The Omron Electronic Heart Rate & Blood Pressure Monitor

Updated on January 28, 2013

My Pick for a Great Wrist Heart Rate & Blood Pressure Monitor

To keep up my health, my cardiologist recommended a special heart program. Well, I found out you needed a heart attack to get in. Thankfully, I have never had one before. Instead, I began working with a trainer who worked with brain trauma and special health cases. To be safe about stressing my heart, my cardiologist recommended getting a blood pressure and heart rate monitor. By using it, I could keep track and make sure I was not creating additional health issues.

There were many different options to choose from for a monitor. Some were majorly expensive and others were to cheap to obviously be useful.Not to mention, I did want not one taking up my entire arm. I have small arms and they are definitely slightly pathetic. Along with the right size, I wanted one which was easy to read and easy to use.

I chose this monitor because it fit all of my needs. The perfect size for me and easy to use. I set up the date and time by using a few little buttons, and all I have to do is press the button and it takes my reading. If someone else wants to use it, like my Opa who has heart problems, I switch it from my mode (A) to a guest mode (B). This way my readings stay exclusively to me. Along with blood pressure, it takes my pulse. This is way more accurate than when I sit there and look at a clock and try not to be distracted from counting the beats.

I recommend this monitor to everyone (except those under 18). No, I am not a doctor but I do care about my reader's health. Instead of reviewing the latest electronic, I chose to review a product to help you stay healthy and live long enough to see the latest electronics for years to come.

I do not exercise without it. I love knowing I am keeping track of my heart rate and blood pressure. Not because I particularly want to, but because it is the best thing for my health. I love how easy it is use. Press the button and it takes your measurement. I do not want to mess up my numbers, so if someone wants to use it...I switch to guest mode and it is all good. This monitor is completely worth every penny. I wish I had ordered it through Amazon as it would have saved me about twenty dollars.


Why Bother Buying a Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Monitor?

Heart Disease is the Number One Killer in America

America has a very real problem when it comes to taking good care of our hearts. The number one killer in America is heart disease with hypertension being the most common primary diagnosis in the United States. More than 50% of the world's majority adult population will soon be affected by hypertension.

Having hypertension increases your risks of dying from heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease. The annual death rate is 7 MILLION. In America, our lifestyles greatly affect the chances of developing such a problem. Many, many people in the United States are over weight with some tipping into the levels of obesity. The obesity has recently become an epidemic in this country and if lifestyle changes are not going to happen, than the best to be done is to monitor what is happening. You only get one heart. Knowing your blood pressure numbers is important. Increased blood pressure can lead to blood clots, heart damage, stroke, blindness, the list goes on and on. Regular monitoring is important for you and your doctor. Seeing how high your blood pressure is every day, is like getting a notice from your heart saying..."Hey you! I am struggling here! Help me out!"

Giving the gift of a monitor is not insulting, it is showing you care. You care about their health and keeping them around a very long time. Take care of yourself and those you love. No one should fall prey to heart disease. Knowing your health and keeping up with the numbers can make all the difference.

Obesity is the perfect way to cut a long life short. Want to be around a long time? Get in the know and make a visit to your doctor.

Books to Help in Making a Healthier You. - It's never to late!

One of the best ways to manage weight is by changing your diet. Keep a food journal for several days and look at what you are eating. You may be surprised to see what you find. Talk to your doctor, pick up a healthy cookbook, and take a nutrition class or two if you find yourself at a loss as to what you should be doing. No one is born instantly knowing the ins and outs of taking good care of the body. I am skilled at reading labels because of all my food allergies but I still chose a course in nutrition for my pre-med degree. Even I was amazed at how large our food portions have grown over time. Example? The only size fries back in the day was what is now, the small at McDonald's. That was the only size people got, now look at the large fry size compared to the small. Pretty scary.

Are you...

Are you taking steps to prevent heart disease?
