I just bought this when my old arm model (not Omron) gave out after 10 years. I like the wrist unit better - but I can't download to the computer!? Really??? Even my 10 year old machine had computer download capability. Apologize, Omron...This is the 21st century, join us.
A very accurate and sensitive pedometer. Reads my steps whether speed walking or casually walking. Found that it counts fast steps best when clipped to my waistband in the back by my spine. Only thing of concern is that the device is not waterproof (as Omron warns) and I ruin the first one when it got wet with sweat because I forgot the clip and stuck it inside my waistband. Leave it sticking out or in the pocket. .
Omron HEM-711 Intelli sense I bought twenty or more years ago is still working fine. But, this one, BP629N, is much smaller - very handy to carry around, from room to room at home or take it with you for a trip. The numbers pop up much faster than my older one. Over all , I am happy with the purchase.
My doctor loaned me the Omron 3 to use for 6 weeks to check daily and adjust medication. Once it was under control I returned it to the office, but wanted to continue monitoring. The price is great and the product is really easy to understand and use.
