I've been using a Qardio blood pressure monitor for the past 4 years, and it has generally worked well - the companion app is accessible for controlling the monitor and reading the measurements when taken. It's not so great for accessibility of past measurements, but these can be accessed via the Health app.
Why I now want to throw it at the nearest wall, is that it has the worst designed battery compartment cover ever. The strip of plastic that holds the cover in place is the thickness of a hair and the strength of soft butter. I've now had 4 covers, and that strip has broken on each. Because of the nature of the battery compartment, this makes the monitor unusable unless you tape the cover firmly in place. And, taping together something that you need to rely on for accurate medical reasons simply doesn't seem like a good idea.
Qardio have replaced the covers for free in the past, but I am now just tired of this game.
I've taken a look at the Withings Connect, but there are a worrying number of comments on Amazon about unreliable readings. An accessible app is essential, but so also are accurate measurements.
So, do people have any recommendations? Thanks!
