Ozeri BP5K Talking Digital Blood Pressure Monitor Review

 
Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Operation & Intelligent Hypertension Indicator is quite a mouthful to say or type!  I applied for this campaign thinking that Benny could use a better blood pressure monitor.

Benny was the first to try the BP5K.  He had two different readings, the first time high and the second time normal.  The female voice talked him into the right position in which to place his arm.  The voice was loud so it kind of startles you when you first use the BP5K.  I think that's what accounts for the higher reading the first time. (I too had a high then a normal reading.)  Along with the voice there's a little arrow in the upper right hand corner indicating whether you need to raise or lower your arm into position.



PROS
  • Easy to use
  • Large display and font for nearly anyone to be able to read.
  • Memory for two users
  • Voice and visual guidance
  • Tells you if your reading is too high or optimal; no need to look it up
CONS
  • Voice is too loud
  • Positioning for proper reading is too tight, making the voice guidance annoying from the stammering
The voice reminds me of the Orbit Gum girl.  I tried to find a clip to go along with this post but discovered there's been more than one girl.  So now I don't know who's voice it is!

I received the product mentioned above for free using business2blogger.com.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I would use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Operation & Intelligent Hypertension Indicator isn't currently in stock but you can add it to your Amazon wish list to snag one later.

  2. Mmmm. The voice is too loud? My mother-in-law is loud too. I'm sure the device is much quieter. ;)

  3. I like that the voice will tell you how to adjust your arm. I have a monitor right now, but it doesn't do that. You're kind of left to guess. This sounds like a major improvement. I'd like the Orbit gum girl to tell me my BP! --Lisa

    1. If it wasn't so loud I'd like hearing the Orbit gum girl telling me my BP too. I love accents!

  4. UH oh. I hope my comment isn't going through twice. It didn't say it went through for approval so I'm posting it again. :) I just was commenting before on the sound issue. It sounds like they made it so that senior citizens who might be losing their hearing could benefit from it, but they definitely need to have an adjuster so you all can make the sound very low. It sounds like a bit of an inconvenience to have to redo the reading again because of that loud voice lol. Great review!

    1. Nope, it didn't show up twice ;)

      I'm now thinking it may be more that it's taking the blood pressure on the lower arm rather than the upper arm. Last night at the dentist's office they used a silent one and got a high reading.
