Reasonably Fit-For-Purpose; Terrible Battery Indicator
We have used one of these models for 4 years. It was quite accurate -confirmed with yearly calibrations with our GP>
We replaced it at Chemist Warehouse today 04 March 2021. Same Model.
With new batteries (we tried 2 sets), the machine's battery logo on the screen always shows "Half Full" (i.e. Battery is running low).
The customer, using the device while touring or camping, can never know when it will run down.
This is a simple function - useless
Purchased in March 2021 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for $90.00.
Wrong readings to doctors
After using this at home . Thought might go doctors to get it checked . The readings where so far off . Really disappointed in the product. After all this my pressure was normal.
Purchased at Chemist Warehouse.
Memory function is useless
Bought it about one and half years back for $118. Although it’s easy to use and gives quite accurate readings but memory option is useless because it doesn’t show date and time of the reading. Has no Bluetooth connectivity to transfer the data to your phone. Where as aldi’s $30 worth of product has both of these features. Another thing it is missing is that there is no light in display so can not be used in dark.
Purchased in April 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for $118.00.
Simple to use and reasonably priced
I purchased this product to use at home on infrequent occasions. It is simple to use with a one push start/stop button, the display is easy to read and the cuff is simple to attach around your own arm. I thought the price was reasonable and would happily purchase this again. It is a small device and fits easily into a storage space.
Purchased in August 2020 at Chemist Warehouse for $100.00.
About 2 years old starts to pump but stops after a few seconds. Not worth packing and posting for warranty I will look somewhere else but don't know what to buy.

Omron Blood pressure monitor - faulty unreliable display
After a bout a month this expensive unit began showing random nonsensical characters on its display, so it became useless. Would not recommend at all. Lost the receipt, so no comeback with the pharmacist Terry White, where we bought it. Purchased to monitor high blood pressure of a family member, but will not buy another, and Omron seem to have a monopoly in Australian shops, so we have to use the GP or a pharmacist that offers blood pressure checks.
Purchased several years ago but now reminded of this waste of money as I am clearing out 'rubbish'.
Purchased in January 2016 at Terry White Chemists for $90.00.
Omron HEM7-12-1 Hassle free blood pressure monitoring
Bought this to replace an old manually pumped cuff monitor that had lost calibration and was at times frustrating to use. This monitor takes the hassle out of monitoring blood pressure because it is easy to use and accurate. Detects: incorrect cuff attachment, body movement. Indicates Hypertension by blinking heartbeat symbol if systolic or diastolic pressure is outside the standard range (above 135/85 mmHgl, Irregular heartbeat detection. You can select which reading to record, stores up to 30. Turn it off AFTER removing cuff.
A great little machine.
Runs beautifully and in accord with my General Practitioner's device. I have been using my machiine most days for over two years and have received an error message only once or twice, usually if my shirt sleeve was in the way. Well recommended.
Omron HEM7121 Blood pressure monitor
The Omron is HEM7121 Blood pressure monitor is easy to use and features 30 reading memory with date and time it also irregular heart beat. hypertension and body movement indicators
2 year wonder
hardly been used and when we went to use it wouldn't work. Changed batteries but arm cuff must be have hole in it.
keeps reading E3 (the arm cuff was inflated above 299 mmhg when inflating the cuff manually) but it doesn't inflate at all
Same as my doctor uses
Omron Standard Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor - HEM-7121
Works exactly as advertised - very happy with my purchase. Very easy to use. Very clear display.
Purchased online from Amcal for $89 with free shipping.
A blood pressure monitor that gives consistent, stable readings
This monitor is ideal for older folk who don't want or need high-tech embellishments. The 30 prior readings are available at the press of a button and the only detection warnings are those for irregular pulse rate or higher-than-desirable diastolic or systolic readings. These are flashed within the pulse rate window. Other symbols are shown only if the monitor's accuracy is compromised by not placing the cuff in correct location on the arm.
OMRON Blood Pressure Monitor HEM-7121
I found the Omron automatic BP monitor easy to operate and easy to self-administer. An indicator on the screen shows 'OK' if you have applied the cuff on your arm correctly. The results on the screen are large and easy to read. It stores up to 30 BP readings and uses four AA batteries.
I purchased this particular model because two other people I know who already had this model, gave positive feedback. I paid $89.95 after a discount of $21. I would recommend it for its simplicity and ease of use.
It works perfectly for me!
This model was recommended as it has all of the important functions without the bells and whistles that both my chemist and doctor said were unnecessary, and that could add up to $60 to the price. It performs well and the function that lets you know that the cuff is on properly is a winner. Simple to use and reliable.
Bought this because my doctor said keep an eye on pressure.9 out of 10 readings are E5 &E2. sent it back under warranty and I had to pay the postage. Lol. It was returned re- calibrated. Same results, error readings. This misleading device is serious material for my Garbage Bin if they'll accept it. Care for your health and ask and ask a Doctor.
Questions & Answers
Can you please tell me the error codes for this machine
My Omron 7121 reads typically about 13 mm less than the reading taken at my Doctors (using a flash manually pumped device). What can be done about this?
Ours stopped working after a month - the display started showing nonsense characters.
I suggest you take it back and claim a refund - an Aust warranty is 12 months by law.
Look for another brand.
