Yes - the arm ones are generally more accurate than wrist ones and if you use this at home regularly it might avoid the "white coat" effect ie your blood pressure goes up because you're worried about the doc/nurse taking your bp....

im sure they had this on qvc the other night on special for about £40 tempted then lucky i waited ordered mine

Couldn't stop laughing, below the monitor is a Deal of the week for a Doughnut Maker.....hmmm maybe lay off the donuts with this

me too seems right tohave one in the house

Which model is this ?

hmm, interesting, the regular price for the omron m2 on amazon is about 14 quids, so i would say this is a fair price but not too amazing, still voted hot but have to say i'd rather pay a bit more to amazon than using the hut, terrible website according to the past.

Wow - fabulous deal and super price - thank you shadow1 for posting X) Ordered. Heat.

£27.60 on Amazon

BTW, this BP monitor isn't approved by the British Hypertension Society. Is that bad?

Is there any particular reason to have a blood pressure monitor at home?

If you're concerned about your blood pressure (?) you'll need to see a ("free") doc anyway.

I got mine checked out for free from my employer and a visiting nurse - many large companies or public sector employers use a visiting medic that you can approach for any medical concerns...There was a very highly publicised blood pressure campaign quite recently.

Not voting either way.

There's no point having one if it's inaccurate.

blood pressure changes all the time thats why you have to take 3 readings and find the average so how you can test of supreme accuracy is beyond me and i notice in that one review its still in the top ten also it has a lifetime warranty and found that Blood pressure monitors require recalibration on average every two years. HoMedics' exclusive recalibration technology allows consumers to send their monitors to HoMedics for recalibration service

Good find, ordered, thanks.

Is it just me or does the name HoMedics conjure up images of bootychicks in nurses outfits?

ordered for my father,thank you.

Totally agree.Get one that is clinically approved.I have the Omron M2 basic which cost under £14 from Amazon.Same make as the one used by the nurse at my doctors.

Super hot, if they don't actually cancel the order due to OOS

Thanks! Ordered!

Maybe it isn't accurate but that review would be a bit more believable if it was from a creditable site and say how they actually tested them. Have a look at the contact details...or in fact any of the other sections of the site. Some of the user reviews on the internet do seem to confirm it can be unreliable.

In fact the review on the bloodpressure monitor site is probably based on this user review from Amazon (which was actually for a different wrist band model)

I don't get consistent or accurate readings. Have checked with supplier to make sure I understand instructions and have followed written instructions to the letter, BUT....I have double checked it 7-8 times at 2 doctor's offices and twice with the local firestation/emt, and in all cases this unit has consistently been 15-20 points higher than the others. The doctors/emt recommend that I get one with an upper arm cuff because they have a larger measuring area than the typically small wrist types. We shall see. I may have gotten a defective unit, but Amazon was great with my return.
There are other reviews on Amazon that say it is inconsistant.

Is it accurate? Maybe maybe not but thanks for the heads up........

Aldi did some uppper arm BP monitors a while back. I've seen them for sale reduced down to £9.99 in several Leicester stores. Bought one about a week ago for a family member. Good for the money and seems to give consistent results which we think are about right.

There is a British Hypertension Society validated machine for a similar price tag - Omron MX2 - much better buy

Thanks - ordered one

Here the link for all BHS validated machines - or you can of course choose to save 2 quid and buy an unreliable machine. Or maybe a random number generator for a fiver from DealExtreme

Even that has 1 or 2 reviews complaining about accuracy but Omron are one of the main manufacturers of blood pressure monitors and as its BHS approved, I'd agree that probably is a better one to go for. There are several sellers on Amazon all about the £15 mark......

Yeah but they're not very accurate either - they never come up with the number I want it to come up with

A word of caution.
I bought one from Lidl which gave consistent readings.
Took it to the doctors and found it was reading too low giving a false impression.

The American HoMedic site says:

Doesn't this make it OK?

The equivalent US model has good reviews on the site as well. US HoMedics Site

I've ordered one but the comments here are making me worry that I should cancel and get the Omron, stressing me out...my blood pressure is rising lol.

As another poster has mentioned, readings taken at your doctors can be artificially high due to "white coat syndrome", hence if you have one at home and take readings regularly you'll get a more accurate representation of the true figure.

That said, if you are going to buy a BP monitor, check with your doctor as the best make to buy. Mine recommended the Omron M2, which you can pick up from Amazon for £14 and is the same model my surgery uses. I'm not sure about the accuracy of Homedics products.

As other people have said, these things need recalibration every so often. Ours was really good once, but I recently checked my pressure and it was 155/115, checked again, it was higher!! Then I started to feel numbness in my arm..... thought I was having a heart attack!! Booked in to docs and even with "white coat syndrome" my readings were borderline normal/high, she spoke to me for a bit about family etc (never had that!) which without me knowing took my mind off it, then she retested, perfect!!! I asked her if I could try my own machine that I'd taken with me, 150/115, she advised me to bin it!!! Only words of warning, Im sure these are fine but you do have to be mindfull of their shortcomings

well it sold out so must have been a good deal

Order Cancelled
We are sorry to advise that your order for HoMedics Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is no longer available at our suppliers

I received mine this morning, and i had my BP taken at dr only last week, used this machine a few times today, and all the readings are similer, so the accuracy id say is spot on.
