    I bought this on recommendation however I compared it to the Omron M2 supplied by my GP which I had validated by my GP. The R2 consistently gave a much lower reading even though I followed the instructions to the letter. It said that my blood pressure was normal when the M2 gave readings for systolic pressure 20-30mm higher. This monitor will tell you that you blood pressure is normal even if you have isolated systolic hypertension (the most common form in over 50 year olds). If you have one of these I would strongly recommend that you go to your GP or Nurse with it and get them to take your BP and then measure it on the R2 and check that it is accurate. In my experience it is not. My neighbour who recommended the R2 is delighted that her blood pressure is normal but I dont have the heart to tell her that the R2 may be underestimating it.

    Found the Omron R2 wrist monitor easy to use, this was bought for my mother to check her pressure at home because she suffers from white coat syndrome, she found it light, simple to operate. Thank you Omron.

    Does just what it is supposed to do and appears quite accurate, this was confirmed by my recent GP visit. Easy to fit and comfortable to use. I record the BP reading on an app on my phone which sends the results to my GP as required. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Omron R2 to family and friends.

    I found the arm monitor painful to use and so purchased a wrist monitor for blood pressure. Much more comfortable!!! Easy to read. Memory of readings useful.

    I bought this for my husband as he has been diagnosed with high blood pressure and is currently waiting for a small operation. This monitor seems to be quite accurate as the readings that he has had agree with the readings at the doctors. So he is able to keep a check on how his blood pressure is progressing

    This was a replacement for an old monitor of a similar design. The wrist monitors are easier for one person to use than those with arm bands - the latter usually need 2 people to apply the arm band. The one I've received seems to be reasonably accurate - good enough to enable any disturbing trends to be observed, which is all these things should be used for.

    This item was purchased for my 85 year old mother who has trouble dealing with most gadgets. However, once shown how to use this monitor she mastered it very quickly and it gives her great peace of mind to be able to check on her well-being. It is excellent value and is very easy to use.

    I have high blood pressure and I need to keep a regular eye on it. I got this unit because I wanted to take it to work and not take my shirt off in the office!

    Initially I was pleased with it.

    However, then I checked the readings with my other Omron units (and later with the more advanced Withings blood pressure reader). I came to realise that this unit does not always give a reliable and correct reading (for me anyway).

    Proceed with caution if you genuinely have high blood pressure and this is going to be your main blood pressure reader.
