Worst app I have ever seen
JohnnyLLong on 1/21/2018
Bluetooth transmit of blood glucose reading does not work. Called Walgreens support and after talking with numerous reps they finally admitted they did not know how it works. Big zero stars!
Blue Tooth Capability is Awful
jebow12 on 1/20/2018
Don’t buy the 930BT blood pressure monitor. It does not sync with the Walgreens Connect App to my Balance Rewards. There is no “connect” button when trying to add a device.
Not good
Jimmy the Catholic on 1/11/2018
Finally got it to sync but won’t log readings.... that’s the whole point of “tracking.” Cmon Walgreens, your app makes it easy to buy things .... make it do what it says it will do. Typical company more interested in making a dollar than doing a good job.
Does not sync to device
meanbeard on 12/28/2017
I bought this blood pressure monitor that contains instructions for syncing to this app. However, this app says my device is not supported, despite the fact that the app uses a picture of this device as the example photo. Pretty much what I expected from Walgreens, but disappointing nonetheless.
Terrible App
Malachi W on 12/16/2017
App does not sync with BP cuff, does not save password, and requires two step authentication to sign in and again if any changes within the app are made. Clunky, overly complicated user interface, and does not write to Apple Health app, which is supposed to serve as a central repository of health information. Pay a few dollars more for an Omron BP cuff and actually get the smart functionality that is advertised for this app that doesn’t really exist. I ended up returning two Walgreens blood pressure machines and getting an Omron instead because the app wouldn’t work.
Improved
frederick9 on 12/16/2017
Easily synced; seems to work fine.
Lazy design
ReconMarine1969 on 12/12/2017
All in all the app was designed quickly and lazily. It is not optimized for ease and simplicity. That’s on a good day. On a bad day the app stays on the opening screen with a circle spinning round and round saying “signing in.” After about 15 minutes of this, including completely closing out and reopening the app several times- I just gave up. Pretty much what I’ve come to expect from this company.

Ladygee12 on 11/9/2017
App is OK, but history does not record the time and date blood pressure was taken. I wish this data was viewable at all times. You only see date; time BP results after initial sync with monitor. Please update app to show day and time in history as well as BP results.
Can’t believe they sell this stuff!
wiliap on 10/18/2017
Just like many people on here, I could not pair my BP wrist cuff with the terrible app. Got the same message “not supported”. Waste of time will return it tomorrow.
Failure App
NoNicknamesLeft6479536 on 10/15/2017
Actually, giving it one star is being generous. They obviously did not hire IT people who knew how to write apps. After reading the reviews I decided to not waste half the night trying to sync this nor will I be calling their support as others reviewed that their support didn't know anything about it either. Found a review that said they were able to sync their blood glucose monitor through the manufacturer's app. Best review advice I found. I searched the manufacturer in the app store, found the app for my device and within SECONDS my phone was connected to my device. Will be deleting the Walgreens Connect app as it is garbage..... not sure review will post as I have tried MULTIPLE times to post but tells me EVERY TIME the nickname is taken.....
Not good
Cmoney4 on 10/11/2017
Bought for the Bluetooth functionality. Tried to pair it with the app and app said that the device is not supported even though I had to select my model when setting up the account and it had a pic of my device on the screen. Will be returning it tomorrow.
Doesn’t work
troysteris on 10/6/2017
Will not open on my Samsung S8. Type in my username and password and it just closes.
Very disappointed
DMedlam on 9/26/2017
Now, let me preface everything I’m about to say with this: 1) I’m extremely technologically proficient, my background is mostly hardware, my degree is information systems 2) I’ve used other Walgreens apps before and have for years to manage my prescriptions. Love them. This app is behaving like a hunk of junk. I don’t know if it’s because of the new iOS 11 update and maybe things haven’t caught up or what. I bought a new glucose monitor today and I specifically got the one with Bluetooth because I like compiling all my various data from my various devices so I can take it all to my doctor so he can see my history and progress. Even though THIS APP is the app that the instructions said to get— it does not work with my monitor. The app refuses to pair with my device. My phone settings say that it’s paired and connected. App still says “device not supported.” ITS THE ONLY DEVICE! Its not like there was a range of options of meters with Bluetooth that were Walgreens branded and I made an oopsie and got the wrong one. No! I got the only one! Lest we forget the directions specifically said THIS APP. So I ended up doing some digging and decided to forget Walgreens. It did not take long to browse the actual manufacturers website and low and behold they, too, have an app. So I decided to give it a whirl. You know what happened? It synced the information and test results off the device and onto my phone before I even knew what really happened. It was fantastic! Developers: please get your stuff together and sort this out.
To much security
seaotters on 9/25/2017
I had deleted the app and wanted to go back in. It took almost 10 minutes of being asked different times for me to prove I'm not a robot. Deleted the app and found one that wasn't so locked up. I appreciate the security but good grief it's just my blood pressure. The app shouldn't raise my blood pressure!!
Arm bp monitor
Mr Caro on 8/16/2017
Love this app
Awful, awful, awful
Red Grange on 6/30/2017
Worst experience ever trying to first sync a glucose meter (and 2 calls to Walgreens help line was useless- they were clueless as to how to sync a device and admitted they did not know what to do- some help line). Eventually I did a search online and found sync directions. So now The device is synced to the iPhone, but there is no data- no dashboard- nothing but a freakin advertising page! This is a total failure and a gimmick! Don't fall for it- it is just a way for Walgreens to try and sell more things to you and no actual data or true meter sync exists. What a crock! Walgreens, we expected better. If this was truly a serious app that really collected data, it might be worthwhile, but it is obvious that whom ever is in charge of this app and sync farce does not know a thing about really health-tech integration. Awful.
Devices are NOT compatible with Apple Health App
KBKowBoy on 6/27/2017
I strongly regret purchasing a Walgreens Blood Pressure Monitor. The device is only compatible with the Walgreens Connect App and does not allow my Apple Health App to sync the data. Also, the Walgreens App does not store the time of day for readings. Very Disappointing.
Pairing fixed
VkNaija on 6/23/2017
Pairing works perfectly now so they get 5 stars
POS
Doc Ozone on 6/16/2017
POS, device not supported is the message I get when trying connect with new blood pressure monitor 930BT on iPhone 6 with the latest IOS. Called support number and received zip for help. They going to escalate to IT.
Still new
Rev280 on 6/13/2017
Only been using the cuff for a couple of weeks. Was close to bp in dr's office. Wish there was a way to get a print out of the readings. If there is a way I haven't found it yet. Very comfortable in taking the bp.
Not bad
tuppergranny on 6/11/2017
Only used twice, so far so good.
Great BP Tracker
Denisagale on 5/29/2017
I use the app with my Walgreens wrist blood pressure monitor. It makes it so easy to get Reward points and to keep an eye on my BP. The app is a little "glitchy" but it does what it's designed to do most of the time.
Love the app
Nan222 on 5/8/2017
Easy to use and very handy having it tracked and stored my phone. Love the ease of being able to provide the information to my doctor.
Get data
Tshortkc on 5/6/2017
I want to be able to get the data from the unit for my own charting app. This is not good.

Cheffie59 on 5/6/2017
Excellent keeps me in line well made and very user friendly
Really want to give 5 stars but needs fixes
hiccupd on 5/5/2017
I love Walgreens & the idea of this app, but it doesn't work correctly. First, even though there is a password save feature it doesn't actually save your password. Plus it doesn't ask for the login info on first access, it takes you to a temporary "no linked devices" landing page & kicks you back to login. Then, even though your device is linked to the app via Bluetooth & uploads most recent BP reading, you have to manually enter the BP in another area of the app to save it. Next, even though it offers to show you last 7 days of readings so you can chart them, it really only gives you 2. Good idea... needs work.
Nice
Draybs on 5/3/2017
Like I can chart right to my phone. Also really like the other health apps offered that I can earn even more bonus points.
Hit or Miss with IOS
Dalite02 on 4/26/2017
Easily pairs with iPhone 6S+ running current IOS, but does not reliably transmit data. Usually 5 to 10 minutes of repeated attempts may result in a successful transfer. Hardware is fine; app - not so much...
Meh
MNLineman on 4/12/2017
This app is clunky and does not sync with Apple Health. There is potential for so much more.
BP app
Super 250 Duty on 4/9/2017
Great technology for tracking your BP. Some connectivity issues, but overall, great!!
M. L. Allen
Marcia-A on 2/5/2017
I like this app. It took a little time to get my blood pressure monitor and the app synced. But now they are and there's no problem. I like the fact that I can take my iPad to the doctor and she can see what my blood pressure has been doing. A great tool!
Micci
Kevin R Lehmann on 2/3/2017
I just purchased this device it's 100 times better than other devices I've used A little cumbersome to learn not bad but cumbersome Will use this 3 to 4 times daily a better review will be in 30-45 days Thanks Micci
Great for tracking but...
Spc80 on 1/24/2017
Please add in the ability to share the information with Health Kit. It would make this app so much better.
Missing One Feature
SuperH! on 1/21/2017
This application does a great job tracking your blood pressure, but for the iPhone there is an obvious miss: no ability to feed the blood pressure data into the Apple Health application. I use Health for other aspects of my fitness, and was disappointed to see that the Walgreens Connect application is not one which I can select as a blood pressure data source. If this can be resolved, this application would be remarkable. Considerable updates were made recently, which make this monumentally more useful than in times past.
Sync issues
Fail Greens on 1/13/2017
I should've stayed away from this app when I saw the 1 star rating!!!! It's not worth the frustration!!! Walgreens needs to either hire a COMPETENT TECHNOLOGY COMPANY or get out of this business, especially with respect to RF technology!! You guys haven't a clue what you're doing in this field as Bluetooth is OLD SCHOOL & you couldn't synchronize a handshake between 2 persons, much less your health monitors!!! For the record...960BT doesn't sync or connect reliably with this App!!
Does not sync UPDATE: sync instructions
Weirdo4321 on 1/9/2017
I have the 960BT. It says connected but nothing EVER syncs??? UPDATE: Found where my Blood Pressures are syncing to. Go to your Walgreens App (the big red W). Choose Prescriptions & Health. Scroll down to Balance Rewards for healthy choices. Your most recent blood Pressure shows on that page. Tap on down arrow to see all synced blood pressures. Walgreens needs to explain better.
Does not work
DissatisfiedBpUser on 1/1/2017
Appears to connect and sync but doesn't show any information. 760BT Premium
Connects but does not sync
lorenzol on 12/30/2016
Connects but has to be done every time the monitor or iPhone goes off.... so you have to be quick.... doesn't matter cause it don't sync..... losing balance rewards points .... hmmm wonder if Walgreen's knows there is a deceptive trade practices law in Texas.... based on no comments or comments from them on the app.... i guess they don't know....
Does not pair.
Cdmoon93 on 12/26/2016
I've been trying for an hour to pair the blood glucose monitor and it won't pair. This is awful.
What does it do?
Abbikins on 12/20/2016
I have the blood glucose monitor. It connected, and it synced. It doesn't give me any information. Why Walgreens, why???
App doesn't work or sync any data
El Buzo on 11/24/2016
After taking measurements and connect the monitor with the app no data is displayed or transmit to the app
Are you serious?!!
MrSoupDad on 11/20/2016
This app does nothing that I can tell! I spent extra to get the Bluetooth technology for nothing. Thanks Walgreens!
Scam on Blood pressure monitors w Bluetooth
Mmmmmddfff on 10/12/2016
Does not work. Wgnbpa-755BT. With iPhone. Should have read before buying. Will never buy from Walgreens again
Seriously, doesn't connect to the 760BT monitor
lopeze73 on 9/19/2016
Everyone is correct, you're not crazy. It really doesn't work at all with the 760BT blood pressure monitor. I'm running the version of the app that came out when ios10 came out. Everything I have is current and up to date. Device says "device not supported" when you try to pair it with your phone/app.
App will not recognize premium wrist BP monitor
Why I like this game on 9/18/2016
The BP unit I bought, the 760BT premium wrist cuff, is the first one shown on the app. Followed directions. App says "unit not supported.
Horrible...doesn't work AT ALL.
smullis1 on 9/4/2016
Don't bother. Read the other reviews. Connects for a second them disconnects without syncing any results. Pointless. I didn't read a single review where it worked for anyone. TOTAL FAIL!
Doesn't show B/P readings!
MotleyDrummer1 on 8/3/2016
App doesn't seem to work! Located device but only connects to phone for a second after taking B/P. I thought it connected to transfer my readings so I could keep track, but no! It seems it doesn't show or store you your readings on the app, but it appears they keep your info/health for their uses! I could care less about the rewards, I'm not taking my B/P because I want to track my rewards for using it! Waste of time...shocked Walgreens is not correcting this! Their regular store app is great, this however is just useless!
Fail
Charmy_stl on 7/26/2016
1) doesn't support the Walgreens cuff (even though I selected the one in the picture) 2) logs me out every time. 3) now I have to return the cuff, because only reason I paid extra was because of the useless Bluetooth.
Confirmed. Broken
Shelley2mars on 7/22/2016
Don't waste time. Requires you to generate account but won't transmit your BP which is it only purpose.
Did anybody from Walgreens leaders actually tried this app?
EtienneAs on 7/9/2016
Why do big companies always hire incompetent programmers do to their apps? This app is worthless, constant crashes, constantly logging you out, not syncing,...
