Review: Ozeri Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

I have been making changes in my life, from subscribing to Daily Burn, to getting a scale finally (will review that one soon) and getting a blood pressure monitor is just one of those things needed to check out how you're doing. I am definitely planning on losing some of this weight here, and I'm going to try my darnedest to do it. 

I received this Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor to review, and it couldn't have come at a better time! 

Keep reading below for my review :) and I need some help from you all!

Being "big" runs in the family, and I want to break that streak. Show my kids that you can be healthy. I'm planning on taking "family walks" at least once a week, more if they want to come! Otherwise, I'm going to work my butt off in my living room, and eventually a gym. I've got all kinds of products to help me try. My biggest issue at the moment is snacking. I so want to snack! But I just don't know what is good to snack on.

Please comment below with some yummy, healthy and affordable snacks! Also, I'd love recipes for healthy shakes/smoothies that I should try!

Anyways, so I'm using this blood pressure monitor to check my BP and pulse in the AM and after a workout. It's nice to see the increase (in a good way) of my pulse, and it also helps me keep track of my BP so I can alert my doc if anything changes. I don't have any issues with my BP, but I know that my weight can bring that on. Thankfully, I don't have any issues related to my weight.

This monitor can store up to 90 readings for 2 people (180 total if one person is using it). It is easy to switch through the two users, and pretty simple to check previous readings. 

This monitor will let you know if your BP is in normal range, if it's in the warning stage or if you're in the RED (meaning hypertension). If you get too many of those in a row you may want to call your doctor. It can also tell if you have an irregular heartbeat. 

This monitor is portable and even has its own case that it can be stored in. Easily can fit in a gym bag, purse, diaper bag or whatever you use. It uses a new technology that allows it to measure as it inflates, so you're sitting for less time waiting for the readout, and less pain (if you're like me and can't stand getting your BP read. Sometimes it's painful!).

The monitor does require 2 AAA batteries, which are included. 

I have to add, using a wrist cuff is different from an arm cuff. This requires you to sit at a table (or a couch with a high arm on it) so that way you can rest your elbow naturally on the table, and hold your hand up. Your wrist should be about level with your heart. No moving, talking, cell phones nearby, etc. This gives the most accurate reading. I've found these to be true to what my doc reads and the machines at pharmacies.

The band is velcro and should be able to work with just about anyone, including children. 

Overall, I really enjoy this monitor. I'll be suggesting my dad buy one, and he regularly checks his BP. May even buy one for my grandma, too.
