It is an essential part of healthy living to regularly check your blood pressure. This Samsung Digital Blood Pressure Monitor is an effective and accurate method of keeping tract of your blood pressure. I purchased this wrist monitor at my local supermarket for 79.00 dollars. It is fairly compact and very easy to use. Since it is a wrist monitor, the proper way to use this product would be to sit down with both feet firmly planted on the ground. Then wrap the cuff securly on your left wrist with palm upward at about the same level of your heart. Press the start button and the blood pressure measurements will automatically be monitored. I like the velcro wrist cuff because it offers a snug fit. I also like the recall button so that I can compare the previous reading to the current reading. The inside of the case shows the normal, high normal and Hypertension readings so that we know where we stand with our own personal readings. There is a plastic see through cover on this unit. If you need to monitor your daily blood pressure readings, then it is very easy to take this with you wherever you need to go. Taking your own blood pressure readings gives you a very good idea of how your health is doing. I wouldn't be without it.
