Smart bracelet readings....

I got myself a knockoff budget Fitbit from a voucher website recently - more for the pedometer but it also comes with heart rate and blood pressure readings. Some of the bp results it comes up with are really alarmingly high - are they likely to be accurate or can I relax? The heart rate isn't far out....

The reading could well be a load of bollocks but why not put your mind at rest and go to a local pharmacy and get your blood pressure checked by a professional? Lots of pharmacies offer this service (see Lloyds for example http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/en/info/blood-pressure-testing ). High blood pressure is a major risk factor for strokes and heart disease but very manageable with treatment so important to find out I think. Good luck!

I'd also check it out to be sure. There was an article a while ago where a Fitbit showed a odd heart rate than usual and it turned out to be blood clots.

It can't do any harm can it even if it just puts your mind at rest.
