Out of the box

The Omron EVOLV is easy to place the arm. An additional advantage is that he can also be used over tight clothing. You turn the blood pressure monitor on by pressing the start / stop button. After this, the device will immediately measure. During the measurement you can see a heart blink. This heart blinks at the same pace as your heartbeat. When the blood pressure is measured, the top and bottom pressure appear on the screen. These measurements are stored on the device.

Error message

Error message Omron EVOLV

It is the intention that the blood pressure monitor measures the heart rate as accurately as possible. To test this, I started to execute a number of errors on purpose. The EVOLV watched them every time. When you wear too thick clothes, it is difficult for the device to get the right information. After 10 seconds the device also stopped and I got the message that there was clothing in the way. If you move too much, the measurement is also not reliable. This also registers the blood pressure monitor when I was spinning on my chair.

Application

Application Omron EVOLV

An important part of the measurement is the Omron Connect app. When you have downloaded the app you must first link it. You can do this simply by holding one of the buttons a little longer. The app helps you on your way. When you have done a new measurement, it is automatically sent to the app. If it takes a while, you can swipe down the screen to load again. You can also see old measurements to see if your blood pressure does not go up or down.

Conclusion

The Omron EVOLV does exactly what it promises. The cuff is easy to place your arm and the measurements are accurate. Error messages are recorded immediately, so you know when the measurements are reliable. You keep track of all measurements in the application. To use the memory function and to look back on multiple measurements, you do need a smartphone.
