My old and loyal one just died. Needing a replacement. Accuracy is the most essential. Tia

Get one that talks to your computer or phone. That way you can get the results to your doctor easily.
Note that Mac support might be problematic. I need to run Windows in a VM for my (old) Omron.

I've been looking at the Beurer too, but there are a lot of low-rated reviews on the big river site, which isn't much of an issue with Costco's return policy. Still gives me pause.

Some of Walmart's Relion brand are made by Omron. It will say so on the package.

Is there big difference in price between the one sold at CostCo (we don't have a membership) or Target and Walmart? If not then we will check it out at our local Target or Walmart.

I bought 2 units of this model. One for me, one for parents. I highly recommend it, although it appears it is no longer sold. Maybe they have a similar model out there.

I really like that it measures the pressure as it inflates and let's go as soon it is done. Other devices inflate to a preset value and then they take the measurements as they deflate. This adds unnecessary time and also goes to a predefined pressure which may be much higher than what is needed for your particular case. This one avoids that issue.

i use a few Greater Goods products and recently acquired this BP monitor GreaterGoods Bluetooth Full Set Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff and Kit free for agreeing to fill out a marketing survey. at first i questioned it's accuracy but maybe it was just user error as my readings stopped being in the stratosphere. the band seemed more cumbersome than my Omron and i fumbled with it a lot at first. i do like that it bluetooth readings to an app and thus Apple Health.

I use Omron BP785N and have been very satisfied with it. I think there is a newer model. 2 users, saves readings and you can recall them something like 200 readings. Lets you know if you messed up the reading. Can us AC adapter with it if you desire.

I did NOT pay what Amazon is currently asking for one. I think I bought it at Walmart for a lot cheaper and I think Walgreens may have a house brand made by them of the same model.

I have an Omron Series 10 of some late vintage that's adequate and speaks iPhone, but it's been discontinued. There's a newer one, the Omron Platinum at $75.

Whether or not it's worth it, I think there are adequate cheaper options, but at least one source says it's very accurate.

I had a bp monitor that displayed the results on my phone. Within a year, an iOS change rendered it useless.

Another vote for Omron, which is known for accuracy.

Yet another vote for Omron. Used in many Drs offices. I have two. One in my office and one at home. Very accurate.

Omron, they're the vendor of choice @ Johns Hopkins.
