Compared to the Omron 786n, this feels slightly more solid. It has a better hose connection to the device with some sort of metal jacket at the end of the hose that connects more securely than on the Omron which uses a plastic connector. The cuff on this device also feels more sturdy. It feels like the velcro will last longer. However, the Omron cuff is preformed and easier to put on. This one takes a bit more dexterity to apply but is not difficult. This cuff inflates more gently than the Omron, which sometimes has left red impressions on my arm. The Welch Allyn almost always measures your BP during inflation and thus faster than the Omron. Omron always measures during deflation, which can at times be very tight (and perhaps painful to some). This meter only measures during deflation if it can't get a read during inflation.
The rub is in the app and data review, however. The Omron app is simply superior. With the Omron device, you can take up to 100 readings per user (the Welch Allyn does not support multiple users), and you can review the readings on the device itself (you cannot do this on the Welch Allyn). With the Omron, can choose to sync to the monitor's readings to the app at any time. With the Welch Allyn, it syncs if you have the app open and the phone awake while taking a measurement. If you had taken measurements while away from your phone, they will sync while taking another measurement and keeping the phone awake and the app open (I confirmed with their tech support it will record up to 99 readings that you can later sync--but again you cannot review those on the device itself, and there is no sync button; you have to take another measurement in order to get older measurements to sync over). The Omron app lets you sync to the cloud, and you can view all of your data on Omron's web-site or by logging into the app on any device. This data has been amazingly helpful. It shows you charts of your systolic, diastolic, and pulse, and you can view averages over days, weeks, months, and years. It's simply a fantastic web-site and app. By comparison, you can view your data in the Welch Allyn app, but it doesn't sync to the cloud. You can manually export it if you wish. Some people don't like their data in the cloud, but I find it helpful.
If I could merge the physical hardware of the Welch Allyn with the app, web-service, and on-device review ability of the Omron, I would. The Welch Allyn is simply gentler on your arm, and it feels like it's very solidly made.
As for accuracy, the two measured comparably to each other. I've had doctors tell me before that my Omron tends to measure a bit higher than what they read, and the Welchy Allyn at times measured a smidge lower than the Omron in head to head comparisons. I can't really speak to the accuracy though as I haven't tested both side by side in a doctor's office.
This would not be a great device for someone who wants to take measurements and review them on the device only. If you don't use a smartphone, your only ability to review results would be to write them down somewhere.
I vacillated about how many stars to give because this is a really comfortable monitor and seems very solid. But for what I've come to expect with app performance and cloud storage, it falls a bit short. All the areas I mentioned not liking are ones Welch Allyn could easily improve, and I hope they do.
Unfortunately it is all too easy to crank out a low-cost BP machine, so naturally the market is crowded with pretenders. Most of the units I have encountered are variations on the same theme. They could well all be made in the same Gulag in China and just labeled with different brands. This unit is a thing of beauty. It is solidly built, with a quick-disconnect coupling between the cuff and the main unit. The main panel has a clear, simple display with a single button to take a reading. Once the initial bluetooth setup is complete, you don the cuff, turn on the app, and hit the button. The unit takes a reading, updates the app with the latest reading, and turns itself off.
The firmware that runs this unit is pretty sweet. As another reviewer pointed out, the motor doesn't just spin up to full blast while inflating the cuff; instead, it spins up and down, carefully listening and feeling its way along. Readings are very very repeatable. I have seen some interesting variations in the way it takes readings, so there is obviously more subtlety than your average BP machine. It appears to have been engineered by a team that understands not only product design, but the art of taking blood pressure as well. That latter aspect is what makes it a worthwhile purchase.
The iPhone app itself is very clean, intuitive and usable. It has a charting function that shows you trends over days, weeks, months. years.
Yes, it is priced a little higher than the average BP unit, but it is worth every penny. I recommend this unit highly.
As a physician, I use Welch Allyn products every day (ophthalmoscope, thermometer, etc) and had high expectations for this product. It's easy to use, easy to read... but gives inconsistent and VERY inaccurate readings. HUGE differences taken just within minutes of each other. I compared it to a manual sphygmomanometer and to another automatic BP cuff that gives reliable readings.
