In the most basic sense, blood pressure is a way of measuring how much force is being exerted on the walls of your blood vessels (artery) as blood flows through them.
Managing your blood pressure doesn’t have to take a lot of work. In fact, small improvements to your lifestyle can help.
Exercise: Just be a little more active. Walk instead of drive; take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.
Eat Smart: Try to find low-fat, low-sodium substituted that also taste great. Potassium found in bananas and carrots is nature’s best medicine for your heart.
Kick the Habits: Minimize your alcohol and cigarette intake.
Stifle Your Stress: Stress is a normal part of life. But too much can increase the risk of heart disease. Relax by doing things you enjoy (yoga, gardening, walking, etc.) and your heart can benefit.
Monitor Your Blood Pressure at Home: Monitoring your blood pressure at home on a regular basis provides you and your doctor with the information to best manage your blood pressure.
These are just some examples. Discuss with your doctor on other ways how you can better your heart.
Yes, it is quite normal for people’s blood pressure to change throughout the day and night, or in different settings where you may measure your blood pressure. Many things, such as stress levels, food or drink intake, activity levels, even time of day can all affect a person’s blood pressure reading at any given time. In fact, there are published studies that show a given person’s blood pressure can change by up to 20mm within a day, based on activity levels, food/drink intake, stress, etc. This is why it is important to take your blood pressure on a regular basis, and review the overall trend of your blood pressure readings with your doctor.

It’s been over a year since the new blood pressure guidelines were released and 103 million Americans were recategorized with high blood pressure. That’s nearly 1 in 2 of us. How are YOU doing?
“Out-of-office BP measurements are recommended to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension and for titration of BP-lowering medication, in conjunction with telehealth counseling or clinical intervention… Self monitoring of BP refers to the regular measurement of BP by an individual at home or elsewhere outside the clinic setting (source: AHA/ACC 2017 High Blood Pressure Clinical Practice Guideline).”
2013 ESH/ESC Guidelines for the Management of Arterial Hypertension defines high blood pressure readings obtained by self-measurement at home as:
Systolic Blood Pressure ≥ 135
Diastolic Blood Pressure ≥ 85
In terms of taking action based on your blood pressure readings, this should always be discussed and decided on between you and your doctor. You should never self-diagnose or adjust your medication if not prescribed by your doctor.

Both readings are important. One measures your blood pressure during a heart contraction and the other measures blood pressure between heart contractions. For your particular situation, you should discuss both measurement results with your doctor.
The American Heart Association recommends that anyone with, or at risk of high blood pressure, should monitor their blood pressure at home. Home blood pressure monitoring is one of the best methods of trending a person’s blood pressure in their own environment.

Use the same arm when measuring your blood pressure each time because values can vary between your arms. Consult your doctor if values differ substantially.
A mobile app (or application) is software designed to run on your smartphone or tablet. The Omron Connect Mobile App lets you wirelessly transfer data from your BP monitor to your smartphone or hand-held device and upload your readings to the App.
Our mobile app is available for FREE.
If you take a reading before pairing the monitor to your mobile device, all prior data is lost.
If you have a new phone, you will need to re-install the Omron Connect app. Do a forgot password and change your password.
While some other devices and operating systems may have worked in the past or on occasion, new updates may prevent them from working in the future.
Please don’t kill the app when data transfer is in progress (Manual/AutoSync). This might lead to data loss and you will not be able to view the data in the Mobile Application.
In the month chart we display ‘Average Readings per Day’ and in the year chart we display ‘Average Readings per Month.’
Location must be enabled for readings to be transferred from the BP Monitor to your mobile device, beginning with Marshmallow.
Yes, those functions are supported.
Please make sure to connect to the Internet before deleting the Mobile Application from your smartdevice. This is an offline App, which allows you to use the App without an internet connection.

Complete only works with the OMRON Connect app.
4 ‘AA’ alkaline batteries. Replace all 4 batteries at the same time when the low battery symbol is displayed on your device.
Pair your monitor with your smartphone to automatically set the date and time.
Yes, you can measure your blood pressure without pairing your Complete to a smart device. However, to use the EKG measurement function, you must be paired to a smart device and connected to the OMRON Connect mobile app.
No, it does not matter which arm you use to take a blood pressure measurement, but we recommend that you use the same arm each time to ensure your readings are the most accurate. Your blood pressure readings can differ between your right arm and your left arm. If your blood pressure readings between both arms differ substantially, check with your physician to determine which arm to use for your measurements going forward.
Due to FDA regulations, your first EKG reading will not be visible until a U.S. board-certified cardiologist reviews your first reading. The cardiologist will review your reading for free and will provide a medical interpretation within 24 hours. While the cardiologist is preparing your report, you will not be able to record any additional EKGs. After you receive your report notification by email, you will then be able to view and record additional EKGs.
Yes, you can measure your blood pressure and EKG at the same time. You can also take a blood pressure measurement and record an EKG separately.
Your Heart Rate is the number of times your heart beats in the span of one minute, and is measured using EKG technology. Your Pulse Rate refers to how many times your arteries expand and contract within one minute, and is measured using a blood pressure monitor. Heart Rate and Pulse Rate are calculated differently, and there may be a difference between both values. For more information, please refer to your Instruction Manual.
With new alkaline batteries, you can take approximately 300 readings before needing to replace them.
No, you must place your smart device on the designated smartphone stand on your monitor to obtain the most accurate reading.
