I agree with LetoKynes. Upper arm is more accurate.
Agreed, whilst this is miles more convenient, it's also not as accurate. It not worth it especially if you actually need a proper one. Cheap ones (yes it's double the price, but bear with me) can be had that can connect to your mobile and upload your readings to keep track of pressure over days. Including letting you know if you have any arrhythmia. I would take blood pressure very seriously, it's called the silent killer for a reason. Buying one also helps you take occasional readings for your other half, or other loved ones.
Generally I'd suggest sticking with the upper arm ones. This is a good page for reference:- https://bihsoc.org/bp-monitors/for-home-use/

I noticed the price change earlier and bought for my mum. Even though it only holds last measurement in memory, I liked the fact it had the irregular heart detection feature which the Boots brand at £19.99 didn’t have.
This is good for ladies, as for gents arms is to tight , returned my one and got with bigger size band

Yes. Biceps is more accurate but this comes very close . I would compare and send it back if inaccurate
True but omron one is clinically validated and if you have a arm one compare it. It should be same but much quicker .
This is clinically validated Some of others are inaccurate
I use the Boots omron one. I discovered I had high blood pressure a while ago after a docs visit and been told not to go near a wrist monitor as can be very unreliable. Bought the boots omron one, changed my lifestyle (exercise, cut out alcohol, and changed high salt diet) and monitored daily to begin with and it came down within a few weeks (not right away which was disheartening!). Still use the Boots one I have regularly just to keep an eye on it. Anyway, point is, having one of these at home is definitely worthwhile (maybe the bicep version though). I'd highly recommend the Boots one, been posted here a few times for around £20, which is about what I paid for mine and thought that was a regular price (the Boots one is the Omron m2 Classic just rebranded, the M2 is quite a bit more expensive).
What's the RRP? States 19.99 on the website but not sure if that is RRP
Had one of these for a while, between lockdowns I had to go for my annual check up they checked my bp on their machine and then on this only 2% out (nurse's figure) so was happy with me carrying on using this, excellent at this price, especially if you can collect in store.
I have this one It’s a Omron m2 basic with 30 memory reading- ok price if you are able to go into shop but not so if delivered. I don’t use the memory so no advantage over M2 basic for me and can get on prime for much less at the right time. Accuracy wise, although it’s basically Omron when compared to my M2 basic I would say not quite as accurate, but I often switch between the two as with all these machines (no matter what the price) they do go out of calibration over time.
I have this , good basic machine. Yes the cuff isn't a large one but fit's me ok and it's definitely omron.
These are exactly the same as the ones you can get on eBay unbranded for around £8, except with the speaking function. That might be of use to you, but otherwise you can save a lot of money. They are accurate enough, my GP accepts readings from my eBay one so I don't have to go in for the nurse to do it. I'm sure someone will come and complain about the CE mark in a moment but ignore the racism, these work great.
11.1% Topcashback? Perhaps won't pay out because of the code but it has tracked.

Currently in Lidl on special buys for £19.99. I bought this to compliment upper arm one & this is one though easy to use, I find readings are all over the place! So it’s going back! Better to get upper arm ones if you want reliable readings Useful Which? article on BP monitors https://www.which.co.uk/reviews/blood-pressure-monitors/article/how-to-buy-the-best-blood-pressure-monitor-aO1yE0Z0vwVs
I have this and an Omron upper arm monitor. But equally accurate.
Surely an inaccurate reading is worse than no reading?
I think the extra cuffs were quoted as being as much as the BP machine itself, but gives people the option if they need it.
Yeah and in the nicest possible way (and without being too morbid) Morrisons will get another manager within days/weeks if something happens, but your child will never be able to replace you :)
Yeah fair point, got a newborn now that’s why ill be seeing the doctor :)
Don't underestimate how damaging lack of sleep can be to your health. That will be a major factor. Good luck dude, and don't be afraid to accept help (whether it be advice or tablets etc) because it's your health at the end of the day.
Certainly is constant pressure and sleep wise, breaks between shifts sometimes 5-6 hours.. 5am starts, 11pm finishes stuff like that. I’ll get a docs appointment booked in see what they say. Have been having a fair few nosebleeds recently too

Buying two or more of these monitors and then investing in a power bank on top is a lot of investment and not much of a deal. Those that need to buy more than one BP monitor are better off buying different makes rather than put all their eggs in one basket.
Big mistake, it's a brilliant machine. Bought three of them and they're excellent. You can buy a power bank for next to nothing and take it with you. We just use them at home. Fantastic little machines.
I boght a smart watch with blood pressure recently, however, the data is far from the truth, I would like to try this, hope it works.
I bought this in the last lightening deal and returned it. I'm pretty sure it was faulty as it was blowing the cuff up to over 200 routinely for a 120/70 BP...even the worst student nurse with a manual Sphyg wouldn't need the cuff that high! Lx
These are inaccurate and the cuff frays after a while. The best one to get is the Omron M3 Comfort, great cuff and excellent quality
