Health is the greatest wealth!
Very high or very low blood pressure can be the cause of many health problems which is why this is often the first thing tested on a visit to your local GP.
I'm having trouble adding a direct link link , just a copy of the instore Monthly Lidl New letter (not their usual leaflets) which I photographed and linked here
Anyway I've been hankering after a Bluetooth SMART scales and Bluetooth SMART Blood pressure Monitor. Aldi offered both devices some weeks ago but were still expensive
Fortunately I held fire each time I walked past the display cabinet in my local Aldi in the the hope they’d go down in price.
Luckily Lidl have just announced in the October issue of their newspaper they're going to be offering on 5th October Smart diagnostic Scales & Smart Upper Arm Blood Pressure monitors at £19.99 each. Very cheap considering they are bluetooth enabled and can sync with your phone to track your health metrics . It doesn’t end there. The compatible Sanitas Health Coach app pools other info including the all important quality of sleep.
I would imagine with time the Sanitas Cuff might even assess HRV (variance in heart beat to beat interval - a good predictor of day to day fitness /readiness). HRV assessment tech has been around a while but looks set to be the next big thing in wearables metrics as folks trend toward greater fitness accuracy
Anyway used on their own without the app the smart scales would provide awareness of body fat , water ratio, muscle and bone mass to help maintain a healthy body weight , Likewise the Blood pressure monitor would work on it’s own
Thus just the devices’ on their own are good value for money. The incorporated SMART Technology facilitates syncing the info with the phone & with the Sanitas health coach app which then aids in keeping a graphical timeline of all changes
For comparison the Aldi Scales in my local are still £35 with the Blood pressure monitor still priced at £40

Great deal! Thanks!

Great deal! Thanks!


Just glad to share!
it's about as useful as all the other apps about to measure your health. usually used by folk at least five stones overweight that eat too many pork pies and McDs and pretend they don't.

so it's to make people feel good because 'at least they are trying'.

That's very kind of you.................not

How would you like to be stereotyped? shall we start with troll?

I was looking at this for someone who has been physically fit their whole life and is not over weight but last year suffered from Atrial Fibrillation and had it corrected 8 months later to then suffer a heart attack and this was fixed with a stent and they also have a secondary illness called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome since the heart condition manifested - this person is on low income and has asked me to keep my eyes open for any bargains regarding blood pressure and heart rate monitors

I will gladly pass on your thoughts to them that it must be because they are fat/obese

Sounds like a voice of regret, with a bin full of pork pie wrappers.

​Bet you've got an ass the size of your mouth
does anyone know what the word 'usually' means ?

fwiw ...yes, once upon a time I was a fat b'stard however I knew I was. I didn't try to pretend I wasn't or that it wasn't how many curries I ate and beer I drank. however, you see loads wobbling along when it's warm and dry out in the summer. how many when it's cold ? possibly three in an hour. When it's raining, usually one or none.

so how did I lose weight ? I stopped being a greedy couch potato.

so maybe suggest they get a pulse monitor ? they really don't need all this bluetooth connection or the app.

So the person has heart concerns and a secondary illness that appears you've not bothered to research -- hmmm so I will try to educate you a little more

The heart rate and blood pressure monitor is the basics (and @ £20 it's a good deal) but

What happens when a fairly active person becomes restricted in their every day life?

Now you've considered the answer

The scales are an added bonus to help this individual and if they already have scales... does it really matter

And the app/bluetooth - isn't that how devices talk to each other in this modern day?

The point of my first comment is you shouldn't stereotype - I'm assuming there will be several people without illness who will also purchase this

maybe, just maybe think a bit ?

you often see deals on here for blood pressure monitors. asda were doing one for £3.75 and Lloyds pharmacy frequently do them for £5-£10. Check here for usability ... bhsoc.org//in…246 .

So what does this give you extra for it to cost £20 ?, an app and bluetooth which is meaningless and some scales.

you seem hung up on my stereotype. I have, at no stage, suggested that your friend is any stereotype. I have been suggesting that this is pretty useless really and for fat people who probably do fit the stereotype.
ohh, btw.... the app gets 3.1 out of 5 here... play.google.com/sto…ach 25 people out of 80 gave it 1 star.

it is unrated on itunes.
If I'm not mistaken the offer is £19 for ONE item so it's actually £38 for both on this 'deal'.

not at all I just thought I would clarify that bluetooth is costing £10-£15 on this item as they usually cost £5-10 at the chemists without it. Of course the app is free.
Have bought these but problems with password set ups and no ICT support is working. Anyone else??
For those that have purchased these two items and are having a few problems linking the bluetooth or setting up, you are not alone. I too was having problems.with the "healthcoach" software. In the end, after trying numerous phones, including iphone 4s and a couple on android , I purchased a £25 vodaphone smart first 6 ( offered as a hot deal here) and all the software setup and linking of bluetooth to the phone went very smoothly. I was told by customer services at Sanitas that the bluetooth smart system is only available with the later iphones and with android 4.3 or greater. Hope this helps
