To con­trol blood pres­sure, you do not need to vis­it the clin­ic often. Many man­u­fac­tur­ers of med­ical equip­ment offer users mechan­i­cal and auto­mat­ic blood pres­sure mon­i­tors suit­able for home use. Elec­tron­ic mod­els are more expen­sive, but very con­ve­nient for self-mea­sure­ment of pres­sure. Mechan­i­cal blood pres­sure mon­i­tors require at least a lit­tle skill to work with them, but are con­sid­ered more reli­able and accu­rate. You can also see semi-auto­mat­ic devices in phar­ma­cies. When choos­ing the best option for your home, you need to take into account sev­er­al cri­te­ria — the expect­ed fre­quen­cy of use, the need to car­ry the device with you, the required accu­ra­cy, the size of the cuff. We would also rec­om­mend giv­ing pref­er­ence to trust­ed man­u­fac­tur­ers.

The best automatic blood pressure monitors with a large cuff

Armed YE-630A

Armed YE-630A

An excel­lent blood pres­sure mon­i­tor with a large cuff, which pro­vides every­thing you need to con­trol blood pres­sure. This is an arrhyth­mia indi­ca­tor, a mem­o­ry log for 74 mea­sure­ments. For visu­al­ly impaired peo­ple, the option of sound accom­pa­ni­ment, pro­nounc­ing the results of the mea­sure­ment, will be use­ful. Some users com­plain that the sound is too loud, but it can be reduced or com­plete­ly turned off. The cuff is not only large, but also com­fort­able. It tight­ly clasps the hand, but does not cause dis­com­fort when pump­ing. Using the device is sim­ple — all con­trol is reduced to one but­ton, and users con­sid­er the results to be quite accu­rate. The only down­side they call is a weak Vel­cro on the cuff.

Pros and cons

    Large universal cuff, 22–45 cm
    Voice alert function, convenient for the elderly
    User comfort, comfortable cuff, one-button metering
    Sufficient measurement accuracy, minimum error
    The kit includes an adapter, can work from the mains
    Not very strong Velcro on the cuff

Omron M2 Classic

Omron M2 Clas­sic

A suc­cess­ful mod­el for home use, fixed on the shoul­der, from the well-known com­pa­ny Omron. It fea­tures a uni­ver­sal cuff size — 22–42 cm, indi­ca­tion of arrhyth­mia. The instru­men­t’s mem­o­ry stores the last 60 mea­sure­ments. In terms of func­tion­al­i­ty, the device is sim­ple, but very reli­able. Accord­ing to users, the life of the blood pres­sure mon­i­tor is longer com­pared to devices from less­er-known brands. The device works from four “fin­ger-type” bat­ter­ies. Users call the advan­tages of the device accu­ra­cy, ease of use, reli­a­bil­i­ty. The mod­el is great for old­er peo­ple who find it dif­fi­cult to under­stand mod­ern com­plex elec­tron­ics. The only draw­back of the tonome­ter is the lack of a pow­er adapter in the kit. But if nec­es­sary, it can be pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly.

Pros and cons

    Accuracy, users rarely complain about incorrect readings
    Reliability, a model from a well-known, proven brand
    Easy to control, just one button
    Universal cuff, suitable for bulky male arm
    Excellent value for money and quality
    Power adapter not included, sold separately
    Poor, poor quality case

B.WELL A‑23

B.WELL A‑23

Very con­ve­nient for home use and expen­sive func­tion­al mod­el at a low cost. The size of the cuff is uni­ver­sal — 22–36 cm, the error of blood pres­sure indi­ca­tors is not more than 3 mm Hg. Art. Pow­ered by four AA bat­ter­ies, con­nects to a fixed net­work using the includ­ed adapter. The set of options is quite wide — the device detects arrhyth­mia, cal­cu­lates the aver­age val­ue of three mea­sure­ments, and on the WHO scale shows the com­pli­ance of pres­sure with the norm. A great option for old­er cou­ples — the tonome­ter is designed for two users, stores up to 60 mea­sure­ments in mem­o­ry. Users speak well of this tonome­ter. They con­sid­er the main advan­tages to be ease of use, the pres­ence of a net­work adapter, a large amount of mem­o­ry, and the abil­i­ty to switch between users. Large num­bers and the WHO scale help old­er peo­ple bet­ter nav­i­gate the indi­ca­tors.

Pros and cons

    Compact size for a shoulder tonometer
    Measurement accuracy, few complaints about incorrect readings
    Ease of use and functionality, all the necessary options
    Memory magazine for two users, family option
    Large display, large numbers are clearly visible
    Small storage case, difficult to pack

Meditech MT-30

Meditech MT-30

The cheap­est mod­el among inex­pen­sive sphyg­mo­manome­ters with a shoul­der cuff. But despite the low cost, it has every­thing a user needs to con­trol blood pres­sure — mea­sur­ing the pulse rate, detect­ing arrhyth­mia, the WHO scale to check whether the indi­ca­tors are nor­mal. The tonome­ter has a capa­cious mem­o­ry for 120 mea­sure­ments. The device is com­pact, quite well made, users do not com­plain about a quick break­down. Sub­ject to the rules of mea­sure­ment, the accu­ra­cy is close to that of mechan­i­cal tonome­ters. Of the short­com­ings in the reviews, the lack of a net­work adapter in the kit and an unsuc­cess­ful cuff that squeezes the hand too much are most often called.

Pros and cons

    Affordable price compared to other automatic blood pressure monitors on the shoulder
    Capacious memory, saves the last 120 measurements
    Quality workmanship, no complaints about quick breakage
    Measurement accuracy, if the instructions are followed, it coincides with mechanical models
    Compact size, easy to take on the go
    No power adapter included, must be purchased separately
    Not the best cuff, puts a lot of pressure on the arm

ANDUA 668

ANDUA 668

High-qual­i­ty tonome­ter of a stan­dard design “on the shoul­der”. The cuff is pain­less, does not bring sig­nif­i­cant dis­com­fort dur­ing mea­sure­ment. Works from four “fin­ger-type” bat­ter­ies. The last thir­ty mea­sure­ments are stored in mem­o­ry. There is a mode of sev­er­al mea­sure­ments with the cal­cu­la­tion of the aver­age val­ue. Oper­a­tion is car­ried out with just one but­ton, which sim­pli­fies the use of the device by old­er peo­ple. The mod­el is already a lit­tle out­dat­ed, but reli­able. Many note the con­ve­nience, low cost of the tonome­ter, ease of oper­a­tion, the abil­i­ty to view the his­to­ry of recent mea­sure­ments. But the reviews about it on the net­work are not only pos­i­tive — some users point to a large error in pres­sure indi­ca­tors com­pared to mea­sur­ing with a con­ven­tion­al mechan­i­cal tonome­ter. But this can hap­pen due to weak bat­ter­ies. Anoth­er down­side is that there is no AC adapter includ­ed.

Pros and cons

    Simple and reliable blood pressure monitor, one-button operation
    Runs on batteries or AC adapter
    Excellent workmanship, solid assembly
    Minimum measurement error
    Outdated model, not sold in all pharmacies

The best inexpensive automatic blood pressure monitors on the wrist

B. Well MED-57

B. Well MED-57

One of the most com­pact, but at the same time func­tion­al blood pres­sure mon­i­tors. With a very small weight, size and more than afford­able price, it is equipped with most mod­ern options — it mea­sures not only pres­sure, but also pulse, detects arrhyth­mia, shows com­pli­ance with the norm on the WHO scale and remem­bers the last 30 read­ings. There is a func­tion for cal­cu­lat­ing the aver­age val­ue of three mea­sure­ments, which can be use­ful for peo­ple with arrhyth­mia. Unlike most inex­pen­sive blood pres­sure mon­i­tors, the mod­el is equipped with a back­light, it is con­ve­nient to use it in low light or its com­plete absence. There are com­plaints about incor­rect indi­ca­tors, as is the case with oth­er mod­els on the wrist, but often they are asso­ci­at­ed with non-com­pli­ance with the mea­sure­ment rules.

Pros and cons

    Backlit, easy to use in dim light
    Functionality, there are most modern options
    Low price with the functionality of the device
    Compact, plastic carrying case included
    Accurate measurements provided the instructions are followed
    Gives an error when the measurement rules are violated

Omron R1

Omron R1

One of the sim­plest, but reli­able mod­els with an intel­li­gent con­trol sys­tem. It is fixed on the wrist, has a min­i­mum error in blood pres­sure and pulse mea­sure­ments — 3 mm Hg. Art. and 5% respec­tive­ly. Dif­fers in very com­pact size, it is con­ve­nient­ly put on a hand, works from two “lit­tle fin­ger” bat­ter­ies. In the reviews, many users write about the accu­ra­cy of the tonome­ter read­ings (a com­par­i­son was made with the mea­sure­ment of a mechan­i­cal device), ease of use, and low cost. Like all Omron blood pres­sure mon­i­tors, this mod­el is pop­u­lar and trust­ed by cus­tomers. The sim­plic­i­ty and ver­sa­til­i­ty of the device is of no small impor­tance in this — there are no extra options, the stan­dard cuff suits most users. Some note large num­bers and just one but­ton for ease of oper­a­tion.

Pros and cons

    Time-tested company, simple but reliable device
    Accurate pressure readings when following the recommendations from the instructions
    Comes with a plastic case, easy to carry
    Large numbers on the display, suitable for visually impaired people
    Easy to measure, nothing more, one-button operation
    The high price of the device with low functionality
    Some users complain about a large error

AND UB-202

AND UB-202

Inex­pen­sive, but func­tion­al mod­el of a carpal tonome­ter. In addi­tion to the main func­tion (mea­sure­ment of blood pres­sure), it gives users many oppor­tu­ni­ties — there is a log of the last mea­sure­ments of 90 cells, an indi­ca­tion of arrhyth­mia, a WHO scale for eas­i­ly deter­min­ing whether the pres­sure is nor­mal. There is an intel­li­gent con­trol, the mode of the aver­age val­ue of sev­er­al mea­sure­ments. The “Guest” option is enabled, which does not record mea­sure­ments in the log. The man­u­fac­tur­er gives a ten-year war­ran­ty on the device. Most reviews about the device are pos­i­tive. Users like the accu­ra­cy of mea­sure­ment, com­pact­ness, and the pres­ence of a con­ve­nient car­ry­ing case in the pack­age. Many addi­tion­al­ly note the com­fort­able shape of the cuff — it does not tight­en the arm, does not cause pain even with strong infla­tion.

Pros and cons

    Affordable price with good workmanship
    Reliability and durability, 10 year manufacturer’s warranty
    Functional model, sufficient memory, WHO scale, arrhythmia indicator
    Measurement comfort, anatomical cuff does not squeeze the arm
    Convenient travel option, small, compact with case included
  • Dif­fi­cult to use in low light
  • You must strict­ly fol­low the instruc­tions to obtain cor­rect read­ings.
