Iphone BP cuff

There is a BP cuff that plugs into your Iphone and will trend your readings. Has anyone used one of these and was it accurate?

I don't know if any have been some to be any more accurate than others.

But this Heart Study associated with UCSF will work with either iHealth or Withings iPhone BP systems.

Both have a 3 mmHg accuracy.
