Your new blood pressure cuff comes in a plastic clamshell case, just a little larger than a watch case. This makes it easy to take with you wherever you go, if need be. The unit itself resembles a very large watch, with a long Velcro band. Simply place the monitor on the underside of your wrist, and secure the Velcro strap. With the touch of a single button, the unit inflates the cuff, monitors your blood pressure for a few seconds, then reports systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and pulse. All this information is shown on the large display, as well as spoken aloud in a female voice that's easy to understand. The result is automatically saved, so you can recall the last 60 results. The unit automatically switches off after 1 minute to conserve battery power.
The measuring range is 0-299 mmHg, 40-180 beats per minute. The device is certified according to applicable standard (EN 1060/MDD/CE 0123). Finally, it takes 2 AAA batteries, which are not included.
