Blood Pressure Cuff Manual (iOS)

Some versions of the Noom app allow you to measure and record blood pressure readings using a blood pressure cuff. Your blood pressure cuff should’ve come with instructions on how to pair it with the app, but if you didn’t receive these instructions, you can follow the steps below. 

  1. Download Noom
    If you haven’t done so already, download the Noom app from the App Store.
  2. Unfold the cuff into a loop
    When you take the monitor out of the box it will be folded in half. Open the monitor by unfolding the Velcro to create one big loop.
    Note: Your blood pressure cuff must be charged for at least an hour out of the box.

  3. Put the cuff on your arm
    Make sure you put your hand through the loop with the blue arrow pointing toward your hand and the red arrow pointing toward your shoulder.
  4. Tighten the cuff
    Tighten the monitor by pulling on the strap until it’s tight. When you close it with the Velcro, make sure you can still fit two fingertips between the strap and your arm under the red arrow.
    Note: The measurement can’t be done on a sleeve, so make sure the monitor is directly on your skin.
