I just put it in the drawer of my desk, and use it to see how exercising, sunlight, relaxing, or other things affect my BP.

(I sound like a shill, but I have no connection or interest in the company.)
I bought a unit that looks as though Omron made it, but, it is Walgreen branded. We monitor my blood pressure daily. It's been working great thus far.
