The Best Blood Pressure Monitors for Home Use

A dependable home blood pressure monitor can be a vital health management tool. After interviewing medical professionals, spending 30 hours researching more than 60 monitors since 2017, and testing 18 of them with the help of nursing students, we think the Beurer BM55 is the best machine for monitoring blood pressure at home. We found it consistent, easy to use and read, and comfortable on all arm sizes.

The Beurer BM55 has everything we want in a blood pressure monitor: It is validated by the three medical societies prioritized by the American Heart Association, it has the ability to detect an irregular heartbeat and the ability to average three readings, and it comes in the most attractive design we found with an easy-to-read backlit screen. The BM55’s adjustable cuff can fit most arms, and the machine can store readings for two users.

The A&D UA-767F is a clunky unit compared with the sleek BM55, and it lacks a backlit display, but it is consistent, easy to use, and comes with a comfortable cuff. While there is no way to transfer data from the machine to a computer or mobile device, this monitor is the only option we tested with the ability to store blood pressure readings for up to four people.

If you prefer a blood pressure monitor that can connect wirelessly to an app, consider the Omron Evolv. The machine-cuff combo is comfortable and straightforward to use and provided consistent readings in our testing. However, the on-cuff backlit display is smaller than that of the BM55, and the associated app’s privacy policy may be a dealbreaker for some.
