If you don’t have time to use your local pharmacy’s blood pressure monitor, but would like to know just how close you are to blowing a gasket, the Panasonic EW-BU70 provides the same functionality in the comfort of your own home. The inflatable cuff can be easily adjusted by the wearer (you don’t need someone else’s help to tighten it) and is designed to be used on either arm. The unit also features an oversized LCD screen making it easy to read even for the elderly, and a new SD card slot allowing you to transfer data from up to 5 users to your PC (or your doctor’s PC) where it can be managed in your favorite spreadsheet application.
There’s no pricing info at this time, but the EW-BU70 should be available come March 1.
