One of the unfortunate side effects of an extremely stressful life, for me, has been high blood pressure. Losing weight did not help. Medication and monitoring are the only way for me to keep it under control. I have also been working on reducing and managing my stress, but that’s a story for another day.
My previous blood pressure monitor was a cheap wrist model which always read way lower than the doctor’s office. So I was excited to test out the Ozeri CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Intelligent Hypertension Indicator.
Powered by a state-of-the-art CPU that utilizes a double pulse detection algorithm to enhance pulse wave detection, thereby improving accuracy.
Features a Blue LCD with LED backlight, touch sensitive buttons, and a slider switch for easy user selection (stores 120 blood pressure readings with date and time recordings for 2 users).
Advanced one-step operation with fully automatic inflation and dynamic measurement technology that adjusts the cuff inflation according to real-time blood pressure detection to reduce measurement time and increase user comfort.
Automatic Irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) detection and Hypertension indicator using an intelligent graphical display.
Push-button access to average blood pressure reading and clock, date & time stamp for each blood pressure reading.
I love how easy this monitor is to use. I had it up and running in less than 5 minutes with the easy-to-read instruction manual. The monitor is battery operated, but you can also buy an optional A/C power adapter. I like that it will store readings for 2 different people, so Art can monitor his blood pressure also.
Most importantly, I believe that the Ozeri monitor was very accurate. I took my blood pressure and pulse for a week, using both the wrist monitor and the Ozeri CardioTech Premium. Here are the results:

As you can see, there was a significant difference in readings, although they were taken at the same time and with my arm elevated above my heart. I am very impressed with the Ozeri CardioTech Premium and feel it would be a wonderful tool for anyone who needs to monitor their blood pressure on a regular basis.
To purchase one of your own or for more information, you can check out the Ozerio CardioTech Premium Series digital blood pressure monitor on Amazon.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
