Beurer wrist blood pressure monitor touch BC58. Was originally £43.99 now £25.99. This is a high end design with a black LCD touch screen.
I spotted this at Amazon £39.04 firstly whilst looking at other things, and thought I would check if Argos had it- I'm glad I did. 💖

This looks good.

I love checking my BP.
Good price. The accuracy can vary on wrist bpm.

Possibly due to calibration,but to be assured in between doctors appointments can ease the mind- thus lowering blood pressure 💖

Studies have been carried out regarding accuracy and it can vary by alot. If you need to check inbetween appointments, you are better off with a upper arm BPM

Agree ..long known issue but remember men using home daily monitoring can get troubled by rises of bp of course..!
Being a medic I can vouch for the fact that these do vary considerably.

The reason we use upper arm BP is because its at the level of the heart which is supposed to be more accurate

Having said that, BP is NOT a constant thing - it changes throughout the day according to activity, breathing, worries and even food you've eaten.

So, I wouldn't worry if you get a one off high reading. We can't diagnose High blood pressure by a few readings anyway - its recommended to have a 24 hour monitor and get the average
I wonder if it will replace my smart-watch? Guess I will need to get down the gym first

As above - not as reliable as a brachial (upper arm) monitor, due to often not being at the right level when taking a reading, but there are also two big arteries in the wrist, as opposed to one in the upper arm, which can lead to wide variations.
If you're concerned about your BP and want to monitor it, get a proper brachial one.
If you want to do it properly and for less than this (regularly on Amazon) get one of these:

Having taken my blood pressure for about 20 years now I would not waste your money on wrist monitors. You can get a Omron M2 basic upper arm monitor for less than this which are clinically validated.
My wife is a pediatrician and is always telling people not to buy wrist BPMs, upper arm is the only accurate way to record your blood pressure, they can be got for a lot cheaper than this too.
Concur with the opinions here, I've always been told to buy upper-arm BP machines. LIDL usually have excellent ones with a slightly larger cuff width of 36 CM rather than the Omron M2.
Not voted either way as I'd always look for British Heart Foundation validation on any BP monitor I buy. Someone has already pointed this out - the list of home use monitors meeting their validation criteria is here. Many available under £50, why would you go with something else.
Re: the wrist vs upper arm monitor debate, have a look here for come clinical evidence.

Agree with all above posters. Get a validated Omron for around the same price that will give you a more consistent result from the upper arm.
