    Dangerous

    '0' stars really. I tried 2 of these meters as I liked the idea of being able to review BP on the fly whilst away without having to carry around my well-rated but inconveniently bulky Omron desktop BP monitor. The results were +/-20 mmHg out in for each machine on the diastolic figure compared to my readings with the Omron set-up taken at the same time, and the that had given very similar readings to the doctor's BP monitor.

    Whilst wrist BP monitors generally are known to give less reliable readings than the arm cuff version, I tried both iHealth (wrist and arm cuff) products and would urge you to look elsewhere - these very significant inaccuracies render the devices useless... potentially misleading and so dangerous.
