Usually, BP monitors are affordable, with many costing less than Rs. 2000. However, while choosing a monitor do keep these points in mind:
BP monitors have two major types. One that can be worn on your wrist and the other on the arm. Do note, that the monitors worn on the wrist are less accurate compared to the ones worn on the arm.
Generally there are two basic types of monitors – Aneroid and Digital.
With Aneroid you can measure your BP manually, they are affordable, but can be easily damaged.
Digital monitors show the results on small screens. They are user-friendly and can be followed easily.
