I had to get a blood pressure monitor on direction from my physician. I need to keep track of my blood pressure throughout the day. I ordered the iHealth BP5 and downloaded the iHealth app for my iPhone. It was a free app.The monitor automatically detects that it is being put on the arm, and powers up and connects to bluetooth right away. You open the iHealth app, and it immediately sees the cuff attached via bluetooth. You push the onscreen start button, and an ok button and it takes your blood pressure. It is quick and only inflates to the point of the higher pressure and doesn’t over-inflate, then slowly release the pressure. It takes both pressures on the inflation phase, which I thought was really cool.If you need or want a bluetooth blood pressure monitor, this is a wonderful choice!

Blood pressure isn’t very interesting unless YOU have high blood pressure and need to monitor it. You can certainly find any number of automatic blood pressure devices on the market of varying quality to take yo BP. However, if you are tracking it you either need to write value in a book or a spreadsheet. This gadget both takes your blood pressure and updates a graphic display of your BP on your smartphone. Blood pressure readings for me have been quite consistent under similar conditions (important to take your BP under similar conditions for tracking). It is easy to use, place it on your arm with arrow pointing as the instructions show and hit the app and off you go.The connection is Bluetooth and easily established. Your can email your chart of results to your doctor if you want. I like this unit and find its operation simple and convenient. I had no problems setting it up or using it.

I’ve had this six months now. I like it. I’ll admit it took me a bit to figure out the whole Bluetooth thing – but realize it was the first Bluetooth device I ever had and the first one I hooked to my iPhone. I checked it against a standard cuff and it was accurate. I like how it tracks – easy to read, and handy on my phone to show my doctor. You can write in notes as to the type of activity you have been doing. Its been a huge help to me to be able to take it anytime. One thing to watch out for – I recently got a Fitbit – and because that is Bluetooth – it does interfere with the blood pressure device. Either get far away from the Fitbit or disconnect the Bluetooth to it to get the cuff to work. Otherwise no problems –

I got this because a needed a portable unit. I still use my larger one when I am at home as I think it might be slightly more accurate. But for travel this is fine and is within 3%. The only thing I don’t like is that the iPhone app is bugging connecting to the Bluetooth. Before every use I have to go into the Bluetooth settings, make sure the device is connected, open the app, kill the app, then open the app again. Otherwise it does not see the device.
I bought this unit to have it at my second home and not have to carry the first one back and forth. This is a reliable, durable (my first one is over a year of daily repetitive use) and easy to use device. Other than very occasional Bluetooth misconnections the hardware is flawless. It’s the software where I have my main negative perspective. The current version does not provide for getting AVERAGES of your blood pressure measurements. In modern medicine the 24 hours blood pressure monitoring has been shown to provide the most reliable and accurate BP representation of an individual with hypertension. On their website you can see some useless graphics along a timeline but for the physician (I’m a cardiologist myself) is of utmost importance to look a the behavior of your BP throughout the day (day vs. night) and for as many days as possible and, most importantly, get averages of those measurements. They had the app that did just that beautifully but for some reason they discontinued its support and as IOS progresed it is no longer available. For that reason I give the device 4 stars but nevertheless would recommend it and would encourage the developer to provide the software with the functionality outlined above.

I love this product. I have to take my BP every day and my arms are too big for normal cuffs. I’m an athletic guy and my arms are about 17″. I get very accurate readings. It’s EASY to use and worth every penny of the cost. It holds a charge for a LONG time. The app is very easy to use and I love the tracking features. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a larger cuff and wants the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and tracking. The carrying case that comes with it makes it really easy to take with me anywhere I go. Highly recommend.
I bought a Bluetooth cuff BP before from Qardio, their app is good but the device I got was terrible. Got this iHealth Feel, it’s quite easy to use and quite silent during testing! Qardio is like a motorcycle compared with it. Built-in rechargeable battery saves my money!!! Much much better than Qardio. I spend $100 dollars on Qardio and need to buy extra batteries and need to bare the motorcycle sound!!!! Very nice using with my iPhone X.

It works acceptably with IOS devices once the Bluetooth connection is achieved, which is not always achieved so quickly; often you have to wait or retry to get the connection. But apart from that slight inconvenience it works quite well, good battery and the iHealth software is very easy to manage for records or statistics.

The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because it will not work with iPhone 5 unless you have an adapter. Works fine with our iPad and iPad 2. Delivered to my door three days ahead of time. Thanks
