Question about Timex Health & Beauty

Open Question

My timex model 80224 blood pressure monitor is not very accurate. What can I do to get it adjusted to read correctly? It now reads 20 or 30 points lower than it should on the first number and it reads 9 or more points higher on the second number (diastolic).

Keep in mind, that improper placement of the wrist cuff can cause higher or lower readings, than what they truly are. Also, not keeping your arm at heart level can cause an inaccurate reading.

My wrist cuff monitor seems to be reading low. Is there a way to get it checked or calibrated?


The next time you go to your doctor, take the wrist cuff monitor with you. As they always do, the nurse or doctor will check you vital signs. After they do that and they've told you what your blood pressure and pulse readings are, correctly place the cuff monitor on your wrist and check you BP and Pulse with it. Compare the reading from the cuff monitor to what your doctor got. If it's within a few points, it's no big deal. If it's way off, than there's a problem with the cuff.

Remember, whenever using a cuff monitor, always keep your wrist at heart level for the most accurate reading. Once it's activated, remain completely still and don't move your wrist, until it has finished cycling.

I take 4 consecutive readings (within a minute) and get 4 widely varying readings. How do I get an accurate reading with this device?


4 consecutive readings in a minute? No wonder you're getting widely varying readings. Your wrist or arm is not having time to recover from the constriction of the cuff. Try doing only two and waiting at least 30 to 40 seconds in between.

The best way to do it, is take one reading in your left arm and the other in your right arm. If they match or are within a few points of each other, the cuff is probably accurate.

Also, on your next visit to your doctor, take your cuff with you. After they take your vital signs at the doctors office, properly apply your cuff and compare your cuff's reading with theirs. If they are within a few points of each other that's fine.

How to check youself / blood pressure for accuracy i get to different reading the first time then upon checking for accuracy the second time the reading is always different


Hello Dear

All Digital equipments vary in its reading. To get the accurate reading take three readings one after the other and then the average of the reading is the accurate one.
Usually the readings varies plus minus 2 or 3 to the accurate reading.

Hope the answer will help, please rate the answer.

I doubt in correctness of reading,my age 58


If you are doubting the Blood Pressure and Pulse readings, there must be a reason for these doubts. But, you failed to explain why you doubted it. Does the BP reading seem unusually high or low? Is the pulse rate, what you expected it to be? Keep in mind, age doesn't always play a huge role in hypertension. It's your general overall health, eating habits, smoking, drinking, etc. In other words, you overall life style, as well as your family's medical history.

These wrist monitors are fairly accurate if applied to the wrist correctly, you keep your wrist at heart level and you don't move during the time that monitor is operating.

If you have doubts, take the monitor with you to your next doctor's appointment. They will probably check your BP with an arm cuff. After they do that, use your wrist monitor correctly and compare it to what the reading was with the doctor's reading. One or two points difference is not a big deal. More than that is.

Hope this helps.

I have a OMRON HEM-608 blood pressure monitor that I've had for several years. What is the best way to determine if it is still reading correctly?


Take it with you on your next visit to your doctor. Have them check your BP with their equipment and then use yours. If both are within a few points of each other, yours is accurate.

Blood pressure reading is not consistent and accurate.


blood pressure reading is not really consistent. for example; the reading of client's blood pressure at 8AM it doesn't mean that you have the same reading on the next minute/ hour. because the blood flows is not also consistent.it varies on people..for example; he has a reading of 100/80 it doesn't mean he has 100/80 on the reading..it varies on what the clients doing prior to that reading.but on those client with cardiac problems it should really monitor the Blood pressure closely. for that simple negligence it would the client to enfarction

I have OMRON HEM-650, but it does not give accurate results. Can you give me suggestion on which one is accurate and easy to take with? the brand, the model...


None of the finger or wrist cuffs are accurate. The slightest movement of your finger or hand will give a false reading. There are a few nice cuffs for your are and they are all pretty good. Relax for a few minutes before you take your pressure and ake it in the same position each time. Hold still and don't take a deep breath while it's testing. It is normal to have 20-40 points difference from one reading to the next. If it looks too high, sit still for 2 or 3 minutes and try again.
