On the graph, a set of two dots and their connecting line represents an average measurement of your blood pressure over the specific time period shown on the bottom axis. The top dot is the Systolic (SYS) value, and the bottom dot is the Diastolic (DIA) value.

Aktiia follows the guidelines specified by the European Society of Hypertension (ESH)(2018) for all EU countries and the American Heart Association (AHA) (2017) for the US. According to these guidelines, each measurement pair (SYS and DIA) should have one single colour.

The highest classification level of either the SYS or the DIA values determines the colour.

For example, if your SYS measurement is over 145 mmHg and your DIA is under 80 mmHg, the classification colour of the reading will be Orange in the EU. A SYS value above 140 mmHg is classified as High Blood Pressure Stage 1 and represented with the colour Orange, as specified by the blood pressure guidelines from the European Society of Hypertension (ESH), released in 2018.
