You can try BOTH wrists, not that this should make a HUGE difference, usually it is the actual pressure itself. I would try to use to machine on someone else and make sure that your actual pressure(meaning the amount of blood, rate of flow) can be monitored with a wrist model. Some people are forced to use a arm style..... take care... Guy

The cuff appears to be working, but always returns E3.

E3 error code is an Error Determining Measurement Data. This can be caused by movement of the wrist, hand or arm during the measuring function. In which case, sit very still with your wrist at heart level, until the measuring cycle has completed.

If this continues to happen, contact HoMedics (the manufacturer) Customer Support Dept at 800-466-3342.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Gives wrong pressure readings. also shows only error on pulse. can be repaired or buy new one. if fixable where to send to

You didn't mention how long you've had this wrist monitor, but it may be a case of it not being used properly. For it to work best, you need to keep your arm/wrist still at heart level. Place the cuff on your wrist, at least 1" above the heel of your hand. Be sure the strap is fitted snugly ground the wrist before starting the unit. Then remain still. Don't flex or shake your wrist during the testing procedure. You may also need to change the batteries.

If none of the above solves the problem, most BP wrist monitors have a 5 year limited warranty (check your Owners Manual for yours) and will allow you to return to them for repair or re-calibration. But you must have their approval before sending it, as well as your Proof of Purchase.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

Always shows to high pressure pulse to low

Be sure that you are applying the wrist monitor properly. It should be placed on the wrist at least 1/2" from the up the wrist from the heel of the hand. Tighten it snugly and inflate. Remain very still, until the process has been completed. Also, keeping your wrist at heart level, will provide a more accurate reading. If you doubt the reading you get, switch to the other arm/wrist and take it again. If you get the same thing, it's probably accurate..

I have a cuff like this and get an error saying EE

According to the Owners Manual, the EE Message shown on the display or the blood pressure value is displayed when an excessively low (or high) reading is detected OR as a result of one of the following:

1. Cuff has been placed incorrectly. Solution: Wrap cuff properly so that it's positioned correct.

2. Did you talk or move during measurement? Solution: Measure again. Keep wrist steady at heart level during measurement.

3. Shaking or moving of the wrist with the cuff on. Solution: Same as # 2.

NOTE: Be sure the cuff is placed exactly as pictured on the face of the box, 1/2" above the heel of the hand.

Start working but it does give me result said error.

Make sure that your wrist is a heart level, that is the best way to get a wrist reading..... Also, check your batteries, SOME times it can cause the error, but most often it is the level of the wrist to your heart

It just keeps beeping and is not displaying anything but the little heart on top right

#1-check to make sure it doesn't need new batteries
#2-make sure that you are placing the cuff as directed.
#3-make sure that you are holding your wrist at heart level

The little heart and beeping only sounds to me like it is not picking up your pulse. Is the cuff tight enough before pushing the button?

Err 3 is displayed

Wrist blood pressure monitors must be used with the arm above heart level. You can do the pledge of allegiance while doing a reading to make sure this is done. Usually this error occurs when inflation takes too long or the placement of cuff is wrong.

Blood pressure measurements support

There are two positions for taking your blood pressure measurements: Sitting down - Place your elbow on a table. Using a flat object as support, position your wrist at heart level. Your blood pressure measurement will be too low if you hold your hand too high, or too high if you hold your hand too low. Lying down - Lie on your back. Rest your wrist on a support or cushion with the palm side facing up, position your wrist at heart level. On both of the positions you need to open and relax your hand with the palm facing up (closing your hand will cause inaccurate readings). Do not bend your wrist inward, as bending your wrist will cause inaccurate readings. If possible, empty your bladder before measuring your blood pressure, for a more accurate reading.
