The cuff of the monitor is very flexible and can fit from pretty small arms to very large one. Koogeek’s app is very simple and can operate by anyone. The one problem we faced that, if the device is not connected to an app or Wifi then it won’t able to store the result more than few seconds. Otherwise, it is the excellent smart blood pressure monitor at a reasonable price which is $67.99 (Amazon) or INR 2,719 (Tomtom).

In today’s polluted environment and our 8-hour sedentary jobs are killing our health slowly. The hectic lifestyle and unhealthy junk food can cause multiple types of health-related issues such as a headache, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and others. What do I suggest? Just take out at least 30 minutes from your busy schedule for exercise, eat healthy food and monitor your health intermittently. We have a lot of gadgets like smart wristbands those are meant to monitor our heart rates, footsteps, amount of water we drink, weight and more. But still, they are lag behind somewhere in the front of professional health monitoring systems.

Koogeek Smart Blood pressure Monitor review verdict:
This blood pressure monitor is really very easy to setup and use. Out of the box, I took only 15 minutes to understand and measuring my blood pressure. You can take the help of the instructional manual too. The quality of the device is excellent and enough durable to bear the shocks. To charge the monitor you can use your smartphone charger or connect it to the USB port of Laptop or Desktop. The cuff of the monitor is very flexible and can fit from pretty small arms to very large one. Its apps interface is very simple to understand too and can be operated by anyone without any connectivity issues (at least with our review unit).
The one problem we faced that, if the device is not connected to an app or Wifi then it won’t able to store the result more than few seconds. Also to get the accurate and precise result, we suggest to measure the blood pressure at least two or three times, however, there was no huge difference in the reading in our case. Overall, it is the excellent smart blood pressure monitor at a reasonable price, which is $67.99 (Amazon) or INR 2719 (Tomtom)
