My GP says to get an arm BP monitor as it's more accurate. I wouldn't know the difference just quoting what he said.
Upper arm BP machines are more accurate, wrist BP's are fairly new but more convenient so there are pro's and con's. I'd stick with an upper arm cuff but that's personal choice. great price though, heat added! Also the bluetooth is great if you's for personal use.

You're GP is not exactly right, it's that they are not as accurate if used incorrectly. They need to be aligned properly on wrist and then the arm bent so the monitor is level with the heart. The reason your GP may think they're not as accurate is probably down to the modern problem of users not RTFM!

In fact, they can be more accurate for solo use as many find putting the cuff on properly difficult one handed. I've got an Omron cuff monitor and a £10 Lidl one and they both read identically and have been compared by my GP against the surgeries equipment.

Good to know thanks
I always use Omron for BP monitors, however, wrist monitors are never that accurate as the position in relation to heart is essential. Have you ever had your BP taken at GP or hospital using one? I always use upper arm never had problem with fit.

Great deal for this monitor so I've heated.

The problem with wrist measurement is accurate positioning of the device in relation to the heart. Several large studies have been conducted comparing the accuracy of upper arm vs wrist measurement in a home vs clinic setting. Casiglia et al., 2016 for instance, who assessed over 700 subjects, found a measurement error of at least +/-10mmHg in 455 subjects in a home setting - that's more than half the subjects in the study with significant deviations in reported BP. Errors in the home setting correlated with inaccurate positioning of the wrist; this was after all subjects had received training in relation to the use of their devices.

However, in a clinic setting, the Omron RS3 along with the RS6 and RS8, met the validation requirements of the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (+/-3mm Hg in comparison with a standard mercury sphygmomanometer). If done right, this wrist monitor will be very accurate.

General GP advice re: wrist monitors is correct - if not performed with very careful attention to the position of the wrist in relation to the heart, the reading will not be accurate. If you are confident you can do the assessment accurately, then by all means go get this monitor, if not get an upper arm one.

Your GP is right in that wrist measurements are exquisitely sensitive to the positioning of the monitor/ wrist in relation to the heart. Please see my detailed comment elsewhere.
For £47 I went for the OMRON RS7 Intelli IT Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor. Also on Amazon
