Horrible and unreliable
on July 24, 2010
I wanted a little BP monitor and the price on this was good. I guess you get what you pay for. You have to keep your arm in exactly the position shown to get an "accurate" reading. Unfortunately based on the diagram, this position is somewhat up for interpretation. For example, I took my BP and it was 189/101, I took it again right away and it was 134/90 and then again and it was 113/64 and again and it was 150/80. My normal BP at the doctors is 110/80. Each time I thought I was in position but I was just a little off. I found by adjusting my arm up or down just an inch or two I could create a HUGE fluctuation in my BP reading. The problem with this of course is that there is no way to determine what is actually an accurate reading.
I returned it.
