Enjoying Retirement in Good Health, Going For Zero
Walt and I have been vacationing quite often this winter. We visited the Miami area, went on a cruise, visited relatives in Florida and hope to head to Panama City, Panama soon. While a great deal of fun, visiting all these locations requires extensive walking and long days.
The biggest and most unique “folly” at Vizcaya is a piece of fantasy concrete architecture sitting in the water in front of the mansion called “The Barge”.
Walt and I know how important it is monitor our health through regular physicals, but there are many things we can do at home to stay on top of our health as well. One thing we have done recently is to take Omron’s Going For Zero Pledge.
I will work with Omron on their goal to change the public mindset from “checking” blood pressure to “monitoring”. Omron Healthcare, Inc. is the global category leader in personal heart health and wellness technology, with a heritage of over 40 years. Omron is the #1 doctor and pharmacist recommended home blood pressure monitor brand on the market, and the brand is known for its clinically-validated accuracy.
As you can see from the pledge above, it’s all the things that any healthy adult should be doing, especially retired adults like Walt and me. We already exercise, eat smart, drink in moderation, relax but the one thing we don’t do regularly is monitor our blood pressure.
Omron Healthcare’s company mission is Going for Zero™, the elimination of heart attacks and
strokes. The company has pursued its bold mission by developing new heart health technologies, working in collaboration with physicians, launching a national education campaign, and forming partnerships with groups like the American Heart Association to achieve breakthroughs.
As part of our Going for Zero Pledge, over the next 90 days, Walt and I will be taking and monitoring our blood pressure with the Omron Evolv Wireless Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor. I will be bringing the results of our readings and talking to you more about the importance of regular blood pressure monitoring at home and how that can help lead to the elimination of heart attacks and strokes. Watch for three more blog posts that can help you and your family work to eliminate your cardiac events.

I learned that heart disease is a silent killer and it is important to track your blood pressure.
I learned that their Project Zero 2.0 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor lasts one week when charged.
I didn’t really learn anything at that site but from your review, I learned the Omron blood pressure monitor has Bluetooth technology, allowing one to store, share, & track blood pressure over time.
I learned that the device lasts one week on a charge
Trisha McKee says
i learned that it is not enough to simply check blood pressure randomly, but to monitor it. It is important to know if your blood pressure is in a danger zone.
I learned that we shouldn’t just our blood pressure but monitor it as our blood pressure changes throughout the day and monitoring it can help keep control of it.
Sue W. says
I learned this unit only has the cuff part for the arm, no wires to get in the way. I like that feature, it would be easier to use.
I learned that it is not enough to just know your blood pressure numbers. You also need to act on them.
Jerry Marquardt says
I learned that it is not just the numbers. I see this being a tool, and not replacing regular doctor visits.
Sarah Cool says
I learned that Project Zero 2.0 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor is changing the game of heart health
Buddy Garrett says
It measures blood pressure with clinical accuracy at the press of a button. It sounds great.
Sarah Mayer says
I learned this about the Alvita fitness tracker
Our most advanced fitness tracker yet, the Omron Alvita® Wireless Activity Tracker is petite yet powerful.
Went to the page but didn’t really learn anything I did not already know–for a couple of reasons. I am a retired RN and have been a well controlled hypertensive for several years. This is very good information for someone with no background though, and needs to be emphasized , especially to younger people who often have no idea that it is even possible for them to be hypertensive.
Lisa Romine says
Learned this: It’s not enough to know your blood pressure numbers – it’s time to act on them. :: It’s very important to be aware.
Kayla Klontz says
I learned they read a lot more than just blood pressure. we could use this at home, my boyfriend’s blood pressure is getting bad, we’d love to be able o monitor it.
Jennifer H says
I learned that high blood pressure starts in the 130s. I really thought that was pre-high, not high. Wow.
Jeanie Hicken says
I learned that my blood pressure is almost always normal but my family members is considered elevated.
Heart disease is a silent killer
wen budro says
I learned that one of the goals is to change the public mindset. Why? Because it’s important to view blood pressure as something to be monitored……not something to be taken only at doctor visits.
Brandon Sparks says
I learned that this monitors a lot more then just blood pressure.
