We give two different kinds of blood pressure monitors a whirl – arm monitors which take a reading from the upper part of the arm, and wrist monitors which attach like a watch.

Our expert testers give every blood pressure monitor a thorough workout to find the models that:

  • are best at returning accurate blood pressure readings
  • are the easiest to use
  • display an irregular heartbeat
  • display hypertension.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which models have a low battery indicator and also display the time and date. Our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

CHOICE would like to thank GE Healthcare for supplying a Carescape V100 hospital grade blood pressure monitor for this test.
