With this in mind, investing in technology to help keep yourself fit and healthy is far from a waste of money.
The market is awash with all kinds of kit to help monitor every aspect of our lives, however in this post I am focusing on the Ozeri CardioTech Premium Series BP3T.
Ozeri, an American based company, are a not only manufacturers of health and fitness wearable tech, but also kitchen, home and bathroom appliances and accessories. The CadioTech product range is clinically proven technology, which is in use in hospitals around the world.
Ozeri have in the past won awards for their product design, so off the bat it was clear that the BP3T was going to be of a premium design.
Inside the BP3T box is the Ozeri branded carry case, manual, BP3T device and cuff with flexible rubber tube. The BP3T feels very well constructed, the device is perhaps slightly too large to hold in the palm of your hand with its dimensions of 18.1 x 10.2 x 3.8 cm. However with its simple one-touch operation, there really is no need to keep hold of the control unit.
The arm cuff also feels very well made, with an ample amount of stitching holding the cuff together, and some very strong velcro making it very easy to strap to your arm. Printed on the cuff are clear instructions of use, meaning you don’t have to scramble around for the user guide each time you want to use the device.
The slider on the top corner of the LCD digital display makes it easy to switch between users, enabling quick and easy shared use for up to 2 people. As the device is capable of holding 120 readings (60 per user) keeping track of your health over time couldn’t be more straightforward.
Although this is the first blood pressure monitor I have ever owned, it took me longer to strap the cuff to my arm then it did to take and fully understand the reading. Once the device has finished taking and analysing the readings, the digital display clearly displays not only all the in-depth analysis but also a simple to understand rating, which includes ratings: Optimal, Normal, High-Normal, Mild, Moderate and Severe.
The box also contains an easy to read and understand user manual, covering all the normal languages found in normal user guides. The guide offers advice around not only the usage of the BP3T, but also what to do with your readings.
The BP3T can run on either 4 x AAA batteries, which come in the box. Or an optional 6V charger.
