Info from the company:
~~CardioTech products offer clinically proven technology and are used by physicians and hospitals around the world. Unlike traditional blood pressure monitors that inflate to 170 mmHg or higher by default, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is an advanced wrist cuff monitor with MWI (Measure While Inflate) technology that automatically inflates to the appropriate level (no adjustments required) while reducing measurement time. This advanced capability adds convenience and ease of use to those with conditions (such as arrhythmia) that lead to fluctuating blood pressure. With ample memory, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor stores up to 180 blood pressure readings with date and time Memory recall (90 readings x 2 users), and automatically classifies each blood pressure reading according to World Health Organization hypertension guidelines. It also calculates average blood pressure readings based on the 3 most recent readings, and detects irregular heart (Arrhythmia) for an improved understanding of your heart's health. Based on a wrist cuff design, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is especially helpful for users with above average arm sizes and it stores compactly in a carrying case for travel. Compact, portable and simple-to-use, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is backed by a 5 year warranty, and ships with 2 AAA batteries included, a carrying case and user manual.
I've always used the blood pressure cuffs that go onto the arm. This is the first time using a wrist blood pressure cuff. I am finding that I use this more frequently just because it's smaller and less work to get out and put away.
It comes with te required 2 AAA batteries which is awesome. The display is large and easy to read. Once you set up the initial date/time settings, using it is so incredibly simple.
wrap the velcro strap around your wrist with the display facing you. There is a diagram on the side that shows the angle you should hold your arm. Then just press the on button and it will begin. There is an option to pick between 2 different users and the results are stored into memory. The memory will display the readout and date/time it was taken. It also includes a display of the average of your saved readouts.
I really like that it comes in it's own plastic storage container. It's much smaller than my arm cuff reader and is great for on-the-go.
High blood pressure runs in my family, so I do check mine often. Knock on something it has been in the green.
I did receive this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
