Seems like a good deal to me.

I saw this exact same product on a tv shopping channel last night for £16:99 + P&P

Lloyds pharmacy do these and are also £9.99. Maybe more convenient for anyone that doesn't have a Lidl nearby.

I think this is a wrist monitor so isn't as accurate as the one that goes over your upper arm

Not sure how accurate that statement is, as I know of some excellent wrist monitors - this may not be one of them, but there are some which are arguably more accurate than the upper arm ones (as not everyone uses them correctly)

This is an urban myth :thumbsup:

OK I have looked a bit deeper into this and stand corrected

Not according to the British Hypertension Society it isn't. I can't comment on whether it makes a significant difference or not though...

We purchased one of these last time Lidl had them on offer. It is totally unreliable and produces vastly different readings even when left in the same position on the wrist. You can take your blood pressure three times on the run and get three wildly varying results. TBH, I wouldn't recommend this device and ours just sits in the cupboard unused.

My brother has one from Aldi which has a more conventional upper arm collar attached to the device by a flexible pipe. It is much more consistent in the readings. If you take my advice, don't bother with this current Lidl offer.

I should have said that I was talking more in the region of the £60 versions, I think you get what you pay for were these are concerned.

Cant imagine this is that accurate at the price. If you need one not worth taking hte chance.

Agreed, the upper arm ones are generally more reliable, when did you last see a Doctor use a wrist one ???;-)

Wrist ones are useless. I bought for my gran 2 years ago and it kept showings readings well below normal but when she got it checked at her surgery, it was sky high and then we rechecked the same day and still it shows as normal. Just threw it in bin, will look out for a good deal on the upper arm one.

That mirrors our experiences exactly.

The one my brother got from Aldi was £20 and uses the upper arm collar. The results are reliable and consistant and largely coincide with his pressure readings taken at the doctors.

I got one of these from a Lidl sale a while back. Accurate it is not, so now it's in a drawer somewhere and batteries are powering one of my remotes
Like everyone here, I'm always looking out for deals - but when it comes to my health, items like this one are just junk. Spend the extra money and get a recognized brand (a proper monitor should last many years)
I got the Omron HEM-780 while in Canada (Costco offer: $80-90CDN I think?), I've never been dubious of a reading. If you're bothering to monitor your blood pressure, then it's worth paying the extra £ - imo
