Comfortable, quick and accurate blood pressure monitoring is now even easier with this fully automatic digital upper arm monitor. It gives early warning of potential health issues with an Irregular Heartbeat Detector. With the OMRON M2, protection against hypertension is in your hands. While the easy to wrap cuff fits most adult arms (22-32 cm circumference), the Cuff Wrapping Guide ensures correct fitting, and the new larger display makes the results clear and easy to read.
Hypertension – what is blood pressure?
- The heart is a very powerful pump that beats steadily
- The pressure created by the heart to pump the blood through the blood vessels is called blood pressure
- When the heart muscle contracts the blood surges through the arteries – this is when the systolic (upper) blood pressure value occurs
- The diastolic (lower) value is the resting pressure before the heart contracts again
- Ideally your blood pressure should be below 140/85 mmHg
There are approximately 16 million people in the UK with high blood pressure, however nearly two thirds are not aware of the fact, which is understandable when there are no symptoms. However, if left, high blood pressure can lead to strokes and heart problems.
Why choose an OMRON blood pressure monitor?
Every OMRON blood pressure monitor is tested for accuracy against the clinical guidelines for measuring blood pressure that are specified by the European Society of Hypertension. A clinically validated monitor means that it has undergone tests conducted by independent doctors according to a predetermined protocol, which includes ensuring the accuracy of the measurements (algorithm) of the blood pressure monitors.
OMRON Intellisense is an advanced technology for blood pressure measurement. An Intellisense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level for each use, meaning that each reading has a personalised inflation level that is right for the user.
The technology – Irregular heartbeat detection
Irregular Heartbeat Detection – A symbol appears if an irregular heartbeat has been detected whilst a measurement has been taken. The M2 also features a blood pressure level indicator which will show you if you blood pressure is outside the normal range.
According to the blood pressure classification by the International Society of Hypertension (1999)
Easy to use
OMRON's M2 allows you to measure your blood pressure with ease and accuracy in the comfort of your own home in just a few steps. After positioning yourself and the cuff, it's simply a matter of turning the machine on, pressing start, and then recording the measurement.
By developing state-of-the-art products that match high criteria in blood pressure monitoring technology, OMRON offers long lasting quality and accuracy. Typically, OMRON monitors are clinically validated, assuring you reliable readings. By taking steps to monitor and manage your own blood pressure, you can vastly improve the chances of greater long-term health and be able to provide your doctor with valuable information.

Anyway, the new M2 is considerably smaller and lighter than its predecessor, though they share the same arm cuff design (there's a Omron 32 - 42 cm Large Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff is available to purchase for not so much money if this one is too small). Use is the same and as simple: following the instructions written on the cuff, secure the cuff on your arm, press the blue button and a pump motor inflates the cuff to the correct level and then releases the air. The large display then shows you your BP and heart rate. The sensor to detect an irregular pulse is a good addition. Batteries and a case are also included.
Only thing missing is a BP chart to show you safe levels (and stop you worrying, which could also raise your blood pressure!).
The unit will remember the last 30 readings for you, but this is fairly low if you're hoping to monitor your blood pressure over a large period of time. I'm surprised that none of the models in the range, (even the highest model the Omron Healthcare M6 Comfort Upper Arm Blood Pressure monitor which keeps 100 readings) have the ability to transfer the readings via wi-fi to a computer so that the blood pressure can be tracked over months. Of course you can make a manual note of the values though.
I would happily recommend this monitor, or indeed any in the Omron range, but I would recommend having a look at previous models in order to get the best value. For example, the Omron M2 Basic Blood Pressure Monitor is an earlier but extremely similar version of this product and is available for well under half the price at the time of writing.
The arm cuff easily connects to the main unit with a built-in connector tube and the instructions for use are relatively simple. The only difficulty I experienced was ensuring that the arm cuff was positioned correctly, and was tight enough. Luckily the monitor checks the tightness before activation and shows a symbol if being used correctly.
The only downside I have found with this blood pressure monitor is that it has been somewhat inconsitant. While I recognise for the price, and the fact that it is a home monitoring kit, I cannot expect it to be premium hospital quality, there have been a number of times where I get erroneous readings. They are either strangely high or low from where they should be, and I am forced to retake the blood pressure to provide an accurate reading. This can be somewhat disconcerting when you suddenly jump from a good blood pressure to a very high pressure, or when the reader suddenly indicates you have an erratic heart rate and should be checked by a doctor.
Despite this flaw, however, this product is still good enough providing it is used with the caveat that blood pressure should also always be checked by a trained medic. With that in mind, I can see this product definitely serving a purpose in helping people keep a track of their own pressure at home inbetween proper medical checks.
First of all, I must say I am very pleased with my purchase. Omron makes quality instruments that are used by medical professionals and health services all over the world, and getting the confidence of this reliability is something I know I am willing to pay for when getting a monitor for home use.
My wife, who is a GP, at first doubted the accuracy of it, but a controlled comparison with her old-fashioned manual blood pressure meter found them to give the exact same readings, and so I am now even more confident in the accuracy of this device.
Now, the negative thing is that the cuff that comes with it isn't the most comfortable one. Not knowing any better, I didn't think much about it, but my wife pointed out that it pinched unusually tight, to the point of actually being slightly painful and giving you prickly feelings in the hand as it blocks off the blood for the arm, the sensation of which could also potentially elevate blood pressure as your body responds to it. My own readings seem to confirm this as I often seem to get a higher blood pressure just as I use it, needing to do three or four readings that gradually get lower as my body gets used to the extra stress of wearing the cuff. I'll look into getting a more comfortable cuff eventually. For now it seems I am getting more used to it, and it doesn't bother me.
The positive is, as previously mentioned, how the readings themselves are accurate, and how it has given me the possibility of tracking my slightly elevated BP at home, avoiding the white-coat syndrome, which in my case can up my readings by even more than the usual 10 points.
