My New Fitness Watch Arrives and Some More Van Work

New watch

Well, it’s much more than a watch. It does blood pressure and a bunch of other stuff too, besides time.

Blood pressure

I got this mainly to monitor my blood pressure throughout the day. I’ve had a few higher readings of my blood pressure lately and want to get a better idea what’s going on. My corn allergy seems to kick it up a bit when I get hit which is often.

Anyway, I played around figuring out how it works. It connects to my cell phone and stores information there. I still haven’t figured it all out yet, but I’ve figured out enough to get  it going for


A bit warm today

It was a bit warm today, so I spent a lot of time just puttering around the yard with the chickens.

Another try at the bracket for the van

I did make another bracket for my van to hold the solenoids for the two electric fans on the radiator.

Not happy

I wasn’t happy with the first bracket I made and I’m still not happy with this one either. The bracket needs to hold the two solenoids in place and out of the way of other stuff and still be easy to do maintenance on them if need be.bracket


As you can see, it’s a mess down there and I think I can do better, so I’ll try making one more bracket and hope it works out better than this one.wores


If I can get the bracket right, the wires should be able to be fixed up a bit and the two fuses should be easier to get to when they need to be checked out.

Nice day.

    Having had many of these watches over the years, I don’t think any of them are THAT accurate, but they can give you a good idea something’s up when you start getting high readings. Even my “real” blood pressure machines give me crazy readings sometimes.

    Will be interested to see how accurate your new purchase is on the bp. Calibrating with a real bp cuff. But maybe you know it’s pretty accurate already. You’ve certainly got a nice low heart rate!
