I received my Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Operation & Intelligent Hypertension Indicator as payment for my review.
I received this item from business2blogger.com. The opinions expressed are entirely my own.
The Ozeri BP5K is a neat little package. I applied for the review job because I have a history of hypertension, which I control with blood pressure medications. Despite this, I am sometimes in excellent control, while at other times, I struggle. I’m not sure why. Anyway, I wanted a reliable way to monitor my BP at home, without having to rely on anyone else to take it for me.
The BP5K is wildly simple to use, plus it has an internal memory that will keep track of your last 180 readings, OR 90 readings for each of two people. There’s a button you can use to toggle between users. This is helpful, as Beth’s BP is always low-normal, while mine fluctuates.
I took my BP a few times, and then went to work (I work at a hospital) for a comparison study. This unit gave me a reading that was very similar to the one I got using hospital quality instrumentation, administered by professionals. If that’s not endorsement enough, I’m not sure what is.
I attached a video of me using the device. My BP isn’t usually that high, but I’m attributing half of it to my wife giving me the hairy eyeball during my filming, and also the HUGE helping of salty leftover stuffing I had for lunch.
1. simplicity of use
2. quality of performance (as good as medical grade equipment)
3. the neat British voice.
5. affordable ($43)
1. it took what seemed like a long time to take my reading
2. it can sometimes be tricky getting your wrist into just the right position
3. there’s no volume control for the voice – she’s pretty loud!
I’m glad to have mine, and am pleased to recommend this product to you.
