    Yes, I’ve had my device for one year. It consistently gives me stage 2 and hypertensive crisis readings. Readings at my doctors office is always 20 lower. My reading yesterday was 201/121, without having any symptoms.

    I agree. My readings are always 10-25 higher than the Dr.

    Thank you.  This confirms my suspicions.  I suppose it's better that it reads higher than lower and that so long as there is reasonable precision from day to day, it may not be a huge deal that it is NOT accurate.  You can still use it to tell how you are doing.

    Han, I might agree if it were consistent. You know, like always 15% higher (or lower). Or always exactly 20 points more. In my case I need to be able to report to my Dr. ad need to be reasonably accurate. I’m afraid if Withings doesn’t give me any hope / solution / correction soon I’ll have to send it back to Amazon.

    Agree those are all good points. 

    I am a physician and would prefer the numbers be accurate as well as precise.  However, to be honest I'd just be happy if patients measured their blood pressure and took note of any real day to day changes.  So, if the upgrades make it easier for you to measure regularly, that could be a valid trade off.

    Your comments about consistency are more concerning.  

    I returned the unit a while ago so I can't confirm that although I suspected it. 

    I prefer and still use the older version at home.  I wonder if they bothered to have physicians involved in testing their unit before they took it to market.  I would have had a lot to say about it, probably could have saved them a lot of money.
