With the world the way it is right now, keeping an eye on your blood pressure, or BP, is very important. High blood pressure can indicate a lot of underlying medical issues that may need attention. This could include heart diseases or even strokes.
Blood pressure is commonly measured via devices called Sphygmomanometers. You may have seen the manual version of such a device in movies where a doctor places a cuff on a patient's arm and pumps air to raise the level of mercury vertically, and then listens in via a stethoscope. Thankfully, digital BP monitors can be used by pretty much anyone and do not require a second person to check. There are also certain monitors that forego the cuff entirely and use optical sensors to measure BP.
Here are some of the best blood pressure monitors you can buy in India. Do note that these devices are not ranked in any specific order and are selected based on a mix between features, price and average consumer ratings.
