:-)  hi, i heard that too, about the wrist monitor so i bought a didtal one also,i think it does a good job, even if it isn't 100% accurate it is close enough.  my #'s have been a little high lately so i am keeping a close eye on it. thanks for you input!

I also have a digital BP monitor that has the bulb that I inflate and it goes around my upper arm.  My mom's a cardiac nurse and said right off that the wrist ones werent accurate and they also have finger cuffs too that dont work well.  However, there is a new company that is making digital wrist cuffs for hospitals and doctor offices only and they are exactly on target.  I dont remember the name of them though, I read an article in Time Mag on it.

mine is a wrist monitor and seems to be pretty on-key with what my doctor said. I'm really not too obsessive or worried about my blood pressure to really invest more than $100 in a blood pressure monitor especially since there is a firehouse down the block from me where my friend works that does it for nothing "the real way"

I paid 65.00 for my BP monitor at my pharmacy.  Granted there are quite a few that are expensive out there.  If your wrist cuff is recording accurately then it is most likely calibrated correctly, which is a big problem with BP machines.  I wouldnt worry about changing it in that case.  Take care....
