In general, there are no telltale symptoms of high blood pressure, and some might have it for years without knowing. Left untreated, high blood pressure can damage the arteries and vital organs in your body and lead to a heart attack or stroke. High blood pressure can only be diagnosed by using a device that measures your blood pressure.
When purchasing a wrist blood pressure monitor, you owe it to yourself to do your research and get familiar with all of your options. Before making a purchase, consider talking to a healthcare professional about the best option for your needs. And after you’ve made a purchase, have your device checked by your healthcare provider to make sure the readings are accurate or to get the device calibrated.
Here are just a few things to consider before making a purchase.
Consider which features are most important to you. While many of the monitors on our list store a certain amount of data, some offer storage for multiple users, and some offer memory averaging for past readings.
Most of the wrist blood pressure monitors on this list are simple to use and offer one-touch operation, but if you think you’ll need help with setup, look for a device that comes with a complete instruction manual.
Be sure to review the cuff size of the product to determine whether it will work for you. Wrist blood pressure monitors may not be as accurate on wrists that are smaller than 5 inches. Consider also the screen and display size you’ll need to view the readings easily.
