5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, trustworthy and probably one of the best monitors available with excellent PC data download option, 28 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Omron M10-IT Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Dual-User Facility and Dual-Size Cuff (Personal Care)
This is an exceptionally good blood pressure monitor - and is probably one of the best available.

I've used several blood pressure monitors, including wrist monitors, but this is the one I trust and wouldn't hesitate to recommend very highly to any user. It's not the cheapest but in my view it's worth paying a little extra for this more sophisticated machine in the knowledge that it's going to provide years of service and, if the cuff or cable should wear during its lifetime, then replacements are available from Omron rather than having to replace the machine - as is necessary with other brands. The M10-IT's software can also be used in conjunction with the superb Omron Walking Style Pro Pedometer for additional health and fitness monitoring.

Pros
Very sturdy build
Very easy to use
Large, bright, clear display
Clinically validated - so readings should be accurate
Dual memories to store readings for 2 users plus guest function to measure unrecorded readings which won't affects your own records
Memories store up to 84 readings - all recorded with date and time
Dual size cuff to fit almost every arm size
Irregular heartbeat indicator
Can take 3 readings in succession to produce an accurate and 'average' reading
Clear instruction manual which also provides information about blood pressure
Can differentiate between morning and daytime/evening readings to warn of morning hypertension
PC link via USB to allow printing of records, graphs, frequency distributions and trends for quick, easy visual monitoring
PDF and CSV output
Can be used in conjunction with Omron Walking Style Pro Pedometer
Zip-up carrying case for storage and travelling

Cons - very few and very trivial
At 13 x 15 x 8cm approx, it is larger than I expected
Cuff was a bit too large for my very slender arms - but should fit most other adult users with a diameter of 22cm or higher
