That’s because the wrist arteries are narrower and not as deep under your skin as those of the upper arm. Secondly, wrist blood pressure monitors are very small and portable, but then what is the use of portability when they won’t show an accurate reading. That’s why I would recommend you go for the arm blood pressure monitor if you are looking for a blood pressure machine for home use. It has proven to be very effective and also accurate when it comes to readings, and this is all that you will ever need from a digital blood pressure monitor. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
