This cuff blood pressure monitor earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it was the most accurate and had the most comfortable cuff. Each monitor’s systolic and diastolic measurements were compared to readings taken by a registered nurse. The Best model deviated from the nurse’s readings by only 6.93%—nearly 2 1/2X more accurate than lesser models. Panelists preferred The Best model’s cuff because it did not over tighten like other monitors and was smooth against the skin. The LCD panel shows diastolic and systolic blood pressure in 7/8"-high numerals, as well as pulse, date, and time; LEDs alert you if blood pressure readings fall outside recommended levels. The display stores up to 90 readings for two people. Six AA batteries (included) provide cordless operation for about 150 readings, or the unit plugs into AC with an included adapter. Cuff fits arms 7 3/4"-13 1/2" in circumference. 9 3/4" H x 8" W x 9 1/2" D. (4 1/2 lbs.)

This is the best blood pressure monitor
from Atlanta, GA
I am a physician and recently diagnosed with hypertension. I ordered three different blood pressure monitors and tested them at home against the standard mercury blood pressure measurement taken by a nurse. This monitor was the most accurate and easiest to use. One of the monitors was three times the price of this one and consistently inaccurate.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not For Flabby Arms
from Denver, CO
Did not give accurate readings on my fat upper arm, but nurse suggested using it on my left forearm instead. When I did that, I got the same reading as she did when using her professional, manual blood pressure equipment. This monitor is quick, painless - and once you learn how to use it, easy.

I have big arms and could not use it! I was very disappointed.Liked the idea of it but not to take on holidays - too bulky.
