Android Device Compatibility: SimpleEye Bluetooth Blood Pressure has been tested and verified with Android 2.0 (Motorola® Droid on Verizon®), 2.1 (LG® Ally on Verizon® and T-Mobile® myTouch 3G Slide running HTC® SenseUI) and 2.2 (Google® Nexus One on T-Mobile®). Some minor issues that should not prevent measurements from being taken have been observed with Android 2.1 devices running the HTC® Sense UI: the Bluetooth implementations on these devices have unresolved errors.
If this is the first time the application is started, the help screen will show as in Figure 2 below.
Tap thebutton to close the help screen: you can tap the button at any time to access this screen.
The application will then check to see if Bluetooth is enabled. If not, it will request that Bluetooth be turned on, as shown in Figure 3 below. Bluetooth must be activated to use the Bluetooth features of the software.
Tapto approve the request: Bluetooth will turn on as shown in Figure 4 below.
Tap the Menu button to show the application menu as seen in Figure 5 below.
- Press and hold the Bluetooth button until the screen on the blood pressure monitor shows PCL. See the manual for the FORA D15b for more details.
Once the blood pressure monitor is ready, tap the Select button and then tap the Find entry as shown in Figure 6 below.
This will open the the Android Bluetooth settings screen as shown in Figure 7 below. A scan will be performed (or press Scan for devices to start a scan): the phone should now find the blood pressure monitor. The caption on the item will show Pair with this device to indicate that the blood pressure monitor is not paired.
Tap the blood pressure monitor item to start the pairing process: a pairing key dialog will be shown as in Figure 8 below. Enter the proper pairing code (for the supported FORA D15b blood pressure monitor that code is 111111).
Tap: the pairing process will complete and the blood pressure monitor item will change its caption to “Paired but not connected” to indicate that the pairing process is complete: this is shown in Figure 9 below.
You are now ready to go!
Tap Yes to accept it: you will then be prompted to set this blood pressure monitor as your default blood pressure monitor as shown in Figure 11 below. Tap to do so.
The application will enable the Connect button and ask if you wish to connect to the blood pressure monitor right now as shown in Figure 12 below.
You can either tap Yes or tap Connect to connect: the connection will start up as shown in Figure 13 below.
Once connected, the select button will be disabled and the Connect button will switch to Disconnect. To disconnect from the blood pressure monitor you can tap the button.
As soon as a measurement is available, the blood pressure monitor will transmit it and the blood pressure measurement details will be shown as seen in Figure 14 below.
If voice reports are enabled (they are enabled by default) the application will read out the most recent measurement values at this time.
Note: the D15b blood pressure monitor can save multiple measurements even when no Bluetooth connection is present: when a connection is then established using SimpleEye Bluetooth Blood Pressure all the measurements will be automatically transmitted to the Android device and saved (see Application settings and preferences for more options) for future review. Only the latest measurement will be displayed on this screen: to see older measurements tap History.
Tap the button to disconnect from the blood pressure monitor when the measurements have been captured. The connection will be automatically closed when the blood pressure monitor turns off.
As before, you will be prompted to choose whether or not this will be your default entry method. Once this is done the spinner will reflect your choice and the button will change as shown in Figure 16 below. Any visible values will be cleared.
Tap Record to open up the manual entry screen as shown in Figure 17 below.
Enter the blood pressure measurement details into the form: all 3 values are required and must be numbers. You can set the date of the measurement and also enter a short note with the measurement: example values are shown in Figure 18 below.
Tap Save to save the measurement. The measurement will be saved and the application will return to the measurement capture screen as shown in Figure 19 below.
The chart can scroll to show previous measurements as shown in Figure 21 below.
Tap on any point in the chart to see the measurement detail and the associated date as shown in Figure 22 below.
A long-press on the chart will open the chart options menu as shown in Figure 23 below: this allows the number of displayed measurements to be changed.
Figure 24 below shows the chart but with 1 week of measurements at a time.
When the orientation is changed to landscape the chart will enlarge to fill as much space as is available, as shown in Figure 25 below.
Tapto see a listing of all measurements as shown in Figure 26 below. The measurements are ordered with the most recent measurement at the top.
Tap on any entry in the listing to view the details of the measurement, including the note attached to the measurement (if any), the time it was saved and last modified and any other additional measurement details taken: you may need to scroll to see those details. This is shown in Figure 27 below. Tap thebutton when done.
A long press on any entry in the listing will open its menu, as shown in Figure 28 below.
Tap themenu item to change the note attached to the measurement: you can then enter and changes into the provided input field as shown in Figure 29 below.

The measurement will be permanently deleted.
You can also tap the button () at the bottom of the screen to open up the manual measurement recording screen as shown in Figure 17 above.
Tapping themenu item will open up the Android share menu, similar to what is shown in Figure 34 below.
Select the desired share option and it will be passed the measurement data, as shown in Figure 35 below.
To send all measurements by email tap thebutton () at the bottom of the screen. This will open up the Android share menu as shown in Figure 36 below.
Select the desired option, and it will open up with an attachment as shown in Figure 37 below. You can then enter the recipient(s) email address(es), edit the body of the email and send the file.
The attachment is a comma-separated values (CSV) file that can be opened up in Microsoft® Excel® or Google® Docs, and will include the time the measurement was taken by the blood pressure monitor (from the blood pressure monitor’s internal clock), the time the measurement was saved by the Android device, the actual blood pressure values, the note that was attached (if any), and information about the specific blood pressure monitor that took the measurement; this last bit of information is useful to be able to separate out measurements that may be saved from multiple blood pressure monitors to the same Android device.
Tap Export to export the data. A new export data file will be created in the top level of the SD card with all the data saved to it. The name of the file will be displayed as shown in Figure 39 below. The export data file will have the date and time saved into the name and will have a suffix of bloodpressuredata.csv, and this file can be copied off the SD card and stored elsewhere for safekeeping or transferred to another Android device.
To import an export data file, copy the file to the top level of the SD card and then select the Import option from the History chart view menu as shown in Figure 40 below.
The application will search the top level of the SD card for all files named with the same suffix bloodpressuredata.csv and will display a list of possible data files as shown in Figure 41 below.
Tap the desired file to select it and start the import process as shown in Figure 42 below.
Once the import is completed a confirmation will show with the number of measurements imported as shown in Figure 43 below. Tap OK to refresh the chart and show the newly imported data.
A menu will appear with the additional supported measurement types as shown in Figure 45 below. Tap the desired measurement: as shown below the Temperature option is selected.
