The best connected blood pressure monitor Withings BPM Connect

The Withings BPM Connect is undoubtedly one of the benchmarks on the market for connected blood pressure monitors. Compact, precise thanks to the oscillometric operating method and comfortable at the cuff level, it is also very simple to use. For example, you will have the possibility of choosing a simple measurement of blood pressure or a triple measurement, more complete including heart rate.

Also worth noting is its small integrated LED screen, which is very readable day and night. The device can register a maximum of 8 users and has unlimited data storage thanks to the Health Mate application (usable via Wifi or Bluetooth).

Although the application is not particularly intuitive, it is complete and compatible with other health and fitness applications, allowing the centralization of data. You can also transfer your data directly to your doctor. Finally, we appreciated its long autonomy ensured by a good capacity rechargeable battery.

The best value for money blood pressure monitor: Beurer BM 55

A benchmark on the blood pressure monitor market, the Beurer BM 55 offers monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate, as well as an overall assessment of mental and physical rest using the oscillometric method.

This model is very ergonomic, in particular thanks to its large, bright and backlit screen offering a clear display. It is also equipped with a color scale placed next to the screen which makes it easier to understand the results obtained. However, we noticed that some keys lacked responsiveness

The best low-cost blood pressure monitor: Omron X2 Basic

More entry-level, the Omron X2 Basic is nonetheless reliable in measurements and easy to use. Compared to more expensive blood pressure monitors, it may have fewer storage options, but it often gave more reliable readings than many of the blood pressure monitors we tested. Using the oscillometric method, it can easily measure systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as heart rate.

Easy to use thanks to the winding guide on the cuff, the Omron X2 Basic is quite universal, adapting to arms with a circumference of 22 to 32 cm. The LCD screen located on the case is well oriented but in the absence of backlighting, it becomes unreadable in the dark. Finally, the device can only save the last measurement taken and it can only accommodate one user profile.

The best “universal size” blood pressure monitor: Omron X3

The Omron X3 stands out from the competition with its universal size cuff (22 to 42 cm) and its ease of use. Another positive point, its wide cuff offers better contact with the arm to improve measuring and it has a winding guide and a bad position detector.

In addition to measuring blood pressure and heart rate, it also reports possible abnormalities such as hypertension. You can save two profiles on the device, and up to 60 data per user. Although the large LCD screen is very readable, the absence of backlighting makes it impossible to use in the dark. No color coding either in order to facilitate the interpretation of the results obtained. The device is, however, very ergonomic thanks to its distinct and clearly identifiable buttons. Finally, the included cover makes the blood pressure monitor easy to transport.
