Need to get another monitor

I have a blood pressure monitor and cuff. The cuff is extremely hard to tighten since it winds around my arm in the opposite direction away from my body. I get "error" messages even when someone else tries to help me get the cuff on correctly or else when it does work I get a wide variety of readings at one sitting. I am considering a wrist monitor and was wondering if anyone out there has one and if so what type. Does it appear to be pretty accurate? I see where Bayer makes one now.

Re: Need to get another monitor

I have both a wrist and an arm monitor and I have found the wrist monitor to be inaccurate. Most of the people on this board do not recommend the wrist monitor.
