    • Fill out the welcome form with your birthdate, height, weight, and city/state/zipcode. This data is stored securely and is used to calibrate your device readings.

  4. Sign into the app with the account you just created.

  5. Connect your device

    • With the app open, press the "Start/Stop" button for 3 seconds. After 3 seconds a bluetooth indicator light should start flashing on the surface of the device. This means your iHealth device is discoverable via Bluetooth
    • Go to the Bluetooth settings page on your phone. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
    • Under the Devices list, you should see one named "BP5-XXXXXX". Tap it to connect to the device. The Bluetooth indicator on the iHealth device should stop flashing.
    • Your phone will now "remember" this device and auto-connect to it whenever you open the iHealth MyVitals app.
  6. Take your first measurement

    • Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Make sure you haven't done any physical exertion in the last 20 minutes.
    • Slide the blood pressure cuff onto your upper arm. The bottom of the cuff should be 1 inch from the crook of your elbow.
    • Tighten the cuff with the Velcro. It shouldn't be too tight; make sure you can still slip two fingers between the cuff and your arm.
    • Open the iHealth MyVitals app. Click the menu icon and tap "Blood Pressure". Once your phone auto-connects to your iHealth device, a large "Start" button should appear.
    • Tap Start. The device will automatically pump up the cuff and take a measurement. The results will be displayed on your phone.
