Pros & Cons
Omron HEM-712CLC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with Large Cuff is the easiest way to keep track of BP readings at home. The IntelliSense technology auto inflates the cuff to automatically determine the correct amount of pressure required to quickly and comfortably measure the readings, with just a push of the button. This technology helps in providing more precise and accurate reading with simple silent operation. The large cuff (13 - 17 inches) which contours easily to large arms, displays the readings on the large digital monitor within 7 seconds of inflation and determination of the correct pressure. The monitor has a memory storage capacity of 30 readings for a single user. It also features pulse, irregular heartbeat and advanced averaging of 3 readings with date and time stamp. This device runs on 4 AA batteries.
However, many users think the cuff takes a long time to auto inflate. 7 seconds to read and display the readings is considerably a very long gap with no blood circulation as the cuff has a strong grip. The device read 15-20 point higher pressure for some users when compared with other devices.
Overall, the Omron HEM-712CLC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with Large Cuff is affordable and reliable with easy to use features backed with 2 years warranty.
