Rate this product

The Color Doctor is a portable blood pressure monitor that alerts the user by color if his or her blood pressure is normal, above normal or high.


After taking a blood pressure reading, the screen on the device will either stay green, indicating normal blood pressure, turn yellow, indicating above normal blood pressure, or turn red, indicating high blood pressure. Simply strap the Color Doctor onto the user's wrist and you will get the result in less than a minute.

The device will also display the user's heartbeat and will indicate if the heartbeat is normal or irregular. There is also a date and time feature on the display.

The product can be used by two different users, and store separate information for each user. Between two users, this will store up to ninety blood pressure readings.

It also comes with a convenient travel case, allowing the user to take it with them everywhere they go.

Features

  • Easy to Use

    To use the Color Doctor, simply place the device on your wrist and secure it with the Velcro tab attached to the monitor. A person can do this themselves or have help. There is no adjusting or pumping involved. The device will automatically detect the user's pulse and take the blood pressure reading. Once the blood pressure is taken, the monitor can be removed from the wrist and the reading will be saved.

  • Fast

    The user will get his or her blood pressure result within a minute.

  • Simple to Understand

    The monitor is designed to be easy to understand. Not only will it show the traditional blood pressure reading on the display, but the display will change color. As soon as the blood pressure is taken, the display will stay green if the user's pressure is normal, turn yellow if the pressure is above normal, and turn red if the pressure is high.

  • Small

    Unlike conventional blood pressure devices, the Color Doctor is small and portable. There are no bulky arm wraps or tubes. The product is small enough to fit into a purse and can be taken anywhere.

  • Additional Readings

    Not only will this product take your blood pressure, it will also tell your heart rate and indicate if your heart rate is irregular. It also displays the date and time, making it easy to record and keep track of all of the details.

  • Stores Readings

    Up to 90 readings between two different users can be stored on one monitor. A person can then take the monitor to his or her doctor so the doctor can see the history of his or her blood pressure.

  • Good for Two Users

    Two different people can use this and have their different readings saved.

  • Travel Case

    Each monitor comes with a handy travel case which allows a person to easily carry the monitor everywhere they go.

Benefits

  • Keep Track of Blood Pressure

    The Color Doctor not only allows a person to easily check their blood pressure, but it keeps track of 90 of their previous blood pressure readings.

  • Use in the Dark

    Due to the color-coded display, the user can see if their blood pressure is high even in the dark or in low light conditions. People with poor vision or the inability to understand blood pressure readings will also be able to easily use this device.

How it's Different from Competitors

The Color Doctor differs from competitors by being easy to use and easy to understand.

No other blood pressure monitor displays a blood pressure reading by color code the way the Color Doctor does. The entire display will be either green, yellow or red after the blood pressure test - allowing the user to see if they need medical attention without having to actually read the blood pressure reading.

Save Time

With the Color Doctor, there are no tricky arm straps or bulbs to use. This saves the user time by being able to use the monitor easily and efficiently. Simply put it on the user's wrist, or the user can put it on his or her own wrist, use the Velcro strap to attach and let it work. Within a minute the user will have their blood pressure and pulse, and know whether their pressure is high or if their heartbeat is irregular.

Save Money

Any person with concerns about blood pressure can use the Color Doctor easily - at home, at work or on the go. This can save a person significant amounts of money on costly doctor's visits and more bulky devices. Since the device is easy to read, even for people with vision problems or in the dark, it may reduce the number of false alarms or unnecessary doctor visits.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Place on Wrist

    A person can place this on their wrist themselves, or they can have someone do it for them. Place it so the display is on the inside of the wrist. Once it is on the wrist, use the Velcro strap to secure the monitor on the wrist.

  2. Press Start

    Once the monitor is securely on the user's wrist, press the blue "Start" button underneath the display.

  3. Wait One Minute

    Within a minute of pressing the blue "Start" button, the monitor will have taken the user's blood pressure and pulse.

  4. Look at Screen

    Once the user's blood pressure is taken, the screen will either stay green, turn yellow or turn red.

    If the screen is still green, the user knows his or her blood pressure is normal.

    Should the screen be yellow, the user knows his or her blood pressure is elevated and should seek medical care if directed by a doctor.

    A red screen indicates high blood pressure, and the user is encouraged to seek immediate medical care unless otherwise directed by a doctor.

    The screen will also show the users heart rate and if the user has an irregular heartbeat. A user should take note of these readings and may want to contact their doctor depending on the readings.

Negative Aspects

  • Credibility

    Although, this product claims to be clinically tested, many people may be deterred from buying a product that is sold on TV to help them with a medical condition. Some may not believe the credibility of something that is being sold to them through an advertisement when they already have a doctor to give them reliable advice.

Concerns

  • Not a Doctor

    As there are many negative reviews about this product's accuracy, it is somewhat concerning that people might end up using a product that gives them bad readings. In some cases, a bad reading could cause someone to panic and think that something is wrong when, in reality, everything is OK with them. It could also go the other way, and not be able to notify you that something is wrong when your life could potentially be in danger.

  • Batteries

    This product relies on AAA batteries in order for it to work properly. The concern is that when the batteries start to get low on charge, the Color Doctor may not function properly. If let's say, a person were to have a severe condition, it may not be wise to rely on this type of device. Always ensure that your batteries have a full charge to get a proper reading.

Complaints

  1. Defects

    One customer review claims that upon receiving the Color Doctor, it would not even turn on properly. They tried two different sets of batteries to no avail.

  2. Inaccurate

    One customer complained that they brought the Color Doctor with them to a doctor appointment and checked it against the doctor's examination. A customer found that the Color Doctor was very inaccurate compared to what their doctor said. There was at least one other customer who mentioned that the product did not match what their doctor's arm cuff said.

  3. Inconsistent

    There were a few complaints that this product's readings are always inconsistent and they did not wish to rely on a product that was not accurate.

  4. Waste of Money

    A couple customers mentioned how they were very disappointed with the Color Doctor and that it did not work at all as was promised by the product's advertisement.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Warranty

    This product is back by a comprehensive 3-year warranty. That means if your Color Doctor ever gets broken or starts to malfunction, or you are simply not happy with it, you will be able to return for a replacement or your money back.

  2. Special Offer

    This product is available as a special offer. You may choose either the standard or upgraded platinum Color Doctor for a small extra fee and shipping and handling. You may also choose to purchase this product as a double offer and for a small fee, you will get a second unit. Double offer is available on both the standard and platinum monitors.

Faq

  • How Soon Will Get a Reading?

    This product is meant to work quickly and should display an accurate and clear reading within.

  • Is it for Continuous Use?

    Color Doctor is not intended for continuous use. It is only designed to log your blood pressure at certain times throughout the day.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Color Doctor online before searching Amazon.
- Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.

Not a Good Choice

My doctor asked me to monitor my blood pressure at home so I ordered the Color Doctor. I was surprised because the readings were always very good and lower than my blood pressure had normally been. When I went for my doctor appt I gave him a copy of the readings I had documented and he was pleasantly surprised when he saw the readings. He then asked what king of monitor I had. When I told him he expressed to me that the Color Doctor and any monitors that take BP from the wrist are not considered to be as accurate as the BP arm cuff. He then proceeded to take my BP ( three different times ) and the readings in his office were considerably higher than the readings I had just shown him. In my opinion--do not purchase the Color Doctor or any wrist monitors.

Does it only store the 90 readings then you have to buy a new one or can you reset it and use it again?
