Since I've been traveling more lately, I decided that it would be nice to get a compact blood pressure machine that would be easy to pack in my suitcase. I was shopping in Tuesday Morning and saw an incredible deal on their Health Pro Compact Wristwatch Blood Pressure Monitor. It retailed for $49.99 but was on sale for $19.99. Now that's a deal!
I like it fairly well. It is a little awkward keeping it on my wrist, since the entire machine is being held there, and not just the cuff, like my larger machine. The strap is a little large, and so I have to keep adjusting it to get it tight enough. It is easy to use, and the numbers are large enough and dark enough to read easily. It also takes your pulse, and has a memory feature, as well as the date and time. The memory stores up to 60 readings. Once the machine is on the wrist properly, it only requires the push of one button to get it started. (I do get an error message more often than I'd like though.)
It has a really nice storage case to protect the unit, when not in use. It operates on 2 AAA batteries. I think that I will enjoy using it, but it will take some checking against my other machine (which is quite reliable) to determine if it is accurate. I'll let you know in an update.
