Omron’s monitors are well known for their accuracy. They are certified by various health organizations, making them most sought out blood pressure monitors in the market. It provides one of the best feature called ‘ComFit Cuff,’ which is a patented technology by Omron. Cuff fitting is important for getting accurate blood pressure readings.
ComFit cuff is pre-formed cuff which expands to fit the arm size of 9” to 17”. The cuff will not be loose or tight, it will be suitable for both standard arms and large sized arms. The Cuff Wrap Guide Indicator indicates whether the cuff is wrapped correctly and appropriately on your arm. Compared to “wrist monitors”, it is easy to get the fitting and position right in “arm monitors”. On the other hand wrist monitors such as Omron BP652 7 series and BP629 3 Series are more handy.
Ease of Use:
From 7 series onwards, all the Omron blood pressure monitors come with BP Level Indicators. This feature compares your reading with the readings set by the internationally recognized guidelines. This feature helps in checking whether you are deviating from the normal readings to hypotension or hypertension. In case you are, then it’s time to see a Doctor.
- Advanced Averaging: This smart technology displays the average of last 3 readings automatically taken within the duration of the last 10 minutes.
- Irregular Heartbeat Detector: This indicator detects the irregularity in the heartbeats while taking the measurement. The alert will appear when the device detects two consecutive heartbeat irregularities. This feature provides a great help since if there are irregular heart beats then, it’s time to consult a Doctor.
- Memory Capacity: The memory capacity of the BP761 and BP760N is 120. 60 for each user. The memory capacity of BP760 is 60. 30 for each user. It comes with date and time stamp. You can review the last 30 readings with a touch of a button.
- Data Transfer: BP761 supports data transfer using Bluetooth. The other two devices in the 7 series don’t support Bluetooth transfer. Also, it has the compatible app (Omron Wellness App) for both Android and iOS. However, the Bluetooth capabilities from Omron (including BP786) are very limited and have many issues. The app doesn’t integrate with other apps such as Apple Health App and Google Fit. If you need Bluetooth transfer feature then Withings blood pressure monitor would be the way to go.
