Omron HEM-650 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with APS (Advanced Positioning Sensor)

Omron”s Advanced Positioning Sensor automatically confirms the monitor is at heart level, ensuring an accurate reading. This monitor is easy to use and not only provides systolic/diastolic and pulse readings, but also advanced diagnostics such as an irregular heartbeat detector and an average of the last three blood pressure readings. With simple, silent and one-touch operation, an accurate and reliable blood pressure measurement is seconds away. Cuff fits wrist sized 5 1/4″ to 8 1/2″ in circumference.Wrist blood pressure monitors are portable, accurate and simple to use. They provide a convenient choice for those who want a second unit for away from home or who have trouble placing a cuff on their arm. The Omron HEM-650 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with APS (Advanced Positioning Sensor) uses Omron’s patented IntelliSense technology, which inflates the wrist cuff to the ideal level with each use and offers fast, personalized, and automatic inflation for maximum comfort. No adjustments are required to select an inflation level–especially convenient for hypertensive users and for people with certain arrhythmia or heart disorders, because their blood pressure is more likely to fluctuate. And with the HEM-650’s 90-memory recall with date and time stamp, as well as averaging capabilities for the last three readings, you can track your blood pressure and pulse progress as your work towards a healthier lifestyle. The HEM-650 also features a system that detects an irregular heartbeat, giving you an even better understanding of your heart’s health. Plus, you’ll have additional peace of mind knowing that the HEM-650 comes with a 5-year warranty.

Because the HEM-650 has a wrist cuff, it is particularly helpful if you have a larger than average sized arm. The monitor fits those with a wrist size of 5.25 to 8.5 inches, and it ensures easier and more comfortable use. Note, however, that a wrist monitor does require proper positioning of the device at the heart level. Correct cuff positioning is critical when monitoring blood pressure, fortunately, the HEM-650 features an advanced positioning sensor that automatically confirms that the cuff is level with the user’s heart, thereby ensuring an accurate reading.

It is critical that when using a blood pressure monitor the cuff is the appropriate size and is properly applied. An ill-fitting cuff or an incorrectly-applied cuff can result in inaccurate readings. Consult your doctor or the included instructions for the proper application of the cuff.

  1. User friendly I was looking for a device that would be easy for my 88 year-old mother to use on her own. She was told to monitor her blood pressure, but can’t use the public style because they are set to test the left arm. Because of prior surgery, her left arm can’t be used. So, when looking for the wrist type, this monitor had all the qualities I was looking for. When we received it and showed Mom how to use it, she found it easy to use and easy to read because the screen uses large print. She doesn’t have to write anything down. She takes it to her doctor and he can read back through the last 90 days (one reading per day). Because she has an occasional problem with ventricular tachycardia, the monitor also lets her know if the heart is beating irregularly with a simple picture. The cuff beeps when you have it positioned properly for inflation. This isn’t a function that is useful for Mom, because she is hard of hearing. But, fortunately, the beep isn’t really necessary because positioning is easy for everyone–fingertips on your shoulder. I have recommended this monitor to everyone. I am a dental hygienist and frequently have to monitor blood pressure readings on my patients. I bought one for use at my office. It is quite accurate according to my patients. So I’ve found nothing negative about this product.

  2. This one is done right! I need to take my blood pressure at least a couple of times a day. I have been using the OMRON 773-AC Omron HEM-773-AC Blood Pressure Monitor which is a full-size, table top system, with an upper-arm cuff. It works fine, but is large to pack on a trip. I got this wrist unit to travel with, and it’s amazing. First, the results agree to within a point or two with the big unit (which in turn agrees well with measurements at the doctor’s office). So, it’s consistently accurate. Second, it’s cool to use – at least for gadget freaks. You fasten it to your wrist, turn it on, and it starts beeping. Holding the elbow of the arm with the device on it with the opposite hand, you start raising your wrist toward your heart. As you near the right location, the beeping gets faster, and when you are right on, the machine starts running. You just hold it there for a bit until it stops running, and you’re done. Works every time. It’s actually easier to take BP with this machine than with the big one, so you give up nothing by going to the small system. Third, it’s nice and small – easy to pack away in a suitcase. My only gripe is that the memory holds only one set of readings, and my wife and I both use it – it’s handy to have two memories, as the big system does. But we can separate by values, and it all works out. It’s always good to see technology applied successfully, and OMRON seems to have done it in this case. It’s a winner.

  3. Accurate? I have a Microlife desktop model that I bought at Costco. The OMRON and the desktop are usually within a few points Systolic and Diastolic and on mark for pulse. The OMRON locks up when you try to use it for more than a couple of readings in short succession. Also, it seems to give inordinately low readings at times. It is very sensitive to positioning relative to heart level but I think it also is VERY sensitive to wrist positioning. The Beep to help in positioning is almost inaudible unless you are in a very quiet space. Good product for mobility but I would also have am arm cuff model to check accuracy.
