After first starting to use it earlier this year, I had some concerns about its accuracy especially when using it in TrueRead mode where it takes and then averages 3 BP measurements at 1-minute intervals. Personally, I don't find taking repeat BP measurements at such short time intervals to be all that good an idea and much prefer to use the unit in the standard mode of just taking a single measurement at a time. When doing so, this blood pressure monitor has been spot-on with respect to its accuracy when I have compared the readings taken with those obtained at a doctor's office just a little bit later on the very same day.
The overall feature set of this device is impressive and very worthwhile for the user. It provides 10 main benefits: calibration check system, cuff wrap guide, ComFit cuff, two user mode, TrueRead (mentioned above), AM/PM averaging, irregular heartbeat detector (AFib - atrial fibrillation), BP level indicator, AC adapter and 200 memory storage.
My own personal favorites - and very likely the most frequently used features - are the two-user mode and the 200-reading memory functionality. And the irregular heartbeat detector is something that could provide you with an advance warning some day of otherwise undetectable atrial fibrillation; a condition which can kill you if left untreated (increased risk of stroke, etc.).
Since this is an automated cuff monitor which gets wrapped around the upper arm, there is never any problem of the device not being at heart level during use. This is potentially a not insignificant problem of the much more expensive and bulky "Panasonic EW3153W Cuffless Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Wireless Display" (see my review).
The "Omron 7 Series Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor" (see my review) which takes readings at the wrist uses an automated system of orange and blue lights to indicate when the device is at heart level and thus ready to take a proper measurement.
If the ComFit cuff which easily adjusts for a varying circumference of the upper arm in different users ever needs replacement, this should be an extremely easy and not all that expensive undertaking (simply unplug the old cuff and plug in the new one - easy as pie). Cuff replacement with a wrist BP monitor such as the Omron 7 series mentioned above is a problematic task which will in every case require that the device be returned to the factory. And it is relatively expensive when compared to the overall price of just simply buying a brand new BP monitor.
All things considered - including the modest price of about $60.00 and the 5-year limited manufacturer's warranty - this Omron BP785 10 Series Upper Arm BP Monitor is currently by far the best option available for hermits and non-hermits alike and I bestow upon it my heartfelt eremitical blessing - highly recommended.
Updated: I received the replacement, which worked fine the first time and gave errors after that. I reached Omron customer service VERY quickly, but it turns out that in order for it to work reliably, the cuff must be tight enough that you cannot get one finger under it. My arm is 10" and in order to get it on that tight, I need my husband to hold it in place REALLY tightly, while I wind the velcro closure on. The whole idea was to be able to do it myself.
Moral of the story: If you have larger arms, I'd imagine that it'll probably work just fine. If you're on the smaller side, plan on needing help. I'll be looking for a blood pressure monitor which uses the D-ring cuff that I am able to apply by myself. There aren't many.
I now use this unit every day along with my new digital scale I purchased.
I have used this unit to keep a log and track my readings so that I could compare results when I went back to the doctor's office. I was disappointed at the high readings at my doctor's. Here I had recorded such great numbers by using my machine at home only to find out the readings at the doctor's office told another tale...25 to 30 points higher than any of my recordings. At first I tried to attribute it to the possibility of white coat hypertension...elevated readings caused just by being at the doctor's office. I stewed for a few days and decided to go down to the drug store and purchase a manual blood pressure kit...you now the inexpensive kind that you pump up...release the pressure and listen as you watch the gauge. This less than twenty dollars manual kit gave me readings that were more in line in what my doctor's readings were...readings withing 2-5 points rather than 25-30 points lower as was the average with my Omron kit.
After the lengthy time period I have been using the machine, I don't expect any reaction from the company but the performance, or lack of, over these months has caused me to change my evaluation and dismiss this machine for its lack of reliability. No one should base any health evaluation on home monitors but you should at least be able to maintain a fairly accurate idea of blood pressure and pulse readings when using a system like this. It may just be this unit but this one will go in the closet along with the other shoulda, coulda, woulda gadgets that didn't live up to expectations. The disappointment is an understatement!
