This is something that is used every day across the country in doctor’s offices, hospitals and care facilities. While thought to be something that is rarely seen outside of these areas, it can be beneficial to you to have one to track your heart rate and blood pressure in your own home. This model is one that comes highly recommended and is one that is super similar and made by the same manufacturer as the one I use personally. My family has a history of heart disease, so I like to err on the side of caution and monitor myself without having to go to the doctor.
This model is a simple version that you Velcro to your wrist while sitting and let the cuff do its work. All you need to do, once you charge it and set up any setting you want, is press the start/stop button. I love this model because it is so simple. I literally didn’t set anything up, just charged it up, sat down, put on my wrist, pressed the start/stop button and we were golden.
Literally anyone who needs to keep track of their blood pressure and/or heart rate, anyone on medication for either of those, or anyone who is wanting to track either of those for personal reasons.
The main perk to them right now is that you do not have to go to a clinical setting to get your blood pressure taken. At the time of writing thins, Covid is rampant through the United States and going to the doctor for anything other than a very needed reason is, in this writers’ opinion, foolish.
I absolutely love it. The last time I went into the doctor’s office to be approved for some medication, my blood pressure was borderline “high”. I made the decision to get the model similar to this one because I wanted to be able to monitor my blood pressure at home. I can do it any time, don’t have to go to the doctor’s office to find out how I am doing, and my doctor appreciates it as well since I am not taking up an appointment slot that could be used for someone with a more pressing matter than just getting their blood pressure checked.
I would like to note that the reason I got the other model was because it used batteries instead of a charging cord. My family goes camping and I needed something that I wouldn’t have to plug in to charge. I wanted to write a review for the model that I have, but they no longer offer it that I can find. This model that I am reviewing is great nonetheless, and very convenient for someone who is in their home or at the very least somewhere that has a way to plug in the charging cord.
The pros here are numerous.
1. Not only is it something that you can do at your own home, but you can do it anytime you feel the need. As long as you
have a charge or an outlet.
2. You can take it with you when you travel so you don’t have to worry if you are away from home for long periods of time.
3. It is super easy to use, and super easy to stop if it gets too tight or stops to function properly
Some cons that have crossed my mind are that
1. You should take it once to a doctors visit to see how accurate it is so you know and can adjust as needed.
2. You need to be sure that you do not talk and rest your arm on a surface while the cuff is working.
3. Since it doesn’t take batteries, you have to be able to charge it somewhere.
As far as this writer is concerned this is an amazing product. I love how easy it is to use and how I can just store it away when I am not using it. I especially love how it is small enough to go inside a small pocket in my luggage when I get to go somewhere.
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is on high blood pressure medicine or is at risk for high blood pressure. It’s so easy to monitor from home with this cuff.
