  • Decent Monitor but very buggy App...
    Reviewed by AtlantaGreg - September 17, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It’s always been a good idea to have a few basic health monitoring gizmos around your house these days, especially a blood pressure monitor. With the pandemic, more and more people are having virtual doctor’s visits now, so being able to give your doctor some basic readings helps them, as well as helps you keep tabs on your health on a daily basis. Millions have high blood pressure (some aren’t even aware they do), so a decent blood pressure monitor is pretty much an essential to keep handy. The Beurer BC57 wrist monitor fits on pretty much any sized wrist, including larger ones like mine. It’s battery powered (two AA batteries included) so no outlet is needed. It has a large, easy to read screen that will show you your Systole and Diastole pressure readings, the time and date, your heartrate, which user (1 or 2) is using the device per your choice, and even alert you if you have an irregular heartbeat. It can store up to 120 readings for up to the 2 users on the device itself, and can transmit those readings to it’s “Health Coach” app (for iPhones or Android) as well. Setup for the basics is ok, but you will need to read the included manual for all of the options, as it’s not intuitive – especially the Bluetooth setting (see below). The entire screen and body are just over 6 inches in width by 3.7 inches tall, and 2.5 inches thick. An included case allows you to store it safely when not in use. Once set up, you simply put this around your wrist with the screen facing up toward your face on the underside of your wrist. You should take your reading(s) at the same time each day, and be calm and not talk during the reading. Pressing the large top button starts the device, and the cuff will slowly tighten around your wrist. I didn’t find it to be uncomfortable at all. It only takes a few seconds, and then it releases it’s air and you have your reading on the screen. A color scale on the left side will let you see if you’re in a bad zone or not, but a chart is also included in the small booklet that comes with the device. I found it took fairly accurate readings when comparing them to a much larger and more elaborate device, the Beurer was a few points off – not enough to make a huge difference by any means. The app allows you to store your readings on your phone , and also allows you to store other readings for other Beurer devices like an Oxygen meter, Scale, Sleep monitor, etc. So if you stick with this brand, you could put all of them in the one app, in theory. That is… if you can get the app to work. The one problem for me though, is how hard it is to get the device to connect with the app to do this. Instructions are very vague, and there is no manual menu button where you can go straight into settings and turn blue tooth on and off – it’s done automatically during setup, and mine simply would not connect correctly or consistently. In this regard, they could have made the monitor MUCH easier to use if they had that menu setting button on the device. After several unsuccessful attempts to connect, I sought out help from a Beurer rep who replied that the app “is not compatible with the iPhone 12 – we are working to update it by Spring, 2022”. Um, well, Apple just released the iPhone 13, and many people have the 12 (like me), so that leaves out many who are going to have issues with this app. As a standalone wrist blood pressure monitor, the Beurer BC57 seems “ok”. It’s built well, fits well, is easy to read, and while the readings aren’t perfect, it takes accurate enough readings for daily monitoring at home. If you need a decent monitor just for that purpose and taking basic readings each day, it’s fine. But if the blue tooth and app features are what you seek, I can’t recommend it due to the issues with updates so it will work with at least some current phones. “Recommended with app reservations” would be my verdict here as you can find standalone variations of this without the app functions for less.

  • It’s worth it.
    Reviewed by mrjlwilliams - September 14, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like the size of this one, compared to the old one I’ve been using for the last 20 years or so. This one is just like the one use by my doctor. Easy to setup, the app is clearly marked making it easy to understand. The included case is refreshing, as my other one has a bag. I like this so much better.

  • As Good As Most Wrist BP Machines
    Reviewed by PapawJeff - September 15, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This wrist BP machine is fairly typical of the wrist type of devices. They are not perfect for everyone as they are very sensitive to body position, much more so than an upper are cuff. So it's very easy to get inaccurate readings. The cuff must be even with your heart. I find its readings to be consistently higher than those of my arm cuff which agrees very closely with the pump up cuff and stethoscope that my doctor uses. The time on the machine is not set when it links to your phone via Bluetooth and you have to read the procedure in the book to accomplish that function. But the Bluetooth transfer of data to the Health Coach App is very smooth and quick. And you can keep a record of home readings for your own reference or to share with your doctor or care giver. I also find the measurement time of this machine to be very quick. The display screen is clear with large easy to read numbers. Keeping in mind the characteristics of a wrist BP monitor and how to properly use it, this could be great if you have trouble using an arm machine for one reason or another

  • Compact and Easy to Use
    Reviewed by Alrobmoe - October 1, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is an excellent product for monitoring your blood pressure. Connect it to your phone via bluetooth and the results are sent right to your phone using the app. The app stores your results so you have a history of your readings. I have read that taking your blood pressure at the wrist is not the most accurate way to measure. But we tested against a regular blood pressure monitor that measures around the upper arm, and got similar results, so I don't think that a concern. Just make sure you have your arm at heart level when you measure. There are not many downsides to this product. There's one annoying part in setting up the app where you have to enter your birthdate. It didn't seem like you can manually enter the date. Instead, it pulls up a calendar that starts you in 1996, and you have to click back month by month until you reach your month and year (see picture). Well I was born in the 1970's, so that's a lot of months to click back! The other thing I will mention is that when the monitor tightens taking a blood pressure reading, it gets pretty tight. I've had my blood pressure taken a number of times, and don't remember it getting so tight! It doesn't last very long so not a huge deal, but it'll surprise you when you take your first reading. Highly recommend!

  • A disappointing device
    Reviewed by Winger81 - September 15, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Beurer Wrist Blood Pressure monitor was definitely quite a disappointment. As someone with a family full of high blood pressure members, I was excited to give this wrist-style cuff a try as it is a lot easier to put on and take off, especially alone (one-handed). However, the results are not at all believable. I measured my blood pressure several times and each time it was drastically overstating both the diastolic and systolic measurements compared to a health-grade arm cuff - both in automatic and manual measurements. According to the Beurer wrist monitor, I would likely be dead if these readings were accurate. Additionally, the initial set up is confusing - especially the bluetooth connection. The instructions could use a little TLC. For reference to display the inaccuracy of the wrist cuff, my blood pressure is typically about 130/80 - sitting in the correct position, etc. These measurements are not only unbelievable but also quite alarming - especially if someone was not familiar with how to measure manually and didn't have a healthcare professional in the household. I've uploaded a few pictures of "semi-reasonable" measurements - some of the measurements I was getting were 240/170, 220/191, 236/120 - very unreal. But I lost those readings after removing the batteries (several times) in an attempt to get Bluetooth connected. I would not recommend this product.
