My good friend that has high blood pressure recommended me the QardioArm he told me it was the latest in Innovacion and a great product. I’ve been using my QardioArm for about 5 months now. When I first got it I was really excited about this device having my readings stored on my smart phone sounded great and not having to lug my clunky blood pressure machine to my cardiologist sounded even better.
When I first got my QardioArm it was linked to my iPhone 7 and seemed to work pretty well then I upgrade it to my current device which is the iPhone X. I to bragged to my brother about how great the QardioArm was all the features that it had and how it seamlessly connected to my iPhone X it was easy to use and it was accurate and the best part, I didn’t need to bring that big clunky blood pressure machine which was like a flag in the breeze telling everybody that I had high blood pressure.
My friend called me a few weeks ago telling me he started having problems with his QardioArm go figure so did I it just didn’t want to connect anymore to my phone. It started to become an inconvenience, I even reset the Bluetooth connection as well as reset the QardioArm. And the worst part I uninstall the app and reinstalled it and what do you know I’m having the same problem as I had before I did all of this. My friend has the same exact problems. One thing that I find really annoying about this blood pressure cuff is that the app seems to eat my ram to the point that it becomes sluggish and unusable, after a reading I have to remove the cuff so that it disconnects from Bluetooth then close the app restart the app just to view my blood pressure and compare it to the other days. It’s also annoying to know that QardioArm has never even update this app wonder why it’s sluggish and eats ram. I’ve read all the comments and I see the responses from QardioArm they’re all the same that there was a problem when the app installed and that you should remove the app and reinstall it.
That’s all the developer ever says instead of fixing the darn app he just blames it on the installation. Let’s make something clear here when I installed the QardioArm app some five months ago it worked flawlessly for the first four months no problems. For if the app installed it self wrong it wouldn’t have worked in the beginning so it’s not the app it’s the crap software that the app is written on which is causing the problem, And let’s not forget Apple has updated iOS multiple times but QardioArm hasn’t updated their app not once so it’s not the app it’s the software that the app is built on which does not work with the current version of iOS and is causing problems such as crashes, eating large amounts of RAM, being sluggish, being unusable, it’s time to upgrade the app !!!
Lastly I would not recommend anybody buy this product for the simple fact that trying to communicate with QardioArm requires you write an email don’t provide a phone number no that makes sense !!! Instead let’s play email tag. On top of that QardioArm just blames everything on the app and makes you uninstall the app to reinstall it again another hassle. And let’s not forget when you do that you lose all of your blood pressure readings, how convenient !!!
Finally I just recently found a new Bluetooth blood pressure cuff made by Omron it’s the Omron Evolv. I recently saw it in a Rite Aid and it is $10 more than the QardioArm. I think it may be worth a try considering Omron is recommended by doctors and QardioArm isn’t. Thanks QardioArm for making me look like a complete donkey I told my doctor how great your device was I even told my doctor that she should start selling this product, I told my friends I told my brother and all you can ever say to your customers is when the app was installed it installed wrong you know and I know that’s complete BS and if you’re not gonna take responsibility for your product and keep up with the times and update your app then it’s time for me to Move on !!!!
**** Update After multiple emails to Qardio arm and no resolution I stopped using Qardio arm and I am currently using the number one brand Omron Evolv, It is a Bluetooth cuff and has an app and is more accurate than Qardio arms cuff. Side-by-side test the Qardio arm was 12 points off. The funny thing is you may not even have high blood pressure but the Qardio arm will tell you that you do by how in accurate readings are. The final straw was when I contacted Qardio arm and told them about how in accurate her blood pressure cuff was and the response was the app installed incorrectly and that I should reinstall it again you’ve got to be kidding me it’s the same excuse every time and honestly my blood pressure is more important then the lame excuse from Qardio arm good riddance !!!!
