My and my families’ health is important to me. We do everything we can to stay healthy from eating right, staying active and getting enough sleep.
With a family history of high blood pressure, it’s important for me to monitor mine. I don’t want to ask others to do it for me. The Health Gurus Blood Pressure Monitor by Greater Goods gives me the easy option of checking my blood pressure at home. Not only can I check my blood pressure but I can check my pulse rate as well. Besides the convenience, some of the other things I love about the monitor is that it keeps a memory of my blood pressure so that I can note changes from one day to another. It also has a memory for a second user. The cuff is really easy to put on with one hand. After applying the cuff, with the push of one button, I can get a readout that is easy to understand. It also can detect an irregular heart rate though I haven’t had it alert me to one, thank goodness.
- Easy to use
- Cuff can be put on with one hand
- One button for readout
- 60 entry memory
- 2 user memory
- Reads pulse as well as heart rate
- Runs on 4 AAA batteries so make sure not to store it with them inside
- Readings may or may not be consistent with health care provider
I always worry about accuracy with home health products. However, I found that if I use the blood pressure monitor at the same time each day (preferably in the morning), I get a consistent a blood pressure reading. It seems to be accurate. I can’t comment on the long term durability but it’s keeping it stored in a safe place inside the case without the batteries inside of the unit, will prolong the unit. For ease of use, this monitor gets a five star rating.
