Omron HEM 7320 blood pressure monitor
Got told by GP that my blood pressure is mildly elevated and it would be a good idea to monitor it. Went to Choice site and saw that Omron devices featured well at the time of test publication. Went to local Chemist Warehouse and bought the Omron HEM 7320. A small and easily operated device. Battery operated. Comes with a good instruction manual and has a five year warranty. It has a pre-curved cuff which is easy to use once you get used to it. However it will not fit on those who have a large upper arm circumference. Limits are mentioned in th...e operation manual. I have been using it for a few weeks and one thing that I have noticed that sometimes it gives me an unexpectedly high systolic pressure reading. A repeat reading may be quite different, so I usually go for two out of three and look for consistency. Overall, I am quite happy with this unit.
Purchased in January 2021 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for $170.00.
Great Health Monitor
My extras coverage through Defence Health should pay for this - still to submit. A confirmation letter from doctor re high blood pressure may be required - best to get this first. Capital Chemist staff were very helpful in choosing and explaining.
Purchased in February 2020 at Capital Chemist for $179.00.
Top of the range
My extras coverage through Medibank and a confirmation letter from my doctor re high blood pressure got a choice of blood pressure monitors up to $200 with no out of pocket expenses. I went for this model because it has a sturdy case, making travelling with the monitor convenient. It has a contoured sleeve enabling foolproof application to the arm. Memory Function stores 90 sets and also has a guest mode. Easy to follow instruction booklet. AC Adapter is optional. Warranty pamphlet with easy instructions should there be a problem with the machine.
Purchased in December 2019 for $179.00.

Excellent With Suprisingly Long Battery Life
I have the NZ version (7322). Been very impressed with the unit. I bought it after I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and does a great job. Battery life is very impressive as use it every day and still going strong 6 months later.
Easy Fit Cuff - Very Accurate readings
As a health practitioner I've been using Omron for years due to being the only electronic blood pressure monitors that give consistently accurate results.
Purchased this one to replace an older model for home use - same great accurate readings with the benefits of a memory function for past readings & the easy-fit pre-molded cuff is awesome.
The standard cuffs from Omron are way too small for any mans arm and they're very hard to fit accurately - these pre-molded cuffs are large enough to fit most mens arms (except body-builders) and stay...put whilst being super comfortable and easy to fit. Just remember that you have to either have your unit serviced every 2 years by Omron to maintain accuracy (they have to be recalibrated) or you simply throw your old 2 year unit out and buy a new one (do not rely on results from a 2+ year old unit as it will not be accurate at all).
Questions & Answers
My 2.5-year-old unit now cuts out four or five times in a row with no explanation when beginning a reading, not getting more than half way to the final point. The battery is OK, the screen goes blank with no error message displayed.
