Omron 7 Series Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor, Product Overview

I have had a stroke and strokes run in my family so monitoring my blood pressure consistently is critical.

I do see my doctor fairly regularly, about every 6 months, but waiting that long to find out what my blood pressure is will not suffice. There are times when I can feel my blood pressure rising and I need to understand what is happening in order to take action to start lowering it.

I have used several at-home blood pressure monitors in the past and they did well enough for me, however, just recently I completed a more extensive review of wrist blood pressure monitors and found that the Omron 7 series blood pressure monitor was nearly always at the top of other website recommendations.

I ordered my Omron 7 through Amazon.com and received it within seven days. I could have gotten it quicker but I selected the “Free” shipping.

Opening Up my Omron Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor

The first thing I noticed was it had a real sharp packaging. Not that it’s a big deal but it looked like quality without even opening up the box. Omron 7 PackagingThe monitor is enclosed inside a black plastic case which comes inside bubble wrap for extra protection.

There are instruction in three different languages; English, Spanish and French.

I could tell immediately after opening the plastic case, which protects the monitor, that this monitor looked significantly smaller and nicer, in my opinion. My last wrist blood pressure monitor was purchased at a national pharmaceutical chain.

Great! It comes with batteries! I have been disappointed lately with several purchases where the batteries have not been included.

Getting Started Instructions

There is a “Getting Started” manual included that makes it extremely easy to set the time and date. After this it was pretty much touch the BP monitor with instructionsstart button and watch it go to work. Well, I did read farther and leaned a few more important things before using it for the first time.

Step 4 in the Getting Started manual has a great graphic about the proper placement of your arm on a table with the recommended vertical location in relationship to your heart. The monitor will display an orange light if it is too high or low and a blue light will come on when the height is in a perfect vertical position with your heart.

There are a few good “Frequently Asked Questions” in the back with one that I really appreciated. It was the under “Other Important Tips” and it recommended sitting quietly for 5 minutes before taking your blood pressure measurement.

There is also a caution note about not eating, exercising, bathing, smoking or drinking alcohol in the 30 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure.

After this there is a notification to register the product and I was taken to the Omron product page. The registration process was quick and easy.Omron Wellness App

Next, I was asked if I wanted to install the Omron Wellness app on my smart phone, which I did. This was another easy process. It took more time for the app to download than it took me to set myself up as a new user.

I almost forgot to tell you. Omron has some easy to follow instructions about syncing the blood pressure monitor to your smart phone, if you have one. Fortunately I have a smart phone and in no time, my monitor was synced to my phone.

So, now everything was setup and it was time for me to use my new blood pressure monitor for the first time.

My First Blood Pressure Reading with the Omron 7

It was easy and straight forward to get the monitor properly positioned on my wrist. I was surprised as to how quiet the motor was. I could barely hear it, at least in relation to my old blood pressure monitors. It seemed like it only took 30 seconds before I had my first at-home Omron blood pressure check up.

It’s been about 5 days since I bought the Omron 7 Series blood pressure monitor and I absolutely love it. I keep it on my desk, right in front of me, so I am easily reminded to check my blood pressure every day.

My doctor asked me to take my blood pressure twice per day, which I am not doing well at. I do take it once a day and now I have 4 readings that can be graphed.

Once the blood pressure monitor finishes, the Omron monitor immediately syncs the current reading to my phone and then the data is displayed in a graph and tabular form. Here is a picture of the reading from my phone.

How cool is this? The Omron 7 monitor is small and easy to store. It is quick to get it out and fitted onto my wrist. The blood pressure test only takes about 30 seconds and my new reading is immediately uploaded to my phone without me having to do anything, other than put the monitor back into it’s case.Omron 7 Series Box

The positives are numerous and I personally don’t see any negatives. The only negative anyone may be able to bring up is the fluctuation in the readings from home to the doctor’s office, but that is always going to happen. It’s best to take your blood pressure often enough that you understand the difference in the readings and use the Omron monitor to give you an indication if your blood pressure is too high.

The Omron 7 is the Best B.P. Monitor I Have Ever Owned

Like I said earlier, I have had several arm and wrist blood pressure monitors in the past and there is just no comparison between the others and this Omron 7 Series Blood Pressure Monitor.

I’m glad I bought it and I believe you will be just as happy when you get yours delivered to your door.

  1. Hi, I like the product. It is very inexpensive and seems to be easy to use. I also like the way it is presented, in a hard shell and batteries included. No frustrating blood pressure pushing stress getting batteries before trying the function.
    I will definitely recommend the product and your article to anyone in need.

    1. I appreciate it. It’s not often that I come across a product that I will give a 10 out 10 on. Maybe I shouldn’t have because nothing is truly perfect, however, it surpassed all of my expectations and I love this monitor. I actually couldn’t believe how quiet it was.

  2. This looks like a great product, and so discreet looking as well.

    I don’t have high blood pressure, however, my wife who does have it would really benefit from this product.

    Just curious, how long are the batteries supposto last for?

    I booked marked your page. great review!

    1. We probably all know someone who needs to check their blood pressure more regularly.

      The battery life on two AAA batteries will vary greatly, however, since a blood pressure monitor is typically being used just once per day, it should last at least 6 months. My older wrist blood pressure monitor is going on 9 months or more. I didn’t use it every day though.

  3. Finally a product review from an actual user of the product! Thank you for this very insightful review Rick. It is so hard to find a legitimate review anymore and you nailed it. I will definitely be looking into this monitor further. I will be back to see what you review next.

    1. I need to find ways to review actual products without buying all of them. I bought this one because I really needed it so it was a win win situation.

      It is obvious isn’t it, when you can tell someone actually used a product, even if they don’t show pictures or a video?

      Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review.

    1. Thank you. I am working hard on becoming more healthy.

      I’m actually going into see the Doc tomorrow, and I’m hoping to not have a fight about medication. I know blood pressure is critical to control but I am so against prescriptions to fix it. That’s another story for another day.
