Unit reads High, and inconsistent - the bluetooh and email is a nice feature

WARNING FOR THE BP761N USERS: The "OMRON WELLNESS" App is a pretty good app imo, however Omron recently came out with the "OMRON CONNECT" App which totally sucks imo. Evertime I would open the OMRON WELLNESS App, it would ask me to upgrade. So I finally did and it installed the OMRON CONNECT App, and transferred all my data from the OMRON WELLNESS App and would no longer allow me to use the origial WELLNESS App. I hated the new CONNECT App. So to fix, I uninstalled the OMRON CONNECT App, and had to create a new account (with a different email) in the OMRON WELLNESS App, using the Second User on the BP761N (yeah... it has a switch for User 1, and User 2). I had to go to the USER 2, because it would not let me pair User 1 to a new email account It gave me a message that User 1 was already being used. So.. that sucks imo. The difference in the original OMRON WELLNESS App and the OMRON CONNECT App is the latter makes you go through extra steps to actually see graphs of your BP readings. And it has a bunch of extra crap, and ads that you just don't need or want. It also makes you click a box to receives ads and promotions when you try to login with your account (the first time you log in). I'm guessing you have to buy the premium version to lose the ads.
This is my 2nd BP761N monitor. I dropped the first one on hard pavement, and the LCD broke. Both monitors always read higher than comparison with medical clinic BP measurements. I've done this comparison more than once, and averaged the difference between the BP761N and clinic measurements. So I use an excel spreadsheet (that I created) which subtracts the difference from the BP761N measurements... to give me a better idea of what my BP is actually running at. The problem however, is the BP761N is not consistent. Sometimes it's closer to the clinic's numbers, and sometimes it farther. But it does consistently read higher than the medical clinic's numbers.
You get what you pay for I suppose.
