Review: iHealth Clear Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor for Home

I had the opportunity to try iHealth Clear Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor ($79.99). It's a quality device to measure your blood pressure, with the added value of being able to connect to a free, attractive smart app. I tried it and got results similar to a professional device. The unit itself looks like an oversized iPhone dock with an LCD screen and would blend in just fine in any Apple enthusiast's home.

While there is a free app, you can use the iHealth Clear without an iPhone or iPad. It has settings for two people so you can track your data separately from a spouse, for example.

The iHealth Clear is reasonably priced; however, the cable could be a bit longer and the setup process in the app is a bit lengthy and complicated as you need to adjust Wi-Fi settings, etc. At least it's only needed once.

Pros

  • Compact, well designed
  • Smart app
  • Voice enabled

Cons

  • Cable could be longer
  • One-time setup process is lengthy

Final Verdict

If you are looking to track your blood pressure, you can do so easily at home and on the go with the compact iHealth Clear Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor.
