Ease of use (20%)
To check the monitors’ accuracy we took readings from a group of 10 men and women of varying ages. We then compared the results with those obtained from a recently calibrated hospital-grade blood pressure monitor.
Ease of use is assessed on the instructions, how easy the monitors were to operate, screen quality, the information displayed, and how comfortable the cuff was.

Has good screen information.
Inaccurate reading. A nurse took my BP twice with her equipment and twice with this machine. Nurse equip reading 120/84 and 122/86 and this is my usual BP around 120/80. The nurse used the machine and reading was 161/98 and 157/100. She would expect a small difference but the difference is substantial. I cannot understand how Consumer would have said the accruacy is 'good'. I would rate this very poor accuracy. Also the pressume of the armband is very tight when inflated making it an uncomfortable experience.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
