Most peo­ple who have prob­lems with blood pres­sure need to mea­sure this indi­ca­tor reg­u­lar­ly, includ­ing on their own, at home, which requires an easy-to-use and fair­ly accu­rate tonome­ter.

There are mechan­i­cal, auto­mat­ic and semi-auto­mat­ic devices. Auto­mat­ic blood pres­sure mon­i­tors are the best solu­tion for pen­sion­ers, as well as all those who often have to resort to mea­sure­ments. The device inde­pen­dent­ly inflates the cuff and deter­mines the read­ings. The cost of tonome­ters of this type is high­er than semi-auto­mat­ic and mechan­i­cal coun­ter­parts.

Auto­mat­ic devices are equipped with addi­tion­al options. It can be an arrhyth­mia diag­no­sis or an intel­li­gent log­ic sys­tem to cor­rect­ly deter­mine the pres­sure even with an irreg­u­lar or weak pulse by cal­cu­lat­ing the aver­age.

Blood pressure monitor rating

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.

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.

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.

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.

IHEALTH BP5

IHEALTH BP5

Auto­mat­ic sphyg­mo­manome­ter with stan­dard fix­a­tion on the shoul­der. There is no screen, all data is trans­ferred to a smart­phone on the Android / iOS plat­form. The con­nec­tion is made via Blue­tooth. The lat­est results are auto­mat­i­cal­ly stored in the device’s mem­o­ry — up to 120 mea­sure­ments. Bat­tery oper­at­ed, can be con­nect­ed to a fixed net­work, but there is no AC adapter includ­ed. The size of the cuff is increased — 22–42 cm. Of the advan­tages, users note a very small weight of the device — only 135 grams. They also like the abil­i­ty to view the lat­est mea­sure­ments. Judg­ing by the reviews, the device is quite reli­able and accu­rate — the devi­a­tions when com­pared with the read­ings of a mechan­i­cal tonome­ter are insignif­i­cant.

Cardio CardioArm

Car­dio Car­dioArm

The Quardio auto­mat­ic blood pres­sure mon­i­tor does not have a screen. The prac­ti­cal device redi­rects all infor­ma­tion via Blue­tooth and a spe­cial appli­ca­tion to a con­nect­ed smart­phone on the Android or iOS plat­form. Users note the ease of use — sim­ple set­up, data stor­age, the abil­i­ty to plot graphs. The tonome­ter is pow­ered by bat­ter­ies, so you can take mea­sure­ments any­where, even in the absence of elec­tric­i­ty. The device is dis­tin­guished by a dou­ble mea­sure­ment method, the pres­ence of an arrhyth­mia indi­ca­tion, a pulse mea­sure­ment func­tion, and auto­mat­ic sav­ing of the last read­ings. The mem­o­ry of the device is designed for two users. The reviews talk about the com­pact­ness (68 * 38 * 140 mm) and light­ness (310 g) of the device, so you can always take it with you.

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.

MICROLIFEBP W100

MICROLIFEBP W100

Despite the Chi­nese pro­duc­tion, the mod­el is quite pop­u­lar, it is con­sid­ered high-qual­i­ty and accu­rate. It has 200 mem­o­ry cells — exact­ly as many mea­sure­ments are stored by the device. Very com­pact device on the wrist — pow­ered by two lit­tle fin­ger bat­ter­ies, weighs only 130 grams. Oth­er­wise, the func­tion­al­i­ty is not rich — it is lim­it­ed to the indi­ca­tion of arrhyth­mia. In the reviews, users note the high build qual­i­ty of the prod­uct, its accu­ra­cy, con­ve­nience. Devi­a­tions com­pared to the result of mea­sure­ment with a shoul­der tonome­ter are insignif­i­cant. The device is very con­ve­nient to take with you on the road. The func­tion­al­i­ty is small, but it is enough for mon­i­tor­ing blood pres­sure. In the cat­e­go­ry of mod­els with a large amount of mem­o­ry, it has the low­est cost.

Criteria for choosing a tonometer

To choose the best option when buy­ing, we rec­om­mend that you famil­iar­ize your­self with the basics of choos­ing a tonome­ter for home use. There are 5 main prin­ci­ples:

ai generated, blood vessels, blood
ai generated, heart, love
ai generated, heart, love
ai generated, heart, love
ai generated, zombie, monster
    Number of users — if several people plan to use the device, it is better to buy blood pressure monitors with a memory function and the ability to simultaneously maintain two logs.
    Arrhythmias — people with irregular heart rhythms are advised to purchase devices with a smart measurement function.
    Age — for young and middle-aged people, you can purchase both a shoulder and carpal tonometer. For the elderly — only the shoulder. With age, the vessels of the wrist joint wear out, the elasticity of their walls decreases, bones appear, joint diseases (arthrosis) occur. In this regard, when measuring blood pressure at the wrist, the indicators may be inaccurate.
    Arm size — for slender people, blood pressure monitors with a standard cuff are suitable. For obese people, it is better to choose enlarged cuffs.
    Place of use — depending on where the device will be used, you should choose between compact wrist-based devices powered by AAA batteries (for the road) and standard household models powered by the mains.

In phar­ma­cies, tonome­ters of var­i­ous com­pa­nies are pre­sent­ed. If you want to choose a real­ly high-qual­i­ty device, we advise you to pay atten­tion to four main brands: AND (Japan), Omron (Japan), Beur­er (Ger­many) and Micro­life (Switzer­land).
