Garmin Index BPM Review

Fitness & racing go hand in hand, so it’s important to stay at the top of your game with the lease amount of stress.  ZDNET wrote a great review about the new Garmin INDEX BPM blood pressure monitor:

The Garmin Index BPM is a bit larger than I anticipated with a monitor size of 58x145x47mm and 320 grams. The main unit holds four AAA batteries that are rated to provide up to nine months of battery life, though the rating will vary based on how often you use the reader, of course. In terms of fit, the unit rests on the inside of my upper arm without much discomfort, but some people may find it bulky to use. For example, velcro is used to adjust the cuff length and can be a bit of a challenge for those with smaller arms where the extra cuff length may not secure to the vertical velcro material that is spaced a couple of inches apart.

The good thing is that are no hoses or wires stemming out from the device, which makes it less of a hassle to set up and put away. Garmin says that the soft cuff piece is designed to fit arm sizes from 9 to 16.5 inches in circumference, and I personally had no issues fitting into it.
