    Great Product

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I have been using the device for a month and am very impressed. I keep it in my backpack and can measure my BP within two minutes. Once I get my reading, it is automatically sent to the app and I can see where the result stacks against my other readings and where it is in the normal/abnormal range. You can easily maintain multiple accounts so I have been getting people in my family to take their BP too. Since buying the product I have only charged it once and it's at 50% battery life, so the battery life is awesome.

    The product and software it comes with are both excellent, empowering tools to improve your health and if you want to track your BP I reocmmend this.

    improved instructions

    • Written by from Toronto

    I just bought my iHealth. I think they've improved the instructions because I found it realatively simple to set up. One thing that is different from other BP monitors is that it takes readings as the cuff inflates (i.e. it takes the diastolic reading first) so you just need to make sure you're relaxed before you press start.

    Cool Blood Pressure Cuff

    • Written by from BRAMPTON

    Being a Cardiac Nurse, this product features are:
    (Pros) small, pocket size, paired with my iPhone 5 right away (after registration), worked & showed what seems to be accurate BP for myself, it records BP measurement and Heart rate.
    (Cons) needs bluetooth connection with a smartphone (i have an iPhone5), did not work with my Macbook Pro even after I downloaded the iHealth vitals which CORRECTION: iHealth vitals are available in the iTunes Store and not the App Store (to be downloaded) in your Mac. It did not come with an electrical adaptor, hence charging it only via USB to your computer. Otherwise you can use any usb adaptor to plug directly to wall electricity.
    As a patient using a beta blocker (heart rate control), I needed a BP monitor on a daily basis maintaing my privacy at work.
    Considering I am a high tech person with medical knowledge, this unit works great for me.

    Good product, not without quirks.

    • Written by from Roselle

    I bought this after 3-months of virtually non-stop overseas travel and the feeling that my bp was getting out of control. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't think the instructions were too bad and made sure I installed the iHealth APP prior to starting the device for the 1st time. Although the bluetooth connection was made immediately, it took 4 or 5 attempts before the 1st successful reading. Then it worked fine for close to 2 weeks with several readings per day. Took it to my doctors' appointment yesterday and he was impressed with it, also noting that it takes readings from 'bottom up, vs. top down'. Beginning last night, the unit would not complete a cycle to take any readings, even though it was charged to 100%. After 8 or 9 attempts and multiple restarts, it began working properly again after I did a hard restart on my iPhone.

    Great Product

    • Written by from SAINT-BRUNO

    So far so good, did not encounter any issue with synching, set up, etc. (iPhone4S). Set up on iHealth website was smooth with no issue. Took about an hour to charge the unit. The only negative so far is the travel case is a little small.

    Great product, once you figure out how to use it.

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Got this for my Dad to monitor his blood pressure. It is easy to download the app and pair the device with Bluetooth. At first we were getting really high readings, which probably didn't help his blood pressure, but we found if he sat on a couch with a deeper seat, and rested his arm on a higher armrest (with a pillow) he was getting very accurate readings. Make sure this is level with you're heart, and you are not tense, and it works really well. He likes the fact that he can track trends to see how he is doing, and uses it a couple of times a day! Great device, just be patient with it.

    Healthy Individuals

    • Written by from SWOYERSVILLE

    I bought this for daily monitoring of my moms blood pressure. I need to get an accurate reading to determine if she should get her blood pressure pill. If using iHealth Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor you must be healthy and be able to sit still. My mom has Parkinson's Disease and cannot sit still for long periods of time. Sometimes I have to redo her blood pressure. Plus you can only do blood pressure twice within 20 minutes. This should be made known to anyone who has Parkinson's Disease. There has to be a blood pressure unit for individuals with Parkinson's Disease. I am happy with the unit otherwise. I had no problems setting up the blue tooth and getting a connection to the device.

    Wrist Blood Pressure

    • Written by from Pittsford

    Took me a while to figure out the connection between the blood pressure device to iPad using the bluetooth. The apps are bit confusing b/c iHealth has 2 apps and I wasn't sure which one to use. After awhile I got it figured out. Directions were poor and agree with other reviews. I'm pretty good figuring out things. I maybe returning it b/c you do have to hold your wrist at a certain position and it shows you. However if you don't have something behind your wrist to rest, it could be tiring holding it that one position. That's why I'm thinking of getting the iHealth Blood Pressure cuff around your arm. At least you can rest your arm on the table.

    I think this is great to have especially, it does everything for you - chart and list your readings. Also, love the fact it's cordless :-)

    It is great but instructions are poor and I am good electronics. They need to rewrite!
