I would definitely recommend the Omron M10 blood pressure monitor!

This is a quite sophisticated device but it’s very easy to use.

I have mixed views about the OMRON M10-IT BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR.

PRO – excellent innovative features – on the positive front, the machine is well made and is able to store over eighty readings each for two users

Con – not impressed with the ‘one-size fits all’ cuff, which is very bulky and not easy to achieve a snug fit with if you have a slim arm however I understand this is unusual
