Your initial blood pressure target is set to 130/80 based on recommendations from the American Heart Association for people with hypertension. To find out the target that is ideal for you, speak with your doctor.
Since blood pressure readings fluctuate, One Drop calculates an average of your blood pressure readings over the last seven days when calculating progress toward your goal.
Your goals screen will show your latest seven-day systolic and diastolic blood pressure averages and the change in those numbers since you started using One Drop. One Drop calculates the change in your blood pressure by comparing your most recent seven days with your first seven days of readings. Because of this, it can take eight days to see a change in systolic and diastolic blood pressure averages on your goal screen. When your seven-day systolic blood pressure and your seven-day diastolic blood pressure averages are both below your target, the app will show that you have achieved your goal.
You will also find a bright blue progress indicator in the center of the blood pressure goal screen. As you work toward your blood pressure goal, you will see the blue bar grow clockwise. The progress bar will form a full blue ring when you reach your goal.
Speak with your doctor about adjusting your goal or reach out to your One Drop coach for support in identifying if it’s time to change it.
