The Omron 7 SERIES wrist monitor provides you with these seven key benefits:
Heart Guide Technology:
Automatically activates when your wrist is at heart level, ensuring consistently accurate readings. Flashing orange and blue indicator lights help guide your wrist to your heart level, making it easier to find the correct position.
Two User Mode:
Allows two different users to monitor and track their readings separately in the stored memory.
BP Level Indicator:
Shows how your reading compares to internationally recognized guidelines for normal home blood pressure levels.
Slim Portable Design:
New slim design is more discrete and convenient for portability, allowing users to monitor their blood pressure at home, work or anywhere.
Irregular Heartbeat Detector:
Detects irregular heartbeats while your blood pressure is being measured. If an irregular heartbeat is detected, an indicator icon will appear, alerting you so you can consult with your medical professional.
With a touch of a button you can review an eight week history of your weekly morning and evening blood pressure averages.
200 Memory Storage:
100 memory storage for each person (200 total) with date and time stamp allows you to review the last 100 readings with a touch of a button.
Facts About Blood Pressure:
Your heart is your most important organ, and it's a good idea to know how well it's doing. With Omron home blood pressure monitors, you consistently get an accurate picture of your heart's health.
One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure in America. This condition can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness. With the Omron 7 SERIES wrist monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease. A healthy heart combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase your chances for a long, active life.
What the Numbers Mean:
Understanding your readings is easy with the Omron 7 SERIES blood pressure monitor. The easy-to-read screen displays your readings in large font and labels each number with a tab along the side.
- Systolic Pressure is the top number on the display. It's the pressure created as your heart contracts to pump blood throughout the body.
- Diastolic Pressure is the bottom number on the display. It's the pressure between beats, when your heart relaxes.
These numbers combine to give you your blood pressure reading (systolic over diastolic pressure).
How to Monitor + Tips:
Your blood pressure numbers often change. For instance, your blood pressure in the morning can be significantly different than at night, when you visit a doctor's office, or after exercising. By using an Omron blood pressure monitor at home, you're able to detect changes in your blood pressure any time you want.
Monitoring at Home is Easy:
To ensure an accurate reading, do not measure your blood pressure within 30 minutes of:
Place the blood pressure arm cuff on your left arm and sit quietly for approximately five minutes with both feet flat on the floor. Then, when you are ready to test, simply press the start button and the Omron monitor will do the rest.

CUSTOMER REVIEW By BookGuy:
I've been taking my own blood pressure readings since the 1980s. I have experience with the old, manual type upper-arm sleeves with stethoscope: digital, automatic [no stethoscope] upper-arm sleeves, and this wrist monitor. I even tried the old Omron finger blood pressure monitor many years ago which were reviewed as being inaccurate and which I don't think are sold anymore, except there are some cheap knockoffs [non-Omron] still being offered for sale.
My primary concern with any blood pressure measuring device is that it be accurate. Convenience is nice, but if it's inaccurate then it's not very useful, and could even be dangerous if relied upon.
I was convinced to try this wrist monitor after reading that it was well-rated by Consumer Reports magazine. I had been put off non-armcuff models after having tried the older Omron finger blood pressure monitor (as described above). While convenience isn't paramount to me, I wanted something that was less obtrusive and less noisy that I could use at work: but again, only if it were accurate.
The device is well made and convenient to use. It makes some noise, but it is less than the Omron HEM-711 model I was using previously. The noise is mostly from the small cuff inflating, but again, it isn't onerous. If it makes any sense, I'd say the noise is less than half of what the model HEM-711 puts out. There are beeps that tell you if the cuff is positioned correctly and for other user feedback, but they can be disabled if desired.
Now for the accuracy part:
When I first slapped it on it wasn't very accurate. The readings were too low for me. I'm familiar with my range, and these were about 20 points too low. So, okay, now I was bummed out. But... I still wanted to give it a fair shake remembering that Consumer Reports had given it good marks for accuracy. So I decided to be more rigorous about it.
What I did was make sure I was calm and relaxed and then proceeded to do a fairly standardized comparison between my Omron HEM-711 and this new Omron BP652 with several readings and short periods of rest between them. I found that if I used the BP652 correctly that it was accurate. So what did I do? Here's how I use it to get the best results:
* Mount it correctly on your wrist. It matters that it is aligned with your thumb, as outlined in the manual.
* Mount it correctly (part 2): It matters that you avoid that protruding bump from the bone in your wrist, as outlined in the manual. This means you have to mount the device to ride slightly higher on your wrist than you'd expect. It shouldn't be worn as you would a watch or a bracelet. It goes about 1/2" higher than that. It feels a little funny at first, as if it should be lower, but like I said, this positioning counts.
* Set the option for when it starts recording your blood pressure as "on2". I won't attempt to explain the details of how to configure this setting here, but when you read the instructions it'll make sense, and it's easy enough to do. Basically, that's the setting that makes sure you have it positioned correctly before it takes the blood pressure reading. It'll wait until you have it right. The default setting starts taking the reading after a short amount of time even if it isn't correctly positioned. I imagine the default setting is meant for certain cases where patients have some kind of mobility impairment, but I don't know that for sure.
* When it's in the right position, move it away from your chest. Don't move it up or down, just move it away from your chest so that it isn't touching your chest.
That's it. It seems to have similar readings to my Omron HEM-711. That's how to get the best readings from this device, but there are more things you need to do. I'm listing them separately because some of you know these things already, and they're not specific to this device. I'm listing them just in case it may benefit someone, because we're all in this together:
* Sit upright without straining. Try not to slouch too much or sit bolt upright.
* Keep your feet on the floor not on the footstool.
* Don't take your blood pressure reading after eating, smoking, or drinking alcohol. Wait at least 30-45 minutes.
* Don't talk while you're taking your blood pressure: it drives it up.
* Don't hold your breath or breath shallowly while taking your blood pressure thinking that if you stay completely still you'd get a better reading. Holding your breath or breathing very shallowly will deprive your blood of some oxygen and trigger the brain's response to increase your heart rate and thus, your blood pressure. You can breath regularly without negatively affecting your blood pressure.
* If you decide to buy a cuff-type monitor make sure that the cuff is around your heart level, too. If it's lower the blood pressure readings will be slightly elevated, and if it's too high the readings will be slightly too low. This advice is not meant to be taken too rigidly. Just don't have the cuff at head level or around your waist and you'll be fine.
* Don't walk around and then sit down and then immediately take your blood pressure. Wait a while for your body to acclimate to sitting and then take the reading.
That's it. And don't forget to take your meds if prescribed to you. : )
CUSTOMER REVIEW By Nor'easter:
I was very excited to be able to review this product as I have high blood pressure and have searched for years for an easy to use, accurate monitor. Years ago, the best I could find in the marketplace were upper arm, clunky automatic blood pressure monitors that were difficult to use and produced wild, varying results. The Omron Bp652 is an incredible leap forward for accurate and precise home monitoring of one's blood pressure via a wrist monitor. I of course need to state at the beginning of this review that if you have hypertension, you need to be under a doctor's care and this product does not replace a physician's care, however, it is a wonderful tool for monitoring at home how well your meds are , or are not, keeping your blood pressure under control.
To test the accuracy of this monitor, I took it with me to my doctor's office. My physician measured my bp as 120/81. Minutes later, I used the Omron which gave a measurement of 121/83. That is remarkably close to my physicians bp measurement. Now, I wanted to take a look at how precise the Omron was, i.e. were several measurements taken back to back close? Yes they were! Three back to back measurements by the Omron that night were 116/79, 118/81 and 118/82. Those measurements indicate a high degree of precision. So, in my limited testing that day, the Omron appeared to be exceptionally accurate and precise. I was very impressed.
I think the reason for the Omron's excellent measurements is in large part due to the superb instructions enclosed with the monitor in conjunction with excellent technology built into the monitor itself. Very good drawings and descriptions are given of how and where to correctly position the monitor on the wrist. Then there is the wonderful Heart Sense technology the Omron employs. For best results, the wrist should be at heart level, or in the "Heart Zone". To guide the user to this Zone, the monitor uses a system of orange and blue lights. If the light is orange, you are outside of the Zone and/or are not wearing the monitor correctly and will get an erroneous reading. If the monitor is being worn correctly and the wrist (with monitor) are placed within the Heart Zone, a blue light will come on and the cuff will begin inflating. At the very beginning of using this monitor I had a little bit of trouble finding the right position to wear the cuff on my wrist and I also had problems finding my Heart Zone. But the orange/blue light system led me very quickly to the correct way to wear the monitor and then position my wrist relative to my heart. It was a really interesting experience. When the Omron indicated (by the orange light) that everything was not optimal, I did not receive good readings. But when I got it right and the blue light popped on, the results were stunningly accurate and precise as evidenced by the data I gave earlier. It's really a very easy process, dummy proof (I can be one so I should know!) and very fast.
I really like this bp monitor and would highly recommend it to anyone with blood pressure issues. High blood pressure is an insidious but serious illness capable of killing over time, and it needs to be monitored. The Omron Bp652 is a wonderful home partner for the control of hypertension. And it also needs to be noted that the Omron will pick up an irregular heart beat and report that to the user- very valuable. Even if the pulse is regular, having the pulse rate measured is very convenient as I also suffer from tachycardia (an abnormally fast heart rate) so I can do various activities at home and give my doctor feedback on my heart rate.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS FROM CUSTOMERS:
Q: Does it take both right and left wrist readings?
A: This machine has the blue light indicator to let you know it is correct and accurate which is for the left wrist. The few times I tried it on the right wrist,, the red light would go on indicating it was not correct, but would still take the blood pressure. Don't count on accuracy when on the right wrist. Directions stated "left"wrist" only.
A: I just took it on both and the readings were the same.
A: yes mine does both wrists, has a setting on the bottom right side, also when I use mine on the left I can see a L that is showing on the bottom right screen,
Q: can I use the hqrp adapter?
A: Not that I know of - saw no place to plug in an adapter.
Q: How accuracy is it?
A: Yes it is accurate. I took it to my Doctor and had his nurse check it 3 times against their unit. It was within a few numbers of his.
A: When my doctor and I compared it to their medical instrument's reading it was very close--not right on but very close.
A: Compared to other automatic monitors, it is fairly accurate. It is only a couple of points different than when I use a regular blood pressure cup.
A: very accurate, I check my BP in the AM and PM everyday.
Q: is the cuff latex free?
A: Yes it is.
A: It appears to be.
Q: can you obtain larger wrist cuff if needed?
A: Yes, you could purchase cuffs separately.
Q: will it fit on my 9-1/8th inch wrist? (circumference)
A: The wrist belt on my Omron measure approximately 9 inches plus 1/2 inch to Velcro. You probably could fit it around your wrist but it would be close.
A: Yes. It has a velcro tail that will let it fit on King Kong's wrist. My wrist is about 8" and it fits comfortably. If your wrist is more than two-ish inches top to bottom, the spring loaded portion of the wrist band may be a little snug for complete comfort. It seems likely that it will work properly as well as fitting, but that's a different question.
A: I wrapped the Velcro closed strap around a thick candle, then measured the circumference of the candle. The strap will close around a 9.5" wrist. I do not know if it will give an accurate reading there was no way for me to check on that. If the manufacturer supplied that much strap, one assumes they tested it on larger wrists. If it does not work for you, you can always send it back.
A: Measured the wrist cuff and believe there is enough leeway to fit your 9 1/8th in. wrist.
A: Yes it can. I am over 385lbs and have a very large wrist and I have no trouble at all!
Q: Does the Wrist type work well with tiny wrists?
A: Yes. My patients range in size from tiny to very large. So far no problems. I'm sure there is a limit to how small and how large. At present I have not been limited.
A: Yes, very well. We used it on my 9 yr. old daughter who is very thin and actually got a valid reading. None of our old units would work.
Q: what is the cuff size?
A: The plastic cuff which goes around the wrist is approximately 6.5 inches when I stretched it out, with an additional 5 inches of velcro secure. When I leave it curled up the diameter of the cuff is 3 inches. Hopes that helps.
Q: does it record irregular heart beat?
A: According to the manual if it detects an irregular rhythm 2 or more times while being inflated it displays a irregular heartbeat symbol. Irregular is defined as more than 25% slower or faster than the average rhythm.
Q: What are the instructions for storage? Temperature? Humidity? Wondering if it would be good for mission work in Haiti...
A: The direction says not to subject it to extreme hot or cold temperatures or direct sunlight. It comes in a hard plastic carrying box. May not be what you want to take to that part of the world if you will experience extreme temperatures.
Q: Does it shows heart rate?
A: Yes, the unit shows blood pressure and pulse. It also keeps a record of all statistics.
Q: Does it measure my BP at anytime (24/24 - 7/7) ? Or do i have to press a button for my BP to be measured?
A: You have to push a button for it to start. You have to sit down on a chair, strap the device on with the velcro fastener strap, push the start button, then position the unit at the right angle across your chest (which is easy to do and a light comes on when you get it right), and then the unit starts up, tightens the strap and takes the readings.
Q: Can the Omron 7 Series Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor be used to monitor your blood pressure while you are doing exercise on a treadmill or elliptical?
A: As far as I am aware of, NO. It is my understanding this monitor is not to track fitness Blood Pressure. The instructions specifically say that you must be at a relaxed, sitting position, no walking, etc. while using the monitor.
Q: can it be calibrated?
A: The instruction booklet has no mention of calibration. I doubt you will find a bp monitor device for the general public that can be truly and accurately calibrated as that would take electronic calibration equipment run by a qualified calibration technician. The unit does have many functions and settings that other units don't have.
