What does the app do?

This app allows the user to record and store blood pressure readings. It logs blood pressure related information such as systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings, date and time of reading, site (arm, wrist or leg) and position (seated, upright, horizontal). It also has provision to record heart rate (pulse), weight (in kilograms or pounds) and comments.

 Cons     ✘    

  • You can easily graph your progress
  • You can set multiple variables with each blood pressure recording, such as arm used, body position and tags
  • You have a lot of control over the settings
  • The app incorrectly prioritises diastolic pressure over systolic pressure when determining a classification. For example 280/60 is called low, while 280/70 is called hypertension stage II. This could theoretically cause the patient to make an incorrect judgment of when to see their doctor. Both 280/60 and 280/70 are actually severe hypertension generally requiring urgent assessment.
  • Overemphasis of blood pressure classification rather than setting an individualised blood pressure target
  • User interface is clunky and ads are distracting
