The blood pressure monitor that remembers
If you need to keep an eye on your blood pressure over the longer term, there's no need to write down all the readings in a diary. If you really want to check your most recent blood pressure figures, why not choose a digital monitor with a large memory? Some models available today can store up to 120 readings, and some will calculate the average of the latest ones.
Check the display size
If you have eyesight or reading problems, the ideal digital blood pressure monitor for you is undoubtedly one that's easy to read without a magnifying glass. Some models on sale offer a simplified interpretation of the data without sacrificing accuracy.
Monitors that analyze arrhythmia
Is your heartbeat often irregular? Bear in mind that there are digital arm and wrist blood pressure monitors on the market capable of identifying an irregular heart rate.
Maths not your strong point? Some digital automatic blood pressure monitors show not only a numeric value, but a colour scale similar to a traffic light. Don't worry: this system is certified by the World Health Organization. But there may be cause for concern if you see a red light.
