Looking for a Blood Pressure Monitor?

Something we get asked about every day is whether these devices can also measure blood pressure. No, they can’t. These ECG devices monitor the electrical activity around the heart.

A blood pressure monitor measures the diastolic and systolic blood pressure while the heart pumps and rests. Kardia detects irregular heart rhythms and signs of atrial fibrillation, as well as atrial flutter with medical grade accuracy. 

We have a selection of some of the most popular blood pressure monitors here.

Review Summary

I am lucky enough to have a fit and healthy heart.

However, I still appreciate this products features and functions. AF is the leading cause of stroke.

Strokes are a worldwide killer. 90% of strokes could be avoided if the symptoms can be caught early enough to take preventative measures.

Kardia Mobile makes discovering and monitoring atrial fibrillation easy. I have given the Kardia Mobile ECG sensor and app a solid 5/5 stars in my review, something that seems to be reflected by their hundreds of customers.
