blood pressure."
_
"A great way to keep track of my blood pressure."
_
"wonderful device with option of keeping track of blood pressure for 2! "
_
"Excellent to track your own blood pressure."
_
"This Works Great & helps me keep track of my blood pressure."

Tracking

Tracking:
"It tends to run just a little low and has the potential for inaccuracy if you move, but it's the best method I have found for tracking home BP."
_
"Tracking of multiple users plus a guest is a nice function."
_
"It was easy to use and I have been tracking my blood pressure since the day I received it."
_
"I love the tracking feature."
_
"I love the simple tracking features of this, and my doctor tested it against her best monitor and it was almost identical readings."

Weight

Weight:
"This design, in which the arm is held out in front with elbow on table, may solve a positioning problem I had with some clients, who possibly because of their very large weight, could not seem to get the arm across the chest sufficiently to properly positionCons: Need a table, and one which places the elbow such that a relatively straight line can occur between the wrist and the chest."
_
"Darn thing works well -- compact, lightweight, easy to use."
_
"It has been traveling with me for a couple months now, compact, lightweight and very accurate."
_
"Small format, lightweight, fast and seems accurate, but can only be used on the left wrist (need to remove watch), seated (can't use lying down)."
_
"Very fast, Accurate & reliable, Light weight monitor."
_
"It works well sometimes, if the person is of normal weight and perfectly follows the directions."
