What's up, dock?

The dock fits Apple's minimalist aesthetic and holds an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch on its stand by way of the 30-pin connector.

Mini-USB

The Mini-USB port isn't the most up-to-date. We'd be more than happy with a USB port that let us use our iOS devices' chargers if we lost the included cable.

Ready, set, go

The cuff was easy to put on and fairly comfortable to wear, but we found it rather tall. It's technically one-size-fits-all, but it can easily span most of the height of an upper arm.

Sit back and relax

It takes a few seconds for the cuff to inflate and take a reading. The app reminds you to relax. Nervousness can increase your blood pressure, which is one reason that monitoring yourself in the comfort of your home can be useful.

Results

After taking your blood pressure, the app reads out your stats: date, time, systolic and diastolic readings, and your pulse.

Data crawl

The app can track and help interpret your numbers over time. iHealth will calculate your average, show where you stand with World Health Organization figures, and e-mail time-stamped results.
