[Equipment] Wrist Oximeter CMS-50F
#1
Caution about the accuracy of the CMS-50F wrist probe/recorder.
I bought one from eBay, the readings were 5-7% low. The price is considerably lower than those listed in Amazon. The price I paid was $80 with free shipping. At first it seems to be a nifty gadget. However, its readings were not very accurate, although both the hardware and software work. I have returned it for a refund.
Sincerely,
hiddendragon

OK, I'll bite. What did you use to determine the 5-7% difference?

Compare with AllynWelch Vitals Station and several other finger oixmeters.

That's not unusual with devices made in China. I don't think they have strict specifications compliance under control yet. Good to know you get a good unit. Anyway, the manufacturer, Contec, does not specify the wrist oximeter is a medical device.
