I found that it is quite accurate, but only when used properly. As the manual indicates, the key is that the wrist must be held above the heart, and if not the blood pressure reading will drop by approximately 20 mmHg (or points). When the wrist was above the heart, it was quite accurate.
I've used many wrist cuffs over the years and the one thing I've always disliked about any automated cuff (even for the upper arm) is the over inflation, which is often painful and quite annoying. This one is very comfortable and does not over inflate itself.
The readout screen is very large and easy to see, and it is fairly simple to use. The one downfall that I found is that there is no way to turn off the power, or if there is, I've not figured out how and the manual offers no clear instruction on this. That said, it does shut itself off and there is a little badly worded blurb in the manual which perhaps indicates that it shuts off after one minute, and after using it this sounds about right. I don't particularly care for that feature, as this is an additional minute on battery time which I would prefer to save.
All in all this is a good blood pressure cuff and is lightweight, easy to use, accurate as well as inexpensive. That makes for a good buy in my opinion.
Turns out, the top of the small carrying case the monitor comes in is nicely curved and angled to fit your forearm, and when I set it up like in the picture, the readings became consistant, and the readings came quite close to my other, larger electronic monitor with arm-cuff and bulb (which I have had checked out at my doctor's office, and is very accurate).
So it seems that this unit likes to be used only one way, and if you do that, it appears to work quite well. Now I like it, and am going to keep it. It is interesting how sensitive it is to position compared to my other monitor, however.
After receiving the WrisTech and using it for a couple of months, each and every check has been fairly close to what I have been receiving at the doctor using the regular arm cuff.
I've read the other reviews and I'm not sure why they were having difficulties, but this has been an excellent little machine for me and my family. I check my results both day and night and they have been consistent as compared to the doctor's office every two weeks. I think there has been from 1-5 points off. I think that's terriffic for such an inexpensive piece of equipment. Like anything you buy that has been made, perhaps there were a couple of flawed units out there. WrisTech Blood Pressure Monitor

Use it daily, and find it to be accurate.
I have bought this from a different place (HF) for about the same price. I am an EMT and have tested this unit side by side for 14 days with a certified unit in the clinic. Read morePublished 10 months ago by azbrodie
