Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor Review

I recently was sent this amazing blood pressure monitoring system and boy, did we sure need it! Mike is constantly stopping by the drugstore to check his and this will now enable him to do it here in the privacy of our home. Not that we have anything to hide, but you know, who wants a bunch of people standing around waiting and watching?
This was given to us by Ozeri  and it's their Cardio Tech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. What a mouthful, huh? I have just been calling it the Blood Pressure Monitor. Of course, for you guys, you need to know the full name so that you get the right one if you decide to get one for yourself or a loved one.
Here is the benefits of this particular model:
*New intelligent voice-guided feature alerts you to the proper positioning of your wrist for accurate blood pressure measurements.
*Automatically provides an audible hypertension assessment via a new talking function (as well as a display on the LCD screen).
*Portable, accurate, and simple-to-use with clinically proven technology, stores 180 blood pressure readings (90 x 2 users) with date and time recordings.
*Automatic Irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) detection and Hypertension Indicator.
*Push-button access to average blood pressure readings based on all readings in memory, AM versus PM readings, or the 3 most recent readings.

This does require 2 AAA batteries, which was included in the box, so that was a big help. As you can see, this goes on the wrist, not high up on the arm. You can buy this awesome Cardio Tech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor on Amazon.
I have to admit, I am not very good with technical stuff so it took me longer than probably somebody who knows this stuff better than me, but we finally got it to work.  
CardioTech products offer clinically proven technology and are used by physicians and hospitals around the world. Compact, portable and simple-to-use, the Ozeri CardioTech BP5K Blood Pressure Monitor is an advanced wrist cuff monitor with a new intelligent voice-guided feature that alerts you to the proper positioning of your wrist for accurate blood pressure measurements. The audible voice also automatically provides a hypertension assessment after each measurement.  
With ample memory, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor stores up to 180 blood pressure readings with date and time memory recall (90 readings x 2 users), and automatically classifies each blood pressure reading according to World Health Organization hypertension guidelines.
It calculates average blood pressure readings based on all readings in memory, AM versus PM readings, or the 3 most recent readings. The Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor also detects irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) for an improved understanding of your heart's health. Backed by a 5 year warranty, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor ships with 2 AAA batteries included, a carrying case and user manual.
I have to admit, it's kind of great having a voice tell you what it says because all I know is to look at the numbers and I understand what the top one is and what the bottom on is and thankfully, I know what my good blood pressure should be and what it has been.  So, in that respect at least I do know something and I don't panic when it's a little high or so.

The great thing is that it's small enough to be portable so it can be stuffed into an overnight bag or regular suitcase so it's perfect for travelling. Nothing more irritating than to have to make unexpected stops along the way. So, I bet this will be going with on many a road trip and I would even say that I can hear Mike now, asking people if they want their blood pressure taken.

And as you can definitely see, it's the right size to tuck into something while travelling. The Blood Pressure kit is small enough that it shouldn't be a problem in the car or in a plane. The actual dimensions of this is:

  • Product Dimensions: 3.2 x 2.5 x 2.8 inches ; 10.1 ounces
  • Shipping Weight: 1.3 pounds
    Ozeri makes a lot of different products as you have seen me in the past write about them. I love their bathroom and kitchen scales along with a frying pan that I recently reviewed. They have great products and so far I haven't had not a single one of them tear up or fall apart.  It's a name that you can trust to deliver on what they say. Check them out on their online website and have some fun trying  to decide what you would like to try first.

    Happy Christmas Shopping!
