Analysing my blood pressure with Braun iCheck 7 monitor

A couple of weeks back I wrote a post about a challenge I was set by Braun. They challenged me to analyse my blood pressure by using their iCheck 7 monitor. It’s a monitor that can give you your blood pressure results at home and not only that, they have a free app that keeps your results too so you can check through the month if it’s improving or maintaining. I have been analysing my blood pressure for the past couple of weeks now, and I’ve been using their free app; Braun Healthy Heart.

When I downloaded their app, it was really simple to connect the monitor via Bluetooth, and it had recorded some of the readings I had previously done a couple of days before. It’s easy to view your results on the app, and you are also able to email your results, which is great if you need to pass on your results to anyone. The chart is also colour coded; red, orange, yellow and green. Red being too high and green being the average healthy reading.

To analyse my blood pressure I’ve been trying to make a few changes to my lifestyle too. I’ve started to get back to eating more healthy and cutting down the snacking and pickings in between meals. Not only that, I’ve been drinking more water as well as trying to move around more too. Whether it’s doing a few little workouts from home, going for a longer walk after the school walk or anything else that will pick up my steps and movements during the day.

Not only has my blood pressure improved, but I feel better about myself too. I feel better and happier in myself. A bonus is knowing that my blood pressure readings are going the right way and it’s showing I’m a little healthier than before. Having high blood pressure does always worry me as my Dad, and my Nain have high blood pressure, but if I was ever to be really worried, I know now that I can always show the doctor my readings from the app by using the iCheck 7 monitor at home.

Not only can the app store your blood pressure reading, but you can also log your sleep, diet and exercise on a daily basis too. This will help you, even more, to keep on track and lead a healthier lifestyle. By having somewhere to log your daily meals, sleep tracking and exercise tracking can often be something that motivates you to carry on.

Do you ever keep track of your blood pressure? 


  1. This looks awesome with my blood pressure causing lots of health issues this year I could definitely do with one these excellent idea with app as well super review very informative

  2. This looks really clever, love how clear it all is on the app and easy to understand

  3. How cool to be able to monitor your own blood pressure at home. I've only ever had mine tested at the doctors and through pregnancy but I'd be interested in knowing more about it myself, especially as I'm making changes to my lifestyle and trying to improve my health. Such a clever device to have!

  4. This looks like a really useful device to have, I never monitor my blood pressure but I think it would be a great way to monitor my health x

  5. I never track mine, but I suspect when I go a little faint either my blood pressure is low or I need to eat. I love the sound of this to find out which it is. #KCACOLS

  6. This looks brilliant! My BP is often quite low and this looks like a really good way to monitor it and see what’s going on! Thanks for sharing

  7. This is actually, such a great product and something so incredibly handy to have at home, too!

  8. I’ve never tracked my blood pressure like this, but what a good idea. I really need to sort myself out, health-wise!

  9. This was really interesting. I've never thought to even check my blood pressure outside of pregnancy x

  10. Wouldn’t know where to start! Every time I have mine checked they say I’m dead apparently
    Mine is too low? Never had it checked out of pregnancy though #KCACOLS

  11. I have a fitbit, so I can see what my blood pressure is like when I exercise etc. I do need to improve my diet a little to make it a bit better. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time

  12. I don’t track my blood pressure but my mum and Mother in law does. I’ve alwaya been intrigued. I love love love the concept of this. I already have a health tracker bracelet similar to a Fitbit.

    I will defo look into these Braun monitors.


  13. This is a handy little app isn't it? I had high blood pressure when I gave birth 8 years ago and still have issues with having my bp taken but this is very handy if you need to keep on it without a visit to your gp. #kcacols

  14. I still don't actually get how blood pressure is measured or how you know what a normal blood pressure is! Maybe I should educate myself on that lol #KCACOLS
