    The Pros and Cons

    • Written by from Fair Lawn

    I have thoroughly tested and experimented with both this device as well as it's competitor, the "iHealth Blood Pressure Dock".
    They're both excellent products and provide very accurate reads.
    However, each have their own advantages and disadvantages. I'll explain the key differences:

    This device is powered by 'AA' batteries while the iHealth BP monitor comes with a 'docking station', which is essentially the battery. The dock gets charged up and can be recharged. On the flip side, this makes the Withings model more flexible since it doesn't need that dock to work.
    The design of the Withings model beats the iHealth unit and the only reason that I stick with Withings over iHealth is because I actually have a Withings scale, and the readings integrate with the weight profile that your scale creates.

    Withings model shouldn't be more expensive, but it is. Unfortunately, I had to bite the extra few bucks to keep that universal integration between my devices (scale + BP).

    Easy to use

    • Written by from Missouri City

    I use this product every day due to heart problems. It is the simplest unit I have used. Put it on, plug it in and the machine does the rest. Then it uploads the results to the Internet. My doctor loves it. Once a month I send in the results and she reviews them and has used the information twice to adjust my medication. I have never found. A better method to store this amount of data with this little effort.

    Inaccurate

    • Written by from Houston

    I purchased this device 2 weeks ago, my wife & I use it on our indivual iPad. Loved it until she took it to the doctor with her & they testedi it. Was told it was not accurate, numbers were too high. Proved it to her by taking pressure with there equipment. It took the trust out of the device, at least until i see an update come out that states "More Accurate than last update".

    Well made, functions sometimes...

    • Written by from Arvada

    I had one of these BP cuffs and sent it back. It's made extremely well and the iPhone and iPad app is great;however, the sensor in the cuff is very difficult to place in the exact position even after watching the video and reading the documentation. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't, even if I had it on my arm and didn't touch it.. When it worked it worked perfectly and accurately, just couldn't get the thing put on my arm correctly 100%. Hope this helps someone else. .

    Easy & accurate

    • Written by from SIPOO

    The device and the iOS app work great together. Very intuitive and easy to use. The automatic mode is great; it makes three measurements in a row and you can set the time in between the measurements as you like, starting from 30sec. Now measuring my blood pressure is as convenient as it can get - and that's what supports me do it daily. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to monitor blood pressure on a daily basis.

    Withings Blood Pressure Monitor

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    useful portability but way too pricey for what it offers compared to competition. Now if it had WiFi capabilities like Withings weighing scale .....

    Works surprisingly well

    • Written by from Airdrie

    We purchased this product a month ago and used it almost daily. That's me and my wife on our own individual iPads. When my wife went for a doctor's appointment, he was very pleased to see a month's worth of blood pressure history. He took measurement of her blood pressure himself and it was dead-on with what Withings measures. We're a month later and it's still running on the same batteries.

    We do not regret this purchase.

    A great product

    • Written by from Harston

    Have the pressure and scales at home. The products are accurate, well made, easy to configure and use. In combination with the clear design and presentation of data on the web site and app software they are a great way of measuring, recording and monitoring your health and future goals. I would recommend to all.

    Love it!!!

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    Great product.
    Great application.
    Expensive? Yes it is but a worthwhile expense if you are concerned about Hypertension.
    Any good digital BP device worth buying for accuracy costs $100.
    A few dollars more for this one is a no brainer.
    Will be a regular part of my luggage for all my travels.

    An expensive novelty! A great paper weight!

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    This device can measure and track normal readings. It cannot detect anything out of the ordinary. It records high readings as normal. So, you never know when you are experiencing something that requires further medical attention. If you have heart problems, stay away from this device; it could cost you your life or result in a stroke. I went into atrial fibrillation with an irregular heart rate of 110. The Withings device registered 48. Fortunately, I have another device that is more accurate in its readings. I kept comparing readings to my disappointment with the Withings. I now use it as a paper weight. With my medical condition I can't afford to trust it.

    Great Product

    • Written by from GRAND ISLAND

    I purchased the BP cuff 2 weeks ago and it has worked flawlessly. I take my BP twice a day while the MD is trying to regulate my hypertension. The Withings BP Cuff and app easily work with my iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. I take my BP with one of them and I can take anyone of them to my doctor and all of the readings are there, I can even E-Mail the stats to him.

    So much better than iHealth

    • Written by from Elkhart

    I had numerous problems with the poorly designed iHealth Blood Pressure Monitor (the rival device to this one). However, I switched and this one works perfectly.

    Only with they had some charts indicating what are good/bad blood pressure levels. Also, some explanations of what everything means. That is the only good thing from iHealth that I liked more than the Withings BPM.

    The thing I liked the most was the fact that the deviced would prompt my iPod to download the application needed to run the device.

    Small arms only

    • Written by from Tecumseh

    It is only for 9 to 17 inch arms. Bigger arms will generate high and erroneous readings. No customer service number to call in Owner's manual. It is being returned :( anyone konw of a BP monitor that is WIFI capable with a large cuff?

    Nice design, but too many errors

    • Written by from Carmichael

    Beautiful design, but finicky operation. Too many errors stating to refit the cuff and try again, even though I had followed the instructions carefully. Readings were inconsistent with other BP cuffs.

    Brilliant

    Very accurate and easy to set up. The app is great and gives you a easy way to share the information with your GP or specialist. Reccomend to anyone wanting to monitor blood pressure.

    Easy to use!

    • Written by from Putnam Valley

    I take my pressure everyday and I find Withings BPM easy to use with my iphone and I pad. It has the ability to send the results to your doctor via email. Just a recommendation, make the next model wireless and it would be perfect!

    Stupid cord length

    • Written by from New Westminster

    This product is hardly usable as the cord length is about a foot. How are you supposed to let your i-device rest and not hold if you are taking your blood pressure at the same time?

    Cord needs to be at least 2 to 3 feet long so you can rest the i-device and sit down at a table at the same time.

    Very poor design.

    Awesome

    • Written by from St-Jean sur Richelieu

    Great product. I've had it for a few weeks now, and it's just what I've
    been looking for. It's worked great right out of the box, and for me to be
    able to keep a record of all my readings is great. I will be seeing my Doc
    later this month, and I am anxious to show him the product.
