Don't know if this is even helpful for anyone, but I was told by my mothers doc that wrist monitors are unreliable for checking blood pressure. He told me to get one with an arm cuff on it, much more reliable. I also bought one with a digital readout but I can inflate it myself with a tube, seems to be more reliable than the self inflating models.
The wrist one gave ME odd readings. I've never, ever had b/p go over 112/70 and this machine told me twice in one hour that my b/p was 160/85.. wowzer. Went into my docs freaking out, they took it three times in thirty mins.. and it was my norm each time. The docs and nurses both told me the wrist one wasn't accurate (obviously), while they kindof snickered which I thought was RUDE.
Just a thought
