Which Blood Pressure Monitor is right for me?

Published on July 9, 2018

Our helpful Blood Pressure Monitor Shopping Guide will help you find out…

Ideally, everyone should take a keen interest in their blood pressure as it is key to maintaining your health and wellbeing.  The best way to prevent high blood pressure is to take regular readings which can help you to take early action if you notice that things aren’t right.

Blood Pressure UK recommends checking your blood pressure when you are relaxed and comfortable, and when your heart is at resting pace (visit their website for more guidelines). Having a Blood Pressure Monitor at home means that you and your family can take and record your blood pressure at the most convenient times for everyone – and you can help each other to remember to use it regularly too.

Kinetik Wellbeing blood pressure monitors are designed to help you measure, monitor and manage your health in the comfort of your own home.  Each model in our Blood Pressure range comes with its own unique benefits and features…

But which Blood Pressure Monitor is best for you? 

These 5 quick questions will help you determine what you want and need from your blood pressure monitor:

How often do you think you will use your blood pressure monitor?

All of our monitors are designed to be easy to use and require minimal set up, so can take your blood pressure as often as you like without having to worry about a lengthy set up every time.

All of our monitors are activated with a single push of a button.

As a more regular user you may prefer the benefits of the Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor X2 Comfort which has a pre-formed comfort cuff, so removes the need to readjust it each time for a comfortable fit.

Do you need help understanding your readings?

If you are unfamiliar with what your blood pressure reading should be and what it actually is, our Traffic Light Feature will be a big help to you.  The screen backlight will turn red, amber or green to help you to determine the classification of your reading.  Remember that these are merely indicators and an amber or red screen should not be interpreted as a medical emergency.

For a blood pressure monitor with traffic light system, see Kinetik’s Fully Automatic Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor.

Who is your blood pressure monitor for?

Working as a family to maintain a healthy lifestyle is the perfect motivation to keep you on track.  The Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor X2 Comfort has a ‘Family Mode‘ setting – a 3 user memory with 60 memories for each user.

If your Blood Pressure Monitor is for one or two people, you might prefer the Kinetik Fully Automatic Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor, which has a 2 user memory (ideal for couples).

What sort of cuff is best for you?

Taking your Blood Pressure should be as comfortable as possible so we put a lot of consideration into our cuffs!  All Kinetik Blood Pressure Monitors (with the exception of our Wrist Monitors) have a universal cuff size measuring 22-42cm.

As its name suggests, the Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor X2 Comfort comes with our most comfortable cuff yet!  Not only is our cuff a one-size-fits-all, but its extra comfort aims to provide you with a hassle-free experience of blood pressure monitoring. The pre-formed cuff is easy to put on to your arm with one hand, making blood pressure measurement even simpler.

The Fully Automatic Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor and Fully Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor have a quick release cuff for extra ease of use.

If you prefer to take your blood pressure from your wrist rather than your upper arm, the Kinetik Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor and the Kinetik Advanced Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor are designed especially to meet your needs.

Would you like your data to link to your mobile phone?

If you use a Smartphone or tablet device to help manage your day to day life, the Kinetik Bluetooth Blood Pressure Monitor will be the perfect choice.  This monitor can be paired via Bluetooth 4.0 to your device, and using the free Kinetik Health App for Android or Apple devices you can record your readings each time.  The memory also stores the last 60 readings if you don’t have time to sync with the app right away.
