blood pressure readings at home or some other fixed location. It
displays systolic and diastolic blood pressure values, and pulse rate
• It is also used for setting basic data on the Blood Pressure Monitor
Watch (BP-1B, Module No. 2196). See the "Module No. 2196 User's
Guide" for full details about setting the Watch's basic data.

KEEPING ATTUNED TO YOUR BLOOD
Your blood pressure is like a constant message from your body.
Monitoring your blood pressure provides you with vital feedback about
your current physical condition. High blood pressure, for example, often
shows no symptoms of its own, and so except for an abnormally high
measurement reading. Left undetected and untreated, high blood
pressure can often lead to more serious, life-threatening illness.
All of this means that daily blood pressure readings for the purpose of
detecting early warning signs from our bodies are an essential part of
any comprehensive personal health management program.
The CASIO Blood Pressure Monitor Watch and Base Unit make it
possible for you to take quick and easy blood pressure readings at
home and while you are out. Together, they provide you with
essential blood pressure data throughout the day.
The Base Unit is a cuff type digital blood pressure monitor that measures
your systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as your pulse rate. It is
also used for setting basic data on the Watch.
This Watch measures blood pressure using a fingertip pulse wave
detection system. After you use the Base Unit to measure your basic
data and send it to the Watch, you can use the Watch to take readings,
without applying pressure to your upper arm. Simply place your finger
onto the Watch's sensor and your blood pressure and pulse rate appear
in a few moments.
The Story of Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure represents the change in pressure against the interior of
artery walls, which is caused by blood being sent through the circulatory
system by each beat of the heart. There are actually two blood pressure
values: systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure.
Systolic blood pressure is the pressure exerted by the blood when the
heart contracts, causing artery walls to expand.
Diastolic blood pressure, on the other hand, is the pressure exerted by
the blood when the heart expands, and artery walls return to their
What causes blood pressure to change?
A variety of different factors can cause a change in blood pressure,
including age, climate, emotional stress, gender, living environment, and
• Average systolic blood pressure tends to rise with age due to natural
loss of elasticity in arterial walls.
