    Just got confirmation from Withings support that the "measurement range" for the BPM Connect is 40 - 180 bpm. Those with resting heart rates below 40 are out of luck.

    I have the same problem. My resting heart rate is around 33, so I have to walk around to get a reading, which would give the wrong result. Which they could fix this with a firmware upgrade...

    I also contacted the Withings support to clarify this as we keep on receiving an error while taking a measurement. They also informed us about the measurement range for the BPM Connect.

    Omron devices are also limited to 40. I got the following response from their support:

    "Unfortunately 40 is the limit of what the device can read, this goes for all of our Blood pressure monitors, this cannot be changed or adjusted."

    even though my old M500 can go below 40. Newer devices (such as my new X7) display E5 Error which in manual says clothing interference so it took me a while to figure out that it was actually due to low pulse.

    This limitation was the reason why I wanted to try BPM Connect until I found this topic. It might be that the companies are not allowed to offer 'override' switch that would allow the ranges beyond what the companies got a certification for.
