Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What's this?)
All of the Omron products seem to be quite reliable. The Omron BP791IT 10 + Series is no exception. It gives a reading that is consistent with what I usually get at the doctor's office. I have an older version that I have used for the past 5 years. It had the old paper printout that was nice...until it ran out of paper/ink. Sure, you can get replacements, but it is just one more expense. With this new unit, it will actually save your readings for you. It also allows for 2 users. So, you can save your readings and the readings of someone else.
I also like that the numbers are big and easy to read. I don't have any problems with my eyesight, but for older folks, I could see that this might be handy to have.
The cuff seems a little bigger than some but I wish it were just a tad larger. I admit I have some beefy arms and usually, at the doctor, they have to get out the bigger cuff. This unit, the cuff seems bigger than on my old one, but I certainly wouldn't complain if it was just a little bigger. I think I would get a more accurate read with a bigger cuff too.
The Omron runs on batteries or electricity. It's small enough to be portable and it also looks nice on my nightstand. I recommend this or any of the Omron BP devices.
