A convenient design in this particular ECG monitor is it’s built-in USB port. At the end of each day you can simply connect your Beurer ME80 to your Windows PC and download the day’s recordings in to the Beurer software for a detailed analysis.
Can this check blood pressure?
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 & systolic blood pressure while the heart pumps and rests.
This Beurer unit is a good product, but I still prefer the Kardia Mobile, it's in my (expert) opinion, a better value for money. Check it out here.
