    Buyer beware - Will not fit iPhone 5 out of the box

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Received my monitor and looking forward to using it only to find it comes with the old connector which will not fit my iPhone 5 or iPad Air. Looking back through the promotional guff it states "connects to 30 pin connector" as one of the highlights. Not sure why this is a highlight when it is not supplied in the box and is additional expense??
    Still looking forward to using it.........when I've bought an adapter.

    reads high, cuff not the most comfortable

    • Written by from Wentworth Falls

    concept great. I have had the pulse and app etc. for a while. I have been putting my weight and BP into app manually so decided to get the smart blood pressure monitor. The readings are high, this is a concern for me as I am exercising and trying to stay off medication and need these readings for my doctor. my OMRON shows readings of up to 10mm/hg lower and I know this unit is accurate. I have read other reviews to see if others have had problems and high readings are an issue with too many people. I must not be treated for inaccurately high readings as there are many side effects of medication and these can be life altering. My weight is 72kg and normal height. My arm is not large. I will try to return this product.

    Good... When it works..

    • Written by from Linlithgow

    Decent gadget when it works with my iPhone however it seems to be quite temperamental.

    It should also ship with a lightning adaptor as I can't use it with my ipad mini.

    Doesn't alert you to low battery levels , I had to guess that was the problem when it refused to work after about a dozen frustrating attempts.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Anthem

    Save your money. Always very inaccurate (on the high side). Squeezes the heck out of your arm. How long has iPhone 5 and lightning port been out and they still don't have the right port on these things. Sad.

    Fine - until it stopped working

    • Written by from Birmingham

    This product was fine until it stopped working. It gave the low battery warning so I changed the batteries and it still gave the same warning. So I thought perhaps I was unlucky with some duff batteries from Morrisions; I know, I will try some more. But the same result. The booklet says "If the problem occurs again, please contact our customer service" at an address in France. Verdict: if you have £100 to waste then this is the product for you! Otherwise try another BPM

    Inaccurate on the high side

    • Written by from Sterling

    Every time I measure my BP with this gadget I do follow carefully the instructions. But usually, not always, I get a high value. At first I thought this was real and went to the doctor. I have repeated to check the device and though sometimes it does concur with professionally measured values, most of the times it is on the high side. So far, I have never measured more than 125, and this device insists I have a record of more than 135/86 in the mean...

    Privacy goodbye !

    • Written by from Miami

    You need to give your email address to measure your blood pressure ! It won't work without a WIFI connection ! I cannot accept this intrusion into my privacy and I would return the product if I could.

    Setup and use was easy, no i5 connection

    • Written by from Calgary

    Easy to set up, probably one of the few that has been 'plug 'n play'. Had to download the app and then it was up and running after a few simple inputs. Easy to use, instructions in the app and the booklet that came with BP monitor were clear and they give you lots of little tips by email later on. Is there a downside? Yes - I have an iPhone 5 and so had to buy a crossover to plug the old big plug into the new small receptacle.
    I haven't confirmed the readings with my Dr. yet but that's my plan in a few weeks. But I'll still get a trend over the next few weeks which is one of the key measurements I'm looking for.
    Recommended: Yes if you are interested in your BP.

    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?

    A nice tool to monitor health & fitness

    • Written by from Waterloo

    I've used this product for over six months and it has worked flawlessly. I use it with the Withings iPad app which has a sleek and simple user interface that visualizes my historical blood pressure measurements.

    I paired the blood pressure monitor with the Withings body scale. The iPad app has allowed me to see a correlation between weight reduction (and exercise) and improved blood pressure readings.

    Overall this product is a nice tool to help with an overall health & fitness plan.

    Close but no cigar

    • Written by from Calgary

    The unit itself seems good enough... But the unit is kinda useless without the software. I bought my unit shortly after Christmas 2012. On the 30th the software kept crashing. This rather embarrassing "bug" was documented on the WiThing website. A bug? Really strange "bug" if you ask me... More likely an Easter egg from a disgruntled programmer. TRY SOME QA (Quality Assurance) -sheesh. Now, the app is saying I need to gain 62kg... Another "bug"....

    Hardware is just more junk without the software. grrrrr. Idiots

    Great Addition to My Health Plan

    • Written by from oklahoma city

    I would have never believed that I would enjoy a blood pressure monitor, but this model by Withings has changed my mind. Every morning and evening, I check my BP and it stores all of my scans. The charts are easily accessible and easy to read. The product should really be showcased on a stand at the Apple store so that the quality can be viewed first hand. From the images on the Internet, the cuff seemed small and low grade, but after I opened the box, I was pleased to see that it was solid and was built to go a long ways.

    Two things I would recommend to keep in mind ...
    1. The only email setting is for the original user that is set up.
    2. The original 30 pin connection doesn't work in the new iPhones, iPads, and iPods. I haven't tested an adapter yet.

    does what it says

    • Written by from Surbiton

    considering you can get a manual version for £20 or less this is an over-engineered luxury - but it's a lovely piece of equipment, designed in a similar vein to apple kit form the packaging to the device itself. You simply plug it in, download the app that is automatically suggests and follow the instructions. The app is elegant and useful and overall it's a lovely, over the top product.

    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. .

    Withings Blood Pressure Monitor

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

    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".

    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.

    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.

    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.
