Super easy, convenient and it’s accurate!

July 14, 2011

Color Name:White/Green
I bought the Withings scale about a month ago and love it. Between it and the Withings app my iPad and iPhone, I keep tabs on my weight loss progress. It’s easy and convenient. When I saw that Withings was coming out with a blood pressure monitor, I asked my friends at MaxBorges if I could test a unit. I received the unit today and immediately tried it out. Here’s my reactions:

What I like about the unit:

1. It’s super easy to set up! I pulled it out of the box, connected it to my iPad with the cable that is attached to the monitor, and it was all ready to go! Three minutes or less! Since I had already configured my scale, it immediately recognized who I was and was ready to go.

2. You can configure your blood pressure monitor for more than one person, so I set my husband up, too. A simple tap on user icon changes the user.

3. You can configure the monitor to take your blood pressure one time or take it three times and average the results. (I like this because I have a phobia to blood pressure cuffs and always read high the first time.)

4. The results were accurate compared to a blood pressure monitor I own that was recommended to me by my doctor.

5. My iPad and iPhone keeps track of my daily progress – weight, fat, and lean with the Withings scale and blood pressure with the Withings monitor. You can even track results both in the morning and evening. The results can be read as a listing or as a graph.

6. It stores neatly in a small box.

What I didn’t like:

1. The results! I hadn’t taken my blood pressure for a while and I discovered my blood pressure was high again.

2. I thought maybe it was inaccurate, so I had my husband take his and then checked it against the monitor my doctor recommended. I was disappointed to see that the Withings was accurate. ‘ Time to go back to eating healthier again.

If you’re looking for an easy, convenient way to track your blood pressure and weight, I strongly recommend the Withings products. It couldn’t be easier!

Great blood monitor

I have the Withings scale and like it. I thus waited for this monitor for many months and bought it immediately once it was approved by the FDA. Shipping from Withings was slow but the blood pressure monitor has been great. I like the auto mode where the device automatically takes 3 measurements. This way the numbers are more accurate. I also like the morning vs evening categories. It looks like the Withings folk know what they are doing. The monitor also looks nice and matches with the upscale Apple image.

Easy Set-up, Works Great but a Bit Pricey

August 28, 2011

Color Name:White/Green|Amazon Verified Purchase
I ordered the WIthings Scale and BP-800 together as a package and the BP monitor took about a week longer to arrive. For some reason, the Scale is delivered from Amazon while the BP monitor is delivered directly from Withings. I received good email updates from WIthings on the status of the delivery and the BP monitor has proven to be worth the wait. The BP monitor comes in a cool square box where the BP monitor easily slides out of its container. The set-up is incredibly simple – – simply download the Withings free application to your Iphone or other wireless device and then plug the BP monitor into your device. There are no wifi set-up hassles with your home network. Your wireless device acts as the BP monitor screen. There are some pretty good illustrative instructions in the application on how to take your blood pressure, and with the touch of one button, the BP monitor works flawlessly. The cuff is comfortable, but has a rather large rod down the middle of the cuff that contains the cuff inflater that takes a bit to get used to. Your blood pressure and Pulse results are stored automatically within the Withings application on your device, and also online at the Withings web site. You can view your results as a daily report or in graphical form, and even email them to your doctor.

I am really impressed with the ease of set-up, the smooth operation, the timeliness of the results being sent to your Iphone, and the cool tracking/reporting of your results within the Withings application. This device makes taking and tracking your blood pressure and pulse readings kind of fun. The downside is the BP-800 is pricier than the BP monitor you can buy at the drug store and the BP-800 took about a week to be delivered directly from Withings. However, if you need to track your blood pressure regularly, the BP-800 is worth the money. Overall, if you have the money, and enjoy running your life through your Iphone, this is a great product.
