This is the summary of consumer reviews for Omron 5 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor BP742. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $44.50-$69.99.

Omron BP742 5 Series is a simple and easy to use Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor for home use by adults. The big numbered, easy to read digital monitor tracks and stores 30 readings for 2 users. The readings are stored with date and time stamp. The device includes the advanced averaging feature which automatically displays the average of last 3 readings taken within the last 10 minutes. The other handy features include the hypertension indicator alert and the irregular heartbeat alert with a special indicator, for necessary and timely action. The unit also includes a standard sized cuff (fits arms 9"-13" in circumference) and operates on 4 AA batteries (included).

The cuff is not big enough for large arms and users may need to buy extra-large cuff separately.

Overall, the Omron BP742 5 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is simple, easy to use and affordable. Coming from a trusted brand, this compact device offers very accurate and reliable readings.
