I bought a similar but cheap one from Aldi 5-6 years ago and its been fantastic. However, now i think its dying. So I found this deal and bought it.

What I have learned from mine is..DO NOT USE DOLLAR STORE BATTERIES. I buy the 24-30 packs every year around xmas and they work great.

My readings, from the Welby Brand ,were incredibly accurate. Despite the large number of naysayers who say otherwise.

Because my Welby is now dying and I am used to checking it every other day, I went looking for a replacement. This is what I found.

They had a similar one for pennies more...FDK SPEAKING WRIST CUFF BP MONITOR for $13.14. I figured the non speaking might be better because I already hate when my computer speaks when I don't want it too.

I thought I might get 10 per cent back from tcb but only got 1 so would suggest Discover for 5.

I love buying from walmart because of easy returns in store. I go there once a week or so anyway. If this does not work like I expect, I will return it. But I don't listen to past naysayers from 20 years ago. The instore versions are higher, no surprise. I would buy another Welby if they had them at this time. They only have them once or twice a year.

I got mine yesterday. My only comparison is the old Welby from Aldi that is years old that I think has died on me. The welby has a larger face, its about 4.5x5.5 mm whereas the bluestone is about 5.5x3.5 mm. But, I can still easily read the scores without glasses despite being 56.

It seems to work fine but I have not been using it very long to be sure and the Welby no longer works so I can't really compare them against each other.

My only disappointment is I thought I was getting 10% cash B ack but I only got 1%. Im going to keep using it and unless I happen to find a cheaper one or it gives me reason to believe the scores are way off. if Aldi has one in the next 6-8 weeks, I would probably buy it and return this one just because I know the Welby lasted for many years.

I had called Welby and they told me to remove the batteries for a half hour and I tried that but it did not fix it. And in follow up calls, they don't answer or return my calls.

But, it gave me 4-6 years of good usage so I guess it might just be how they die?

Wrist cuffs generally are frowned upon for inaccuracy.

Deal ended. They are now $19.59 at Amazon & $24.54 at Walmart.

As best I can tell, and I have been checking it daily, it is accurate and I am glad I bought it.

I stopped by a health fair yesterday and the upper arm was very close to my wrist score. (Less than 10 points difference)

There are always a ton of people that chime in on how inaccurate they are. And maybe they were, 20-30 years ago. Not now.

Same people probably throw any expired eye drops. Ive been buying them cheap for 20 years and work just fine saving me 70%.

Walmart still has an FDK models for $13.14.

I found a seller from china that has them for $9.99 but I don't mind paying a few dollars more to have 90 days to return it to walmart in the event I am not happy with it. I offered $7 and they countered with $9.70

If there was a $5 price difference, I might take a chance on the one from china. (Although Im sure walmarts come from there. They might be of better quality)
