I recently bought the iHealth Feel, Qardio QuardioArm and this one the Omron Evolv. All three are nice, and all three sync nicely with Samung S Heath on the S7 Edge, but noticed that the Feel and QuardioArm were closed in their readings. The Evolve, even though its supposedly the industry standard, showed my bp in the normal range. But to be certain, I took all three into work and had a nurse take my readings and it showed the Evolve way off by 20 points. The nice thing about the Evolve is that you can see the reading on the device. But because the reading is off, I had to return it.
I'm hoping your next review will be the Qardio arm. I'm actually in the market for a wireless blood pressure reading cuff and I'm following your comments with great interest.
Never thought I would watch a blood pleasure monitor review.
I have the walgreens monitor right now, and my biggest complaint with it is that it takes FOREVER to get the reading. How long would you say this model takes? Does it give a reading before deflating?
thanks for this video. now i'm left wondering which to choose Withings or this.
Hey Phil. are you going to try and review the Qardio? I've been using one for a few months and love it.
Omron just released smart watch with blood pressure and heart rate monitor.
Do a review on that as well
Agree. The cuff is a little fiddly at first but you get used to it. The machine is easy to setup and use. The App is functional but very very basic. I use to import the data into Apple Health and then use a third party App to interrogate the data. I bought for £97 from Boots.com
Doesn't it feel heavy in the arm? I read the Evolv's weight is something over 200 grams so probably not too heavy, but still wondering…
Does this sync with Samsung's S health app
Thanks for making this review, there aren't many of such reviews. Such reviews definitely help for people like myself buying it for my aging parents.
Hey Phil…I've recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure really crazy numbers like 150/100 and was just wondering if you don't mind me asking what medication(s) worked for you because you seem to have it under control. The medications I've tried either gave me undesirable side effects and others gave me no side effects but didn't work. I know everyone is different but I would love some input to talk to my doctor about.
I have an Omron series 7 wrist blood pressure monitor…..it has higher readings generally…..I have an (not Omron) older blood pressure cuff I still use….but I notice the least discrepancy between the 2 monitors when my potassium intake is 2000 or higher…..I think the Omron is more sensitive to that. In short, the other blood pressure monitor doesn't seem to pick up on the lower potassium levels. So, now I have 2 monitors……
Hi, can you let me know how loud is the cuff? If you compare it to the nokia bpm+ (the witings one) which is louder ? Also, can you set the cuff and just slide it of your arm so that you do not make the Velcro sound every time ? I take my bp before sleep and i want something that does. not wake my girl next to me. Currently owning an omron mit elite. Thanks for your answer!! (health wise i lost about 30 kg of my body weight and my bp is now around 120/75. )
What app do you download for the Evolv? I downloaded the OmronWellness. The Evolv Monitor is not listed. I selected the another wrist monitor to see if it would pair. No luck. Can steer me in the right direction.
Between and the other one what dovyou recommend?
I have already bought this crap. It reads BP like others do, but the uniqueness of this shit, that it can't communicate with the cell phones so you can monitor your blood readings for a long period of time.
Hi. I have noticed that those cuffs go supper quick and easy if you do not try to unroll them. Just release the velco and slip them over your arm like slipping on an armband.
Skip to 2:00 everybody
@ModernDad Do you realize that the description of this video calls the product the "Withings Evolv"?
Onrom 5 failed. BT would not work. Equate 8000, BT failed, descent but measured while inflating, weird. Fingers crossed. Sold me with this video.
Which blood pressure monitor do you recommend? Omron Evolv or Nokia BPM? thankful
I really appreciate that you make it clear that the device can take readings without the app. Most reviews do not.
I want to buy it but I dont have enough money ??
Thanks for the review. Been looking for an accurate monitor that is easy to use. Just had a wake up call and I had a Huge Nosebleed triggered by High Blood pressure. 215/110 And we are not talking just a little blood but more like if someone has turned on a Gardenhose at full blast. Very scary indeed. Well, my wife rushed me to the nearest Emergency Hospital where they first had to get my Blood Pressure under control and then inject me with what they call a Rhino Rocket. Believe me you don't want that procedure done unless you absolutely have to. It's like someone jamming an eight inch inflatable spike into your nose up until it reaches your brain. It was one of the most horrible experiences in my life, well maybe second to cutting my toes off with a lawnmover. Anyway, I didn't realize my blood pressure was high since I never get sick and haven't been to a doctor in close to 10 years or however long that lawnmover accident was. Anyway, I have gotten a family doctor and an ENT and the Rhino Rocket was removed 2 days ago. Now I have to be on Blood pressure medication for life. They also gave me a Cholestrerol drug. (Crestor) to get my LDL in check. Well, I am looking for a simple to use monitor since they want me to check my blood pressure at least 2 times if not 3 times a day. I bought a cheap wrist monitor but that thing is all over the place and my doctor recommended the Omron brand. I have seen them in my Pharmacy and I think the wrap around with the air pump is a bit cumbersome. This one looks a lot easier to use than the Series 10 Omron unit. Has this Monitor the Evole been accurate for you? Just don't want to spend the bucks for something that doesn't work like this CVS brand wrist monitor. Seems it's off by 30 points between the left and the right arm. Not sure why that is. Anyway, thanks for your review. I will check if Amazon has it on sale.
