What customers say about "Key Specs"
Omron M3 Digital Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • Easy to use product with comfortable arm band which is quick to put on. Variations in readings taken in quick succession so I was concerned about the accuracy but my Dr says this is normal & should look only at the lower reading.
  • I have used the wrist monitor for years but does not compare in precision and graphic details of the measurements. This particular monitor is extremely good,and gives the confidence of accuracy to advise on appropriate actions if needed.
  • This does the job it's designed for very efficiently and with a high degree of accuracy. It tells you your systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings, pulse rate and a warning if an irregular heartbeat is detected, which is a new and very important feature.
  • I've had Omron monitors before and have always been very happy with their quality, accuracy and longevity. I love this unit.
  • I'm Totally disappointed from this product ! There are large differences between the measurements. Excessively quickly releases the air, resulting in incorrect measurement.
  • Readings are not correct the old M1 is much better.Some time there is a big difference..
Omron M6 Fully Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • The 360 degrees accuracy and the several memory slots are not important to me, though this model I know it is accurate and that is why I believe it is a good choice.
  • Works even if you're like myself and have an irregular heart rhythm, which seems to cause accuracy problems for some other monitors.
  • Easy to use, not compared the accuracy but no reason to believe it is not accurate.
  • Really brilliant gadget, been using it every day for weeks and pretty impressed. Easy to use, with simple straight forward instruction and spot on in terms of accuracy.
  • The day I received the monitor I took it to my GP and tested the accuracy of my monitor against his equipment which happened to be an older Omron model..The GP was impressed and the results was accurate and spot on.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Omron M3 Digital Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • Compact and very easy to use. The cuff is very simple to put on and readings seem accurate.
  • Compact design but very accurate, surprising since its battery operated.
Omron M6 Fully Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • This is a substantial, desk top sized blood pressure monitor. It is not a toy or anything close and very similar in design and use to monitors I now see being used in GP;s surgeries.
  • It is simple to use, in no small part, due to the shaped cuff which makes it easy to put on with one hand.
  • Comes with storage bag/soft case. Marked it down a star as size I feel is excessive for what it is and you need a bit of space to put it.
  • If you go away often I would suggest you getting a second smaller unit which is more portable.

What customers say about "Cuff"
Omron M3 Digital Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • Very easy to use, the cuff is virtually fool proof and the readings are clear with orange lights to indicate higher than desirable figures.
  • The cuff comes with a sturdier, non-fluffy type of velcro that feels very secure, and is sprung/molded so it automatically curls around your arm .
  • Does not hurt my arm when inflating, but I do make sure that the end of the cuff is round the arm and flat before inflating.
  • Works well but tight cuff for anyone. Doesn’t matter about the fact that it takes reading from all around the cuff if tube still has to be in same position.
  • I do like this machine, however, I do not like the cuff at all. It is a firm cuff and I find it quite uncomfortable to use, and it makes my arm sore too.
Omron M6 Fully Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • The cuff is cleverly designed as it is pre-formed into a hollow cylinder which makes it extremely easy to fit on yourself or on another person and then secure with the Velcro strip.
  • Fitting the (fairly stiff) cuff is straight forward, no issues at all during our measurements, with upper arm sizes of 43cm and 25cm respectively.
  • Fits all arm sizes, which is useful as mine is right on the border of medium and large.
  • Perfect blood pressure monitor even if your arm size is a little bit less than 22cm.
  • The Comfort Cuff is a unique pre-formed cuff that can be adjusted to suit a variety of arm sizes and shapes. so found it very easy to use and can get results at an instant without having to wait for GP appointment.

What customers say about "Features"
Omron M3 Digital Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • The machine is good as it records readings for 2 people, and lights up if the readings are high. It also notes your pulse rate and there is an 'ok' light that comes on to show that the cuff has been fitted correctly.
  • There is also a guest mode that won’t save the reading into memory. Display is large (to my elderly mother’s delight) and it’s reasonably compact. So far, the best BPM I have seen.
  • Great professional little device. Measures accurately, does everything it says in its' description. Better than one we had before with a cuff that fitted around the wrist and gave wildly different readings. The choice of arm cuff sizes is good too.
  • The intelli wrap cuff is a bonus feature that some models don't have. It is peace of mind to know that I will get an accurate reading even if I haven't managed to place the cuff in exactly the right position.
  • It tells you your systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings, pulse rate and a warning if an irregular heartbeat is detected, which is a new and very important feature.
  • Good device, easy to use, only down side, does not come with mains adaptor.
Omron M6 Fully Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
  • The device has the further feature of indicating correct fitting of the cuff as well as another indicator showing that the subject is moving excessively thus impeding accuracy during measurement.
  • Why do I have to hold a certain button for N amount of seconds for a certain feature? Just create another button for it, there's plenty of space.
  • Researched this and is a make recommended by my Gp. Good features such as weekly average, noting time of day measurements are taken ,enabled for two users and also instructs weather cufg has been correctly placed.
  • Excellent. Easy to use and memory feature is useful. Really needs a power supply charger to save on batteries so I suggest buying one of those with it.
  • This machine is easy to operate and I particularly like the heart rhythm check and the averaging blood pressure feature.
