Blood pressure monitor

The best blood pressure monitors provide accurate readings and are a breeze to use. We’ve tested blood pressure monitors from big-name brands including Boots, Braun and Omron. Below, we've rounded up our pick of the very best, which includes some models that cost less than £30.

Our tough lab testing has uncovered brilliantly reliable Best Buy blood pressure monitors, whether you want an upper arm cuff for use at home or a lightweight, portable wrist cuff.

But not all blood pressure monitors are worth your money– we’ve also uncovered disastrous Don’t Buys that simply aren’t up to the job. These inaccurate devices are a waste of time and money and could also cause you unnecessary worry.

    An expensive device, which logs blood pressure accurately and comes with plenty of extra features. These include Bluetooth connectivity (allowing you to control it from a mobile, and use the smartphone app to view trends in your blood pressure) and the ability to detect irregular heart beat.

    It's a basic model, but, what it does, it does well. It monitors blood pressure accurately, the display is clear and easily readable, and it's easy to attach and remove the cuff.

    This device measures blood pressure incredibly accurately - which is unusual for a wrist-based monitor. It has an irregular heartbeat detector, and it's one of the most lightweight blood pressure monitors we've tested (making it easily transportable when you're on holiday) but it's fairly basic in terms of features apart from that.

How much do I need to spend on a blood pressure monitor?

We’ve tested blood pressure monitors that range in price from £20 right up to £100. Our expert tests have proved that price has no correlation with the accuracy of a device, so an expensive monitor isn't always your best option.

Paying more for a blood pressure monitor often means you'll be treated to a wider range of features. Many 'premium' models can memorise your readings, date and time-stamp your readings or link wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet.

Although you may be tempted to buy a blood pressure monitor that includes all the bells and whistles, we’ve uncovered some expensive, feature-packed models that scored a measly one star for accuracy, but some brilliant Best Buys for less than £30. That’s where our expert reviews can help.
