1) Omron 10 Series Wireless Bluetooth Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

Although a little pricey, you’re surely getting what you paid for.

I say this because unlike other machines, this monitor can store the readings of 2 people.

All you need to do is select the right user mode.

In addition, the Omron 10 Series saves 200 readings and is compatible with Alexa through a wireless Bluetooth.

What excites me most is the ability to pair the machine with your smartphone, therefore having access to unlimited readings.

PS: Omron has a free app which is available at Google Play and the App store.

2) Blood Pressure Monitor by Vive Precision.

This monitor is similar to the Omron 10 Series in that it can store the readings of 2 people separately.

However, Vive Precision saves up to 500 measurements.

It’s also backed by a 2-year warranty and contains a user’s manual.

It comes in 2 colors (black, and silver).

The only disadvantage is that it doesn’t contain a case for easy transportation.

 

3) Greater Goods Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff Kit by Balance

The unique aspect of the Greater Goods monitor is that it comes with two power sources, i.e batteries, and an AC adapter.

Also, the color coding (green, yellow, orange, red) beside the screen makes it easy to know if your BP is high or not… AWESOME 😁

This monitor comes with a bag (a plus).

4)Care Touch Fully Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure Cuff Monitor

For those who hate the feeling of inflated cuffs squeezing on the upper arm, this monitor is ideal for you.

Batteries and a user manual are included with the purchase.

PS: You need to strictly follow instructions on the user manual, if not, your readings will be inaccurate.

For instance, you need to ensure that the wristband doesn’t move freely on your wrist.

So, you can move it a little up your arm.

You also need to ensure that the screen of your monitor is on the inner part of your wrist.

In addition, take the measurements when you have rested for close to 5 minutes.

Lastly, elevate your wrist at the same level as your heart by bending your elbow or placing your forearm across your chest.

 

5) Care Touch Blood Pressure Monitor – Fully Automatic Upper Arm Digital BP Cuff

I know you thought that I made an error and repeated #4… I also go confused there for a moment.

Anyway, this monitor is the same brand with the Care Touch Wrist Monitor except that it contains an upper arm cuff.

Batteries and AC Adapter are also included.

It can store 2 people’s readings separately, saves the last 250 readings for each person, and averages the last 3 readings for each person.

In addition, the results take only about a minute to be displayed.

This monitor is guaranteed effective for at least 1-year.

6) Balance Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor

This is by far the cheapest BP monitor I found online.

It stores 2 people’s readings separately and has a 2-year warranty.

This monitor is easy to use and easy to read ( large LCD screen).

Like the Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff Kit by Balance, this monitor also displays the color coding (green, yellow, orange, and red) beside the screen, which makes it easier to know if your BP is within normal range.

This monitor comes in a small bag with draw-strings.

7)Bluetooth Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff by GreaterGoods

This Bluetooth cuff monitor can be paired with any device.

Its app (Balance Health) synchronizes the monitor with your device presenting a history of your measurements.

This makes it easy for you to track your blood pressure changes instead of the “traditional book and pen jotting”.

It alerts when an irregular heartbeat or a low/high BP is detected.

This monitor stores 2 people’s readings separately and saves the last 120 readings for each person.

Right now, there is A LIGHTENING DEAL.

8) Omron 3 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

This machine fits all sizes of arms and has very accurate readings. It can save up to 60 readings.

A package contains 1 wide-range cuff and an instruction manual.

PS: Please endeavor to READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL prior to using it in order to enable optimum readings.

It’s also easy to use. By just pressing a single button, all your blood pressure readings and your pulse are displayed on the screen.

This BP Monitor doesn’t come with a case as others do. So, you will need to purchase it separately.

9) Omron 7-Series Wrist Monitor

Unlike the Omron 3-series arm monitor, the Omron 7-series wrist monitor saves up to 100 readings.

Obviously, a later version will be more expensive.

It averages and displays the last 3 readings obtained in the last 10 minutes.

Alerting to irregular heartbeats including results outside the normal BP range is the unique feature of this monitor.

Contained in the package is the monitor including a storage case, instruction manual, and 2 batteries.

10) Panasonic EW3109W Portable Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

The readings of most blood pressure monitors disappear as soon as the monitor is turned off, but this is not the case with the

Panasonic EW3109W Monitor. This monitor saves up to 90 readings and tracks them as time progresses.

It has a large LCD screen display suitable for even a blind man to read… LOL, just kidding.

The monitor notifies you by blinking whenever the readings are too high or too low.

It comes in a soft case providing comfort for transportation.

Moreover, it only weighs 1.63 lbs (very insignificant).

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

          In a nutshell, there are several blood pressure monitors on the market, but just a handful of them are effective in monitoring BP.

Which of them did you like?

  1. Hi Pearl, It’s important to check your blood pressure and often too. It’s an affordable expense that is necessary. Most people just wait and get their blood pressure checked at the doctor’s office. Everyone should have their own monitor and check their pressure at home or on the go. I like the fact that you have many to choose from. Thanks for a very informative review!

    1. Thanks Rob.
      I agree with you that most people only check their BP at the doctor’s office, which is very wrong.
      Then when they are rushed to the hospital because of it, they argue that their BP rose all of a sudden.
      Whereas it was their duty to monitor their health and report it to the doctor before it becomes too late.
      I hope that many people will take charge of their health right now and do something beneficial for themselves.

  2. Hi Pearl! Great informative review! Which one would you recommend? I was thinking #3 and #7 look pretty much the same just different name brand. And #3 doesn’t have a Bluetooth

  3. Hi Pearl,
    Wow! Some great information on BP monitor equipment. Strange that I never really considered the improvements and upgrades you have for these monitors. We still use the older, single readings and the journal records.
    #1 , the Omron 10 Series Wireless Bluetooth Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor caught my attention. I like the smartphone use, a quick way to be able to track BP. Thanks for a great article and getting me into a more BP monitor upgrade mindset!

    1. Hi Sanders,
      I’m happy to learn that you found the post helpful.
      And yes, we all need to upgrade from using journal records to track our BP history.
      If you’re more interested in wireless BP monitors, take a look at #7.
      It’s more cheaper and has an ongoing lightening deal where you can save up to 25%.
      I don’t know how long this deal will last, so don’t hesitate to grab the opportunity.

  4. My wife has to use BP monitors from time to time because of some health issues. I believe she has number 8, the Omron 3, and it seems to work really well. I never knew that there were Bluetooth ones. I guess there is really an app for everything!

    1. HAHAAHA, Dan I agree with you.
      Tracking your BP using an app is very efficient compared to the regular “journal entry”.
      And yes, it seems there are apps for everything.
      Apps make monitoring your BP “EASY BRIZZY”.

  5. What a great article, I did not know there are so many types of devices to measure the blood pressure. I only get my blood pressure measured by the doctor and it is always good.
    I think I will try to get one and monitor my blood pressure regularly.

    1. Monitoring your BP is always a good idea.
      I personally have one at home right now.
      When you get one, i’d love to get feedback from you on how the monitor is performing.

  6. So many great choices! I do like #1 Omron 10 Series Wireless Bluetooth Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor being wireless and able to link up with Alexa. Then there is the Balance Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor which may be perfect for travelers, looks like it is quite portable. In the end, I would likely go with #1 with all the features. Thanks for the excellent list and descriptions, look forward to seeing more articles.

    1. Great to know you loved #1. My dad uses it too. That’s why I placed it as #1.
      If there are any topics you will like me to write about, don’t hesitate to let me know 🙂

      1. Good to know your dad is already using Omron 10 Series Wireless Bluetooth Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor as well. It would be great if you can write about diabetes monitors.
        Thanks

  7. Excellent article! I always thought that blood pressure monitors were high and expensive until I needed to buy one myself. After having my last child my blood pressure was out of control. I found out that unless it is life treating most insurance companies do not pay for the device so, I automatically assumed that I would be paying skyrocketed prices but, to my surprise, the blood pressure machine that I did not cost that much. In fact, it is around the amount that you have listed in this article. It is something similar to the Panasonic EW3109W Monitor. I think if anyone is concerned about their blood pressure, a blood pressure monitor is a great investment. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for sharing Lakisha.
      I’m so sorry to hear that you had pregnancy-related blood pressure (Eclampsia).
      I know, I know, some insurance companies can be disappointing. Life itself sometimes is disappointing, but that doesn’t mean we should give up.
      I’m glad you already purchased the Panasonic EW3109W Monitor.
      One shouldn’t have to purchase the expensive BP monitors when there are affordable and effective ones here 🙂

  8. I don’t have high blood pressure, in fact just the opposite. My blood pressure tends to be on the very low side. So I have to monitor it to make sure it does not get too low. I have been thinking about getting a blood pressure monitor for home. Right now I run down to the drug store and check it there. Which one do you think is going to be the most accurate and easiest to use? I want one that give good accurate results, but is also not too complicated.

    1. Low Blood Pressure? Not very common, but still needs to be monitored.
      I will always recommend the BP my dad uses (#1 on the list)
      Because he’s not the typical man who loves technology (if you know what I mean 🙂 )
      Basically, he loves less complicated technology, which is exactly what you’re searching for.
